A nurse told me once that waxing is the way to go to remove any bodily hair. It's way safer than those "melt away" creams that essentially just burn you and razors just cause the hair to grow back faster and thicker. So if you can, splurge for the waxing. Plus, you'll have to worry about hair removal less often. The longer you've been waxing, the less hair that grows back. No stubble either

You'd have stubble when it grows back ... but depending on how fast your hair grows, that could be 3-6 wks, compared to a few days w/ shaving.

Shaving does NOT, CANNOT, cause your hair to grow back either faster or thicker. These traits are rooted (no pun intended) in the hair follicles themselves, which shaving does NOT affect.
What DOES happen is that the ends of shaved hair are more blunt than of unshaven hair. Therefore, they can look thicker or different and feel much rougher than unshaven hair.
