Permanent Hair Removal in Idaho

We all have unwanted hair that bothers or embarrasses us and that we would like to get rid of forever. But are you familiar with all of your hair removal options? High Valley Dermatology uses several different techniques to remove unwanted hair. Simply choose the procedure that meets your needs and let us do the rest

Not all methods of hair removal can be permanent hair removal in Idaho

  • Shaving: When shaving, hair is removed by a thin, sharp razor blade that cuts the hair very close to the skin. When you use a razor, it’s recommended that you use some type of lubricant such as a shaving cream or soap. Shaving lubricants reduce the friction between the razor and your skin resulting in a smoother cut without damaging the skin. The pros of shaving include the instant hair removal and that is cost effective. Drawbacks include fast regrowth (usually 3 to 5 days) and increased chances of getting ingrown hairs. Electric razors reduce the chance of cutting your skin but have a higher rate of irritation. Shaving is effective on all areas of the body. Shaving, however, is not an option for permanent hair removal in Idaho.
  • Plucking: Plucking and tweezing hair pulls the hair out by the root. It’s mainly used for cleaning up small areas on your eyebrows or other stray hairs on your face and body. It can be painful and should not be used for large areas. It is not a permanent form of hair removal, as the hair will grow back between 3 to 8 weeks. Plucking also increases the occurrence of ingrown hairs, as the hairs may get broken off and grow back under the skin. You’ll need to keep a sharp pair of tweezers as a dull pair could break hairs instead of removing them.
  • Chemical Treatments: Hair removal creams will dissolve the entire hair shaft but are not a method of permanent hair removal in Idaho as the hair will grow back in a couple of days to weeks. Creams can also be harmful if they are left on for too long. Hair removal creams and lotions should be tested on small areas to check for an allergic reaction before applying to larger areas. Creams can be easily used on legs, arms or the bikini area.
  • Waxing: Waxing can be done at home or at a beauty salon with a trained esthetician. You or an esthetician will spread a hot sticky wax on the area and then, based on the type of waxed use, the wax is quickly removed in a flicking motion. The wax grabs the hair that is long enough to adhere to it and pulls it out by the root, leaving smooth hairless skin. Waxing can be painful but the results last from 3 to 6 weeks. Waxing can be done to any part of the body but can be more painful on sensitive skin. It doesn’t always remove all the hair and the area may need to be tweezed.
