What’s the Difference Between Laser Hair Removal for the Face and Body?

atlanta laser hair removalBoth men and women develop body and facial hair, although facial hair for women tends to be more fine and lighter in color. At Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, our licensed professionals understand that hair removal is unique depending on each patient’s skin as well as the area of desired hair removal on the face or body.

Vellus hair is the short, fine, and unpigmented hair found on most of the body. However, the density of hair or the amount of hair per area of skin varies for each individual.  This is the type of hair that women tend to have on their face while male facial hair will grow darker and thicker. Since the face tends to be more sensitive and delicate than other areas of the body, the lasers’ settings are adjusted to appropriately target hair follicles without harming the surrounding skin.

Our FDA-approved, medical grade laser equipment is safe for hair removal on both the face and body including popular areas such as the bikini, legs, underarms, arms, face, and chest. Our certified laser hair removal technicians discuss with each patient their desired results and expectations. During consultation, they will be able to determine the number of treatments needed based on each patient’s skin color, hair color, and hair texture.
