Options for Facial Hair Removal

Although most women will have some light fairs at the side of their face on their upper lip and around their chin, if this hair growth is dark or excessive it can become embarrassing and make the person feel self-conscious.
In some cases this is down to a medical problem known as hirsutism, which is caused by male hormones called androgens, and can also causes thick, dark hair on the chest, lower back and buttocks. However, facial hair could also simply be down to genetics or there may not even be an obvious cause at all.

But the good news is that there are several options for removing or disguising facial hair, which can help women to feel more confident about their appearance.

Shaving is one of the most common hair removal methods as it is quick and easy and will not make the hair grow back quicker or thicker. However, it can be a bit tedious to have to do this every day and it may cause irritation or stubble between shaves.

Waxing, plucking or threading is another method that is quick and simple to do, and it has the added benefit of reducing re-growth if it is done frequently. But some women find this method is rather painful, and it can also cause scarring or folliculitis (inflammation of a hair follicle).
