Depending on your lifestyle and the part of your body from which the hair grows, some hair removal options for men are better than others. Let’s explore the world of manscaping!

Based on the table above, it can be seen that some hair removing techniques are better than others depending on where the body hair is located. Shaving can be done in most areas of the body, but it is very time consuming and requires high maintenance. Depilatories works best with thin scarce hair as it is usually a gel or cream type that dissolves the hair follicles. Electrolysis is a very painful process that is why it is not

advised to use this technique for large areas of the body but it does remove hair permanently. For hair removal in the upper and lower torso it is apparent that, in the long run, the best option is laser hair removal.
