Face laser hair removal for women: how does it work?A large majority of women are affected by facial hair on the upper lip, chin and cheeks. Even the presence of a small amount of hair on these areas can become a big complex. Many women are therefore looking for a solution to get rid of these unsightly hairs for good. Laser hair removal tackles the root of the hair , which will allow each hair bulb to be permanently removed in its entirety.
This method has become the most effective solution to regain clear skin on a long-term basis.
Advantages, price of a laser session and how it takes place: your Epilia laser centre in Geneva tells you all about permanent facial hair removal for women.
What are the advantages of permanent facial hair removal?For women, the impression of having a beard or moustache can quickly become very embarrassing and lead to complexes. Removing hair from the face may become necessary, but finding the right method is far from easy. Using a razor to shave this area is not an option because of the risk of ending up with darker and thicker hair regrowth. An electric depilator or depilatory cream can lead to irritation, redness, ingrown hairs or even wounds, waxing is painful, while hair discolouration reduces the problem without completely removing the complexes.
Nowadays, permanent hair removal by laser is the only method really effective for all women who want to get rid of their facial hair permanently; it allows them to regain a soft and clear skin.
It is a proven solution that allows women to save precious time in their daily routine. No more time devoted, sometimes every day, to get rid of unsightly hairs on their face. Laser hair removal makes it possible to regain real comfort on a daily basis and more self-confidence in all circumstances.
Before starting facial laser treatment, it is necessary to make an initial free appointment at your Epilia laser centre in Geneva. This consultation will allow us to make a personalised assessment based on your hair and phototype. It is also an opportunity to answer all your questions and to give you all the details of the personalised laser protocol.
Please note that the skin should not be exposed to the sun during the month preceding the session. Also make sure not to use tweezers, hair lightening cream or wax for 15 days before the session. It is also important to remember that you should never shave your face.
On the D-day, you will be received by a laser assistant who will take care of you in the treatment room. She will provide you with protective glasses that you will need to wear for the entire duration of the laser session. Once you are comfortably settled and well equipped, our practitioner will be able to start the treatment and begin scanning the areas from which you want to remove hair with the laser. Immediately after the laser session, your Epilia laser centre assistant will apply a moisturising cream on the treated zone. You will need to continue moisturising your skin at home for the 3 days following your treatment.
Last advice: we recommend a regular skin exfoliation in the weeks following your treatment to facilitate the ejection of the hair follicles.
Depending on the sensitivity of each person, what is felt during facial laser hair removal sessions can vary. Unpleasant sensations, sometimes compared to elastic bands that snap on the skin, can be experienced. But do not worry: scanning areas of the face with the laser is quite fast. For your comfort, you should know that your Epilia laser centre in Geneva is also equipped with a device that cools the skin with a pulsating cold air jet. This will help you support possible pain and make your laser hair removal as comfortable as possible.
Women's facial hair can be present on several zones such as the upper lip (moustache), chin or cheeks. Your Epilia laser centre offers different rates for each of these areas. They vary if you wish to treat several fac areas at the same time.
• The upper lip costs 50 CHF for one session • The chin costs 55 CHF for one session • The contour of the face costs 160 CHF for one session • The full face (without the neck) costs 195 CHF for one session
