Many women feel that the upper lip is one of the worst places to have unwanted hair. Unwanted facial hair can lead to feelings of anxiety or self-consciousness and is not something we at City Hair Removal want anyone to be suffering from.

The problem with mainstream hair removal methods is they can often make things worse or at least not much better. Bleaching if the hair is thick only leaves you with a blond hair, shaving makes the hair thicker and stronger and ofttimes, more visible. There is also the problem of ingrowing hairs resulting in unsightly spots and cysts. 

Waxing and plucking can be effective in the short term however hair can grow back darker, and in grown hairs are a possibility and not to forget the very red upper lip after each treatment. One must also consider the time and money needed to maintain upkeep on these treatments.

Needless to say none of these options are likely to leave you feeling like you have found a permanent solution and it is not the most fun thing to have to worry about on a regular basis.

Laser Hair Removal is a revolutionary hair removal solution, especially for the facial area. With upper lip laser hair removal you can achieve a totally hair free upper lip with only 6-8 treatments. Treatments on the facial area are spaced out with 4 week gaps between treatments.

This 4 week gap between laser hair removal treatments allows time for the hair growth cycle to resume. Hair growth is needed in order to give the laser a target for attack during each treatment. You may or may not see the hair or a percentage of hair grow back during the break between treatments. You are allowed to shave or bleach between treatments if you start feeling self-conscious but no waxing, epilating or plucking is allowed as the root of the hair needs to remain in tact for the laser to attack on your next treatment.

You may experience some redness immediately following your treatment but it doesn’t last long and will certainly be gone after a few hours. It is worth planning ahead though and having your hair removal appointments after work so you can go home and relax afterwards.

Upper lip Laser Hair Removal works particularly well for women that suffer from polycystic ovaries. As having polycystic ovaries generates coarser and darker hair growth, the hair is even more responsive to the treatment. If you hair is finer or lighter don’t worry: laser hair removal will still work for you, and the practitioner will ensure that the right laser and settings are being used for you to get the most effective results.

The number of treatments needed to achieve permanent hair removal can vary depending on the thickness and colour of the hair.

Other equally popular treatments to the upper lip laser hair removal are the under arm and bikini line. Imagine never having to shave for a night out or summer weather again, let alone go to the beach on impulse! The amount of time and money saved on these simple routines is huge. Until you take note you may not realise how much those normal hair removal routines are costing you. Once you have experienced a few treatments of laser hair removal you will see the amount of time and energy you gain. As well as of course a feeling of comfort in your own skin.
