Everyone is looking for the easiest and fastest method to get rid of unwanted body hair which has led many to take prescription medications that have been proven to inhibit hair growth. Given you can find a doctor willing to prescribe one of these medications and you aren’t taking any supplements or medications that could interact harshly with the new medication, there are three reasons you should not go this route.
#1: Side Effects
This is number one on the list for a reason. Prescription medications used for any purpose tend to cause side effects and many of the side effects are extremely uncomfortable or just downright annoying. So why would you subject yourself to physical discomfort just to do away with your hair?
This is unnecessary. Think of the more permanent methods we have of hair removal today, which don’t come with any side effects!
For instance, Flutamide is a drug sometimes prescribed to inhibit hair growth but it can actually be toxic to some women. That’s why some women have to go through blood monitoring when they first start taking the medication. Spironolactone is a bit safer but also acts as a diuretic which flushes fluid out of the body. You have to be careful or you could end up dehydrated.
Even if you could find a medication with tolerable to no side effects, there are still two other great reasons not to go this route.
#2: Continuous Use Required
Let’s say that you find a medication that does work for you and your doctor is willing to write out the scripts to keep the pills flowing in. Your hair starts to thin out or perhaps goes away, but now what? You have to keep taking those pills or it will just reverse and start growing again.
Medications that inhibit hair growth are not a permanent solution to body hair. At some point you won’t be able to take the pills or will decide to go off of them. You may become pregnant which requires an immediate end to the pills or you could have a desire to have a baby which means going off your birth control and your hair medications.
At this point all the hair comes right back and you are just as hairy as ever. It’s kind of like taking diet pills. Without the pills you get no results.
#3: Untargeted Results
This is probably the biggest reason most people don’t think to use prescription medication as a form of hair removal. There is no way to target it to the area of the body you want hair removed from. Medication gets into your system and affects the entire body, so there is no way to have hair-free legs without interfering with hair growth everywhere else.
This is why most people who use prescription medications have more severe problems or perhaps medical issues that require some inhibition in the hair growth process. Medication can also be used to grow hair, but it isn’t the best way to accomplish body hair removal.
KPL hair removal is a much more effective way to get rid of unwanted hair. Find a provider in your local area and go in for a consultation. They will explain the process and help you decide if it is right for you.
