Unwanted facial hair is very common on people with all different skin and hair types, but can be more visible on some people than others. Hannah’s fair complexion and dark, thick hair, mean that her few facial hairs can be quite visible if they’re not regularly kept on top of.
Like many people with dark hair, Hannah found that although shaving can be a quick solution to reduce hairs, dark follicles become visible quite quickly. This means that shaving has to be done very regularly, which can result in skin irritation and even skin nicks.
Hannah decided she had had enough of regular plucking and shaving and wanted a more long-term solution for her hairs.
Hannah was recommended to Bianco Beauty by a friend who was also receiving treatments.
Hannah came to the clinic for a consultation and patch test with practitioner, Bryony, where she was taken through exactly what to expect from laser hair removal.
She has since been undergoing regular treatments and is already seeing a reduction in hair on her upper lip and chin.
During laser hair removal, the laser emits pulses that are absorbed by the pigment in the hair (melanin). The heat emitted by the laser during this process damages the hair follicles, inhibiting hair growth. This is why the contrast between Hannah’s dark hair and fair complexion makes her an ideal candidate for laser hair removal.
"I’ve thought about laser hair removal for a long time, but just never got around to looking into it properly. My friend has been receiving treatment at Bianco for a while and recommended them to me. I’m starting with the hair on my face, but I’ve felt so comfortable with Bianco that I’m now looking to add more areas. I’m really happy with my results so far and can’t wait to see more as my treatments progress!"
