I would just wax it all off if its heavy. That peach fuzz is really easy to rip out. I wouldn't shave it though just in case the hair being fine creates ingrown hairs or comes back with a stubble look.

One thing that can make fuzz look heavier with age is your skin being dry. The skin retracts back from the normal level and shows more of the hair shaft. Try some different facial lotions to see if that helps before you wax. My mother usually uses olay (i can't) but it doesn't work as well unless she puts a thin layer of olive oil under it. She tried that when I had her doing olive oil eye makeup removal experiments and discovered it hydrated her cheeks better. Less crepey in the hollows and the fuzz got buried a bit. I guess hers was also worse when she was going through meno which she thinks was also messing with her thyroid (has a history of that). She said she trimmed it with an eyebrow trimmer. I never noticed it looking strange so maybe eyebrow trimmers could be an option for removal too.

I wax my eyebrows every couple of months. I don't have that many, but they can look a little messy when they grow all the way in. I also wax or thread my upper lip every month or so. I don't have a ton of hair there, but it gets to be a little noticeable at some point when it grows in.

Then I have a few strays. I have one recurring hair on my cheek. And some on my chin. The chin ones are really annoying. Curly and course, so much harder to pluck. I just tweeze them when I find it. If I don't it bothers me to no end. Some are even grey!
