How would you compare it to waxing? (If you've tried it). I have hair on the sides of my face (kinda like sideburns) and it's not that noticeable but I'd like to get rid of it nonetheless.
It does hurt a little bit, but not much as your in control of it. In comparison to waxing, i would say epilating is better, i have hair on side of my face too, i wan to epilate it, it's very effective

That sounds ubelievably painful. All I can imagine by that is sewing
The tool they used to grab the hairs is basically a tiny, weeny lasso.
Sound cooler now?

Waxing and epilation will make your hairs thinner, as long as you don't shave in between sessions. I wouldn't epilate your face as it'll really hurt.

My Asian friend gets her upper lip hair threaded, try that.
I just did epilate my chin, wasn't that bad!

Not sure how it works with chin hair, but waxing/sugaring makes the hair grow back finer and softer.

I have sugaring (like waxing but more expensive and a little bit less painful) done on my bikini area, only had it done once so far but the hair is growing back much softer and finer. Just waiting for it to be long enough to sugar again.

It did hurt, but not as bad as I was expecting.

Probably your diet is causing you to over produce testosterone.

Google sugaring and you can get more info on it and how it is done, as I am not good at explaining. It is basically a sugar paste made of natural things and although it is made a little warm, so it is more flexible, it does not need to be as warm/hot as wax. May be wrong, but think it is put on and pulled off in direction of hair growth, unlike waxing usually.

Wax sticks to the skin as well as the hair (and a bit can be left sometimes after). Sugar paste only sticks to the hair really, so it is a bit less painful and also better for sensitive skin and none remains on the skin after. Whilst it does hurt (especially the first two bits they do, not going to lie lol), it was not as bad as I expected and I am a wimp.

Waxing is quite a lot cheaper though normally.

If bleach didn't work (not sure why it didn't ) then maybe have it waxed?

DON'T shave, and I think epilating there would be pretty weird. Have you ever used an epilator? It was painful for starters, and I had to give it a couple of goes before all the hairs on my leg were removed.

The hair grows back finer than if you shaved there, but it will still be thicker, and you will need to wait for it to grow again before you could epilate again. Basically, I wouldn't recommend it. Fairly sure you're not meant to use an epilator on your face.

Go to a beautician and see what they suggest?

I get my facial hair lasered. It really helps but isn't really effective on fine hair. It's also a little costly. But I'd sacrifice the money if it means the hair is gone for good.
