Laser bleaching: is this trending treatment for you?

If you're searching for an alternative to laser hair removal for the face, take a look at this new non surgical treatment...

Are you looking for an alternative to dermaplaning for addressing facial hair, and in particular peach fuzz? Have you heard about the latest zero downtime treatment laser bleaching?

Said to be best for those whose hair keeps growing back after laser treatment, this non invasive alternative to traditional hair bleaching works by turning unwanted dark hairs colourless, making them invisible to the eye.

It’s specifically designed to address the fine hairs that cannot be treated by other laser hair treatments and is safe to use on all skin types, including darker skin tones.

The laser bleaching technique is also safer than other different and traditional methods of bleaching unwanted hair that uses hydrogen peroxide and can cause redness, peeling and even skin burns if used incorrectly.

Using the Spectra laser to target the melanin in the hair, the laser bleaches and disguises any unwanted facial hair as opposed to removing it altogether. And because it doesn’t actually remove hair, it doesn’t stimulate further unwanted growth and is a quick, painless treatment with no downtime.

Not only that, in a nod towards this years' laser mixing treatment trend, laser bleaching is also a 2-in-1 procedure, as it makes the fine peach fuzz hairs invisible while also helping to break down any hyperpigmentation or dark spots that are present on the skin.

However, one thing to bear in mind is that frequent laser bleaching sessions will be required for consistent results, as after a few weeks the hair will return to the same colour as before.

EV Expert Dr Osman Bashir Tahir (Dr OBT) from Halcyon Aesthetics, London says: “This is an extremely popular treatment in Dubai as it targets the peach fuzz hair that lasers cannot remove, causing it to become colourless.

“This results in the face looking much brighter, as the fine baby hair over the forehead and cheeks can give an uneven complexion, with results lasting around six weeks.”
