A relatively quick and effective method is electrolysis. It burns the hair follicles to a point where they can’t produce hair any more… For most people, however, hair will grow back after a few years. The cons of electrolysis are: cost, pain, rashes, and, in some cases, even scarring. Electrolysis can be a good option to remove unwanted hair permanently from face if you have money and you can go to an excellent practitioner.
Laser: while laser will remove unwanted hair from face for up to one year in about 10 sessions, it is not permanent. The cons are: it is costly, it does not work well for dark complexions (not a good option for South Asian women), it can rarely lead to blisters and scarring.
