You might be thinking if shaving can give you thicker hair Then no your hair will grow as they were and in the same texture and length. It is safe!

You can be hair free and smooth for 3-4 days before you need to try it again. As simple as that!

Hair Removal Cream

Cream procedure is very simple and quick idea to remove the upper lip hair. You just need a good hair removal cream. Brands like Veet, Anne French are very easily available you can try them. Just apply the cream over the hair and leave for 15-20 minutes.

Mild tingling would be there, like we experience while we bleach the face. After that, you can remove the cream with the spatula or wipe and rinse the skin

There is no pain. It is a painless way to get rid of upper lip hair but it is not permanent. Like shaving the cream remove the hair which re above these akin and not from the roots, so they will grow back within 3-4 day. Don’t worry the thickness, texture and color will be exactly the same. So, no such side effects!


Waxing includes the application for a sticky wax on the skin. This wax is then removed along with a  thin strip which pulls off the hair strands from the roots, in the process. Since the hair is removed from the roots, it is painless.

Pain associated is not much but I understand some people have low pain threshold so, can hurt. But for those who can bear it, it is the best way to remove facial hair on upper lip. After waxing the hair comes after at least 15-20 days and it also depends from person on person.


Just like the waxing, thread involves removal of hair from the roots. It is done with a thread which pinches the hair and pulls them off. This is more painful then waxing s waxing is done in a  single go while threading the upper lip takes at least 10-12 swipes of the thread honestly. You can get the hair back after 2-3 weeks.


Yes, tweezers can do but it takes time and the pain is even more. So, I am sure a lot of you who need painless method won’t go for tweezing. Even smell hairs are very difficult to get hold off.


Epilation too gets rid of the facial hair from the roots but involves pain and the cost. Getting an epilator is a one-time investment, if you but from a trusted brand. As the device lasts for years.


It is painless well kind of and is permanent! Yaay! But it is costly. So, if you think it fits the bill, then this is for you.

Now, it’s time to know about the homemade hair wax that is a quick hair removal method and does not cost a bomb.

So, if you are wondering, how to remove upper lip hair at home immediately? Waxing at home can be an instant method for you.
