Thank you for your question. This is a common problem for many women. There are lasers that are FDA approved for all hair and skin colors. When you come for a consultation, all benefits and realistic expectations will be reviewed.
Female Facial Hair Removal--Takes a series of treatments
Laser hair removal works well in this area. I suggest seeing an expert for a formal evaluation and treatment which can be combined with Vaniqa cream. Best, Dr. Emer.
55 yr old female with beard, will laser hair removal work?
Hello, thank you for your question. Laser hair removal is very effective for follicles with pigment in them, the ones that are white will not be effected. The follicles must have pigment in them in order to be a target for the laser. You will get great results on the black hairs, but the white ones would have to be treated with electrolysis. Laser hair removal is a series of treatments, usually 6-8 treatments done 4 weeks apart in this area.

Facial hair black and gray
Laser hair removal will work only on the black hair. It will then make the gray hair more noticeable. It should help reduce the need for shaving though. It will take a series of 6 or more to get a good result.
