DIY hair removal
In-office laser or IPL hair removal treatments can cost thousands. But now it is possible to actually own your own device, for a fraction of the cost. The Tria Hair Removal Laser 4X is the only FDA-cleared laser available for home use. The device is a favorite of hair-free-lovin’ celebs like Jenny McCarthy.
How it works: A pulse disables active hairs from below the skin surface and prevents new ones from growing. Results can be permanent.(Tria, $449)
Parissa Quick & Easy Wax Strips for Legs & Body are a mess-free, express hair remover that's ready to use. Large wax strips come with a clear backing for Ferrari-fast hair removal, just like the pros. Includes a vial of azulene oil to soothe skin and prevent ingrown hair.
How it works: Press on the wax strips in the direction of hair growth. While holding skin taut, zip off the strips immediately to pull hair out at the root. Results can last up to six weeks.(Parissa, $13)
