Although laser hair removal offers a totally permanent way to get rid of unwanted hair, it’s often not the first method of hair removal that people try. Low commitment methods like shaving, waxing, and tweezing are standard. Some people have tried depilatory creams, which are designed to painlessly dissolve hair at the root. Unfortunately, the chemical power needed to remove hair from the root is quite strong—and that makes for a lotion that can be very harsh on the skin and cause a burning sensation. But not all depilatory creams are made the same, and it’s important to learn about any product before putting it on your skin. Dermology Hair Removal Cream is a new, heavily promoted cream on television and online that claims to remove hair completely.
In its advertisements, Dermology says its Hair Removal Cream is “100% pain-free” and “effective.” It also says that the cream can be used on any body part, on both coarse and fine hair. But finding out what makes this miracle cream work is quite difficult. Dermology’s website does not say anything about the Hair Removal Cream’s ingredients. In fact, it seems as though a full ingredient list has not been published for public viewing. A handful of second party reviewers claim that the cream includes aloe vera and honey, but neither of these ingredients are known for being able to remove hair. So, what is the active ingredient in Dermology Hair Removal Cream? Most chemical depilatories (including Nair, Veet, and Magic Shave) are made of calcium thioglycolate, a chemical compound that breaks down the protein in hair. The products that contain calcium thioglycolate are known to cause itching, burning, and rashes. Plus, this chemical is so harsh many dermatologist advise not using it on sensitive or intimate areas.
Depilatories have been around for quite some time, but they’ve never been the most popular form of hair removal. Even shaving, which only lasts about a day before growing back, is considered a better form of hair removal than depilatories. That’s because the current depilatories on the market simply have too many drawbacks:
The biggest difference between laser hair removal and Dermology Hair Removal Cream is permanency. About 6 to 8 sessions of laser hair removal will leave you completely hair free for the rest of your life—that means no stubble, shadow, or ingrown hairs ever again. Dermology Hair Removal Cream will have to be repeated at least every couple of weeks to maintain a hair-free exterior. Plus, Dermology’s product can’t be used everywhere on the body like it claims. Laser hair removal works on the genitals, face, underarms, and all sensitive areas. Laser hair removal is administered by a certified professional who can adjust the laser to your skin and hair type to truly make permanent hair removal a reality.
