5 Methods of Ingrown Hair Removal for Men

Ingrown hair removal is not just for women anymore; men have started removing hair from their body as well. We don’t mean just their faces; we mean everywhere, including their backs or pubic area. What is leading men to remove hair from their bodies in this way?  There is no definite answer, and it is different for every male.  Young, old, rich, poor; men all over the world are waxing, shaving, having electrolysis, tweezing, trimming, and getting laser hair removal as well. The back is one place that males of all ages are removing hair from because women do like smooth skin. We like to touch our men, and the back is one of the favorite places to touch.

Why would a man remove his ingrown hair in pubic area? It can be unsightly, increase body odor, irritate the skin, make it itchy and cause infection.  He may want to lose it for a sport that he is participating in, or to make himself more attractive for his lady friend. But whatever the reason, it is a growing trend among males today.

So what methods are men using to remove that excess hair from their backs? Well there are a few methods that can be used.

  • Waxing:  this involves spreading hot wax onto the desired hair removal area and removing it with a porous material such as muslin.  Waxing will pull out both hair and root.
  • Sugaring:  this is similar to waxing but it uses sugar paste and then is removed in the same way as waxing.
  • Electrolysis: a needle zaps hair at the root with a small electric current and kills it. It offers permanent results but there is no guarantee of its effectiveness.
  • Laser Treatments: an FDA (US Food and Drug Administration) approved way of removing hair.  A laser beam basically kills the hair follicles. Depending on your skin pigmentation and the color of your hair, the hair absorbs the laser energy. Dark hair is easier to treat, so some people may not be candidates for this. It is a costly method of removal.
  • Shaving – this is impossible to do by yourself and it can be embarrassing to find someone to help you unless you’re married and your spouse is willing to do it for you.

Each of these has their pros and cons whether it be a painful procedure, just costly or not as effective as the some of the others. Try the one that appears to be best for you and your wallet.
