Facial Hair Removal

Facial-hair-removalLaser Permanent Hair Removal

If you’re not happy with shaving, tweezing, or waxing to remove unwanted facial hairs, laser permanent hair removal may be an option worth considering. 

How does Laser Permanent Hair Removal works ?

The laser energy is selectively absorbed by dark coloured pigments within hair follicles leaving the surrounding skin intact. The hair is destroyed within the follicle. The limitation of laser hair removal is that light-coloured hairs (light blonde or white hairs) cannot be removed using this method. 

How many sessions of Laser Permanent Hair Removal do I need ?

Most people will need an average of 3 to 6 treatments, at approximately 4 weeks’ intervals. 

Are the results of Laser Hair Removal permanent ?

The effects of laser hair removal are permanent, although a touch-up may be required occasionally from time to time for best results. 

What are the possible side effects of Laser Hair Removal ?

Occasionally, temporary soreness and mild redness of the treated skin may occur after treatment. 

What are the benefits of Laser Hair Removal over other methods of hair removal such as Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) ?

Laser hair removal can be safely performed on all skin types, including people with dark skin whereas most IPLs are only safe to treat those with fair skin types. 

How do I prepare for Laser Hair Removal ?

If you are planning to undergo laser hair removal, you should limit plucking, waxing and electrolysis for four weeks before the treatment because the doctor needs to locate the hairs’ roots (which are temporarily removed by waxing or plucking). You should also avoid sun exposure for at least four weeks before and after treatment as sun exposure may increase the risk of complications following treatment.
