    Laser hair removal for upper lip

    See available time slots

    Upper lip laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure for the permanent removal of unwanted hair. Upper lip laser hair removal at Confido Aesthetic Medicine Department is performed only by specialists with higher medical education.

    How does it work?

    A short flash of the diode laser affects the hair pigment – melanin – and momentarily heats the hair. As a result, the cells nourishing the hair are destroyed, the hair falls out and stops growing. This procedure removes existing hair and prevents new hair from forming and growing. After a course of 6-10 procedures, the amount of hair above the upper lip is reduced up to 99%.

    Indications

    Laser hair removal over the upper lip is indicated for those who are tired of fighting with unwanted hair and who consider their appearance unaesthetic. The problem of hair growth in the upper lip area is very common. Even hair that is not the darkest shade can cause insecurities for women. Laser hair removal of the upper lip will quickly and delicately solve this problem, regardless of the reason for hair growth, be it heredity, an endocrine disease or a hormonal disruption.

    Contraindications

    • Inflammatory changes in the upper lip area (including herpetic rash and pimples)
    • Cancerous diseases
    • A large number of moles in the upper lip area
    • Acute colds (and fever)
    • Pregnancy and breastfeeding
    • Diabetes mellitus
    • Painful menstruation on the day of the procedure

    Almost all of these contraindications are relative, and the final decision on the procedure is made by the doctor or nurse at Confido Aesthetic Medicine Department during the physical examination and consultation prior to the procedure. If the patient is under 16 years of age, the patient must come to the consultation with one of the parents.

    About the procedure

    The laser beam acts on the hair pigment – melanin. Due to the short-term heating, the cells that feed the hair are destroyed and the hair falls out and stops growing. The laser beam does not touch healthy skin, affecting only the hair follicles, so the pain during the procedure is minimal. The procedure takes less than 5 minutes. The recommended interval between treatments is 4-6 weeks.

    Description of the procedure

    Before the procedure, all makeup is removed from the face and the eyes are covered with protective glasses. The laser procedure is then carried out, which is felt as a tingling sensation. Following the procedure, a medical antiseptic can be applied on the skin of the upper lip and, if necessary, additional cooling is performed with the following application of regeneration medicine.

    Effects

    As a result of the procedure, some hairs will fall out immediately, some within the next few days. After a course of procedures, the hair above the lip is reduced by up to 99%.

    What do you need to know before the procedure?

    The laser beam acts only on follicles that are in the stage of active growth. As new hair grows back, laser hair removal should be repeated. Before the procedure, you need to stop shaving the hair above the lip or remove it with other methods. Avoid visiting the solarium and tanning 2 weeks before the procedure.

    After the procedure

    The patient can return to their usual life immediately after the upper lip laser hair removal procedure. Redness of the skin in the area of the upper lip might develop and will reduce on its own in the next 2-4 hours. For the first 24 hours, try not to wet the area above your lip. Within 14 days after the procedure, avoid sunbathing and solariums. It is recommended to use sun cream when you are planning to go outside. Also use the care product advised by a Confido Aesthetic Medicine doctor or nurse.

    Comparative analysis with other procedures.

    Laser hair removal is the fastest, most effective and relatively painless way to get rid of unwanted hair above the upper lip. If we compare this procedure with waxing, the pain is several times lower.
