How To Get Rid Of Peach Fuzz On Cheeks
Removing Cheek Peach Fuzz
Got some peach fuzz on your cheeks?
You’re not alone. This is common among women, and luckily, it’s easier to get rid of than you think!
Whether you’re dealing with dark, coarse hair or light hair on your cheeks, there are several ways to remove unwanted cheek hair. We’re here to give you the scoop on the latest hair removal methods that’ll give you silky soft skin in no time!
WHY DO I HAVE HAIR ON MY CHEEKS IN THE FIRST PLACE?
Having hair on your cheeks or anywhere else on your face is super common, and is often due to familial hirsutism. If you’re unfamiliar with this term, it basically just means that you’ve got a genetic tendency toward excess hair growth. There are other potential causes of excess facial hair though, including polycystic ovary syndrome, pituitary tumors, certain medications, and hormonal imbalances, so make sure you speak with your doctor first to rule out these medical conditions and/or medication side effects!
WHICH HAIR REMOVAL METHOD IS RIGHT FOR ME?
If you have cheek hair, there are lots of different hair removal options to choose from, but not all of them are ideal for the area. You can temporarily remove cheek hair with waxing, tweezing, and threading, which all remove hair from the root, but they can definitely be very painful and carry the risk of skin irritation. All that for the facial hair to just grow back in a matter of weeks. No thanks!
If you’re serious about permanently reducing the amount of cheek hair you have, then laser hair removal is your best option. Laser hair removal is typically less painful than waxing, doesn’t require you to grow out hair between treatments, and can result in permanent hair reduction after just a few sessions. Let’s get to the ins and outs of laser hair removal.
THE MAGIC BEHIND THE LASER
Laser Hair Removal uses laser light pulses that selectively destroy hair follicles by targeting the melanin in them. The follicle’s pigment absorbs the laser’s light pulse, damaging the follicle enough to significantly slow down hair regrowth. Since the lasers target melanin, patients with coarse, dark hair and light skin combinations tend to respond best to treatment.
For patients with darker skin and hair, lasers such as the Nd:YAG, laser can eliminate unwanted hair. The Nd:YAG laser — which is the laser we use at LaserAway! — has a longer wavelength and is highly sensitive to all pigment and melanin, meaning it can more precisely penetrate hair follicles without damaging surrounding skin and works on all skin types.
YOUR FIRST LASER HAIR REMOVAL SESSION
The length of a laser hair removal procedure depends on the size of the treatment area, so a session can last anywhere from a few minutes to an hour. If you’re just looking to get the hair on your cheeks treated, it won’t take very long at all! Before the actual laser hair removal session, you’ll be given protective eye gear, and once the session begins, your nurse will test out the laser on your skin to get you used to the sensation. The session itself involves a series of laser pulses that result in a slight prickling sensation.
After the laser hair removal session is over, you may experience temporary swelling and redness. Most clients can resume their normal activities, however it is of utmost importance that you avoid direct sun exposure. We highly recommend that you continue to wear sunblock with a high SPF for several weeks afterward.
SO WHAT’S YOUR BEST OPTION? LASER HAIR REMOVAL!
Laser hair removal is the preferred way to remove cheek hair because it’s safer and more permanent than other methods such as waxing, plucking, and threading. The results are so effective that most patients experience permanent hair reduction after an average of ten to twelve sessions. This does require patience, as you do have to undergo multiple sessions to obtain maximum results, because only hair in the anagen—or active—stage of hair growth can be successfully treated. But the life-long results of laser hair removal are well worth the wait!
