When we hear “facial hair” we often think about beard. Today’s lifestyle and hormonal changes affect many women causing their body to grow facial hair. It’s publically accepted for women to be “hairless”. Facial hair becomes tabu and this aesthetic problem hides behind the shade of shame.
Today we explain why women have facial hair and how to remove it permanently in a safe way.
Why women would have excess facial hair?
It’s completely normal to have baby hair over your face. It’s also called fine hair. Sometimes women develop certain conditions that make their bodies produce thicker facial hair. Some of them are:
- Polycystic ovarian syndrome;
- Adrenal gland disorders;
- Medication intake such as minoxidil, testosterone, steroids and more.
- Cushing syndrome.
How to remove facial hair?
There are three ways you can deal with excess facial hair:
- Laser Hair Removal.
The safest and most effective way is using Laser hair removal. Shaving makes hair thicker and doesn’t slow down hair growth. In the contrary: shaving removes only the hair over the facial surface. Anything below remains intact.
Waxing is also a solution but it doesn’t guarantee permanent removal and it’s also very painful. In some countries facial waxing is even forbidden.
Laser hair removal uses heat to destroy melanin and penetrate deeply into the roots of hair. With every session hair becomes thinner, hair growth slows down and in time facial hair falls. In the end you have hair free face.
Types of Laser Hair Removal Machines
Depending on the type of skin and facial hair there are different laser machines and programs. Not all hair and skin color is equal so we treat them with different types of laser light.
- CynoSure Elite – FDA approved laser machine with programs for light skin and dark skin. This machine is suitable for thick hair.
- Revlite Q-switch – FDA approved laser machine for fine hair removal.
How to remove different types of facial hair?
No matter the cause of your condition, laser hair removal successfully destroys melanin and thus stops hair growth. This is the most effective way to boost your confidence and start feeling free of stigma. Let’s see how our doctors use CynoSure to remove facial hair:
For light skin we use Alexandrite laser. It send shorter wavelengths and it’s considered safe for light skin. The hair follicle absorbs the laser light. This causes destruction and hair stops growing.
For dark skin and hair we use Nd:YAG laser. Its laser wavelength is longer so it penetrates more deeply into the skin. Since it’s longer the pulse is stronger. It works the same way but it’s more effective for dark skins and thicker hair.
For fine hair we use Q-switch. Sometimes women have fine hair over their face which is not caused by a medical condition. It’s just an aesthetic issue. Q-switch doesn’t destroy melanin but it lights the hair so it becomes invisible. It’s completely non-invasive and in time hair falls. This “invisible mode” lasts for a month or two.
Important: The number of sessions is individual. Before evaluating the length of the treatment you should come at the clinic for a FREE consultation. Our doctors will give you full information about your condition and you will discuss your goals for appropriate treatment scheme.
