Is Hair Removal for Men More Painful?

The internet is full of videos of men going thru waxing, maybe over a lost bet or a dare from a friend, with an end result that is not too pleasant despite achieving a hairless outcome. However, women may go through some pain too, but is hair removal for men more painful? Well it depends on the method and area of body the hair is removed.

There are many types of body hair removal. From the more traditional waxing, to more advanced IPL hair removal that uses a laser. Both women and men hair removal options are vast, ranging from price and pain levels. The most basic of hair removal for men would be a personal grooming option of just using a razor blade to shave.

Men know a thing or two about shaving, as most would shave their beards and even chest hair. However some would be more careful with shaving other sensitive parts of their bodies in fear of cutting themselves.Armpit hair removal with shaving is still relatively safe if done correctly, however results are superb as it will leave little stubs of hair. One way to get a clean and hairless armpit is by plucking it all out, but we all know how much that would hurt.
