Laser hair removal: Laser hair removal is the most effective method to remove facial or body hair. Electrolysis can be used for smaller regions but is less reliable and technique dependent than lasers. Lasers are very safe if performed by a skilled and experienced physician or provider. Vaniqa cream also helps reduce hair growth by 40% but effects wear off after discontinuing use. Laser effects are long-lasting.

Facial hair removal: Several options are available. The most effective include ipl treatment and laser treatment. However, the hair has to have enough pigment to absorb the energy wavelengths used. For light colored or grey hair i would suggest electrolysis.
