We will also reveal how to prevent pesky facial hairs growing back, helping you to achieve a hair-free face for life.
Female Facial Hair Removal Options
If you're looking for ways to remove unwanted facial hair, it's likely you've tried every method under the sun. However, some methods are more effective than others, as well as those that are suitable for different pain thresholds. After all, removing unwanted hair is half about nerve.
Below, discover different methods you can use to remove your unwanted chin, cheek and upper lip hair with ease.
Pros and Cons of Waxing
Removing facial hair with hot wax or sugar wax is by far the most efficient way to eliminate hairs from the root to slow and prevent regrowth. However, waxing is one of the more painful methods of hair removal. With that said, it's also one of the quickest methods of hair removal often taking just minutes, as well as being able to effectively cover a large area making it ideal for waxing your cheeks.
While you can wax in the comfort of your own home, we always recommend visiting a professional beauty therapist as waxing comes with a few risks. If you don't wax correctly, you can risk tearing, burning and even potentially scarring the skin, and those marks won’t go away.
Also, you should keep in mind that waxing your face can lead to blemishes such as spots due to irritation. If you're unsure about whether waxing is for you, try it in a small area to see how your skin reacts.
Pros and Cons of Threading & Tweezing
If your unwanted facial hairs are few and far between, threading and tweezing might be the best, safest options for removal. Both methods offer precision; however, they also take longer than waxing.
The pain, although having the sensation of a mild sting, is spread over a longer period. While threading is widely considered the safest way to remove unwanted facial hair, it can be a daunting option, too. Most threading chairs are in the middle of beauty salons or even department stores, which means your unwanted facial hair is out there for the world to see.
There are mobile beauty therapists available that can come to your home to thread which may be a better option if you're self-conscious. Also, remember, threading causes redness which will take a couple of hours to disappear fully, so it's best not to have your facial hairs threaded on your lunch break.
Always have the beauty therapist apply a soothing gel after threading.
While tweezing your facial hairs is safe, it does come with the risk of damaging and irritating your skin and hair follicles. Also, tweezing is usually only effective if you have a couple of long hairs that bother you. It is virtually impossible to tweeze large areas. Think of tweezing as a worst-case scenario.
Cream to Stop Facial Hair Growth
If you're looking for a permanent solution to your facial hair woes, you're in luck.
FRÉNÉSIES Facial is a specially formulated hair growth prevention cream for your face that works in conjunction with traditional methods of hair removal. Once you have removed areas of unwanted hair from the root, ideally by waxing or threading, you can apply FRÉNÉSIES Facial immediately, which will block hair follicles and, therefore, reduce regrowth.
The treatment is completed over five days, after which you'll see up to an 80% reduction in hair regrowth. For permanent results, you can repeat the treatment two to four times or, in rare cases, up to six times depending on your hair characteristics.
While there are other methods of hair regrowth prevention available, such as electrolysis and laser treatment, both can be very expensive, setting you back up to £1,000, and often ineffective for those with thicker or fairer hair.
Also, laser treatment only lasts up to a couple of years while FRÉNÉSIES Facial provides a permanent, affordable solution, so you never need to worry about facial hair again.
If you're looking to stop facial hair growth, choose a suitable, safe hair removal method to remove hairs from the root and then apply FRÉNÉSIES Facial immediately for excellent, lasting results.
