The answer to this question depends on the type of hair and skin you have. Most people will be able to remove hair using a cream on her legs and armpits unless your hair is unusually thick. If you are trying to remove hair, of course, a second application may do the trick. Some people try to remove hair dogged by leaving the unit for long periods of time, but this is not always a good idea. Your skin may become irritated or inflamed by leaving a cream for longer than recommended by the manufacturer.

Topical creams or depilatories “have improved efficiency and ease of use in recent years. Now there are products available that do not have an unpleasant odor and are not as awkward to use because it used to be. You can find depilatories that are specially formulated for use in different parts of the body. If you are trying to remove unwanted hair from your face, look for a product designed solely for that purpose.

Depilatories remove hair by reacting with the structure of the protein in the hair shaft and actually begin to dissolve the hair so that it can be removed from the skin. There are many benefits of this method of hair removal. First, the products are inexpensive and are available in pharmacies. Depilatory creams can also be found in discount stores like Wal-Mart and Target.

A second benefit is that, while there is no skin reaction, this process is more or less pain free, unlike many other hair removal methods. Anyone can use these products in the privacy of your own home, without going to a spa or hire a professional with laser treatments and waxing.

An added bonus is that some people believe that hair grows back softer and finer after they have used a depilatory cream a few times. Some hair removal creams claim to remove hair permanently, but the degree of success depends on what type of hair you are trying to eliminate.

If you are looking for a low cost, easy option for temporary hair removal, depilatories can be a good option for you to try. Although the results are almost always temporary, lasting longer than shaving unwanted hair and the hair will not be like the course when it does grow back.
