Permanent facial hair removal can be very effectively performed with the use of lasers. It’s safe and effective, and is an easy and cost-effective way to achieve beautiful hair free skin, making it a great solution to restoring your self-confidence. Getting rid of hair permanently? Read some tips before you go for it:
- Don’t tan for at least two weeks before your procedure as tanning lotions can increase the risk of hyperpigmentation
- Don’t wax as hair must be present for the process to be successful
- You can shave the area as the entire hair shaft isn’t removed
- Remove any make up before you go!
- Tell your therapist if you’re taking any new medication, or on anti-biotics
The laser emits a specific beam of light at a wavelength that targets the melanin and the follicle growth centre. The laser beam passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair follicle itself. The repeated pulses from the laser firstly eliminate existing hair, and then penetrate the skin to prevent future growth.
It’s effective on most skin types thanks to new technologies and works on many skin tones and complexions, but is best for hair that’s brunette or darker. Light blonde, light red or white hair that doesn’t have any pigment isn’t suitable for this treatment.
There may be mild discomfort during the treatment, but you can ask for a numbing cream to be applied before it begins. Treatments can last from minutes to hours depending on the size of the treatment area.
Permanent hair removal is only successful if a series of treatments are performed – this is due to at any given time some hairs will be resting rather than growing. The laser won’t be effective on these resting hairs, so that’s why on average five treatments are needed to achieve maximum results.
You may need a touch up a couple of times a year to maintain the improvement, or if you have a family history of excessive hair growth.
