No matter what your gender is, cheekbone hair can be frustrating to deal with. You do have several options for removing it, however, including shaving, plucking, and electrolysis. Depending on your skin tone and the color of your cheekbone hair, you may also be a good candidate for laser hair treatments, which are very effective at long-term hair removal. Your cheekbone removal method should ideally be affordable and effective and cause minimal discomfort.

For many people, the most obvious method of dealing with cheekbone hair is to shave it off using a standard or electric razor. Shaving is typically cheap, fast, and painless, although it may cause some people to develop facial redness and irritation. Unfortunately, shaving is a very temporary remedy for unwanted hair, as the hair grows back quickly.

Depilatory creams and lotions work by dissolving hair on the surface of your skin, often resulting in less stubble. Like shaving, however, the effect of these products is quite temporary, and you may find that you must use the depilatory product often to maintain hairless cheekbones. The chemicals in these creams can also cause significant skin irritation in many people, so you may find that you are simply unable to use them.

If you are looking for a way to remove cheekbone hair that gives you long-lasting results, some form of plucking might be your best option. If you have only a few hairs in the cheekbone area, you may wish to simply pluck the hairs yourself using tweezers. If you have more hair growth than can be removed by tweezing alone, you may wish to look into threading or waxing. Both of these methods can remove cheekbone hair quickly, and you may only need to repeat the process once every few weeks. Waxing can sometimes offer longer-lasting results than threading, but can be more irritating to the skin.

Facial hair can also be removed using electrolysis or laser treatments. Another option is to undergo laser hair removal treatments treatments, although this option works best for people who have fair skin and dark cheekbone hair. In both cases, you should use the services of a specialist for best results. As such, these options cost more than other hair-removal techniques, but they are also more likely to give you permanent results, reducing your costs over time.

What exactly is threading in terms of hair removal? I've heard about it in regards to eyebrows, but not cheekbone hair. Can threading be used to remove unwanted hair anywhere on the body, or only the eyebrows and cheekbones?
