Getting rid of that hair on your upper lip can be quite frustrating. Waxing hurts, oh so badly. Shaving just tends to make the hair grow more quickly and leaves you with a 5 o’clock shadow at the end of the day. No woman wants to feel that stubble. If you want to look for ways that you can get rid of your hair on your upper lip, then consider lip laser hair removal for women.
Let’s consider some of the most common questions that women have about this procedure, so that you can see if it’s a good option for you.
Is Lip Laser Hair Removal Painful?
One of the biggest questions that people have is whether or not it hurts. Truthfully, it is not going to be completely pain free. It will not hurt too badly though. Generally, patients say that it feels almost like being popped by a rubber band. The laser beams kind of zap the hair at the follicle, leaving behind a slight sting. This should be all of the pain that you feel with it.
If you have a really low pain tolerance, you can also consider asking us to use a numbing cream on the area before we begin.
Should You Shave First?
Unlike waxing, you really can shave the hair before you have your treatment done. You don’t have to let the hair grow out first. Since the lasers do not depend on the hair pigmentation, but only use the pigmentation of the follicles, then you don’t have to have hair grown in order for it to be effective. They generally will ask you to shave first. You also don’t have to worry about it growing back thicker, because that really is just a myth.
How Long Do Results Last?
Laser hair removal has really been thought of as being a permanent solution to getting rid of unwanted hair, but it is really just semi-permanent. The results are pretty long lasting, but you will need to have regular visits to get the hair to be gone completely in the area. You also should consider the maintenance visits once or twice a year to keep up the results and destroy any new follicles.
Does it Cost a Fortune?
Finally, people want to know how much it is going to cost them. While laser hair removal can be pretty expensive, it is generally not that much for just your lip. The lip is such a small area, so it really can be quite affordable. It tends to cost more when you have larger areas done, such as your legs.
