Laser Hair Removal for Unwanted Facial Hair - Nottingham, Derby, Mansfield & Chesterfield

When we see hairy men, most of us see it as a sign of virility; but on women, excess hair is embarrassing and unwanted. We see women in the media who always seem to look perfect, and it's difficult for us ordinary folk to match up to this ideal. Because we have hair in places we'd rather not, we tend to shave, pluck or wax excess hair from every area of exposed skin.

Removing unwanted hair is time-consuming and repetitive no matter what your preferred hair removal technique is, and whether you shave, tweeze, wax, thread or use depilatory creams, the hair will always grow back. You'll find the skin on your face is sensitive, and constantly using harsh hair removal treatments can cause a great deal of skin irritation.

All women have hair on the face, usually it's fair and fine and is difficult to see, but those will darker hair are not so lucky. You will find that most of your female friends have the same issues when it comes to unwanted facial hair, and the hair on the upper lip, chin and sideburns can all be very embarrassing and cause a great deal of insecurity. It seems that every time you think you've disposed of  unwanted hair, you'll find more of it sprouting up somewhere else, and even worse, after you get rid of the hairs, they just grow back.

You can cover up your excess hair in areas that aren't constantly exposed, but the hair on your face is always on display, and it can seem as though everyone is always looking at the hairs on your upper lip, chin or sideburns, but you can get rid of it with laser hair removal.

Benefits of laser hair removal:
  • Permanently reduces hair safely
  • Fast treatment time
  • Boosts your self-confidence
  • Prevents razor bumps and irritation
  • Minimal discomfort
Laser energy gets absorbed by the pigment in the hair follicle, this laser energy is then converted to heat causing thermal damage to the follicle without harming the surrounding skin. This results in hair growth being stopped in the damaged follicle. Generally for white skin we require around 6 treatments, spaced 4-6 weeks apart, and this usually results in 80% of hair removal. Darker or black skin may need around 8 treatments, resulting again in 80% of hair removed.

Most clients experience minimal discomfort; some may experience a minor stinging or pinching sensation on the skin as we deliver the laser pulses, but we can offer topical anaesthetic cream to make treatments more comfortable. At Selston Cosmetic Clinics we can perform laser hair removal treatment on white or black skin. It's not possible to treat white, grey, and blond hair by laser.
