Shaving is the easiest way of hair removal. Also being the most economical from all the methods, it is best when used only in urgent situations. Shaving should be best left for men shaving their beards. Women should shave only hair removing needs to be need urgently and there is no time for other methods. Shaving does not remove the hair from roots and causes re-growth in 1-3 days. Frequent shaving can cause skin irritation, black skin and more thick and coarse hairs.

Waxing may cost slight itching and redness, in which case apply a good moisturizer.

You can even get it done at beauty salons.

Laser hair removal is the most effective and efficient method so far for permanent hair removal. Current is passed using a laser gun into hair follicles burning and destroying the roots of the hair and preventing them to grow back. The sessions are somewhat painful as the current is passed into your skin. Laser results in 70-90% reduction in hairs. It is most effective for dark and coarse hairs and on medium to dark skin tone. Multiple laser sittings may be required depending on the density of hair. Laser treatment is expensive and may cost around Rs. 1000 just for upper lips. Cost may vary depending on the area on which laser is taken. Laser treatment should be done by a licensed practitioner.
