Ok, I hate shaving (always have). I certainly don't want to grow it either as it looks like dirt on my face.

What's the best option for permanent removal? Would it be laser or electrolysis? Have any of you had experience with either of these methods? How expensive would it be (roughly) and could I expect good results?

In the meantime and until I have the money, would waxing be a better alternative to using razors (at least from my skin's perspective)?

Thanks in advance. No nasty or judgmental comments please.

I have never heard of a man getting his face waxed, so I bet the hair is too coarse for waxing to work well. As long as the hair is dark, laser should work well. Electrolysis takes a long time.

Yes, looks like you're correct. Laser is probably the best bet. Just wondered if anyone had gone through it?

Laser is a good option for hair removal. Typically a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) is used prior to the procedure. Because hair grows in different cycles, multiple treatments are required. It is difficult to remove every last hair but dramatic reduction can be achieved. Let me know if you need a recommendation.

do not do it.
do not laser your face.

just shave like the rest of us, we hate it, but do it.


do not do electrolysis on your face ever. it will come out blotchy. you dont want that, especially on your face.

it isnt like eyebrows or a small area, it is your face. do not do it. it will not come out baby smoothe like you think. it will be uneven and not look natural.

No judging, but I think nightcrawler is probably right. I strongly suspect that you wouldn't like the results, and that you'd be better off just continuing to shave. I'd hate to see damage done to your face by these unusual methods.
