Best Hair Removal Methods
the options for do-it-yourself hair removal
What's the best hair removal method for those menopausal whiskers that have started to randomly sprout with wild abandon all over your face?
Though most don't recommend shaving, there are plenty of hair removal methods from the cheap and easy temporary solutions to the more permanent laser hair removal treatments.
So what's up with the sprouting of those gargantuan whiskers?
Well. . .
As women age, their hormonal balances change due to a gradual decrease in estrogen.
As the estrogen levels diminish, they are less able to counterbalance the effects of male hormones.
You guessed it!
Those pesky Whiskers that seem to grow in a blink of an eye. . .
Now I ask you, why is it that after you have very carefully scanned your entire face from absolutely every single possible angle using a light-up 10X magnifying mirror to assure yourself that you aren't sprouting any unsightly facial hair, that you immediately spot this obnoxiously long, wiry whisker just minutes later sticking straight out from the middle of your chin the moment you look in the rear view mirror of your car?
Note to self:
Never, ever go anywhere without bringing tweezers. . .
fortunately we have options!
Lots and lots of options. . .
From the temporary hair removal methods to the more permanent laser hair removal treatments, you can keep the changes in facial hair from that barely visible soft, downy peach fuzz to coarser, darker upper lip and chin hair during menopause (and beyond) in control.

Another option is the me Smooth device which combines radio frequency along with IPL for the best hair removal results.
Usually performed by a trained technician, a tiny needle sends an electric current to destroy the hair follicle.
Although there are devices available for home use, none have been FDA cleared as yet.
