Facial Hair Removal

What Is Facial Hair Removal?

Facial hair removal eliminates the need to shave, tweeze, wax, and pluck on a regular basis. Because a laser treatment destroys follicles, unwanted hair disappears permanently. At Ethos Spa, we use both Alexandrite and YAG lasers, which provide permanent and painless results. We use a 755-nm wavelength for the Alexandrite method, which is perfect for people with lighter complexions with a success rate around 79 percent. For darker skin, we use 1064-nm ND: YAG wavelength on all skin types. The benefit of these laser procedures is that they hone in on dark, coarse hairs without affecting the surrounding tissue.

Not only is laser hair removal fast, taking just a fraction of a second to treat multiple hairs simultaneously, it is also perfect for smaller areas. Ultimately, this procedure is fast, accurate, and predictable. Most clients achieve permanent hair loss after just three to seven treatments.

Who Is a Candidate?

Men and women with fair complexions and dark hair make ideal candidates for laser facial hair removal. The reason is that this laser treatment targets melanin in hair follicles. Thanks to technological advances, this procedure also works for people with darker skin tones, as well as those with blond, gray, and red hair, just not to the same caliber of success.

There are some exceptions as to who should have this procedure done. For example, people interested in removing peach fuzz from the upper lip would probably not get the wanted results since the laser cannot pick up light pigments. Also, laser facial hair removal is not for anyone with tanned skin, which would cause burning or scarring. Even self-tanning lotions and sprays discount someone as a viable candidate. If someone gives up tanning or self-tan products for a specified period, then this procedure can help.

What to expect?

You will first go through a consultation with one of our medical experts to confirm that you are a good candidate and to determine the appropriate wavelength. Customizing the treatment ensures optimal results. Depending on the area involved and the amount of hair, the laser facial hair removal treatment can take anywhere from 10 to 120 minutes. Regardless, there is no downtime, meaning you can return to your normal activities immediately following the procedure.

Some people get the wanted results with just one treatment, but when needing additional sessions for the face, we space these out about every four weeks. After having a laser treatment performed, you may experience slight redness, which goes away quickly. In little time, you will notice a vast improvement, ending up with skin that looks and feels smooth.
