Best method for removing facial hair
Removing unwanted body hair is an increasingly prevalent trend in our society. Methods for removing unwanted hair include laser hair removal, bleaching, plucking, shaving, waxing, and chemical depilatories. Other than laser hair removal, none of these methods provide a permanent solution to unwanted hair. Selectively targeting hair follicles with lasers has revolutionized the ability to permanently eliminate unwanted hair. As laser technology advances, we are able to treat individuals of most skin types and hair colors.
Laser Hair Removal is an option, depending on the color of your hair
laser hair removal is a great options, but it also depends on the color of your hair. if they are brown / have some pigment there is a higher chance of success. there is also a prescription cream called Vaniqa which slows hair growth.

Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser Hair Removal is a great options for nearly all skin tones, if your dermatologist uses the right laser at the right setting.
Laser Hair Removal may require multiple sessions, depending on how active your hair growth is and your genetic / ethnic background. Darker skin may require more sessions.
Overall it's definitely easier to eliminate the hair and avoid plucking, waxing, threading and other methods that may lead to scars and more problems.
Only shave the area for 2 weeks before a session so the hair has grown out a little before a treatment. Also, stay out of the sun for 2 weeks before a laser session to avoid complications.
