I have tried getting it waxed, and the (young) beautician just does what she calls a lip and chin, but tbh I need it over most of my chin, and all down my throat to get the odd ones. I have been using cream, which is good for the soft ones, but still end up pulling the stiff ones out (TMI)
I'm a great fan of threading. I use it for eyebrows (harder hair) and top lip (still soft). It 's not a permanent solution but the visits are becoming less frequent. Because of my sensitive skin, I much prefer threading to a cream, even if the top lip experience is a bit stingy-no more than waxing! I haven't tried chin or full face yet. I find threading more effective than a pair of tweezers and definitely less painful.
You're right about lasering only disposing of the dark hairs, Parsley. I had it a few years ago and it did a good job of getting rid of the darks but I still have a few obnoxious colourless pig bristles. Threading is brilliant, much better than tweezing, mainly because it gets rid of everything all in one fell swoop, but also because someone else is doing it in a really good light - with tweezing, you only get the ones you can see yourself!
