facial hairDiscovering a chin hair is mortifying, but be reassured. If you have the odd rogue chin hair you’re not alone. 

Unfortunately, it is something that becomes more common with age. According to the British Journal of Dermatology, 2 in 5 menopausal women over 45 have excess facial hair and this appears mostly on their chins.

The cause of these unwelcome guests is an increased level of testosterone. What’s more, this new facial hair can often be coarser, longer and more deeply rooted making it more noticeable and more difficult to deal with.


While plucking the hair may be of benefit in the short term, electrolysis offers potentially permanent results. The treatment is ideal for stray hairs as it works in a very targeted way, destroying one follicle at a time.

Electrolysis is a medically approved form of permanent hair reduction.
