Unwanted facial hair is a major concern for women of all ages and the idea of never having to wax, pluck, shave, thread, or bleach ever again is extremely enticing. This has caused many women to seek laser hair removal in the hope of saying goodbye to their unwanted hair.
However many of these women report that it is not so much that laser did not get rid of their facial hair, but it made it much worse in lots of cases. So what is going on?
According to Therese Moylan, owner of Therese Moylan Skincare Centre, 33 Woodquay, Galway, laser is fine to reduce dark, coarse, body hair but definitely not for the face. “Over the past two years dozens of women are showing up at my skincare centre seeking permanent removal of unwanted facial hair that they feel was made worse by laser hair removal performed elsewhere,” she said.
