Shaving vs. Waxing vs. Electrolysis

Posted by Nashua Electrolysis on July 25, 2018

It’s an age-old debate. At least, it’s a debate as old as waxing’s popularity in the United States. For some, deciding to shave, wax, or seek electrolysis in New Hampshire is nothing more than a personal preference. Whichever fits best into your schedule is what you tend to choose. However, many don’t realize that finding the time for electrolysis now, means never having to find the time in your schedule for hair removal again, once treatments are completed. Here are the pros and cons to the different kinds of hair removal.

Everybody knows the basics of shaving. You need the shaving cream, the razor, and a sink or shower. Of course, there are perks to shaving. For one, it’s convenient. You can shave as it fits into your schedule, and you only have to go as far as your bathroom. On top of that, shaving is relatively cheap, so long as your razors last you a few uses. However, there are some downfalls. If you don’t have a steady hand, you can knick your skin and bleed a bit. Shaving also results in stubble and razor burn. Besides the frequency of shaving, shaving also comes with cleanup and can lead to ingrown hairs.


Waxing is often used as the butt of the joke in comedy films and sitcoms. Beyond that, waxing does have some benefits. For one thing, waxing lasts longer than shaving because it rips the hair out by the root. Another perk of waxing is that usually somebody else does it for you. Having somebody rip out your hair isn’t always pleasant. It can be painful. There’s also the cost of waxing. Depending on how often you have to go, it can add up quickly.


Permanent removal of your unwanted hair does take a series of treatments. Once the treatments start, you will no longer have to spend the time to maintain your unwanted facial and body hair. Over time the hairs will become finer and will totally disappear. The cost is affordable and once the hairs are gone, they are GONE.


Given the pros and cons of shaving, waxing, and electrolysis in New Hampshire, the choice should be easy. Electrolysis in New Hampshire is the surefire way to never deal with your unwanted hair again. For any questions on electrolysis, contact Nashua Electrolysis today or visit them online!
