How to Stop Hair Growth on Your Fingers

We all have a certain amount of unwanted hair on our bodies, be it the back, neck, chest or upper lip. These "trouble spots" vary according to the person. Some people find hair on their fingers one of the most unattractive and undesirable features on their body. And when looking for options to get rid of this hair, they'll most likely run across a myriad of methods for hair removal. Most of these are just temporary solutions to your hair woes, like waxing, shaving or even plucking. To completely stop hair growth on your fingers, there's really just one reliable option--electrolysis.

Set up a consultation with an electrologist professional. You'll want to see if electrolysis is right for you and get answer to any questions before the procedure, such as the length of recovery time, the necessary skin care before and after electrolysis, the cost and any needed medications.

Keep your hands relatively clean and dry prior to the procedure. The area to be worked on should be free of pollutants; however, you'll also need to make sure that the skin (and hair) isn't too moist, as this may cause the hair to lay flat to your fingers. Having the hair laying in this direction can actually make it difficult to remove the follicle.

Consider taking a pain reliever prior to your electrolysis appointment. This procedure will hurt, so the added pain relief will help alleviate some of the discomfort.

Set aside some time for the procedure, anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour for each session (you'll need a number of sessions to completely stop hair growth). This, of course, is dependent on the amount of hair on your fingers. Remember, electrolysis is essentially hair removal, one follicle at a time.

Return to the electrolysis studio every week (or every other week) for follow-up sessions. Depending on the amount of hair you're looking to permanently remove, you may need to have anywhere from 10 to 30 sessions in full.
