Hair Removal in Chicago
From the Ancient Egyptians who used sugar and wax to remove unwanted hair, to contemporary aesthetics practices which use lasers and chemicals to break down the hair at the root—modern clients have a lot of options when it comes to hair removal in Chicago!
Hair Removal Methods
Many local hair and nail salons also feature waxing services. Waxing is a great way to quickly tame unruly eyebrows, remove rogue chin hairs, or create a smooth and hair-free bikini line.
Sugaring is another great option for removing hair from larger areas on the body including legs, arms, back, and underarms, and is known to leave the skin extra soft and conditioned.
During the sugaring or waxing service, product is applied in an even and thin coat to the skin, and the technician will use either their fingers or a strip of fabric to peel away the wax or sugar, ensuring the hair is removed cleanly from the skin at the root.
Threading, which originated in Asia, has been popularized in US salons as a quick and relatively pain-free way to shape eyebrows into clean arches.
Dermatology clinics and some med spas also offer permanent hair removal options that can keep you thin out or remove densely thick hair in unwanted areas.
Permanent hair removal is a great option for people with sensitive skin, or for those don’t want to have to shower daily, or go through the discomfort of waxing, and works by damaging the hair follicle so that it no longer grows from the root.
While electrolysis and laser hair removal are great options that remove hair for good, it require multiple sessions in order for you to see the full effect of hair removal, and can be more expensive than other non-permanent hair removal solutions.

After the hair removal service, your aesthetician or waxer will use a soothing solution to calm the skin. You should be sure to wash as usual with a gentle cleanser and may apply a light lotion or soothing balm or serum as directed by your technician.
