When it comes to removing facial hair for women, what you do about it and how you go about doing it is a personal choice. But if this is a condition that bothers you, know that there are many ways to get unwanted facial hair safely removed.
Among the myriad of ways to get rid of facial hair, one of the safest ways to get rid of it is
laser hair removal
What happens during the facial laser hair removal procedure?
Generally, a numbing cream is applied to your skin prior to the procedure, to make it a fuss-free process. Common spots for facial hair removal generally include the upper lips, chin, and cheeks.
The laser directs a concentrated pulse of light into your skin. The 1064nm laser is absorbed by your hair follicles, effectively destroying it while leaving the rest of your skin unharmed.
While no facial hair removal method can give you permanent hair removal, after a few sessions of laser treatments, you will notice significantly fewer hairs, which will also be finer and less visible.
What are the benefits of laser hair removal over other methods?
- No ingrown hairs
- Reduced risk of infection from accidental cuts
- Only method that permanently reduces hair growth (but note that there is no such thing as permanent hair removal)
- Safer for all skin colours and types as opposed to IPL
