Everybody has some facial hair, including women. When it comes to facial hair, the main difference between men and women is that hair on a woman’s face typically is so fine that it’s barely visible.
Facial hair in women has a few causes, including genetics, higher levels of testosterone, or hirsutism, which results in the growth of course, dark hair in women. Hirsutism affects around 5%-10% of women.
If you’re a woman dealing with unwanted facial hair, Dr Hera Tabassum she is the best dermatologist in Roorkee can help you. We offer laser treatment for a variety of cosmetic purposes, including hair removal.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal consists of directing a concentrated beam of light at a selected area of skin. The light is absorbed in the hair follicles of the skin, which slows and prevents hair growth. While not permanent, the effects can last for a long time, months or even years.
Not all of your hair is at the same stage of the growth cycle, so full treatment may take up to six visits 1-2 months apart.
Before we start laser hair removal, we provide you with goggles to protect your eyes from the light. Also, a topical anesthetic may be used to alleviate any discomfort during the procedure.
The hand-held laser device is used alongside a cooling gel to protect the skin. The treatment is commonly described as feeling like a warm pinprick, with mild discomfort.
Small areas may only take a few minutes, with larger areas taking as long as an hour. Redness and swelling afterward are typical for the first few hours, and hair often sheds over the course of days or weeks.
Laser hair removal is effective and long-lasting, but it’s not the only method at your disposal to remove unwanted facial hair.
What to Expect During Laser Facial Hair Removal
Laser facial hair removal technique is a hassle-free and convenient method of hair removal. It reduces hair growth and shows effective hair reduction if done correctly. Laser facial hair removal is performed using a pulsating beam of light that passes through the skin layers and targets the hair follicle. The heat of the light beam then destroys the hair follicles and makes the hair weak which then falls out. The damaged hair follicle loses its ability to produce any further hair for a long time and sometimes it results in permanent hair reduction.
Here is what you can expect at your session for laser facial hair removal,
The technician will examine the facial hair to be removed and trim it if necessary to maintain a length of few millimetres.
You will be asked to cover your eyes with a protective eye gear throughout the procedure
The technician will apply a special gel on the skin surface that helps to penetrate the laser beam into the deeper skin layers to target the hair follicle.
The technician will adjust the laser instrument as per the location of hair, thickness, and also the colour of hair & skin.
Before starting the actual laser facial hair removal treatment the technician will try one pulsating beam to check if any untoward side effect occurs. If it is works fine, facial hair removal with laser beam will be continued.
Some local anaesthetic may be applied to reduce the discomfort during process. However, this may not be needed with the new technology RF ICE CUBE 2.0 offered by Dr Hera’s Skin & Hair Clinic as it has a unique in-built cooling system in place which is based on water cold sapphire.
Benefits of Laser Facial Hair Removal

A large spot size helps in deep penetration resulting in shorter treatment time / sitting with effective facial hair removal.
Laser Facial Hair Removal for Men
Laser Hair removal in men is not as common as in women because most men do not want to get rid of all the facial hair. However, hair removal in specific facial area gives more defined look on moustache and beard. Considering the busy lifestyle of working men and to save time invested in shaving daily, laser facial hair removal for men seems like a feasible option. Laser facial hair removal also reduces the risk of irritation and folliculitis that occurs due to repetitive shaving.
Laser Facial Hair Removal for Women
Laser facial hair removal for women is the most feasible and time saving option. It reduces the hassle of frequent threading, waxing or plucking unwanted hair on upper lip or chin. The conventional methods such as plucking stimulate the hair root to go into growing phase and results in thicker hair growth. On the other hand, laser facial hair removal in women can prevent hair growth after about 4 to 6 treatment sessions.
