Laser Hair Removal - Upper Lip

Someone asked me the other day did I have any idea where would be a good place to go and get laser hair removal done - specifically she was interested in getting her upper lip zapped.

It's quite an appealing idea (to me anyway) actually - all those hours spent either bleaching, waxing, depilating, epilating or tweezing could surely be put to a better use! Coincidentally there was an item on Off The Rails on Wednesday night about this very thing, except the guinea pig in question had it done on her underarms. Yeowch.

Anyway, plenty of places do laser hair removal for all parts of the body, but there are a few drawbacks - it's really dear, it does sting a bit - and this is the deal breaker really, you have to let the 'tash grow before they can work on it. Yikes! It's also not suitable for everyone because the laser actually works on the pigment in the hair, and blondes don't have enough pigment in theirs.


And how many treatments will it take? Well, the laser only destroys hairs when they are in their growth phase and at any one time 20%-30% of hairs are resting or dormant. Repeated sessions will treat these hairs when they re-enter the growth phase. So 8 to 10 sessions are usually required, and you may need to return once or twice a year thereafter for 'maintenance'. Expect to pay about €400+ for a complete course.

All that out of the way, where can you get this done?
