In women, one of the most common areas of facial hair growth is above the lips. Simple peach fuzz or moustache, these very visible hairs can be annoying in everyday life. Thus, the laser hair removal of the upper lip makes it possible to get rid of the waxing process or to use an electrical hair removal tool.

Lips allow emotions and expressions to be expressed, but they are also a major asset during seduction. Thus, when a small moustache appears above the lip in women, it can quickly become a source of hang-ups and psychological discomfort.
The hairs on the upper lip are unique compared to other hairs. In fact, the hair is relatively thin with a small concentration of melanin. The result is quicker on the central side of the upper lip than on the sides. Patients should never shave their upper lip hair before the session so as not to stimulate them.
Unfortunately, in the case of small peach fuzz, the laser will not be effective due to the low melanin content of the hair. On the other hand, when the hair is dark, it is possible to use laser hair removal. The hair being thinner, the number of sessions to be followed will be more important.
