How to remove hair from the beard with a laser?Some men like to keep their skin clean, closely shaved and hairless, while others like to have an even, perfectly shaped beard.
Beards are there to embellish and are often seen as a reflection of the personality of the men who wear them. Short hair, long hair, 3-day beard or well-shaped beard: the possibilities are numerous, but all require to take care of them almost on a daily basis.
To save time and gain comfort in their everyday life, many men come to our Epilia laser centre in Geneva to have the hair of their beards permanently removed or well-cut. Advantages, prices, the way a session takes place: we tell you everything about beard laser hair removal.
Beard laser hair removal: is it really advantageous?Permanent laser hair removal is today the most efficient method on the market and the one that guarantees you the longest-lasting results. Unlike hair removal with pulsed light, the laser used for permanent hair removal is more powerful. It will attack the hair pigment to destroy each hair follicle at the root. The results are impressive from the very first session onwards.
In short, it is an effective method, and, above all, one that brings real comfort in daily life. Once the laser treatment has been carried out, the beard remains clean with well-defined contours. Say goodbye to the irritation caused by shaving, painful hair removal methods and too regular appointments at a beauty centre or barber. With daily shaving or regular depilation, the male skin in this area is often irritated with ingrown hairs, redness or pimples.
Laser hair removal gets rid of imperfections and leaves the skin softer, more supple and more homogeneous. Permanent laser hair removal will also allow you to save precious time on a daily basis. You will no longer have to worry about the appearance of your beard every day. You will keep your trimmer but just to cut to length the hairs that you have decided to keep.
Before starting your treatment, we invite you to make your first free appointment at your Epilia laser centre. This first consultation is mandatory in order to familiarise yourself with the laser protocol, to meet the team that will be taking care of you, and to obtain a personalised assessment. Following this, you will get an idea of the number of sessions necessary to remove hair from your beard. This can vary according to your phototype (skin type) and hair type, but also to your age.
Before your first laser session:
• Do not expose your skin to the sun in the weeks before the treatment. It must not be tanned. • Shave your face the evening before the treatment. Your hair should neither be too short, or too long (1 to 2 mm). • Shave your face the evening before the treatment. Your hair should neither be too short, or too long (1 to 2 mm).
On the day of your laser session:
You will be received by a laser assistant who will take care of you in the treatment room and provide you with protective glasses to wear during the whole laser session. After a few checks, our practitioner will scan the desired areas with the laser for a few minutes. The treatment is quite fast.
After the laser session:
• Moisturize your skin immediately after the session and for 3 days after the laser treatment to soothe the skin and avoid redness. • Avoid exposing your skin to the sun for the week following the laser treatment. • Exfoliate your skin regularly for a few weeks to remove each hair bulb.
