Hair Keeps Growing On Your Upper Lip? Use Laser Hair Removal To Help

If the hair on your upper lip is growing quickly and you are finding it hard to keep up with, laser hair removal can help. Below is information on how this works, as well as the benefits this offers you.

Laser Hair Removal

Do not pluck the hair on your upper lip or wax it a few weeks before you have this treatment. Talk with the provider you choose to do this, and they can tell you how long this is. This is because the laser removes hair starting at the roots. If you pluck or use wax this temporarily removes these roots.

Before the treatment, the doctor will trim the hair close to your skin, if needed. They then apply a numbing medication to your upper lip so you will not feel pain during the treatment. The doctor adjusts the laser at the right level which will depend on how thick the hair is and the color of the hair. Your skin color also makes a difference in what they use. 

The doctor will put eye protection on you so your eyes will not be damaged by the laser. They apply a cooling gel to the skin or use a cooling device to help the laser penetrate your skin better. The doctor applies the laser to the skin which emits pulses of light. This light goes deep enough in the skin to kill the hair roots. After the treatment, the doctor may apply an ice pack or a lotion or cream to the area to help with any discomfort you may have after the treatment. You will need to get more than one treatment in many cases. This is because the laser may not remove all hair roots with one treatment. 

Laser Hair Removal Benefits

There are many benefits of laser hair removal. You will not have to worry about constantly removing the hair from your upper lip. You also may cut yourself if you shave the hair and a laser will not cause any damage to the surrounding skin. 

Laser hair removal is much faster than shaving as it only takes seconds for the laser to kill hair follicles and will kill many of them during the treatment. Laser hair removal will also save you a lot of time. 

Your provider can give you much more information about the laser hair removal treatment so you will know what to expect.
