Getting rid of a moustache shadow

By Francesca Dantonio 19th October 2013 Category: Advice

Let’s face it, many of us women have ongoing facial hair dilemmas. Seeing as our face is usually the first point of attraction, a moustache shadow can be greatly embarrassing. Have a hot date or a girly night out with your friends but you’re worried about your moustache shadow? Then why not seek a more permanent hair removal solution?

A moustache shadow is a visible dark and thick layer of hair on your upper lip. You can overcome this issue by starting laser hair removal treatment, which is a safe, virtually painless method of removing unwanted hair.

Laser hair treatment or bleaching?

You may be asking yourself why should I choose laser over other available options such as bleaching? Well the answer is straightforward, laser hair removal offers a permanent reduction in hair in as few as six treatments, so it’s better for you in the long term compared to bleaching. Laser hair removal is also suitable for use on darker skin tones. Even with make-up you will still not be able to conceal the shadow, as you will often still be able to see the facial hair in certain light.

Moreover, a study published in the British Journal of Dermatology suggests that if you have skin issues such as acne, dermatitis or eczema, you could be negatively affected by skin bleaching products.

Avoid any further hair related disappointments by having a consultation about laser hair removal treatment with one of our trained specialists today.
