Laser Hair Removal (Face)

More often than not, we tend to find ourselves in a rather hairy situation, which can lead to hours and hours of hair removal. This is time and money that could be better spent elsewhere, yet we are forever shaving, plucking and waxing in an attempt to achieve silky smooth, hairless skin. Sure enough, we manage, but in certain situations, body hair can be particularly embarrassing, especially when it comes to facial hair.

Most men are perfectly happy shaving and maintaining their stubble, yet when women suffer with slight facial hair, shaving would only worsen the situation. Too many ladies now have to find time to schedule bleaching or waxing to take care of unsightly facial hair, whether over the upper lip, around the chin and neck, and of course the sideburns. Heaven forbid you should miss your appointment or forget to attend and then catch a glimpse of your moustache showing through in public!

Why not seek a more permanent solution so that you no longer have to worry and you can focus on more important things? Laser hair removal offers safe and effective long-term hair reduction, and it’s not only for women! Of course there are men that prefer a hairless face and would rather cut out tedious shaving from their daily routine. Suitable for all skin and hair types, our experts use only the latest technology to gently eliminate unsightly facial hair.

Frequently asked questions

The cost of laser hair removal varies depending on the size of the treatment area, yet most facial procedures tend to start from around £35. With that said, you may require numerous sessions in order to completely eliminate the hair, so do take that into consideration. A full quote will be provided following your consultation at the NWA clinic.

We use the Lynton Laser here at North West Aesthetics. Through gentle, yet intense bursts of energy directly onto the hair follicles, they are permanently destroyed at the root to prevent regrowth. Although this is a relatively pain-free treatment, we can minimise discomfort further with pain relief where necessary.

You will notice immediate improvement and significant hair reduction after just one treatment, although multiple treatments are usually required in order to see the best results. Dark hair often sees better results than blonde hair, although all hair types are treatable.

As with price, timing is also affected by the size of the treatment area, although facial hair would take considerably less time to treat than other areas of the body perhaps would. In general, you should expect to spend at least 30 minutes at North West Aesthetics, with 15 minutes required for a consultation before treatment.

This varies from person to person, although we usually see the best results with 2-8 treatments, depending both on the patient and the area that is being treated. Sessions must also be 4-6 weeks apart; this allows your hair to grow back between treatments.

No downtime is required post-treatment, just be sure to follow our aftercare advice. Initially, it’s wise to avoid sun exposure and continue to maintain your sun protection with an SPF of at least 30. Also try to avoid abrasive skin cleansers and exfoliators until your skin has fully healed over the course of a few days.

In general, side effects tend to be very minimal, with most patients experiencing only slight swelling and redness for a few hours post-treatment. Should you have any concerns, don’t hesitate to get back in touch.

To determine your suitability for this type of treatment, we first ask that you attend a thorough consultation with one of our experts in order to assess your wants and needs, as well as your skin and hair. In general, almost anyone is suitable for facial laser hair removal. With that said, be sure to avoid plucking, waxing or electrolysis for at least 6 weeks before your first treatment. On the day of your treatment, we ask that you first shave and cleanse the treatment area thoroughly. You will have had to had a patch test at least 48 hours prior to treatment, too. You cannot be exposed to the sun or have fake tan 4 weeks before or during treatment sessions.

At North West Aesthetics, our friendly and attentive team prioritise your wants and needs, offering bespoke treatment plans that work specifically for you. We take the time to get to the bottom of your concerns via a thorough consultation, before then considering the best possible course of action. A high standard of treatment and care is imperative, which is why our staff are extensively trained and experienced in all aspects of advanced non-surgical aesthetics, led by renowned medical doctor, Dr David Taylor.
