Facial hair: You must decide whether you want to try to get rid of facial hair forever, or temporarily. Men have facial hair which they remove by shaving daily. Women can shave too, or use a hair removal cream, or wax, or epilady, or vaniqa, but the hairs will keep growing and the hair removal must continue all the time. Only laser hair removal offers some chance of permanently stopping hair from growing.

What is best method to get rid of female facial hair?

What is best method to get rid of female facial hair?

Probably laser, but: Hirsutism refers to an excess of facial hair in females. I am an internist, not a dermatologist or plastics. So, I would first make sure there is no underlying endocrine disorder such as polycystic ovary syndrome, hormonal imbalance...However, i'll presume the extra facial hair is simply genetic. Waxing it off is painful and lasts few weeks. Several laser or electrolysis rx's permanent, also $$$.

Is there a way to permanently get rid of your facial hair?

No: There is no such thing as permanent hair removal. However, with laser hair removal, you will probably have a significant reduction in the amount of hairs and thickness. Hair has growth cycles and it has to be removed in a certain cycle for the laser to work effectively. That is why doctors recommend multiple treatments with the laser.

Hello, I wanted to know if there is any way, besides shaving because I know that it grows back thicker if you shave, to get rid of facial hair.?

Hello, I wanted to know if there is any way, besides shaving because I know that it grows back thicker if you shave, to get rid of facial hair.?

Misinformation: Shaving does not cause hair to grow back thicker. It is probably the easiest way of removing facial hair but it is quite temporary. Plucking lasts about six weeks but is tedious. Same with waxing. Eflornithine is expensive and must be applied regularly. Laser and electrolysis may be permanent when done properly but again expensive.
