The face is an area that can be so defining for many women. A hairy lip, chin or face is usually genetic, though some women that have higher levels of growth may be suffering from polycystic ovary syndrome also known as PCOS.
Even in women with PCOS, laser hair removal - more accurately described as laser hair reduction will work, but it often takes more sessions than usual, a dedication to a laser maintenance plan, and medications to truly arrest the hair development. Excessive hair growth of the Face, Lip and/or Chin is usually hormonal, but it doesn't mean that the hormones are abnormal. Still, it may require a maintenance package even in women who do not have PCOS. A session is typically once every 4 weeks, though it may get spread out longer as the hair growth decreases.
Please do NOT use any "anti-aging" creams on your face for at least 2 weeks before the laser procedure. Like any other area, we cannot apply the laser to your skin is you have a fresh tan or sunburn. This includes spray tans, tan-towels and tanning creams.
