Some American men and women had to resort to laser equipment at a cost you more for 8 to 12 sessions just to have completely remove and stop it from growing back.

According to alternet.org:

Recent studies indicate that more than 99 percent of American women voluntarily remove hair, and more than 85 percent do so regularly, even daily. The usual targets, for the moment, are legs, underarms, eyebrows, upper lips, and bikini lines. Those habits, furthermore, appear to transcend ethnic, racial, and regional boundaries. Over the course of a lifetime, one 2008 survey indicated, American women who shave (a relatively inexpensive way to remove hair) will spend, on average, more than ten thousand dollars and nearly two entire months of their lives simply managing unwanted hair. The woman who waxes once or twice a month will spend more than twenty-three thousand dollars over the course of her lifetime. Most American men, too, now routinely remove facial hair, and increasing numbers modify hair elsewhere on their bodies.

According to fda.gov:

FDA’s Center for Devices and Radiological Health regulates electrolysis equipment and lasers. Chemical depilatories, waxes, and shaving creams and gels fall under the jurisdiction of FDA’s Office of Cosmetics and Colors in the Center for Food Safety and Applied Nutrition. The practice of professional hair removal is generally regulated by state and local authorities.

There are three different hairs types that can be found on the human body: lanugo, vellus, and terminal. Lanugo is a downy, unpigmented hair found on fetuses and sometimes on malnourished children and adults. Typically, lanugo on newborns is shed within days or weeks and replaced with vellus hair. Vellus is short, fine, thin, light-colored, and barely noticeable. This type of hair is often seen around the lips, the back of the ears, some external genital areas, the navel, and scar tissue. Terminal hair develops out of vellus hair and is hair that develops during puberty in both boys and girls. Terminal hair becomes darker, coarser hair. The density of hair varies from person to person.
