I guess almost all women have white peach fuzz on their faces.
I do not have a good enough camera to make a photo of mine. But I attached photos of two celebrities (unfortunately, media did criticize them for their peach fuzz!).
What would be better solution to remove this peach fuzz?
I guess that waxing is not a good idea because facial hair can grow darker and sicker.

Shaving?

If electrolysis, is very good magnification (will X5 be enough or one would really need to find someone with a microscope?) and a very good lighting will be enough?

Or it will be even better to DYE all these white peach fuzz hair dark brown/black for guaranteeing good result?

You indicated that the media criticized these celebrities for their peach fuzz.
The media is supported by advertising so it seems to be their job to make us feel inadequate and insecure. In that way, they lock us in emotionally and we buy more and more stuff and services that they convince us that we need.

Waxing is an option, threading or shaving or depilatories and some folks even remove it by getting electrolysis. Laser would not be an option for peach fuzz.
Determining which is best would be contingent on one's personal situation.

There is room on the planet for all sorts of folks -- bravo to those who find success and love in life without falling prey to the manipulations and pressure of media.

I totally agree with you, Arlene. Well, said. However, in reality there are millions of women who want to tone down the fuzz. It is possible to do this with electrolysis. It is true that success with these tiny hairs requires a good vision set up and a good light for highlighting these blondes. I use surgical loupes, 5X magnification, and a halogen light You need appointments that are an hour or more, with each session in the beginning months and don't expect full satisfaction before 18 to 24 months, unless you are just focusing on a smaller area as opposed to most of your face and neck.

I see women who I personally think are beautiful just as they are, but they want the fuzz gone for their own satisfaction or self-esteem issues. It would be interesting to know if there was no media if women would still be seeking ways to move this kind of hair. I kind of think they would because there is a long history of people trying all kinds of ways to remove hair in some hideous ways.

In any case, electrolysis is the ticket, but find someone with a good set up who uses flash thermolysis like MicroFlash or PicoFlash to speed things along. If you can't find this, any modality will work as well.

Thank you very much for your reply! Do you think that dyeing hairs will make it easier to electrologist even with good magnification and light?

As a guy, I gotta say that neither of these women have anything close to what I would consider "a hair problem", and I would never make a dating choice, pro or con, based on the hair that is being discussed in these pictures.
Professionally speaking, if the electrolysis person had a circle lamp, the dye job might help, while it would be unneeded if one had good magnification and lighting on the level of an Operating Microscope.

For something less engrossing than permanent hair removal, I would suggest shaving for this type of hair, as it would be less likely to cause thickening and darkening than waxing, or depilatories.

I don't encourage women to remove their fuzz but if they want it removed, it is easy enough, as James says, with the right equipment.

You ask about waxing: When one waxes, there is no certainty how the hair will grow as it returns and there is a likelihood of ingrowns developing.

You ask if dying the hair has its advantages. You will have to ask that of the electrologist that you will be seeing. For me, it has no advantages or drawbacks so I suggest that clients leave the color as is.

If skin color is dark, bleaching is a very good idea, since there will be a greater contrast.
If no color contrast, never mind, veer a little lamp to produce a bit of shade, fine hair shine and you can see clearly where you have to insert the probe.

Thank you all for reply! It seems that the kind of peach fuzz needs really tiny needs like 0.001
Is it true?
But as far as I know – only Pro-tec produce 1 size probes.

Oh, I just found the information that not all needles/probes have the same diameter according to their numbers!
http://www.electricspa.com/category/Uni-Probe-Stainless-Needles.html

In the chart in the end of the link, it is said that The Uni-probe size 2 has "no equal" for fineness. For those clients with extremely velous hair and tight follicle openings, the Uni-Probe size 2 is the perfect probe.

It is said that Uni-Probe size 4 equals Ballet Size 2 and Pro-Tec Size 2!

Wow! What a difference!

I use size 3 probes mainly for peach fluff whether I am using a Laurier probe or a Ballet. Sometimes I have needed a size two.
