Bleaching, What Is It? Is It Safe?

What is Bleaching? Bleaching facial and body hair is a method of hair removal, but actually, it does not involve hair removal at all. Bleaching is a process of making hair in facial and body areas, less visible.

Bleaching is especially useful for areas that have thin but dark, noticeable hair like on the arms, face, or neck. Thus bleaching works well on hair that is not thick or long. How Does It Work?

It works by inserting a probe into the follicle, like you also do in electrolysis.
