Laser Facial Hair Removal

Facial hair removal with Alexandrite Laser gives the solution to the problem of unwanted hair in areas of the face, restoring lost self-confidence in women and men of all ages.
Dr. Konstantina Mamali
"Facial Laser Hair Removal is the most effective method for hair removal and unlike the usual methods of hair removal, the result of which is temporary and often painful, it puts an end to the problem of persistent facial hair quickly and painlessly. Conventional hair removal methods such as wax, hair removal creams, threading, tweezers and razors can cause serious problems in the facial skin in the long term such as freckles, folliculitis, spider veins, sagging or even in some cases an increase in hair growth" says Dermatologist - Venereologist Dr. Konstantina Mamali.

With Candela GentleLase PRO

At Cosmetic Derma Medicine, Facial Laser Hair Removal is achieved using the state-of-the-art Candela GentleLase and Candela GentleLase PRO with Alexandrite Laser systems, the most specialized and effective lasers for the hair removal of hormone-dependent areas such as the face, in both women and men.

The Alexandrite Laser emits monochromatic light with a wavelength of 755nm which is selectively and exclusively absorbed by the melanin of the hair follicles, raising their temperature locally and causing their gradual weakening and eventually, their destruction (Selective Photothermolysis).

Before - After Results

The innovative Candela GentleLase and Candela GentleLase PRO Laser Hair Removal Systems are the only ones that can guarantee definitive relief from unwanted hair growth in hormone-dependent areas of the face. Generally, 7-10 sessions with an interval of 1.5-2 months are required to complete the treatment.

On the face, due to hormone dependence, a greater number of sessions may be required. After each session, the area remains hair-free for at least 1 month.

How many sessions are required for the completion of Laser Facial Hair Removal?

Laser Alexandrite sessions are repeated approximately every 1-2 months. In hormone-dependent areas such as the face, chest and abdomen, hair reduction is slower compared to Laser Hair Removal on bikini, legs and arms for which a smaller number of sessions are required and even complete hair elimination can be achieved in as little as 6 sessions.

Generally, on the face about 10 sessions are required to eliminate unwanted hair. In the case of a hormonal disorder such as polycystic ovary syndrome or hyperandrogenemia the number of sessions required may be increased.

In cases where hormonal disorders coexist, the only permanent hair removal solution is laser facial hair removal with alexandrite laser.

What can I expect before and after each Laser Facial Hair Removal session?

Before each Alexandrite Facial Laser Hair Removal session, a trim of the hair in the area is required, as the laser targets the root and not the free stem of the hair. The area is scanned with a 2cm diameter laser beam while the system simultaneously emits cool air, making the treatment quick and painless. After each session:
  • A temporary erythema may occur which subsides over the next few days.
  • Moisturising creams recommended by the dermatologist and sunscreen to protect the area from the sun should be used.
Thanks to the advanced technology of the Candela GentleLase PRO system, Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal is safe in the summer months and on slightly tanned skin.

In what other cases besides Facial Hair Removal is Laser Alexandrite used?

The Alexandrite Laser is the ideal method for:
  • Removal of dark tattoos, using the most specialized Alexandrite Laser Q Switch type.
  • Treatment of melanchromatic skin lesions such as blemishes, spots, freckles, melanchromatic seborrheic hyperkeratosis and melasma.
  • Treatment of individual cases of purple or cyan-coloured spider veins of the lower limbs.
  • Hair Removal in cases of overhair or shaggy hair due to hormonal disorders.
  • Hair Removal in cases with a history of papillomas and warts in order to prevent their spread.
  • Hair Removal in cases of medical issues such as facial and body folliculitis and coccygeal cyst.

What are the advantages of Facial Hair Removal with Alexandrite Laser?

  • Facial Hair Removal with Laser Alexandrite is the only medical method of getting rid of unwanted hair and according to the recent legislation, the use of the laser is exclusively in medical practices and medical clinics with the presence of a dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
  •   Unlike other methods of photodepilation such as photolysis or IPL, Alexandrite Laser Hair Removal does not require shaving the facial area where the treatment is applied, which causes deterioration and growth of hair.  
  • The method promises fast and painless results. Depending on the area of application, it is possible to achieve complete elimination of facial hair even in less than 10 sessions.  
  • The Alexandrite Laser is ideal for hair removal in facial areas such as the eyebrows and mid-forehead, where the application of other photolysis methods is impossible.

Can I have Facial Hair Removal with Alexandrite Laser during pregnancy and breastfeeding?

During pregnancy and breastfeeding, facial hair removal with laser Alexandrite is a completely safe method. During this sensitive period, facial hair can change and using any other method can lead to an increase in facial hair or even discoloration. The laser is absorbed only by the melanin of the skin and no other structure, making the method ideal for the period of pregnancy and breastfeeding.

Are there any side effects from Facial Hair Removal with Laser Alexandrite?

Adverse effects from Alexandrite laser hair removal only occur when the doctor’s instructions are not followed by the patient or when the procedure is not performed by an experienced operator under the supervision of a dermatologist.

Potential side effects of facial hair removal with laser Alexandrite are completely reversible and include transient erythema and periorbital edema that resolves a few hours after treatment. More persistent irritation may require more time to subside.

Hypochromia or hyperpigmentation may occur if the patient is exposed to the sun immediately after treatment without sun protection.

Is Facial Hair Removal with Alexandrite Laser effective on white hair?

The operating principle of all lasers is the selective absorption of their light beam by a specific color. Unfortunately, white hairs cannot absorb the laser light and as a result they are resistant to treatment.

In this case we apply a special technique of removing white hair, which is called Punch white hair removal. This technique is applied exclusively at Cosmetic Derma Medicine and has a permanent effect in eliminating white hairs in a few sessions.
