Don’t Be the Circus Star: The Art of Understanding Women’s Facial Hair

Laser Hair Removal Glenn Dale, MDIf you think of a woman with a beard as the class act at the circus when you think of a woman with facial hair, you’re certainly not alone. However, most, if not all, women have some amount of unwanted facial hair that’s a lot less prominent than the circus lady with the beard. So, how is female facial hair caused and how can you get rid of it? Read on to learn more.

What Is Female Facial Hair?

Just about any female can have unwanted facial hair, but if you have a hormone imbalance or something wrong with one of your thyroids, you may suffer from a lot more facial hair than most women. A lot of women develop facial hair around the beard line, and it can come in thick if there is an underlying medical issue. Most women, however, just have a thin layer of peach fuzz like hair around their upper lip or cheeks.

How Can It Be Treated?

The great thing about female facial hair is that it can be treated. Treatments include hormone imbalance or thyroid medication, waxing, tweezing, or even laser hair removal.

  • Waxing: Facial waxing for women is very common in the waxing industry. By pulling out each hair on the face, facial waxing should last around a month on average.
  • Tweezing: Depending on how much facial hair you have, you may be able just to tweeze it. If you only have a handful of hairs on your face, try tweezing them to get rid of them.
  • Laser Hair Removal: If you are sick of waxing and can’t keep up with female facial hair. By targeting every hair follicle., laser hair removal can give you permanent results after just a few sessions.

Most women need to get their upper lip waxed on occasion. Unfortunately, there are some women who have more facial hair that is typically the cause of an underlying condition.
