Having hair on your face is normal however, it does have an impact on how you look! When you remove unwanted hair on your face, you may notice that your skin looks brighter. Hence why, most people would opt to remove facial hair. Laser hair removal treatment is a popular option amongst both women and men. However, many people still have their doubts about it. This is mainly due to the cases we have heard of whereby clients have faced extreme discomfort post treatment. There can be many reasons why this happens. In this blog post, we are going to explain how laser hair removal works and the pros and cons of this treatment. Do not miss out on the FAQ section at the end of the article! Let’s dive deeper!


Why Do People Opt For Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal can be used to remove unwanted hair. Bikinis, lips, chins, elbow slits, and legs are commonly treated areas. Treatments for hair thinning on the face or along the lashes, on the other hand, are available. Hair colour is an important factor in laser removal success. It is critical that only the hair, not the skin, absorb light. Lasers do not harm the skin, but they have no effect on hair follicles. When skin and hair contrast, whether through dark skin or dark hair, the effects are enhanced.


What is Laser Hair Removal?

Thanks to medical advancements, we have laser technology, which has saved so many lives, across the various medical procedures! Thanks to laser technology, we no longer need to depend on surgical stitches for surgeries.

But how good is laser for hair removal?

Clinical studies have shown that laser treatments have been proven to effectively stop the treated hair follicles from forming new hair. Once the concentrated beam goes over the treated area, the hair follicle dies and no new hair will form.

The process of laser hair removal treatment is essentially a shining laser beam that will be pointed into the hair follicle, where the pigment, or melanin, in the hair absorbs it. So if you have dark skin, this laser treatment will be most effective for you! The follicle is killed permanently when light is converted to heat when it is absorbed by the pigment.


Is Laser Hair Removal Safe for the Face?

Yes, it is safe to use laser hair removal. Minor effects were mentioned by some patients. You can have slight redness for a few hours following treatment, depending on your skin type. Patients may occasionally have brief burning, scalping, or skin changes, but these are rare occurrences, and your laser expert will recommend the best laser treatment and provide you recommendations for avoiding side effects. The treatments can be tailored to the patient's unique skin and hair types.


The Risks That Comes Along With Laser Hair Removal Treatment

Small, hot lasers are used in laser hair removal to remove hair. Immediately following the treatment, the laser may have brief negative effects. The most frequent side effects include skin irritability and changes in pigmentation.

1.Redness or skin irritability

This is a common risk with any laser treatment. Due to the high heat, it is normal for anyone’s skin to experience slight redness. This redness should go away in 24 hours. However, if you have sensitive skin, this may take slightly longer. If you notice any abnormalities, contact the clinic immediately.

2.Change in pigmentation

After receiving laser treatment, you may notice that your skin is a little bit lighter or darker. If you have light skin, you are more likely to experience darker spots after laser facial hair removal. On the other hand, people with dark skin might have lighter spots as a result of the treatment. Similar to skin irritation, these adjustments are temporary and often not cause for concern.

Do note that the risks are higher if you go to an untrained therapist. Always be sure to only opt for treatments that use FDA approved devices.

What are the Pros of Perfect Laser Clinics’ A3 Hair Removal Treatment

As mentioned above, lasers have shown to be an effective method of hair removal. Most people are tired of shaving and spending several hours in the toilet waxing. At home laser hair removal devices can help but there is the risk of faulty equipment and not reaching certain areas of your body. The best way to stop hair growth is by opting for laser treatments.

Here are some of the benefits of our A3 Laser Hair Removal:

1.Permanent hair reduction

A3 Laser Hair Removal will go deep into the hair follicles by following the melanin, unlike conventional hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking. The blood capillaries are then made smaller by the laser energy. Due to the intensity of this treatment, it will eventually stop the flow of nutrients to the hair follicles. This then leads to no new hair growth!

2.No more ingrown hairs

In our treatment, the laser device will use the 808nm wavelength, which is designed to constrict the capillaries that carry nourishment to the hair follicles. In return, this will stop hair growth. The ingrown hairs will then appear on the skin's surface and be eliminated by laser device.

After multiple sessions, you will notice your hair thinning. This then results in a silky smooth skin texture because it is now and free of ingrown hairs and red bumps.

3.Smoothened skin

If you have been shaving for a long time you will know that shaving can encourage the formation of melanin and generate excessive friction on the skin. When done for a long time, this can result in extremely poor skin tone on the shaved body regions. Laser therapy can also help accelerate melanin synthesis.

4.Simple, trouble-free, and accessible

Our A3 treatment was designed in a way that it has to be simple and practical for our clients. No more razor burn, nicks, or cuts! Simply lie down to enjoy rapid and long-lasting hair removal.


The Cons of Laser Hair Removal Treatment

One of the cons of laser hair removal is that you may require maintenance treatments. This simply means, if you do see hair regrowth, you have to come in to do another session. For some people, genetics can cause this. However, if you compare lasers and other types of hair removal methods, lasers still come off as a common pick for those with excessive hair growth.

The other con of laser hair removal is that it can be pricey. This usually happens when you do not have a treatment plan. If you opt for our A3 Laser Hair Removal, you get highly trained therapists for a good price.

Alternative Hair Removal Treatments

You can always consider other hair removal treatments if laser hair removal is not suitable for you. Listed below are some of the choices you can opt for.


This is probably the most common hair removal method because it does not require any assistance from anyone. This is also more affordable than most hair removal methods. But the downside is you are prone to razor cuts and ingrown hair.

Shaving can also impact skin texture, especially on your face. This could result in scarring as well.


If you have a high pain tolerance, you can opt for this. Waxing removes the hair from the hair follicle. You can choose soft wax or hard wax. Generally, people have said hard wax hurts a little less than soft wax. However, this is also dependent on your hair texture and genetics.

The downside to this is, most of the time, you will need assistance. If you do not pull the strip hard enough, the hair will not come out. Hence why this method is not the most suitable for harder to reach areas of your body.


Another method for getting rid of face hair is epilation. If you're busy and don't want to constantly shave or tweeze, this method may be a better choice because it can remove hair for up to four weeks.

Epilators function similarly to tweezers and razors. The distinction is that epilators remove facial hair by simultaneously catching many hairs and pulling them out of the root. Hair takes longer to regrow because the root is cut off. Epilation can occasionally cause hair to regrow softer and finer. Strands could become less obvious.

Similar to waxing, the downside of this hair removal is the pain caused. If you have a higher pain tolerance, this may be suitable for you.

Laser facial hair removal is the way to go if you want painless hair removal. 2–5 sessions per week are commonly required for laser hair removal. The duration of the treatment may have changed in various regions. Usually, three to four weeks are needed to complete treatment for upper and lower lip hair development. Treatments on places with low growth hair, such as the back, might take anywhere from a year to six weeks. During all treatments, wear glasses to avoid making eye contact.


Treatment Tips To Read Up Before Your Session

Always be sure to know what you need to do before your laser hair removal appointment. Unlike some of the other treatments, laser facial hair removal would require you to avoid sun exposure.

Here are some tips from our highly trained clinicians:

Pre treatment

Two days before your visit, trim the extra hair from the treatment areas. Be mindful to avoid any superficial wounds.

For a week before treatment, refrain from irritating the skin with acidic skincare products and other laser & IPL treatments.

One week before your appointment, avoid getting direct sun exposure on your skin.

Post treatment

Apply moisturiser to the treated area of skin to lessen inflammation and redness.

Don't take a hot bath or shower. Additionally, carefully wash the treated area. Wear comfortable, loose clothing to prevent rubbing against the skin that has been treated.

Always use SPF30+ sunscreen to shield your skin from UV rays. Avoid being in the sun.


The Final Takeaway

Laser hair removal is suitable for all skin types. Rest assured, most people say that it feels like a rubber band flicking on your skin. Unlike other hair removal methods, this can promise you a more permanent result.

Why choose A3 Laser Hair Removal therapy?

The A3 Laser Hair Removal procedure from Perfect Laser Clinics targets the melanin within hair follicles by penetrating them with 808nm wavelength laser energy. The laser heat also limits the availability of nutrients to the hair, which prevents the hair follicles from sprouting. The procedure also uses a dual cooling system to immediately chill the skin without producing discomfort or irritability. Additionally, based on your hair growth cycle, we offer customised treatment regimens and professional skin and hair analysis.

During the A3 Laser Hair Removal procedure, will I experience any pain?

Some laser hair removal procedures may leave the skin tingling intensely, resulting in swollen, itchy skin. No cooling pads are required after treatment with our A3 Laser Hair Removal therapy since it uses a dual-effect cooling technology to cool the skin during the hair removal process. The A3 Laser Hair Removal procedure is non-invasive and painless. A little redness is typical; if you are worried or need advice on post-treatment care, speak with your technician.
