Having facial hair is nothing to be ashamed of, but that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be allowed to get rid of it. If you’re looking to remove any unsightly facial hair but are afraid of the pain associated with typical hair removal techniques, we’ve got you covered. We’re teaching you how to remove facial hair with the seven most easy and pain-free techniques.

Hair Removal Cream

Depilatory creams are a miracle worker for anyone looking for a completely painless way to remove facial hair. Simply apply the cream to the area you want to remove your facial hair from, allow it to remain on your face for few minutes (check the product packaging for exact time), wipe the cream from your face. Voila! No more hair.

Depilatory creams work by dissolving the hair so it can easily be wiped from your face. Because they sometimes requires harsh chemicals to dissolve hair, some depilatory creams can irritate skin. Be sure to patch test a small area of skin before applying it to large areas of your face.

Eyebrow Shaping Blade

If you like to shape your eyebrows but don’t want to deal with another 20 minutes of painful tweezing, pick up an eyebrow shaping blade. The blade is designed to expertly maneuver around the delicate tangles of your brows for a flawless finish. The shaping blade is also perfect for trimming sideburns.

Home Laser

If you’re hoping to get rid of your facial hair permanently, consider splurging on an at-home laser hair removal system. Laser removal treatments are meant to be permanent, but, it may take a few sessions to zap all of your unwanted hair.

While doctor or esthetician administered laser treatments can be painful, at home systems are not nearly as strong as professionally operated systems. This lower dose of heat can make most at-home laser systems less painful feeling.

Facial Buffer

Just like you buff away any unwanted ridges on your nails, you can do the same to your unwanted facial hair. Facial buffers gently rub fine hair off the delicate parts of your face. While facial buffers offer instant and painless results, they’re not usually long-lasting. Because facial buffers only remove the hair on top of your skin, expect your hair to return quickly. Depending on how fast your facial hair grows, you could see hairs sprouting a matter of hours.

Electric Facial Hair Trimmer

Like the clippers your father used to trim his beard, electric facial hair trimmers painlessly clip facial hair while gently gliding across your face. Unfortunately, the trimmer only removes hair from the surface of the skin. That means your facial hair will probably grow back fairly fast. Luckily, the trimmer is so easy and pain-free, you won’t mind using it every few days.


Dermaplaning is like shaving for your face. The service can be done by a dermatologist or in the comfort of your own home. Dermaplaning tools have one razor-like blade, that is used to remove unwanted hair from the surface of your face gently. Dermaplaning not only removes any unwanted peach fuzz, but also sloughs off dead skin cells. That means you’ll be left with smoother, brighter skin.


Sugaring is a wax-like service in which a paste is created from sugar and water, applied to the skin at room temperature, briefly allowed to harden, and then pulled from the skin to remove the hair. Sugaring is billed as a pain-free alternative to waxing as the sugar paste is not supposed to adhere to the skin, just the hair. However, there is a chance you may feel a little discomfort.
