Laser hair removal for the face is one of the most popular treatments at Skin Perfection London. When it comes to the face, laser works the same way as it does on any other parts of the body. Because facial hair is a result of hormonal imbalance in female patients, it can be a very frustrating condition to live with. But facial hair can also inconvenience male patients, who are prone to ingrowing hair and have a sensitive skin. As a result shaving irritates their skin further.
What is laser hair removal
Laser destroys the hair by emitting a single concentrated light beam. The pigment in your hair absorbs this light and turns it into heat. As a result the heat energy effectively ‘disables’ the hair growth.
There are many benefits to laser hair removal. Not only it can save you time and money. But also saves you from a lot of unnecessary skin conditions. It’s also safe for all skin types to remove unwanted body and facial hair.
At Skin Perfection London, we offer class 4, medical grade laser treatment. The manufacturers are a leading brand named Cynosure who distribute lasers globally and over the medical and aesthetic industry. Our lasers are classed as “gold standard” to safely treat all skin types with two wavelengths. Thus for our patients with lighter skin we use the Alexandrite. And for our patients with darker skin tones we apply the ND YAG.
So why choose laser hair removal for the face?
Female patients – About 1 in 10 women suffer from excessive growth of coarse and dark facial hair. The medical term for which is hirsutism. It’s a condition that can have a serious affect on your self-esteem and your social life. Laser hair removal is recommended by doctors and the NHS as an effective treatment for hirsutism. Statistics show that after a full course of facial hair removal treatment, between 60% and 95% of targeted hair will be reduced or permanently removed. For best results, we recommend an initial course of eight to ten sessions. With additional top-ups where needed.
Male patients – Shaving, waxing, epilating and other forms of hair removal can be costly and time-consuming. Not to mention they can also irritate the skin. Also cause ingrown hairs. And leave you with spots, bumps or scars. Laser hair removal is fast, simple and safe, removing excess hair without these unpleasant side effects.
