The unfortunate truth is that many women out there are dealing with unwanted upper lip hair. If you are looking for a long-term and easy solution, we invite you to learn how you can target unwanted hair with upper lip laser hair removal.
The first thing that you may be wondering about is how laser hair removal works. Many people out there have the mistaken idea that the hair is burned off. Or they have some other idea in mind that comes from science fiction movies. The truth is that the laser is used to disable the hair follicles. When they are disabled, they are not able to grow new hair. This produces semi-permanent results for individuals who undergo a series of treatment sessions at our office.
The laser treatment sessions are very quick. The area above the lip can usually be treated in just a couple of minutes. It actually takes more time to get the laser in place than it does for the pulses of laser light to disable the hair follicles.
Another mistaken idea that people have about laser hair removal is that a person has to let their hair grow out in order to receive treatment. It is true that you cannot pluck or wax the hair. The follicles need to be in place in order for laser hair removal to be effective, though you can shave the hair. So in the weeks that lead up to your treatment and in the weeks in between laser hair removal sessions, you can shave that unwanted hair away.
Laser hair removal can be used on almost any part of the body. In addition to requesting the upper lip area to be treated, women often want other areas treated. Men also make great candidates for laser hair removal in various areas.
You may be wondering if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal treatments. The truth is that certain individuals get better results than others. Contact us today at Huntington Women’s Health and schedule a consultation in Huntington, NY to learn more.
