Laser hair removal on the face: what I wish I’d known before


Laser hair removal on the face is an excellent treatment for those wishing to tackle anything from unwanted peach fuzz to wiry prickly patches. However, because the subject of facial hair is often considered taboo, it can be shrouded in mystery—which I discovered when I began my own treatment journey.

Have you ever found yourself, a million miles away, jutting your lower jaw out and gently massaging that top-secret chin hair you missed when tweezing? Well, it turns out you’re not alone—far from it in fact. Hirsutism, according to the NHS, is a condition in women that results in excessive growth of dark or coarse hair in a male-like pattern, in places like the face, chest and back. It’s linked to an excess of ‘male’ hormones called androgens—the most common cause of which is polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS).
