FAQ - Why Is Leg Hair Waxing So Painful and What Are the Alternatives For Permanent Leg Hair Removal

Oct 12, 2007
Waxing of hair; be it from the legs or any other part of the body is a method of temporary hair removal. You are removing hair from the root. Waxing is the application of a sticky substance to skin. The resin binds hair to a strip of cloth, which is yanked off (usually in the opposite direction of hair growth). This removes the wax along with the hair and dead skin cells, leaving the skin smooth. (just typing this makes me feel queasy). It can be an advantage to people with sensitive skin, though the cons do outweigh the positive aspects.

It is the process by which the waxing removes hair in the opposite direction of hair growth that accounts for the pain when suffered waxing. It is similar to men shaving or even when you go against the grain when woodworking; when you oppose Mother Nature natural order there will be resistance. This unfortunately leads to pain and waxing.

Waxing has other disadvantages when removed against the direction of hair growth; the wax strip may shift hair follicles, causing hair to commence to grow in several directions. This may cause hair growth to be more visible and make other methods of hair removal more difficult. Waxing of hair as all ladies can lead to people experience ingrown hairs, red bumps, and minor bleeding.

There are now many ways to combat unwanted hair from the body. There are depilatory creams but with this method the hair is removed at the surface rather than the root. Within a few days, the hair can be seen at the surface. With these techniques, hair tends to grow back in a rough and troublesome stubble.

The newest way is to use laser hair removal that use laser light to remove undesirable hair. The laser works by a principle called selective photothermolysis. The laser is pulsed (turned on) for a millisecond emitting a beam of light on to the skin. The laser system is intended for everlasting hair reduction emits wavelengths of light calculated to be absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin). If the surrounding skin is relatively light compared to the color of the hair, then the entire energy of the laser will be concentrated in the hair shaft, effectively destroying it without affecting the skin or follicle.

Waxing your hair is indeed painful and if this is the case for you there are other techniques that can be explored with laser hair removal being the newest technique out there.
