Are creams to remove hair safe, and would the results last longer than shaving?

Dear Nicked Too Much,
Hair removal creams are normally safe if used properly, and the directions must be followed carefully. Some popular brands are Nair, Veet, and Surgi-Cream.
With depilatories, chemicals break down the bonds of the hair. When the cream is wiped off, the hairs get taken out as well.
The results should last a few days longer than shaving, plus you will have no nicks, cuts, or razor burn.
