Ladies, a couple of questions about how you handle your facial hair.

Particularly the hair on your upper-lip. I do not wax this hair, as I am a sissy about pain and also it necessitates letting the hair grow till it's long enough to wax. Not a great look. My hair is dark and my skin quite light, which does not help...
I have had my best results with waxing followed by threading the remainder, however this is doubly painful AND quite expensive as you have to go to a salon to do it. So, I use facial hair removing cream - pain-free and cost-effective. My questions:
a) Is it safe to use this cream about once a week or am I doing horrible chemical damage to my skin? I use the cream for sensitive skin so in theory it should be quite gentle. My hair grows very fast and if I leave it for any longer it starts to show and look quite awful. My doctor thinks I might have PCOS and I am going to get this checked, but that would apparently explain the luxuriant facial hair-growth.
b) Do I have any other options?
Any advice or insight would be welcome.
