A lip laser hair removal treatment is one of the procedures that are sought after by many women.  Aside from the underarms, legs, abdomen, back, buttocks, face, neck, chest, arms, toes, and thighs, the lip, more specifically the upper lip is another more commonly targeted area where unwanted hair growth needs to be controlled.  For men, it is an issue of good grooming and preserving that clean cut look.  For women, it dwells on the matter of looking a bit masculine and at times unattractive.

The basic concept behind laser hair removal technology is that it targets dark pigments, which is why the best candidates are normally those with pale skin combined with dark coarse hair.  This means that the lighter the skin of the patient and the darker as well as coarser the hair becomes, the better the intended results are achieved.  However, it must be realized that the upper lip laser hair removal treatment entails other considerations.

Before going through with your treatment, there are some steps that you need to take care of to ensure that it becomes successful.  First on your list should be to consult a qualified physician to determine that you are in good health in general.  This is important to establish whether the unwanted hair growth is normal or due to a metabolic or hormonal disorder, like in the case of PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) which can affect approximately 10% of women who are of childbearing age.

Basically, women who suffer from PCOS can succumb to excessive hair growth on the upper lip or the chin.  Hormonal imbalance can also happen during pregnancy or menopause, which means the unwanted hair growth, can pass after the condition.  There are also some women who may be genetically predisposed to unwanted facial hair growth by inheriting it from their mothers or even grandmothers, while others simply have darker and more noticeable hair than other women.

The good news with laser hair removal is that female patients can expect reduction of unwanted facial hair growth by as much as 80% after a few sessions.  The results are likewise considered long-term, which makes upper lip laser hair removal treatment cost effective solution for everyone.
