Men and women both struggle with unwanted hair. Excess hair can be embarrassing and frustrating, especially facial hair on women. Women can pluck, shave, wax, thread, and use all of the over-the-counter creams they can find, but after a while, it still grows back. Removing hair is tricky because of the body’s natural cycle to re-grow hair. However, after a few laser hair removal treatments, the unwanted hair can be gone-for good.
Laser hair removal is safe and effective. The lasers send out light wavelengths, which are absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft. The laser’s power is concentrated in the hair shaft, so it will destroy the hair, but it will not hurt the surrounding skin. Laser hair removal requires multiple treatments since hair grows in cycles. The length and number of treatments necessary depends on the area being treated, type of skin, and density of hair. Laser hair removal is even safe enough to get rid of unwanted facial hair.
If you have facial hairs starting to pop up, be prepared because it does tend to worsen with age. Post menopausal women are more likely to grow unwanted facial hair because menopause changes hormones, and imbalanced or changing hormones tend to produce hair growth. It is better to get facial laser hair removal at an earlier age because the lasers will not pick up lighter hair pigments; meaning grey and white hair is extremely difficult to safely remove.
