There are products suitable for sensitive skin and reduce the risk of allergy to this type of hair removal.

Disadvantages: This method does not start from the root hair, but it shaved at skin level. I only recommend this method of hair removal in case of emergency, as the hair comes out more strongly, although not as much is said. Hair grows an average of 6.3 millimeters per month in the armpits and twice as fast, so i do not recommend this as a method of hair removal.

Electric razor

Advantages: It is a very effective method of hair removal which removes the hair root through a series of small forceps. As the first models were quite painful, the new hair now employ the new distribution systems such as tweezers, massage or cool accessories.They are fast, comfortable and clean. As extracted from the hair root, if used every four weeks, hair will gradually decline as some call this method as semi-permanent. At present they have accessories like special heads for sensitive areas and to exfoliate the skin beforehand.

It was initially advised three to four sessions and now the average is about eight intervals of 2-3 months, although this always depends on the type of hair and the treatment area.

Disadvantages: It is too early to know whether this is truly the definitive hair removal technique. The sessions can last from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the treated area. The biggest difficulty with the laser method is not only that the hair contains melanin, but also the skin. The eyebrow is an area not recommended because of its proximity to the eyes (requiring special protection). The sensation is similar to a burn, but being fast and better tolerated. People with darker skin feel a little tingling or itching. For highly sensitive to pain it is recommended to apply an anesthetic cream two hours before treatment. Immediately after the application of the laser. This is the most expensive method of hair removal.
