I recall reading an article a year or two ago about scientists who discovered some form of light or a combination of light pulses which actually put your hair regrowth into hibernation for a long period of time, which reduced how often you had to shave. They said that if a woman were to shave her legs and then utilizing the light it would keep her legs smooth for weeks or months.

If anyone recalls the article please post it here.

The treatment involves passing an intense flash of light or pulse through the prism, which directs the healing rays to the affected area. The light treatment is initially administered to prevent possible damage to the skin and to ascertain its tolerance level. The doctor proceeds only after he is convinced that the patient's skin is capable of undergoing further intensive treatment. Intense Pulse Light therapy involves passing intense light through the tissue of the skin until it strikes the hair shafts or the hair roots, where the melanin is located. The light striking the dark-colored melanin gets converted into heat energy causing most of the hair roots and shafts to vaporize. The heat radiated by the light also destroys the hair-producing papila or the entire hair follicle. The treatment is usually performed every 3-4 weeks.


Intense Pulse Light Therapy

Interesting stuff.

I work from home, I'm allowed to be a gorilla.
But when I worked from the office, shaving daily was a regular thing... I don't believe we're meant to shave daily... hence my ingrown hairs when I do it too often lol.

That is why I dont ever shave really close. I just sue an electric razor to remove the "shadow" and look decent. If you felt my face it isn't really that smooth but it looks fine.

My girlfriend went to a laser clinic and has had hair remove permanently by laser. If it can be used on sensitive parts of the body, I don't see why it couldn't be used to permanently remove facial hair as well. Only that no laser clinic seem to offer treatment for just that part of the body. Everything else is basically covered (no pun intended).

That is just gross! But funny!

Stuble is sexy, beards are gross!

Nair burns like heck, a womans perspective.

Nair is your friend! Believe it or not my ex used this on his . and face and it worked. He did say it was a little uncomfortable while on but he used it quite often.

Is there a cut-off point of 'sexiness' between stubble and beard? At what point does stubble become gross?

My theory is that women need to shave everywhere otherwise we'd end being like velcro. A simple hug and we'd be stuck together, forever.

OMG, what am i saying. Please throw away any razors and Nair's; let the loving begin

You know that really short shadow beard, not inches.
I am not a fan of hair other than ., pits and privates. Leg hair ok for guys.

Actually it's not an acid it's a base and those creams are made from a chemical called sodium hydroxide or a close variation. When it comes in contact with your hair it denatures the protein and practically melts the hair inside the follicle.

It all depends on how sensitive your skin is on whether you should use this stuff. I break out in hives, so I wouldn't recommend it.

Our Ancestors designed us with bad teeth and facial hair- to keep us from going back to the apes when marooned on backward planets like Earth.

It takes Tech to fix teeth and get a proper shave.

Not sure if you have ever noticed, but native americans had no facial hair. My grandmother was a cherokee indian, its funny, I have three brothers and none of them can grow a beard and only a scant mustache. And none of them have chest hair... its in the DNA is guess. Now while as long as the sun is shining, I can be in the house and tan nearly, I do have to shave my legs and I think that is not fair!

I use a hair clipper(those barbers use) to cut my facial hair, it leaves some hair behind and I like it!

Regarding pubes... Don't cut or even shave it, it will smell!! I like hairy women btw!

I usually always keep stubble. I'm supposed to be clean shaved all the time, but shaving no matter what brand or razor I try, tears my face up. Now I use mug soap with the brush and a straight razor,seems to irritate less being almost 100% natural, keeps me from shaving twice a week as well.Has anyone read the amount of chemicals on a can of Edge gel! I have part indian blood and couldn't even grow sideburns until I was almost 18. Plus alot of girls seem to like stubble as well.

I did try some nair once..burned like crazy, and smelled terrible.


Then theres Nads lol...due to the name I cant take it serious. But the infomercial is really funny hearing them say how great nads is on their upper lip

Well without turning this into a naughty story lets just say my wife complained about all she had to go through, hair removal wise while we men didn't have too... Agreeing with her point of view I allowed her to coat me with some of that hair removal cream... you can get past the smell but if left on to long you get one heck of a chemical burn! trust me I walked bowlegged for a week... no sir been there done that have the tee shirt as proof... its good old fashioned razors for me buddy!


I read your post, then I read your name and I literally laughed out loud. Thanks for giving me an unexpected lol.

I prefer the old fashioned way of shaving. Straight blade or safety razor, soap in mug with a brush, this will give you the closest possible shave, but you will have to learn a bit of skill with these because being careless you'll end up with a cut up face. I'd also invest in a good pre shave oil and aftershave, be it a moisturizer or a splash, depends on what works for your face. Doing it this way has saved me lots of money in the long run instead of buying shaving cream, disposable razors and all that stuff all the time.

why cant men use a cream to remove beard hair just like the cream women use on there legs \ arms etc. then after a few minutes they just rinse away the hair.. this cream kills of the hair and keeps the hairs growing for a few weeks..so why cant men get a cream to do the same thing?..just think once every 2 weeks rubbing some cream on your face \ beard area and then a simple rinse to remove the hair and thats it for another 2 weeks....no more 5 o'clock shadow or your wife \ girlfriend saying your stubble is giving me a beard rash when kissing....maybe there's to many company's making money of shaving products to allow anyone to market a cream...... any thoughts


Yeah, why can't women rub cream on their legs to remove hair, instead of using a razor?
