Hair Removal for Light Hair?

I have very fine, light hair growing all over my face. Cheeks, chin, upper lip, etc. I have heard that laser hair removal treatments are not effective for this type of growth. What is the best way to get rid of it? HELP!!

There is no easy way to get rid of this kind of hair. You are better off using depilatory creams like Nair etc. If your hair is light brown, then you would still benefit from laser hair remvoal to reduce the hair. If you have peach fuzz like hair then laser will not make any difference.

Electrolysis will work for you but will be a long painful process.
