I am not sure what you are referring to regarding thin facial hair,but can give you sveral comments that may help you. Shaving the hair just prior to treatment is necessary in order for the laser light to reach the hair follicle. Do not be concerned about this as shaving does not have any effect on the regrowth of the hair nor does it harm the skin itself.When using lasers for hair removal it is very important to choose the right laser, the right ways to protect the skin and the right settings of the laser.These choices should be made by an rxperienced dermatologist. Several treatments will be necessary, but usually more than 75% of the facial hair will be removed in 6-8 treatment sessions. There is no other treatment that I would recommend.
