Is laser hair removal safe for face?


Are you seeking a permanent fix for the unwanted facial hair? You are not alone! People have been grooming their facial hair for years to look presentable. Gone are the days when mustaches and beards were attributed to men. Women nowadays have broken the men’s monopoly as you can spot a vast majority of women with well gown upper lips (resembling mustaches) and a thick hair growth on chin and sideburns – courtesy Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (POS).

While facial hair is considered as a symbol of masculinity for men, women with excessive facial hair simply look untidy and unpleasant. Women have long been using traditional techniques like threading and waxing to get rid of unwanted facial hair. These methods are without any doubt really effective in delivering results, but only temporary. Besides, they are also quite painful and can cause side effects like infection, burning and ingrown hair.

If you are also fed up of traditional hair removal methods and seeking a permanent fix, facial laser hair removal may be worth considering. Advancements in technology have made laser facial hair removal in Dubai a lot easier and safer. Earlier, the Ruby Lasers were effective for a limited class only – people with light skin tone and darker hair. However, the latest laser systems that use infrared light for killing hair, like the Nd: YAG Lasers can now treat people with even tanned and darker skin.

How lasers work?

Lasers work on the principle of selective absorption. Energy from laser beams is absorbed by the darkest pigment in the target area. Since the hair follicles have the highest concentration of melanin, they are darker than surrounding skin tissues. When lasers are made incident at the areas of face with unwanted hair, it penetrates through the skin uninterrupted and reaches the follicles. The melanin in follicles absorbs energy from lasers and heat up. This destroys the follicles and the surrounding hair growth cells, inhibiting any future growth. Multiple sessions may be needed to achieve desired hairlessness.
