A common problem among aging women, salt and pepper facial hair poses a significant psychosocial impact as well as a challenge
for treatment. Various laser therapies or topical eflornithine HCl 13.9% cream are commonly used to reduce the rate
of hair growth. We report a case of a woman with salt and pepper hair in the beard distribution. A combination of laser hair
removal with concurrent use of topical eflornithine was used in the treatment.
