For many women, a fuzzy upper lip is an annoyance. Hair on the upper lip can often be cause for embarrassment and frustration, which is why many choose to remove this unwanted hair.
There are plenty of methods out there for removing upper lip hair, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Plucking and waxing removes hair at the root, but it can be a tedious task, not to mention painful. Depilatory and hair removal creams dissolve hairs, but only on the surface and the chemicals tend to cause irritation to the skin.
Despite the differences, all these methods have one thing in common: they are not a permanent hair removal solution. It might only take a few days before the unsightly hairs have reemerged.
That’s why more and more people are discovering laser hair removal as a method of removing upper lip hairs. Not only is it permanent, it’s no more painful than plucking or waxing.
Sounds too good to be true? Read on to find out if laser hair removal is for you.
Questions about laser hair removal? Talk to us.
How does it work?
It works by focusing laser light on the desired area. The laser is set at a specific wavelength and targets the pigment in hair whilst avoiding the pigment in skin. The laser travels down to the hair root, destroying the hair and preventing further hair regrowth.
The overall effectiveness of laser hair removal depends on your skin tone as well as the colour and thickness of the hair to be removed. There is no such thing as a ‘one size fits all’ approach so it’s important to consult a laser hair removal specialist first.
