The best methods of removing hair permanently are electrolysis and laser treatments.
Electrolysis works better on smaller areas such as the face, since each hair follicle has to be treated individually.
If you have a lot of back hair to be removed, there are better options available for you.
One of these options is laser back hair removal.
If you are a good candidate for this procedure, then it may be the best permanent solution.
Laser treatments work most effectively with people who have a light skin tone and darker hair.
The laser beam targets the melanin in the hair so it will not recognize lighter hair.
One of the advantages of the laser method is that a large area can be treated at the same time.
Several treatments are still usually required to get all of the hair and to achieve permanent results.
While the cost of this method is more than shaving or waxing, you may spend less in the long run since at some point you will be done spending money for good.
Hair removal creams or depilatories are another option for getting rid of unwanted back hair.
There are a few creams on the market today that do advertise permanent results.
With continued use of depilatories, most people find that the hair that does grow back is finer and not as noticeable.
This solution is good enough for some men who do not want to deal with the pain of waxing or the hassle of continual shaving.
While you can apply the creams in the privacy of your own home, you may need help with reaching all of the areas of your back.
Another issue with these products is that they can have a strong odor.
Look for a product that advertises a fresh fragrance if you are bothered by bad smells.
It is a good idea to do some research on the different hair removal methods before you take the step to spend a lot of time and money.
But keep in mind that one method that worked well for one person may not be as effective with your skin and hair type.
Since this is a pretty common issue with men, there are always more products being developed and introduced.
