Facial Laser Hair Removal for Women
Facial hair on women is not as uncommon as you would think. Although it is usually very thin, some conditions like PCOS can cause thicker hair growth for women as well. Either you want to get rid of the fine hair for a smoother makeup application, or remove the hair caused by a medical issue, laser treatment will be the right choice for you.
With laser hair removal you can quickly gain back all your confidence in no downtime. While shaving and waxing can be too harsh on the skin, leaving scars, razor burn or ingrown hair behind, laser hair removal can safely remove your facial hair permanently in just a couple of minutes.
This is a minimally invasive procedure where the light targets the hairs at the follicle directly, where the melanin absorbs it and converts it into heat that damages the follicles and stops the hair growth. If you have unwanted hair on your face, laser hair removal is the best option to prevent irritation and save time on regular waxing or shaving. You can get very smooth results in just minutes.
Some common areas to treat for women are upper lips, chin and sideburns, but the procedure can be done on every area of your face except the eyelids. That includes the forehead, cheeks, temples, so wherever you feel uncomfortable about your hair, we can make it disappear.
Proper preparation is always essential when it comes to laser treatments, but since the face is always the most exposed, it is especially important that you follow the given guidelines. You should avoid direct sun exposure and always use sun protection. You also shouldn’t touch the hair for about four weeks prior to the treatment. This will protect the targeted follicles for an easier removal process. You will receive exact and personalized instructions from our licensed estheticians at LEC when you sign up for a treatment.
Is laser hair removal painful on the face? The pain tolerance is different for everyone, and the face is definitely a sensitive area, but let’s be honest—if you ever used wax on your face, the pain caused by these modern laser tools will feel like nothing.
