Can laser hair removal be used to address unwanted facial hair?

One of the most popular cosmetic treatments available at the Lupo Center for Aesthetic and General Dermatology is laser hair removal. Laser technology has been around for many years and continues to be one of the best ways to address a variety of medical and cosmetic concerns. Special laser devices available at the practice of Drs. Mary Lupo and Katherine Holcomb provide patients with an effective and permanent way to address unwanted hair. Our team of professionals works closely with patients to help them determine if laser hair removal therapy is the best method for their skin and hair type, and desired outcome.

Laser hair removal can be used on both facial hair and hair on the body. Facial hair may include the beard, moustache, sideburns, or eyebrows. Wherever hair is present on the body, it can be treated with laser hair removal services at our practice.

Laser hair removal must be done in a series of treatments for optimum results. For patients seeking simple reduction of hair in a specific area, one or two treatments may be sufficient. However, full clearance requires patients to commit to a number of treatments to achieve the results they desire. The hair’s reaction to the laser device determines how many sessions may be beneficial. Additionally, sessions must be scheduled approximately six weeks apart to ensure hair is targeted during the growth cycle, for the most thorough reduction. The body continues to produce some new hair follicles over time, but new growth is typically thin and fine. Periodic touch-up appointments keep skin smooth and sleek.
