I have been waxing my upper lip and chin regularly and am finding very bad wrinkles around my mouth. I have fair skin and fair and brown facial hairs is it possible for laser to work on my face to remove hair?


Yes, we have lasers that will help to remove hair from the upper lip and chin. The laser works best on hairs that are coarse and dark. Usually, facial hairs tend to be stubborn to remove with laser, and regular sessions are required (once a month initially). We also have a laser to resurface skin and remove upper lip wrinkles! We use the erbium and carbon dioxide laser for this. However, these lasers won’t remove hair also.
