Why You Should Get an Upper Lip Laser Treatment

Are you sick of the never-ending cycle of shaving and waxing your upper lip? Upper lip laser hair removal might just be the perfect choice for you.

Here, we break down all the reasons why you should get an upper lip laser hair removal treatment.

What happens during an upper lip laser treatment?

Upper lip laser treatments safely and effectively remove unwanted hair permanently. Skin Spa New York uses both Cutera and Inmode Laser technologies to create a customized hair removal program based on your hair and skin type.

During the treatment, your certified laser specialist will first clean the upper lip area. You will be given protective glasses or glasses to wear during the treatment. Then, the specialist will treat your skin with the laser.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal technology effectively and safely removes unwanted hair by concentrating a light beam at an actively growing hair follicle.  This damages the hair follicle to prevent or reduce future hair growth. Heat from the laser destroys the hair follicle without damaging the skin.

The benefits of upper lip laser treatments

There are a variety of benefits to upper lip laser treatments. Unlike other hair removal methods,  laser hair removal permanently removes unwanted hair. This treatment is also less painful, more precise, and doesn’t damage your skin, unlike shaving and waxing.

This treatment is extremely cost and time effective. When you compare the cost of laser hair removal to the lifetime cost of waxing and sharing, laser treatments save you both time and money. Because treatment time is dependent on the body area being treated, upper lip laser treatments take only a few minutes. There is also no downtime required. You can return to your normal routine right after your upper lip laser procedure. 

Who should get an upper lip laser treatment?

In general, people with coarse, dark hair will experience the best results from upper lip laser hair removal. We utilize multiple laser technologies so we can safely treat all skin types and hair textures. Our licensed laser technicians will customize a laser hair removal program that provides you with the safest, most effective results possible.

How to prepare for an upper lip laser

We recommend that you shave the day before your treatment, so your skin is smooth. Shaving before will increase the efficacy of the treatment and reduce discomfort. You should avoid waxing, tweezing, and plucking hair on your upper lip while you are getting upper lip laser treatments.

How many sessions do you need 

In general, you will experience a 70% to 90% permanent removal of unwanted hair by laser technique in just six treatments. Your results between treatments greatly depend on a few personal factors, including your hair’s density, color, and growth cycle.

If you want to free yourself from the never-ending cycle of shaving and waxing, an upper lip laser treatment program at Skin Spa New York may be right for you. If you have any questions about upper lip laser hair removal, our experts are here to help. Find a Skin Spa location near you.
