The best way to slow down the growth of facial hairs is via light-based energy devices such as IPL and hair removal lasers. Such treatments give long-term hair reduction results and significantly slows down facial hair growth. Females tend to respond better than males.

Such techniques have been proven to be safe when the right equipment and the right expertise are used. Potential side effects include blistering and scarring.

Do consult an experienced aesthetic doctor for a thorough discussion to see if you are suitable for treatment.
