For women, excess facial hair is annoying, requires far too much attention and can be embarrassing. Tweezing is time-consuming and not always effective. Depilatories are messy and can irritate the skin. Waxing is painful and irritating. And all of these methods are only a temporary. So how does a woman go about unwanted facial hair removal?
Lasers are becoming increasingly common in dealing with unwanted facial hair removal. It is cost-effective, practically painless and can last for up to two years.
Unwanted facial hair removal uses only a laser to affect the hair follicle and prevent hair from growing. Following a treatment, hair will continue to fall out for up to two weeks. A patient may need multiple treatments spaced a few weeks apart for the best results.
The patient will wear goggles during the procedure to protect their eyes from the laser. There might be a slight stinging sensation – numbing cream may be used to alleviate this side effect. The length of the procedure depends on the size of the treated area. Following the procedure, the patient may experience dry skin, but vaseline can be used. In addition, there may be brief swelling or redness.
It is also recommended that patients wear high SPF sunscreen and avoid sun exposure to protect their healing skin. In addition, patients should not scrub, pick, tweeze or wax skin as it can irritate it further.
Messing with tweezers, waxes and creams are ineffective and annoying; so check out lasers for unwanted facial hair removal.
