In general hair removal creams are not harmful over time.
Making cause less hair growth to grow back You have to look at the ingredients to make sure that they are safe. FDA approval is a good benchmark of safety

In brief: Beard hair

Read the labels carefully on the hair removal creams.
The creams are designed not to permanently affect the root unlike the laser systems. No No hair removal uses heat to weaken the follicle and generally leaves the roots unaffected.
