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

Other Facial Hair Removal Methods


It’s not just for men! Many women also turn to shaving to get rid of unwanted peach fuzz.

However, it’s best to be careful if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin: shaving across active acne lesions can cause cuts to your skin and cause further inflammation.

Depilatory Creams

This breaks down the chemical structure in hair follicles, causing it to weaken and dissolve. This leaves hair strands in a state that is weakened enough so that they’re easy to rub off with the cream.

However, such creams can be irritating to sensitive skin and should be used with caution. If you opt for this method of facial hair removal, make sure you do a patch test first to ensure that the cream works for you.

Unlike laser treatments that emit concentrated pulses of light directed at your hair follicles, intensed pulse light (IPL) treatments emit broad, scattered pulses of light across the treatment area.
This means that the light energy from IPL treatments is directed at both your hair follicles and your skin, making it effective only for those with fairer skin and dark hair.
