Should You Really Shave Your Face?

Bid adios to hairy situations as face shaving is nothing new. Legend has it that Marilyn Monroe, Cleopatra and Elizabeth Taylor all shaved their faces as part of their beauty regime. Due to the popularisation by beauty bloggers, face shaving has become one of the top must-do during one’s beauty routine. 

There are many advantages when it comes to face shaving. Aside from the common — getting rid of visible facial hair on chin, jawline, upper lip, shaving also removes superfine hairs called peach fuzz.

Huda Kattan (or Huda Beauty) claims that shaving the peach fuzz on the face helps to exfoliate the skin, has anti-aging benefits, beneficial for scars, removes dead skin cells, and other build-ups. Most importantly, this is the secret method for keeping skin smooth as butter for makeup application as there is no hair interfering.

The common myth for face shaving is that you risk coarser and darker regrowth once you start shaving. Debunked: this is untrue. However, the drawbacks of shaving are that you’ll have to deal with stubble, as facial hair grows back in less than 24 hours. Ingrown hairs are also a major concern as extra care like weekly exfoliation and moisturising is a MUST during your shaving routine. Lastly, the smooth buttery feeling is short-lived, which means you will have to shave very frequently, or even daily, adding extra time to your grooming.

That being said, you may want to opt for a more permanent method — laser hair removal to stay smooth for a long while!

There are loads of options for hair removal — shaving, waxing, threading, depilatory creams, and electrolysis. That being said, you may want to opt for a more permanent method — laser hair removal to stay smooth for a long while!

At The Body Firm, we offer the gold standard of dermatological treatments. We are focused on providing state-of-the-art treatments backed by scientific evidence.

Our technology combines Intense Pulse Light (IPL) with SmartPulse technology to penetrate deep layers of skin to target pigments and destroy hair follicles. When the underlying follicle is being destroyed, it gets rid of existing hair and also inhibits future hair growth.

How does it work?

A high level of light energy is combined with maximum heat distribution to target pigments beneath the skin’s surface, without damaging any surrounding tissue. With the consistent heat distribution and real-time cooling system, our treatment ensures the utmost safety, keeping your skin protected.

Who is it suitable for?

This laser hair removal is generally safe for all skin type and tone*. A course of treatment will be recommended for a long-lasting outcome, depending on the area treated and the coarseness of the hair.

*Disclaimer: Each individual’s treatment and/or results may vary from person to person depending upon many variables such as age, gender and lifestyle. Testimonials within this site are not intended as guaranteed outcomes.
