In my practice, we use the Diode Light Sheer Duet Laser. It is safe for all parts of the body. You should contact a reputable provider in your area and schedule a consultation. We have had wonderful success with hair removal with this system. Best of luck!

LightSheer laser is safe for facial hair

The LightSheer laser is safe for facial hair removal as long as you have treatment with an experienced technician.  It is safe to remove hairs on the sides of the face and there are none of the above mentioned problems with a Brazilian treatment.  You should have a patch test first to determine the settings and you must not be tanned before your treatment or have any sun exposure after your treatment.
