Back Hair Removal - Waxing

For best results with back hair removal follow these suggestions:

Avoid showering and making the hair wet prior to waxing. Hair absorbs the water making it soft and less likely to adhere well to the wax. Tough hair is easier to pull off.

Be sure to test a small area of skin first to make sure there is no acute sensitivity or allergic reaction to chest hair removal with waxing.

Hair should be at least 1/8 inch long. If it isn't wait until it reaches this length.

Be sure to wash the skin thoroughly and dry it well beforehand to remove any lotions or oils which may prevent the wax from adhering closely to the skin.

Heat the wax carefully so as not to overheat and thus burn the skin when applying. Test on a small area first. The consistency should be soft rather than runny.

If pain and discomfort is a main concern use a pain reducing gel or cream available from pharmacists. These solutions should be applied 30 to 60 minutes before waxing so the skin is numbed beforehand.

Apply a thin layer of wax in the direction of the hair growth and peel back with a rapid movement close to the skin. Do not pull up or out, rather pull back.

Clean the skin with a warm moist towel afterwards to remove excess wax.

Avoid wearing tight clothing over freshly waxed areas to minimize the risk of irritation and ingrown hairs.

After 24-48 hours exfoliate the skin (with a Loofa sponge for example) to prevent the dead skin from accumulating and causing hair to become ingrown after chest hair removal.

Back Hair Removal - Sugaring

The sugar paste is warmed and then applied thinly to the skin in the direction of the hair growth. Reusable cotton strips are then pressed firmly onto the paste and then sharply pulled back thus removing the hair with the paste.

To remove the hair by the root it must be at least 1/4 inch or 6 mm long. Longer hair should be trimmed to this length.

Hair must be clean and dry before starting. Remove all creams and oils, towel dry and then apply talcum powder to ensure the skin is completely dry.

Apply the sugaring paste in the direction of the hair growth.

When pressing the cotton strip on top of the paste, leave a small section at the end free so it will be easy to hold when pulling back.

If using a spatula to apply the paste use the edge not the flat side. This will help ensure a very thin layer is applied.

Pull the strip back sharply against the direction of the hair growth. Do not lift the strip up or out away from the skin.

Hold the skin firmly with one hand while you pull the strip back sharply with the other hand.

When heating the paste, either by microwave or oven, be absolutely sure the paste is just warm to the touch not hot. Otherwise burns to the skin may result from sugaring back hair removal.

If using hot water to warm the paste container, be sure not to allow water into the paste. Sugar paste is water soluble and will be spoiled if the container is not sealed properly and water gets in.

Back Hair Removal - Laser Treatment

Back hair removal by laser treatment can take between 1 to 3 hours depending on the size of the area to be treated. At least 2 or 3 treatments are necessary.

An absolute requirement is that the hair must be darker than the surrounding skin. White skin with dark hair responds best.

Persons with dark, coarse hair are the easiest to treat as dark hair contains melanin, a dark pigment which attracts the laser light so more laser energy is absorbed.

Fewer sessions are needed. Light colored hair is more difficult to treat and blonde and red hair are very difficult to treat requiring multiple sessions with varied results.

As for pain with laser back hair removal, this varies from person to person depending on their sensitivity. Some have described the sensation to a slight sting on the skin. Others say it feels like a pinch on the skin.

The cost of laser back hair removal can vary according to geographic area. Use your local yellow pages and telephone a few laser clinics to get comparisons.

In Conclusion: Shaving, waxing, sugaring are all very economical methods for getting rid of unwanted hair on the back. Of course, there is a downside. They need repeating fairly regularly, depending on your rate of hair growth.

That's why many choose to swallow hard, and just pay the money for laser hair removal. It is expensive but not as much as electrolysis which treats every hair individually. On an area the size of the back the cost can be considerable.

Laser treatment is therefore a good compromise as it is the only other permanent back hair removal method.
