Facial hair, for women, can be a very sensitive topic for a number of reasons. Many of us deal with facial hair removal in some form or another; whether it be eyebrows, upper lip, or chin, it’s a pain to deal with. Nufree® offers a method of hair removal that is different from traditional waxing methods, more sanitary than shaving or tweezing, and produces results at a significantly lower cost than laser hair removal.
Nufree® was developed by Equibal Labs, in conjunction with plastic surgeons, to create a product that is gentle enough to use on an area before a surgical incision. Nufree® is a non-wax botanical product that doesn’t rip the skin or break the hairs like traditional waxes do. Nufree® is not a wax, and doesn’t harden when it hits the skin. It actually adheres to sebaceous oils, making it a perfect product to use on the face. Its gentle hair removal process affords a more comfortable process for the user and leaves the hair follicles intact without ripping the skin. Waxing can tear the particularly delicate skin of the face and damage the hair follicles, which can lead to ingrown hairs and infections. Tweezing often has the same effects, tearing and breaking the hairs, leading to the same issues.
Laser hair removal, though effective for permanent hair removal, is only recommended for dark hair. While some women do have dark hair on the face, not all do. This option would be unavailable to those with lighter facial hair. Additionally, laser hair removal must be done in multiple sessions. Over time, the hair growth is slowed, but it does require maintenance treatments. For some, this can take a long time to achieve the desired results. Though it is permanent, it is costly and takes time. Nufree® can be used in conjunction with laser treatments, because it is so gentle to the skin, to reduce the hair growth while waiting for the effects of the laser to take place.
Another option that some use is shaving. This seems like a simple enough method, men do it. Right? Well, no. Shaving requires frequent maintenance (think of how often a man shaves). While it does not actually thicken the hair upon regrowth (that’s a myth), it can appear to grow back coarser because of how it is cut at the base of the follicle. With shaving, you also must be careful not to get razor burn or clog the hair follicles, which can lead to a breakout.
Epilades and chemical hair removers are also an option, though not as popular. Epilades pull the hair out of the skin, which can be both painful and can damage the hair follicle. Chemical hair removers often have an unpleasant odor and shouldn’t be used on sensitive skin.
Although there are many options available to women looking to remove facial hair, Nufree® is, by far, one of the most easy and effective methods. Its gentle removal of the hair, along with its antimicrobial properties, lend itself to an ideal method of hair removal for the delicate skin of the face. Nufree® is simply the way to go for safe, effective, affordable hair removal.
