There are many causes of facial hair growth in women. Some women (10%) suffer from a reproductive disease called Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. One symptom for approximately 75% of those with this disease is excess facial hair. Other causes are the regular hormonal changes that take place during menopause, and side effects of certain drugs or medications. One other cause that some people don’t think of very often is hypothyroidism, while on the one hand, it does cause scalp hair to fall out, it also causes excess facial hair.
Most of the society considers facial hair to be a manly trait and thus unattractive on women, thus the reason many women always looking for some best facial hair removal technique. There are numerous methods available with varying levels of ease, effectiveness, and side effects. We are going to discuss here only some safe and affordable facial hair removal treatments.
Tweezing sometimes called “plucking”, it is done with tweezers. Although this is the all-time safest method to use, it definitely is not a painless method. This is the more traditional facial hair removal method. Most common side effects of this method are pain, ingrown hairs, redness, irritation, scarring. And the result can last a maximum of up to 2 weeks depending on the regrowth of the hair.
Bleaching is the simplest and quickest facial hair removal technique. Also, it has the least side effects and considered painless. There are bleaching kits available that are inexpensive. While it is certainly among the safest, if the skin is irritated due to any chemical, then it should be avoided.
Depilatory Lotions and Creams
These creams contain chemicals that dissolve the hair follicles. This method if used correctly is usually painless. However, much like getting a perm, there is a horrible smell afterwards. While the smell (the result of sulfur, a byproduct of the chemical reaction used to dissolve the hair follicle) does not last as long as it does with a perm, most common side effects could be both allergic and chemical dermatitis. You must perform a spot test before removing your hair with this method. Results are not last long, and you will see hair growth just after two weeks.
Laser Hair Removal
This method is best used by fair-skinned women with dark hair because the laser beam is attracted by the dark pigment (melanin) in the hair and then destroys it. Grey hair and white hair could not be targeted effectively in this treatment. In addition, a person whose skin tone is darker will “befuddle” the laser and the targeted hair couldn’t be removed, and it might hurt your skin. There is no major side effect due to this hair removal method. According to the laser hair removal Fredericton tech, during treatment, you will feel very less pain as compared to all other unwanted hair removal treatments. You can achieve long-lasting results with laser hair removal technique, but you need almost 4 to 6 sessions to achieve this target. This method is also considered a permanent hair removal method.
This method is the least tested, and the practice has the least standards. It also requires the most patience and the highest pain. A needle is put next to the hair follicle and electricity is shot through the hair, and then it is plucked using tweezers. Common Side effects are swelling, redness, pain, scars, pigment changes, keloid formation. This method is considered semi-permanent and also give long-lasting results. But it is not cost-effective.
These are the main techniques to remove facial, removing facial hair can be painful and expensive, and so a woman needs to take care of finding an appropriate method for herself. When choosing laser or electrolysis, she needs to take care to look for a professional who follows a high standard and who is well known for good results on other clients.
