Men seemingly have it easy when it comes to facial hair removal—a few swipes with a razor are oftentimes enough to result in a reliable disappearing act. And while women can just as candidly reach for a razor, shaving your face can create unwanted stubble and irritation. But a little bit of magic from a professional hair removal treatment can easily give you a smooth and prickle-free effect. Yes, depilatory creams and at-home waxing kits exist, but it’s best to leave it up to the pros to avoid any mishaps, especially when dealing with the delicate nature of the face.

Tried and true, facial waxing is one of the most popular practices for women’s facial hair removal. Not only is it an effective way of eliminating hair, but it’s also widely available and the procedure itself is lightning-fast. Your waxing technician will apply wax in the direction of the hair growth, and once hardened, they’ll remove it by pulling it in the opposite direction. Because the hairs are removed by their roots, you’ll experience a silky finish for up to eight weeks with a waxing hair removal service!
If you’re looking for a gentler alternative to waxing, then sugaring may be right up your alley. Sugaring involves creating a paste that’s typically made from sugar, water, and lemon juice which is applied across the skin against the hair’s grain, then pulled off to remove unwanted hair in the direction of hair growth. What makes sugaring less harsh than waxing, is that the sugar paste doesn’t adhere to the skin the way wax does, providing an easier and less painful process.
The perfect way to remove not only peach fuzz but also dead skin, in one go, is by booking a dermaplaning treatment. During a dermaplaning facial your specialist will use a dermaplaning tool, which is a sharp blade that is similar to a scalpel, and gently use it to scrape off the outer layer of skin—but don’t worry, this treatment is entirely painless! Dermaplaning is often compared to shaving, but because it focuses on removing ultra-fine facial hairs, hair regrowth after treatment remains unaffected and stubble-free.

Threading has gained a lot of popularity within the beauty community during the last decade, largely due to eyebrow threading services’ rise to fame. But the brows aren’t the only area of the face that threading is good for. In fact, this treatment can also be used on zones like the cheeks, upper lip, and chin. Using only one tool, a cotton thread that has been twisted into a specific form, your technician will glide the thread over your skin to trap unwanted hairs and remove them from their follicles.
Laser hair removal
Looking for truly long-lasting results? A laser hair removal service for the face can keep your face hair-free for several months even up to a few years. Facial laser hair removal is a safe and FDA-approved method of hair removal that requires around two to eight treatment sessions to generate effects. The laser involved in the procedure emits a powerful beam of light, which is directed at the desired areas of the face to damage the hair follicles and prevent future hair growth.
When it comes down to it, the only true permanent facial hair removal method is electrolysis. Other hair removal techniques may last weeks or even months, but nothing compares to the lifelong effects of electrolysis treatment. Electrolysis permanently destroys the hair’s roots by administering an electrical current beneath the surface of the skin via a thin metal probe. Like laser hair removal, electrolysis does require several treatment sessions to produce effects—but the tradeoff of eight to twelve sessions for a lifetime of no facial hair seems solid!
