Epilation is a very popular form of removing unwanted white hair. A lot of people don’t think it is a great choice as the hair might grow back faster. But, it turns out to be a good option for some as hair growth slows down with aging, so you would not need to do epilating often, may be once in four to five days.
Today, facial epilation tools are easily available for women. The benefit of using this method for white hair removal is that it is totally painless. Start by softening your facial skin with lukewarm water and then apply a very thin coat of moisturizing cream to the area where you want to remove white hair. Then, use a depilatory tool and remove off your white facial hair. Rinse off your face and pat dry.
If you have just a few white hairs on your face then tweezers would definitely work as a great option to you. Invest in a fine steel tweezer to remove unwanted white hair from your skin. Place the tweezer directly over each individual white hair and pluck it out by starting one at a time. This method of removing white hair is really effective as you will be pulling out your white hair from the roots. So, it usually takes a longer time for growing back.
The time varies with individual, but it usually takes about four to eight weeks for the hair to reappear again. It is highly recommended to use well sanitized tweezers to prevent transfer of any bacteria to the skin which might result in breakouts or any skin infections. You can simply sanitize it by rubbing the tweezer with some isopropyl alcohol or sterilize it in hot water.
If you face problems with a lot of white hair growth, it is best to choose a permanent removal of white facial hair. You can visit your dermatologist or any trained cosmetologist for an electrolysis treatment, which would permanently remove unwanted white facial hair. A pointed thin needle is directly inserted into individual hair shafts and current passes to the shoot through this needle, which thereby kills the hair root.
This process of white hair removal is permanent, but if you notice some hair growing back again you might require an additional treatment. As this white hair removal treatment is permanent, it tends to be expensive and time consuming. If you have a very sensitive skin, you might notice some side effects, such as changes in your skin color and rarely scar results.
