Unwanted facial hair can be a nuisance for men and women alike so knowing how to shave a unibrow without it growing back will at least eliminate one of those hair woes. After all, not every part of a man's face looks good with hair on it…namely the space between his eyes. If you are among those who have been bestowed with an abundance of eyebrow hair, you may have wondered on multiple occasions how you can shave a unibrow without it growing back. Unfortunately, this just isn't possible. On the bright side, there are alternative methods of hair removal that can potentially slow the regrowth process from what it would be after shaving.
- Wax your unibrow. It may hurt for a few seconds, but the bottom line is, people use wax because it lasts longer than shaving. While shaving only removes hair from the surface of the skin, waxing removes hair from the follicle entirely, so it takes longer to grow back. Just remember to remove the wax quickly, against the direction of hair growth, and moisturize the skin thoroughly afterward. Also keep in mind that waxing can sometimes cause ingrown hairs, although this is less likely to happen with the finer hairs found in a unibrow.
- Use hair removal cream on your unibrow. Aside from being more gentle on your skin than shaving, facial hair removal creams can also give you more time in between touch ups. The difference may not be much at first since shaving removes a thin layer of your skin along with the hair, whereas hair removal cream does not, but the more skin you leave on your face, the more skin your unibrow has to break through to become visible when it grows back. Again, the difference may be minimal, but some have claimed that using hair removal cream consistently has caused their unwanted hair to grow back thinner over time.
- Get laser hair removal on your unibrow. While this is definitely the most extreme solution, it is the only solution that will actually stop your unibrow from growing back. It can take several sessions to remove all of the hair since hair grows in phases, but the results would be permanent. It's important to keep in mind that there is a risk of scarring if laser hair removal is not done properly though, so make sure you are treated by trained medical professionals rather than just looking for the lowest price.
