Laser hair removal on the face looks like it was especially dedicated to women who were born with excess hair. For those who have already looked for alternatives that are not long-lasting, harm the skin and require a monthly fee, then these reasons for permanent depilation on the face will win your heart. If you are going to be happier with your face without hair, and think it will have a positive impact on your self-esteem, then this article is just for you.
For both women and men, the treatment solves everything from allergies on the face to folliculitis resulting from razor blades or hot wax. Not to mention that when it comes to the face, our skin is super sensitive and avoiding constant friction is always the best recommendation.
For aesthetic reasons or not, depilation on the female face is already one of the treatments with the greatest impact on the famous before and after.
One thing is for sure: deciding to wax your face is personal. For women who have always had the habit of shaving their faces with hot razors or wax, not having to use these methods anymore and having a hairless face would be a real relief. And for those who have excess and thicker hair, laser hair removal is even more effective.
The more pigmented and the greater the contrast between the hair color and the skin color of the face, the more efficient the laser.
This is because the laser hair removal mechanism is due to the attraction of melanin present in the hair. The energy beam reaches the hair and is conducted to its root, where the structures responsible for making the hair grow are destroyed.
Most IPL laser hair removal users start to see a reduction of hair in just 2-3 treatments using our handset, with complete results after 9 treatments. However, results can vary from person to person. Throughout the sessions, those little hairs that start to grow more spread will, until the end of the treatment, also be removed by the root.
With sessions that take less than 30 minutes, laser hair removal on the female face has an impressive before and after.
Laser hair removal on the upper lip, for example, takes an average of 15 minutes or less. The skin is smoother and any darkening caused by the constant use of blades or waxes is softened.
In terms of safety, it is important to remember that the permanent laser hair removal treatment has undergone many changes to improve technology.
Melanin, in addition to giving the color of our hair, is also responsible for the color of our skin.
For the first devices, the energy beam fired still expanded a lot over the skin and had a high attraction for melanin, so regulation by a professional was fundamental. Today, regulation is still fundamental and the equipment must be safe and have a high quality for users. There have been a number of studies around the world which prove the safety and effectiveness of IPL for hair removal. Due to this fact, it has become an extremely popular safe and effective method of hair removal.
The treatment is highly efficient and can be performed on any skin tone, including the face.
One of the many advantages of our Handset over other types of laser is that it is pain-free. Most customers explain the feeling as a warm sensation on the skin.
Imagine that the face is also one of the most exposed areas of our body and care before and after laser hair removal must be redoubled!
In addition to strictly following the guidelines of the specialized professional or of the brand of the IPL Handset, there are some precautions with laser hair removal on the face that we consider essential.
Exposure to the sun stimulates some processes in our body to protect our skin, one of which is the increase in melanin.
Excess exposure to the sun causes blemishes due to an imbalance in melanin production, loss of radiance and skin tone. Therefore, no sun, at least 15 days before and 7 days after treatment.
HYDRATION BEFORE LASER DEPILATION
We all know that it is essential that any type of skin receives the necessary hydration to maintain good texture and skin protection. But when it comes to laser hair removal on the face, hydration should be taken seriously.
If the skin is more dry, the chances of causing aggression and leaving spots from the healing process are greater. And we are not even talking about burns, the process of removing hair is a kind of aggression to the body, and redness, burning and all irritation is potentialized when the skin is fragile.
Important tip: Always look for a Dermatologist to identify your skin type and which moisturizer is best for you.
Unlike wax, which requires the hair to grow longer to have grip when pulling, with laser hair removal you have to shave with a blade about 1 day before or even on the same day.
We have already reinforced that exposing yourself to the sun does not contribute to the quality of the treatment, more specifically, to a result without stains. So, if the goal is to be permanently free of hair and without risk to the face, write it down:
Use sunscreen in areas where the laser has been used.
The skin can already be more sensitized, imagine with the sun?
During the entire period of treatment with laser hair removal, hair cannot be removed from the root. It is recommended that you use a blade for those hairs that are still growing and that, during the treatment, need to be reached by the laser.
The hair growth phases must be respected, hence the need to complete all sessions.
