Facial hair can be a deeply concerning issue for many women. Although common, it’s something many women who suffer from it desperately try to hide.
If you are currently using temporary hair removal methods like plucking, shaving or waxing, you will know those facial hair removal methods are never-ending. Enter: medical grade laser hair removal. If you suffer from unwanted facial hair or excess facial hair as a result of a condition like PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome), our expert team can help you. Give them a call on 1800 052 737 or request a complimentary appointment online.
What is Laser Facial Hair Removal?
With laser hair removal we can remove unwanted hair from pretty much anywhere on your body. For full information on how our medical grade lasers work to remove facial hair, see our Melbourne laser hair removal page. On that page we look at the science behind our industry leading lasers for facial hair removal.
The skin on your face is one of the most sensitive areas of your body. Repeated facial hair removal through shaving, waxing, or plucking can cause irritation, itching, ingrown hairs and rashes.
With laser facial hair removal, you’ll get smooth skin safely and effectively. You’ll also experience:
- Less time taking care of unwanted hair during your daily routine;
- No more throwing money away on hair removal once your treatments are complete.
How it Works
During your laser facial hair removal sessions, a skilled clinician will aim a concentrated beam of light at your unwanted hair, using a small piece of equipment that rests right on your skin. The light gets absorbed by the follicle pigments, which results in future hair growth being stunted. On average, laser facial hair removal patients reach their desired results in about six to eight sessions. However, more sessions may be needed depending on how much hair is being treated, its texture, and its colour. Once you’ve completed the initial sessions, you may need to have touch-ups done one to four times a year depending on your facial hair growth.
Common laser facial hair removal treatment areas include:
- Upper Lip
Uses for Men
While women make up the majority of facial hair removal patients, many men also choose to sculpt their beard, or remove their beards. Many of our male clients have hair growing too high on their face and would like to have this unwanted facial hair removed. For more information see the men’s laser hair removal page.
Common areas men treat with laser facial hair removal include:
- Beard Sculpting
- Full beard
- Neckline (around the edges of where a beard would be)
- Back of neck
Laser Facial Hair Removal and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome
This is a condition in which a woman’s hormones become unbalanced. In most cases of PCOS, numerous small cysts grow on the patient’s ovaries.
PCOS often leads to one or more of these symptoms:
- Irregular menstrual cycles
- Difficulties becoming pregnant
- Troubling acne
- Increased blood sugar levels
- Weight gain
Because hormonal imbalances can cause a woman’s body to produce more of the male sex hormone than is normal, PCOS also sometimes results in extra facial and body hair growth.
We treat many females at our South Melbourne and Bundoora clinics and we understand the emotional impact of unwanted hair growth due to PCOS. Laser facial hair removal is an ideal solution for women struggling with unwanted hair growth due to PCOS.
