The Perception of Smooth Hairless Skin in Popular Culture


In my journey through the aesthetics industry, I’ve seen hair removal evolve from simple methods to advanced technologies. I’m Serene Chiam, and I’ve spent over a decade helping people feel confident in their skin. Today, I want to share the latest trends in hair removal that are changing the game.

I remember when I first started in the aesthetics industry over a decade ago, hair removal options were limited. Waxing and shaving were the go-to methods. But now, the advancements I’ve seen are incredible. Just the other day, a long-time customer came in raving about her experience with our SHR laser hair removal. She said she barely felt a thing and the results lasted way longer than waxing. It’s amazing to see how far we’ve come

First, we’re seeing a shift towards gentler, more natural methods. People want effective results without harsh chemicals. Next, technology plays a big part. Devices that used to be clinic-only are now available for home use. They’re safe and easy to handle. Then, there’s a focus on long-term solutions. Treatments that offer longer periods without hair are becoming popular. Also, customization is key. Everyone’s skin is unique, and personalized treatments are on the rise. Lastly, sustainability matters. Eco-friendly options are more in demand than ever.

In the article below, I’ll dive deeper into these trends. I’ll explain why they’re worth trying and how they can fit into your routine.

As an aesthetic director with over a decade of experience, I’ve seen hair removal trends come and go. But in 2024, we’re witnessing some exciting developments that are changing the game.

One trend I’m thrilled about is the rise of personalized treatments. At Wellaholic, we now tailor our laser hair removal to each client’s unique skin and hair type. This means better results and happier customers. Another big shift is the growing popularity of combination therapies. We often pair laser treatments with other methods like IPL for even smoother, longer-lasting results. It’s amazing to see how these combined approaches can tackle even the most stubborn hair growth.

As an aesthetic chain specialising in hair removal treatments, it's essential for Wellaholic to keep up with the technology patterns in laser hair elimination trends
Hair removal has long been associated with a female concern, but times are changing. Male grooming, often referred to as "manscaping" or "boyzilian," has emerged as a leading trend in recent years. At Wellaholic, we have witnessed a significant increase in customer interest in male hair removal at our outlets.

Trend #1 – Male Hair Removal or “Boyzilian”

Hair removal has long been associated with a female concern, but times are changing. Male grooming, often referred to as “manscaping” or “Boyzilian,” has emerged as a leading trend in recent years.

This shift can be attributed to evolving lifestyles and advancements in men’s grooming products. The hair removal industry has successfully expanded its reach beyond traditional boundaries, appealing to men with refined fashion tastes.

The surge in personal grooming among men is experiencing an unprecedented surge, particularly in countries like the United States, the United Kingdom, China, India, and Brazil.

At Wellaholic, we have witnessed a significant increase in customer interest in male hair removal at our outlets. In fact, according to a recent survey by Wellaholic, 35% of our male customers now regularly book hair removal treatments, compared to just 10% five years ago. It’s clear that the stigma around male grooming is disappearing. More and more men are realizing that taking care of their appearance is a form of self-care and confidence-building.

While hair removal elimination is usually a female problem, male grooming, in some cases described as "manscaping" or "boyzilian", has actually made its position at the leading trend
Developed by Alma Lasers, SHR is a diode laser hair removal technology which allows the skin to be heated gently, but with the rapid pulses

Trend #2 – Innovations in Laser Hair Removal

Light-Based Gadgets: Revolutionizing Hair Removal

Step into the future of hair elimination with ingenious and innovative light-based gadgets. Laser hair removal has become the go-to method for men and women worldwide, offering unparalleled convenience, effectiveness, and swift results.

Within the realm of laser technology, a rising trend known as white laser technology has gained significant popularity, particularly in the United States and Canada.

This technology removes hair and also claims to whiten the skin, reduce scars, and stimulate collagen production on different skin types.

Unveiling SHR Technology: The Power of Low Energy and Rapid Pulsing

Discover the game-changing technology of Super Hair Removal (SHR), a revolutionary approach to laser hair removal.

Developed by Alma Lasers, SHR utilizes low-energy diode lasers that emit rapid pulses at a higher frequency. Unlike traditional methods, this cutting-edge technology gently heats the skin, allowing the energy to accumulate and work its magic.

Targeting Fine and Coarse Hairs: The Strength of SHR

Harnessing the power of SHR goes beyond traditional hair removal methods. While 50% of the energy targets the melanin (similar to IPL), the remaining 50% focuses on the stem cells responsible for hair production. This unique feature is very important because it allows SHR to effectively remove both fine and coarse hairs with better results and less discomfort.

Preparing for Optimal Results: Recommended SHR Treatment Preparation

To maximize the effectiveness of SHR treatment, proper preparation is essential. SHR works most effectively during the active growth phase, known as the anagen stage of hair growth, as explained by Philip Kingsley. It is recommended to shave a day before or just prior to the hair removal treatment. This will activate the hair follicles and help the SHR technology to target the cells that produce hair.

Embrace the Future: Experience the Power of SHR

Embrace the future of hair removal with SHR technology. Say goodbye to outdated methods and embrace the convenience, effectiveness, and comfort that SHR offers. Explore the benefits of this cutting-edge technology and unlock the potential for long-lasting hair reduction. Prepare for a hair removal experience like never before as you witness the transformative power of SHR.

Trend #5 – Herbal Hair Removal Products

Embracing Nature: The Rise of Organic Hair Removal Products

Concerns over the negative effects of chemical-based hair removal products have sparked a growing demand for organic alternatives.

This trend is clear in countries like the United States, Canada, and Brazil, where consumers are prioritizing natural and eco-friendly options. In addition, the Indian market has experienced a significant surge in demand for organic hair removal products, driven by the popularity of Ayurveda and a growing interest in religious compliance.

This heightened demand in India has also prompted key personal care manufacturers to expand their range of organic offerings.

A Natural Approach: The Appeal of Organic Hair Removal

More and more individuals are seeking a natural approach to hair removal, free from harmful chemicals and synthetic ingredients. Organic hair removal products provide a gentle and eco-conscious solution, harnessing the power of nature to effectively remove unwanted hair.

These products use plant ingredients to create a safer and more sustainable option, promoting healthier skin and environmental well-being.

The Indian Influence: Ayurveda and the Rise of Organic Products

India’s rich heritage of Ayurveda has played a significant role in driving the demand for organic hair removal products. Ayurveda emphasizes the use of natural ingredients and traditional remedies for holistic well-being.

As a result, Indian consumers are increasingly drawn to organic options that align with their cultural and religious practices. The increase in demand has made big personal care companies offer more organic products to meet the growing interest in natural solutions.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

What are the benefits of laser hair removal over traditional methods like waxing?

A: Laser hair removal offers long-lasting results compared to waxing, which provides temporary hair removal. Laser targets hair at the root, leading to reduced hair growth over time, while waxing only removes hair from the surface.

Is laser hair removal a permanent solution?

A: While laser hair removal significantly reduces hair growth, it’s considered a long-term reduction rather than complete permanent removal. Multiple sessions are required for optimal results.

How does laser hair removal differ from hair waxing?

A: Laser hair removal uses focused light energy to target hair follicles, reducing hair growth over time. Hair waxing, on the other hand, involves removing hair from the root using heated wax.

Can laser hair removal effectively treat ingrown hairs?

Yes, laser hair removal can help with ingrown hair issues. By reducing hair growth, it can minimize the occurrence of ingrown hairs and improve their appearance.

What is the typical process for a facial laser hair removal session?

A: A facial laser hair removal session involves cleaning the treatment area, applying a cooling gel, and using a laser device to target and disable hair follicles. The process is relatively quick and virtually painless.

Is waxing a suitable option for facial hair removal?

A: Waxing is commonly used for facial hair removal, especially for areas like the upper lip and eyebrows. It provides smooth results, but it’s not a permanent solution like laser hair removal.
