generalhospitalfan1984 posted:
I have some facial hair that I would like to remove. I have tried two different Sally Hensen products will no results. Any suggestions on which products will work best for my facial hair problem? Please Help!
Mary Ruth Buchness, MD responded:
Dear generalhospitalfan1984,
If your hair is very coarse, the cream hair removers don't work very well. Waxing or threading might work better. If you want a permanent hair removal method, laser works best for dark hair and electrolysis for blond hair. I recommend that if you get laser removal, do it only in a dermatologist's office. It's your face and you don't want to risk burning or scarring.

Thank you for the tips.
