Get the competive edge
In athletic competition, even a fraction of a second can make a difference. A streamlined profile can cut down on wind or water friction, provide a comfortable "feel" during athletic activity and make hygiene easier. Experts also say that athletes who participate in a sport which produces chafing could find some relief through hair removal.
As a result, the increased popularity of "manscaping," or the taming, shaping and removal of body hair, is going extreme for athletes in many sports.
Many athletes choose permanent hair removal with electrolysis.
The trend of widespread body hair removal, from back to arm and leg hair to the pubic region—even going totally bare—is most common among swimmers, cyclists and triathletes.
Athletes who turn to hair removal for improved athletic performance may choose to commit to weekly upkeep. But for those who would like the convenience of a permanent solution, electrolysis is the only effective option. Other methods may reduce the amount of hair or frequency of maintenance but only electrolysis is permanent.
Discuss your goals with your professional electrologist to develop a hair removal plan that meets your needs.
