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...,
