How to permanently reduce unwanted facial hair?
Permanent hair reduction with laser hair removal treatments reduces unwanted facial hair by focussing intense laser energy into the hair follicle where it is damaged and regrowth is prevented.
When you schedule your facial laser hair removal treatments about four to six weeks apart for a six to twelve-month period, most will see up to an 80% permanent reduction in hair growth. The small amount of regrowth that occurs is progressively softer and much finer than previously, so it less obvious and easier to manage.
Permanently reducing unwanted hair using laser also has the benefit of destroying ingrown hairs and reducing the risk of new ones forming. It is less painful than waxing and far safer and more time efficient than a lifetime of shaving, waxing or using depilatory creams.
It is best to avoid any form of tanning and sun exposure for two weeks prior to your laser treatment so that the laser can easily target the pigment in the hair follicle, not in your skin. Laser works best when you have a contract between your skin and your hair colour, for example pale skin and dark hair is ideal, and easy for the laser to identify and target the unwanted hair.
How many laser hair removal sessions will you need?
Every individual is different. Aside from the area being treated and the type of hair, factors influencing permanent results include your gender, age, hormone levels, skin type and colour.
We suggest between eight and twelve treatments are required to achieve permanent results, but of course this is affected by the variables mentioned above. For the best results don’t wax the hair before or between sessions, but shaving is suitable as it doesn’t remove the hair follicle.
The number of sessions needed will be discussed with you and determined as you progress through the treatments depending on your hair regrowth rates. . Regardless, facial laser hair removal remains the most affordable solution for those seeking hair removal with permanent results.
What areas of the face can you get laser hair removal?
Both men and women can achieve a permanent reduction in hair growth by treating the full face or selected areas. Individual areas for men and women include the sides of the face, the ears, eyebrows, top lip, chin, or top lip and chin combined, nose, neck, or full face and neck combined.
How much does facial laser hair removal cost?
The cost of facial laser hair removal depends on the treatment area and the number of treatments needed. It can be cost effective to opt for a full face treatment if you have more than two areas which require treatment. Savings can be made by choosing bundled areas such as top lip and chin, or full face and neck, and by purchasing 5 pack treatments. Click here to see our full laser hair removal price list.
Is it safe to get laser hair removal on your face?
At Clear Skincare Laser Clinics the medical grade Alexandrite laser machines are used, which is recognised as the world’s leading laser hair removal technology providing the optimum safety and highly effective results for fair, dark and olive skin types.
Whether it is on your face or any body part, laser hair removal is safe as long as it is applied by qualified therapists and you follow the recommended pre and post care instructions. The hightly trained and certified therapists at Clear Skincare Laser Clinics strictly advise you to avoid tanning or tan products, because when your skin is tanned, the laser beam may not be able to identify the pigment in your hair, potentially damaging your skin. Of course, all medical procedures carry some degree of risk but the side effects of laser hair removal treatments are minimal. It is possible to have some minor redness and skin irritation after your treatment but a patch test beforehand will determine if your skin will tolerate the laser.
Does it hurt to get laser hair removal on your face?
Everyone’s pain threshold is different. Some say waxing doesn’t hurt much and others find it unbearable. Your pain tolerance with respect to skin sensitivity can also vary from day to day due to a variety of factors. Hormone levels can affect pain sensitivity as can medications and your general state of health and how much sleep you had the night before.
Laser facial hair removal has been described as feeling like a warm sting which feels a little like sunburn afterwards. You may find areas of the face such as the top lip more sensitive than other areas such as the chin or eyebrows – but everyone is different.
