The other way is pulling hair with the help of cosmetic tweezers, which adjust the shape of the eyebrows. The mole must be healthy, i.e. when pressing on it should not be painful; the skin around the mole needs to be clean without signs of inflammation; the edges of moles should be smooth, and the mole is flat, uniform in color, with a diameter of no more than a pencil. If all parameters normal, then you can try to remove the hair. Stretch the skin around the mole with two fingers. This will facilitate the removal of hair and will make the process less painful. Try to grab the hair at the root, while not touching the mole. Tear out hair in one confident movement.
