Removal of Face Hair with Laser Treatment

Sep 13, 2008
In general, facial laser hair removal is entirely possible and can be perfectly safe. However, there are additional considerations to be aware of that are not relevant when you are looking simply for treatment of leg hair or considering laser therapy on non-sensitive parts of your body.

When looking at nose / face hair removal, you need to be aware of the following issues. Note that reputable suppliers of laser hair removal treatment will make certain that all of these issues are addressed before commencing treatment.

Face Laser Considerations
1) Your eyes must not be exposed to laser streams as they can damage the eyesight.
2) The skin on the face is vulnerable and special care must be taken, such as cooling the skin. You may want to take some time off work as there is likely to be some transient facial redness after treatment.
3) Hair color - the color of the hair is relevant for all laser therapy. Do be cognizant that lasers can effectively remove the dark face hair. But very pale, fine hair on the nose or face is probably not a good candidate for removal with lasers.
4) Nostril hair removal is feasible with lasers but is a specialist procedure and quite a lot of clinics do not offer this; you may need to travel to find a clinic that has the correct equipment to successfully and safely offer you nostril hair reduction by laser.

Safe Laser Hair Reduction on the Nose Surface
Most reputable beauticians and clinics will not perform laser therapy on the area of the face immediately below the eyebrow. However, all other surfaces of the face are eligible for laser hair removal treatment, including the chin, above the upper lip, cheeks, surface of the nose, forehead and even the area between the eyebrows.

Safety equipment that shields the eyes from the laser streams is crucial, and the actual facial areas that a clinic will be able to treat may be dictated by their equipment and the physical structure of their safety goggles.

Laser Hair Reduction on the Nose Surface

Women often find that face hair worsens with age. The "vellus" hairs on the face that in young women are virtually invisible may be replaced, as we advance in years, with darker and thicker hairs on the nose and on other parts of the face. The good news is that unwanted dark-colored hair on the surface of the nose can be treated successfully with lasers.

Nasal Hair / Nostril Hair Removal

If you have unwanted nostril hair, beware because the mucosal lining inside the nose is highly sensitive. For this reason many clinics shy away from offering laser hair removal treatment for nasal hair. They may even try to persuade you to opt for electrolysis to deal with your nostril hair, which can be extremely painful, or tell you that laser therapy is impossible for nasal hair. This is not completely true.

While putting a laser tool right inside the nose is not advisable, laser streams can be applied to the surface of the nose, yet penetrate deeply enough to effect excellent hair reduction inside the nose!

Pick out your Clinic with Care!

Safety must be the first consideration, so you should always make certain that you are dealing with a reputable clinic that has all of the necessary safety measures in place for performing laser nose hair reduction and other areas of the face.

As we have seen, facial laser hair removal requires careful, specialist treatment and in some cases very specific, highly specialized equipment. So it is quite likely that you will have to travel to a number of clinics before you find the one that offers precisely what you require.

However, if you are willing to do your research carefully, and to travel if necessary, you will find that there are clinics available that have the expertise and equipment to perform all manner of facial laser hair removal.
