Tired of worrying if your friends will notice your stubble? Facial hair is terrible for women’s self esteem. But if you have facial hair, you are not alone—trust us! It’s estimated 50 million women suffer with it. Every single day we see women who spend hours tweezing chin and lip hairs and who are constantly worried someone will notice the stubble or a hair they’ve missed. Yes, we’ve heard it all. “I carry these travel razors in my purse.” “I tweeze in the rearview mirror.” Some have polycystic ovary disease or other hormonal imbalances but many have excess hair with no specific cause other than “genetics”.
After 11 years of doing aesthetic treatments, we can tell you it’s the women with facial hair who appreciate us more than any other patients. After 5 laser treatments, the dark hair is an average of 80% less—PERMANENTLY. The few hairs that remain are generally finer and grow more slowly. And here’s what they all say “The best part is my acne and ingrown hairs are gone! My skin is smooth again.” Laser hair removal is permanent but because facial hair is hormonally stimulated, most patients do touch up treatments 1-2 times per year. Trust our patients—it’s the best few hundred dollars you’ll spend.
Blond facial fuzz can also be embarrassing. Unfortunately laser doesn’t work on blond hair so there aren’t any permanent options but dermaplaning is a temporary solution that is gentler on the skin than waxing and offers some wonderful exfoliation as well. It’s one of our most popular treatments especially in the spring and summer when the sun comes out and the natural light shows every single hair. You won’t believe how soft and smooth your skin is after a this 45 minute relaxing, feel good treatment!
