What to do about coarse facial hair? Lazer treatments are expensive and would require many, many visits. Do you have any information regarding the No No hair remover?
Thank you as this is a very important question for me.

    honest to goodness this has been a life long problem for me and I have done it ALL. The NoNo has not made a difference on my facial hair but for some odd reason it works only on my forearms. I waxed and bleached for many years but that’s not a good solution. I did a LOT of laser treatments- a LOT- followed by electrolysis to get rid of the white and gray coarse hairs. A couple of years later it seemed like all of the hair was back and more. I decided to just do electrolysis (which I first did in the 80’s but without a lot of success back then). I went every 2 weeks to 4 weeks for a few years. I still go every now and then when I need to. I still have more dark hair than I’d like but the coarse hair is gone.

    There are several options for dealing with unwanted facial hair. I recommend using a cream called VANIQA which is FDA approved to slow hair growth. This cream is used twice per day and results are seen within 4-8 weeks. Then the No No hair device can be used to manage the hair that does grow.
    Other options include waxing, threading and electrolysis.

    Unfortunately coarse facial hair has no simple, cheap, and effective solution. Plucking and waxing cause bumps and discoloration. Shaving causes stubble. Laser is expensive and takes many visits, and so does electrolysis. There is a prescription cream, not covered by insurance, called Vaniqa, that you have to use twice every single day for as long as you want it to work to shrink the hairs so small they become invisible. But you have to use it many months before seeing enough difference, and it’s not inexpensive. It may be about $100 per month. The No No is cheap, so it probably doesn’t hurt to try it, but it’s not a guarantee. Probably your best bet, if you have several hairs but they are in smallish areas, is to go for electrolysis, which is the most permanent method, even if it’s a little expensive at first.

    First – just to say I’m not at all dermatological professional – just a person who has learned through trial and error and years of dermatologic visits to find the right regimen for me. That said, the first place I go for product reviews is Amazon. Here’s the link to info on the No No Hair remover (http://www.amazon.com/No-Hair-Removal-Unit-Pink/product-reviews/B002LBK5QU.) Doesn’t look like a product many people endorse so I wouldn’t waste your money. There are home products using laser light technology but are really only safe for women with very fair skin (typically not the skin type that generates course facial hair). When frustrated by costs and risks of damage to skin, I also look to ayurvedic methods to see if there are more gentle, homeopathic solutions. I can’t attest to whether or not this would work, but check out this video – something easy to try at home and if it works great! If not, no harm no foul. Hope this helps!
