- Hair grows back coarsely and more stubbly in 1 to 4 days
- When Shaving bothersome terminal hair, fine vellus (or light hairs) may also be removed, causing potentially bigger problems.
- May cause PFB (pseudofolliculitis barbae) and ingrown hairs
- May cut the skin, particularly with a dull razor
So the point is, shaving is a perfectly safe use of hair removal but will not get rid of the hair permanently. I often tell my electrolysis clients if they must “deal” with unwanted hairs in-between treatments that shaving is the best method, as it will not slow down the process of permanent hair removal with electrolysis.
