This method of hair removal is usually used in shaping and removing eyebrows and facial hairs. The hairs are plucked with the help of twisted threads.

-Ingrown Hair Treatments

Ingrown hairs are usually formed by waxing, plucking, threading and epilation. This type of hair starts growing inside the skin when the hairs are broken off beneath the skin. These cause small red swellings on the skin and causes skin irritation and rashes. A hydroxybenzoic acid or salicylic acid solution is used to act as an exfoliant and treat ingrown follicles, while a small sterilized needle is used to takeout the hairs.

This drug inhibits or halts the growth of new hair cells, slowly reducing its growth and finally stops it. Another known enzyme drug is the Vaniga; the active ingredient is Eflornithine hydrochloride, which also inhibits an enzyme called Ornithine decarboxylase, which also stops the new hair cells from growing.
