How to Remove Body Hair for Men

For men who don't like body hair, there are a lot of ways to remove it. Some of them take a lot of work, and some of them can be rather painful. But that doesn't mean they are all painful or ineffective. The process can be done professionally or at home with a few tools.

Shave it off. This process is best performed in the bathroom in front of the sink. Lay out the newspaper and stand on it. This is used to catch hair. Take out your shears and trim off all of your body hair as close to the skin as you can get. Now wet your hairy areas with warm water, lather up and shave.

Get waxed. Waxing is a process where hot wax is applied to the body with a tool that looks like a tongue depressor. It is then spread out over an area of hair and ripped off. This is usually done at specialty spas and salons.

Get laser treatment. Laser hair removal is a procedure in which beams of light are sent down on the skin's surface. This then kills the hair-producing follicles while not damaging the skin.

Get zapped. Electrolysis is a process in which tiny needles send a shock of electricity to individual hair shafts, causing the cells to die. The hair then falls out.

Slather on some cream. There are various hair removal creams or depilatories. Spread these across the skin, let them set for a while and then wipe them off with a towel. They dissolve proteins that are found in the hair--which, in turn, causes the hair to become weak and fall out.
