If you happen to have dark hair on your face, whether it is above your upper lip, your brows, chin or any other facial feature that you would rather thin out, Min’s Permanent Makeup offers a wealth of solutions to help ensure you feel your very best. But if it’s your first time dealing with hair removal in a salon setting or you’re just unsure of what type of facial hair removal procedure will be right for you, we’ve created this short guide to help you make the best choice when it comes to scheduling your appointment.
Generally, there are two different types of hair removal: temporary, such as waxing and shaving, and permanent, such as laser hair removal. We’ll explore the pros and cons of each to help you make your decision for your next appointment and to ensure that you are satisfied with the results.
Temporary Hair Removal: Waxing
There’s a reason that celebrities always have smooth, shiny, and hairless faces–it is due to facial waxing, which can leave you hair-free and looking amazing for weeks afterward. While shaving and plucking your facial hair is quite easy to do at home, it won’t leave you with the same smooth finish that waxing will.
The waxing process is simple. First, your technician will apply a warm wax to the area you want to remove hair, typically above the lip or on the brows. Then, she will place a cloth over the area and ensure that it has stuck down firmly to the wax and dried. Then comes the painful part: the technician will pull off the cloth, leaving you with a smooth, hairless surface.
Obviously, waxing is not permanent and can be quite painful, so it’s not ideal for those with low pain tolerances or those who are looking for a longer-term solution to their unwanted hair.
Permanent Hair Removal: Laser Hair Removal
For those looking for a more permanent solution to their hair removal woes, laser hair removal is a state-of-the-art process that can leave you with smooth, hairless skin for years to come. If you’re tired of shaving or waxing each and every week to maintain your smooth skin, laser hair removal is a great way to save yourself a boatload of a time.
Laser hair removal involves using a very special tool to burn off the hair follicle from its very root, so that not only will you not have to deal with shaving for quite some time, but you may also find that the results will last far longer than you expect. Rest assured: laser hair removal is not dangerous, especially when you are in the hands of a trusted spa technician. However, you will find that this process will be more expensive than a traditional wax, as it does provide long-term results.
