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?

A. i 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 .
