Face Laser Hair Removal Before & After: Is Laser Hair Removal Safe For Face?

Laser hair removal has become a popular solution for individuals looking to achieve smooth, hair-free skin. While it is commonly used on areas like the legs and underarms, many people also consider laser hair removal for the face.

In this blog post, we will explore the before and after aspects of face laser hair removal and address the safety concerns associated with this procedure.

Before Laser Hair Removal:


Before undergoing laser hair removal on your face, it is essential to schedule a consultation with a licensed and experienced practitioner. They will assess your skin type, hair colour, and overall health to determine if you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.


Follow the pre-treatment instructions provided by your practitioner. This may include avoiding sun exposure, discontinuing certain skincare products, and refraining from waxing or plucking for a specified period before the treatment.

Patch Test:

Some practitioners may perform a patch test to ensure that your skin reacts well to the laser and to determine the appropriate settings for your specific skin and hair type.

During Laser Hair Removal:

Protective Measures:

Your practitioner will provide you with protective eyewear to shield your eyes from the laser. They may also apply a cooling gel to the treatment area to minimise discomfort and protect the skin.

Treatment Session:

The laser emits controlled pulses of light that target the pigment in the hair follicles. The energy is absorbed, damaging the follicle and hindering future hair growth. The procedure is generally quick, but the duration can vary depending on the size of the treatment area.

After Laser Hair Removal:

Immediate Results:

While you may notice some immediate reduction in hair, multiple sessions are usually required for optimal results. Hair growth gradually decreases after each session.

Post-Treatment Care:

Your practitioner will provide post-treatment care instructions, which may include avoiding sun exposure, using gentle skincare products, and refraining from activities that may irritate the treated area.

How Safe Is Laser Hair Removal For Face? 

When performed by a qualified professional, facial laser hair removal is considered safe.

Laser hair removal for the face is highly effective. During a facial laser treatment, the laser, an intensified beam of light, targets actively growing hair to produce optimal results. The laser heats the entire hair shaft, weakening the hair follicle and causing it to detach from the shaft. As a result, hair should not grow back in the laser-treated area.

Unlike waxing and other hair removal methods, medical-grade laser machines target the hair follicle's structure down to the root, disrupting its ability to regrow.

Este Medical utilises Soprano and Candela hair removal technology for facial laser hair removal treatments, effective for all skin and hair types. Our treatments can target unwanted hair on the nose, upper lip, ears, cheeks, jawline, and chin, and even reshape unruly eyebrows.

Laser technology for facial hair removal is a popular method for achieving long-term hair reduction. By using concentrated, skin-safe laser light, this non-invasive treatment targets and destroys undesirable facial hairs. Over multiple sessions, the laser inhibits future hair growth, resulting in a smoother and hair-free complexion.
