Most women spend a lifetime keeping the hair on their legs as short as possible. If you're a male cyclist, hair removal is as important for you, since clean legs can cut the risk of infection after falls.
Medical electrolysis devices destroy hair growth with a shortwave radio frequency after a thin probe is placed in the hair follicle. Risks from these methods include infection from an unsterile needle and scarring from improper technique. Electrolysis is considered a permanent hair-removal method, since it destroys the hair follicle. It requires a series of appointments over a period of time.
