What to Know About Full Face Laser Hair Removal

For many women, one of the most frustrating and embarrassing cosmetic concerns is the presence of unwanted hair on parts of the body, and this is especially true for hair on the face. While there are numerous ways that women can get rid of hair on the face, the reality is that these options can be time-consuming, painful, and bothersome to the skin (shaving, waxing, and tweezing). Rather than remembering too late that you forgot to take care of unsightly hair on your face, why not eliminate this cosmetic issue completely? With full face laser hair removal from Sanctuary Medical Aesthetic Center, you can achieve soft, smooth, and hair-free skin on your face. No longer will you find yourself worrying whether others can see your unsightly hair; instead, you can smile knowing that you are putting your best face forward! In this blog, we will examine laser hair removal for the face to help you better understand how this treatment can help you.



What Is Full Face Laser Hair Removal?

The use of laser energy to help correct cosmetic concerns is one of the most popular and effective treatments available. One of the reasons for its continued popularity is the ease and safety of laser treatments. Laser treatments, such as laser hair removal, are non-surgical treatments that effectively accomplish numerous aesthetic goals. Additionally, it only takes looking at full facial laser hair removal before and after photos to see just how transformative these treatments can be. 


Laser treatments direct light energy to heat various aspects of the skin. Depending on the usage of the laser energy, the appearance of skin blemishes can be minimized, collagen production can be stimulated to strengthen the skin’s health, and hair follicles can be destroyed. For laser hair removal, the light energy damages the hair follicles, which keeps them from growing hair. 


While laser hair removal can effectively get rid of hair on various parts of your body (including your chest, back, bikini, and legs), many women struggle with hair on their upper lip, chin, and sideburns. As the name suggests, full face laser hair removal treats the entire face to keep it free of any unwanted hair, which can improve your comfort and confidence in the way you look. 


How Is Full Face Laser Hair Removal Performed?

Full face laser hair removal is a relatively simple and quick procedure that can be completed in about 60 minutes. While not necessary for every patient, many men and women choose to have a topical anesthetic gel applied before their hair removal treatment. Most patients report a warm sensation, though they do not report feeling any pain during the treatment. After the anesthetic gel is applied, your skin specialist will direct the handheld laser device over the target areas of your face. The laser energy will destroy the pigment to ensure that no hair will grow in the future.


It is important to understand that laser hair removal is not a one-and-done treatment. Instead, you may require up to six treatment sessions to achieve desired results. The reason for this is that the laser energy is not able to destroy all of the follicles at one time since your skin has so many follicles. For many patients, they can look forward to up to 80 percent of their hair being permanently removed; however, to maintain the results that you desire, it is important to undergo maintenance treatments regularly.



Other Important Information About Full Face Laser Hair Removal

In addition to clearer and smoother skin, one of the best aspects of laser hair removal is that there is little to no downtime associated with the treatment. Additionally, the recovery is relatively simple, when compared to many other cosmetic skin treatments. You will likely experience some redness and bumps on your skin during the days following your treatment. It is important that you refrain from direct sunlight and applying makeup and other skin creams without your skin care expert’s approval. It is common for patients to notice dead hairs shedding from their skin over the next several weeks. This is normal and completely expected. Once you have undergone the required number of treatments, you can look forward to a more natural and attractive aesthetic.
