Facial Hair Removal For Women

There are many women who suffer from undesired facial hair causing undue stress, embarrassment and low self-esteem. As a consequence, many women hide their facial hair from their families and doctors to save themselves from further upset. There can be a combination of factors which lead to excessive hair growth in places such as the upper lip, the chin, the cheeks and the neck. Suffering with facial hair can have a huge impact on a woman’s quality of life and most importantly her confidence. So this article is designed to bring some hope for those looking for a permanent, hair-free solution.

What causes facial hair on women?

There are a number of causes of excessive hair growth, including:

  • Genetics
  • Age e.g. menopause
  • Weight Gain
  • Hormones e.g. Hirsutism, PCOS (Polycystic Ovary Syndrome)
  • Medication
  • Race

How do women manage and cope with facial hair?

There are an abundance of treatments that can temporarily remove facial hair whether it is the upper lip, the chin or the cheeks being treated. For example, many women tackle these issues by using wax, hair removal creams or by having a threading session. On top of these treatments, the beauty regime consists of shaving and trimming which takes up a considerable amount of time. Not only is facial hair a cosmetic nuisance, but it burns a hole in your purse too. So fortunately, there is a long term solution available that can help reduce the amount of facial hair significantly and help save time and money in the long run – and it’s no where near as expensive or painful as laser! SmoothSkin offer two PL (intense pulsed light) devices to use in the comfort of your home, both offering permanent hair reduction.

SmoothSkin devices are not recommended for use on red, white or very light (blonde) hair and cannot be used to treat very dark skin. Always read the manual in full before commencing treatments, and don’t forget to do a patch test to check your skin’s suitability before completing a full treatment.

How does IPL work?

Intense pulsed light is designed to help break the cycle of hair growth.

The light energy is transferred through the skin’s surface and is absorbed by the melanin present in the hair shaft.
The absorbed light energy is converted to heat energy (below the surface of the skin), which disables the hair follicle preventing further growth.
Treated hairs naturally fall out over the course of a few days to 1-2 weeks.

IPL is similar to laser hair removal, but not quite the same technology.

  • Laser uses a single spectrum of concentrated light in one single colour & wavelength.
  • IPL uses a much broader spectrum of light in various colours & wavelengths.

Both methods target the melanin in the hair follicle, and  can provide long-lasting results. Because laser treatment focuses light into the follicle and not the skin, it is often recommended for darker skin tones which may not be suited to IPL treatment.

Treating the face using IPL

SmoothSkin devices are designed, tested and FDA cleared to treat the body and face safely and effectively.

SmoothSkin Gold features ‘Detect and Set’ technology,  which means you do not have to worry about choosing skin tone settings as the device automatically reads it for you. It is very simple and you can see your skin tone setting indicated by the power bars either side of the treatment window. SmoothSkin Bare is a safe solution to fight the fuzz across the body and face using its one super simple speedy setting. Both devices also offers dual treatment Modes, one of which is ‘Stamp Mode’ and this treatment method is recommended for small delicate areas, such as the upper lip and the chin.

Again though, before your first treatment on each new body area, we always recommend you complete a quick patch test to make sure your skin doesn’t react to treatment.
