Do you struggle with unwanted hair on your chin, cheeks, upper lip, or even your eyebrows?

Good news: there are excellent options that can help you solve this problem including laser hair removal and electrolysis.

So are you ready to put your tweezers down for good? This is what you need to know…

Facial Hair Removal Options

In the past, typical remedies for removing unwanted hair included plucking, shaving, waxing, or chemical depilatories. But those methods are painful and messy, and all of them are only temporary.

If you’re looking for long-term facial hair removal, electrolysis is definitely worth considering. This treatment is especially practical for targeting small areas, like the upper lip. It’s popular and effective and Stephanie at Hair Today Gone Tomorrow is an expert electrologist; she has even been a Chairperson for the Federation of Canadian Electrolysis Association since 2009.

Laser hair removal is also a safe and effective option. Although laser hair removal is particularly excellent for larger areas like legs and underarms, it can be used to remove unwanted facial hair too. At Hair Today Gone Tomorrow, we use a state-of-the-art system that’s specially designed to remove unwanted hair quickly and reliably.

So how do these facial hair removal methods work?


Electrology is the practice of electrical epilation to remove your unwanted hair permanently. The actual process of removing your hair is known as electrolysis. During electrolysis, Stephanie will slide a solid hair-thin metal probe into each of your hair follicles. It does not puncture your skin and it’s safe and reliable.

Once the metal probe is in place, electricity is delivered to the follicle via the probe, which results in localized damage to the area that produces your unwanted hair. The electric current that passes through the prope during the procedure works to destroy each individual hair root.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal treatments work by sending the laser’s light through the pigment in your hair. This light converts to heat, which in turn damages the hair follicle and hair bulb, so the hair doesn’t grow back.

Traditionally, laser hair removal worked best for people with fair skin and dark hair because the light from the laser didn’t get absorbed by dark pigments in the skin surrounding the hair follicle. But there’s great news for anyone with darker skin!

New devices have hit the market with longer wavelengths, which are completely effective for treating darker skin types! And we have the state of the art equipment right here at Hair Today Gone Tomorrow in St. Catharines! These types of lasers can reach the deepest hair follicles with lower light absorption in the surrounding skin, making it another great option for removing unwanted facial hair.
