Laser Hair Removal Face

Updated on July 21, 2009

If you are looking for laser hair removal face, you’ve come to the right place! Here are some thing you should know about laser hair removal for the face…

If you are woman, laser hair removal for the facial area, although it is expensive, is a very good alternative to having to wax the embarrassing excess hair. If you are a man, laser hair removal for the face will eliminate the need to shave. Furthermore, for both men and women, laser hair removal can get rid of hair in the eyebrows. Because the face is relatively small compared to the back and legs (whether you are looking to get rid of hair in the upper lip area, cheek/chin area, or eyebrows) laser hair treatments aren’t nearly as expensive as treatments for the back, chest, or legs.

Generally, laser hair removal is going to work best if you have light skin and dark hair. This doesn’t mean, however, that the light peach fuzz in women can’t be removed. It just means that you’re going to have to get the laser beamed on you multiple times.

The side effects are usually in the form of red inflammation, nothing serious. Think of laser hair removal as a very serious waxing.

If you are wondering exactly how much laser hair removal face cost will be, you’re going to have to find this out by seeking a laser hair removal center near you. Costs depends on a number of factors including the density of the hair, how much hair needs to be removed, and how much melanin the unwanted hair has. Some clinics charge by the time, others charge a flat fee for doing a specific body part, and other charge you for every pulse of the laser. Regardless, you can expect to pay around $1,000 to treat the facial area. It can be a lot less, however, if you only want to get rid of, say, your upper lip hair. This would bring the price down to about $500. You can expect the laser hair removal to last for multiple sessions, not just one.  

Because there are a number of clinics to choose from in your area (a sample search for laser hair removal for my middle sized city revealed 25 clinics) don’t settle for one. Shop around while focusing not only on the price, but on the quality of the clinic as well. You want someone who as an MD, preferably one that has been around for a while, who can show you decent before and after pictures, and who, most importantly, will guarantee the results for a decent amount of time.
