What is the Best Solution for Removing Facial Hair?

Laser Hair Removal for facial hair

There are certainly many options including waxing, threading, laser hair removal and electrolysis. We believe the most cost effective permanent hair removal solution is laser treatments. Waxing and threading are not permanent and represent ongoing maintenance costs. While electrolysis is permanent, it is a very slow process because each hair is treated individually rather than many simultaneously during laser treatments.

You have a lot of options, but it depends

Regardless of the device that it used the key is the difference in the color of your hair vs the color of your skin.

The darker your hair, the thicker the hair shaft and the lighter the color of your skin, the easier the pathway for permanent hair reduction. The converse is true also.

For permanent hair reduction, a series of hair treatments are necessary. Depending on on the above variables and your age and expectations, maintenance treatments may be needed.
