Question: Is there a downside to removal of facial hair with laser treatment? Such as worse regrowth?

Asked by charlottew

i was persuaded to have a tiny blond moustache waxed and regret it, as it grew back darker. It needs treatment now. Is there a similar problem with laser removal? Can laser harm the skin? Will the regrowth be worse?

Hi,

Laser will not make the hair growth darker or worse but you do need to remember it is only semi permanent... so any hormone changes due to sickness/pregnancy etc may cause hair to grow again in the area.

Another option depending on the amount of growth could be epilation which is cheaper but very effective. Contact the institute of electrolysis for a therapist in your area.

I hope this helps

I AM 44 YES OLD WITH DARK HAIR. FOLLOWING 5 IPL TREATMENTS, THE HAIR ON MY CHIN IS REDUCED AND THE GROWTH IS SLOWER. I AM VERY HAPPY WITH IT FOR THE TIME BEING.

Laser or IPL is very successful for hair reduction. It will only work on mid brown or darker hair though so I am not sure whether your hairs would be suitable. In the wrong hands laser can cause burns as it is a heat process, however if you find a care quality commission registered clinic and ensure that your treatment is carried out by a Doctor or Nurse it is perfectally safe. There is no evidence that laser hair removal will cause regrowth at all as it is a permanent treatment. Check out our website under EpiLight and look at the frequently asjed questions which will give you further information.
