Can Laser Hair Removal Treat Unwanted Facial Hair?

By: Andrea Ball, D.M.D.


Shaving is an easy way to remove excess hair, but it can be time-consuming and needs to be repeated frequently. This is why many people turn to laser hair removal as an alternative option in Indianapolis, IN. While laser hair removal is normally used for larger areas of the body, such as legs, arms, and back, can it also treat facial hair? The answer is yes.

Ball Dentistry proudly helps patients with hair almost anywhere on the face, including the upper lip and chin. Call now to meet with Dr. Andrea Ball and discover the advantages of laser hair removal for yourself.

Do you have excess facial hair?

Excess facial hair can be seen in both men and women, though women are more likely to feel self-conscious about this issue. It can result from genetics, hormonal changes, or certain medical conditions. While facial hair is natural and not harmful, some people may want to remove it for aesthetic reasons.

While shaving is the go-to way to manage facial hair, it only lasts for a short period and can result in irritation or ingrown hair. A professional treatment at Ball Dentistry, on the other hand, offers a long-term solution without side effects. The advanced laser technology targets excess hair and inhibits the ability to grow back, leaving individuals with smooth and virtually hair-free skin.

How does it work?

During laser hair removal, a concentrated beam of light is directed at the desired areas. The heat from the laser targets the follicles themselves, preventing them from producing new hair. Treatment can be performed on almost any part of the face, including the upper lip and chin, and takes only a few minutes to complete.

Depending on the thickness and color of the hair, multiple sessions may be needed to achieve optimal results. However, most patients experience a significant reduction in hair growth after just a few sessions. Plus, as the hair grows back thinner and lighter, it becomes easier to manage.
