You will still have to remove the current hairs  you can choose to remove them with some of the alternative methods listed below.
  • Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is one of the most effective methods of eliminating facial hair growth for good.  Women who are not suffering from hormonal imbalances could see a reduction of about 80% after a series of 5 to 8 treatments.


  • Electrolysis

Through Electrolysis, a technician uses a fine needle-shaped instrument to zap each hair with an electric current, ultimately destroying the hair follicle.  It is the only other procedure besides laser that can lead to permanent hair removal.

  • Threading

Threading is a good temporary fix depending on your hair type.  I would suggest this as a quick and fast way to remove the hair from chin or side burns.   But it is not a long term fix.

  • Waxing

Waxing is uncertain meaning unpredictable.  It’s a fairly simple method that could be done at home with ok results depending on your skin type.  But be aware for some women it could result in acne, brown spots, and  in-grown hairs.
