In brief: 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.

Even then, laser only offers permanent hair reduction...

In brief: Unwanted facial hair
Besides plucking the hair or using laser or electrolysis - vaniqa is the only other option - bleaching agents will simply lighten the hairs making them less visible.
