Female facial hair can have a big impact on mental health, but we are here to help you.

Are you fed up with looking in the mirror before going out and worrying in case you spot a hair? Have you been plucking, trimming, or even shaving the face to stay on top of hair growth?

I’m not sure if anyone has told you this, but women shouldn’t be shaving or trimming hair on their face. It isn’t necessary and can even promote more hair to grow, and in the places, you least want it to such as the top lip or chin area. 

So we’re here to say put down the razor and leave it to the guys. They have a different skin texture and type; the epidermis is thicker and hair tends to be courser so they can withstand the abrasive nature of shaving far better. Female skin is more delicate and we would never recommend razors for the face. 

But what if it feels like the only option?

What if you’re so embarrassed about hair growth you feel like you’re running out of options for removing it?

Female facial hair can feel a bit like the final taboo, but did you know it’s incredibly common? Whether you’re a darker-haired, blonde-haired, and fed up with peach fuzz, or have an underlying cause of hair growth such as a hormonal issue like polycystic ovaries (PCOS), mental health is often impacted by excess facial hair. 

Facial hair on women can have a big impact on confidence, we’ve seen and heard it many times in the clinic. Women are worried they will be approached in public about it, someone will ask why they’re so hairy. Often they don’t even tell their husband or closest loved ones that they have concerns about their hair growth. 

Our promise at Tej & Co is that we will remove hair quickly and effectively, tailoring the hair removal to each person’s hair and skin type. We help our clients restore their confidence by helping with hair removal and ensuring that the hair removal method offered gives the longest time between treatments and helps to break the habit of searching for stray hairs.

Over the past 20 years, our clinic has grown to be a leading destination for all things hair removal. Whether it’s waxinghair removal by laser or electrolysis, each has a specific benefit depending on the client’s requirements and also their hair and skin type. 

We see all genders in the clinic and it’s one of the things we love about our work. Meeting new people and guiding them through their particular hair or skin concerns is our passion, and we will always give an honest and unbiased view. 

We also need to remember that hair gives the skin a protective barrier so a small amount of hair or ‘peach fuzz’ is entirely normal. You don’t need to remove it and removing it can sometimes affect the natural barrier of the skin. We often see this when we assess skin as part of the corneotherapy consultation and there has been a big increase in clients seeking repair to their skin barrier in recent years. Trends such as chemical peels, microdermabrasion, and dermaplaning can all affect the skin barrier depending on skin type and sensitivity levels.

So as we head into 2023, and with the promise of a happy and healthy year ahead we want clients both old and new to know we are here to help. Whether with hair removal, skincare care treatments, and techniques or to offer an experienced and unbiased opinion via a consultation in the clinic. Please come and see us if you would like expert guidance from our friendly team of skincare experts.
