  • Managing unwanted hair growth on your upper lip and chin is a constant struggle. Especially if you are suffering from hormonal disturbances. Read on to know more about the best method of removing it safely and effectively.

Upper lip and chin hair are often more noticeable than unwanted hair on any other parts of the face or body. Most women desire to get rid of them, once and for a lifetime. Traditional methods, such as threading or waxing offer some relief but that does not last for more than a fortnight or so, depending on the individual. Thanks to laser technology and its advancement over the years the problem of unwanted upper lip and chin hair can be treated permanently.

How Are Lasers Used For Upper Lip and Chin Hair Removal?

Temporary hair removal methods can be taxing and inconvenient for removing upper lip and chin hair. Laser treatment stands out as the most effective method to enjoy hair-free skin permanently with a shorter treatment time and greater comfort than temporary fixes.

Laser hair removal targets the hair follicle and destroys it to prevent further hair growth. The process involves focusing laser beams of specific wavelengths on the targeted area such as the upper lip or chin. The laser gets absorbed by melanin (pigment) present in the skin and travels to the hair root where it destroys the stem cells responsible for growth and prevents it from producing hair.
