Q. Is there any treatment in Chinese medicine to remove body hair?

I’m a 22 years-old girl, and I’m considering laser hair removal of the hair on my legs. Usually I prefer the natural way, so I wanted to ask if there’s any Chinese way to remove body hair. Is it better than laser?
A1i agree with Melissa- body hair is natural but sometimes it's growth is increased by an unbalanced hormonal state. and Chinese medicine can help on that case. so there is nothing wrong by checking this direction out .
A2There’s no treatment to remove normal body hair (and no, in contrast to what the cosmetic industry tries to brainwash you, the hair on the legs isn’t a shame), but if there’s abnormal growth of hair (e.g. on the forehead) where it shouldn’t grow due to an imbalance in the body, then there are treatments to restore the balance and treat the hair growth.
A3No. There’s no treatment in Chinese medicine to remove body hair in the way you describe. Sorry…
