One of the more outlandish ideas currently circulating on TikTok is the full-face hot-wax facial treatment. It’s being advocated as a safe and beneficial quick-and-easy way to remove all unwanted hair in one fell swoop. If you hear warning bells ringing, and the thought that maybe that’s not the best way to achieve the smooth, hairless look comes into your mind, then well done – your intuition is right. Here...
Laser hair removal is a popular choice for those who wish to avoid the inconvenience, discomfort, and expense that come with having to schedule shaving or waxing sessions regularly.

It’s unfortunate that the place where most people complain about unwanted hair is also one of the most sensitive parts of the body – our faces.

Unwanted hair is a source of worry and frustration for many of us. Of course, there are many different ways to remove unwanted hair, each of which presents some trade-offs between cost, discomfort, effectiveness, and duration. Depilatory creams and shaving are commonly used but carry the risk of skin irritation or cuts, may even stimulate further hair growth and are, at best, only a relatively short-term solution.  Using laser hair...
