I am a woman and would like to know how can I minimize face hair?

Minimize Facial Hair

Several options now exist to decrease the appearance of facial hair. There are invisible beaching creams such as Invisi-Bleach and hair removal creams such as Nair. Depilatory creams dissolve the hair at the base of the follicle. They are ideal for widespread areas (like the legs), but can be problematic when used on the face because they irritate the skin and usually don't remove all of the hairs. On the plus side, depilatory creams are a relatively inexpensive option. On average, results will last for one to two weeks. Waxing really does make your hair grow in lighter over time because the wax gets into the hair follicle and pulls the hair from the root so it grows back less thick than when the shaft is shaved. Laser procedures can be used more as a "laser waxing," or temporary hair removal.
