hair on face is not fine. there is some hormonal problem. find out what is the hormonal problem you have. go to physician and than check the sex hormone status in the blood.

Hi!Feel nice to answer your question. Yes repeated waxing may not be good for your face.Its painful & not a permanent solution. But you can have a try for laser treatment.Laser hair removal is a better option than electrolysis. Few sittings of Laser treatment can give you permanent solution & also is not a very costly procedure. Thank U.

Hi..dear Maria..,
Thanks for choosing HCM.,
Waxing on the face is not advisable...,
Bcoz it produces post inflammatory pigmentation...,
Hence better go for...LASER therapy...,
IPL-LHE...Laser is best for Hair removal...,
No pigmentation.....pain and swelling also very minimal..,
DIODE LASER...also widely used for hair removal...,
ok...good luck..,
