Laser hair removal for your face | FAQ : Concerns and Costs

Facial laser hair removal

At our clinics, we treat both women and men who are wanting to get rid of unwanted facial hair.  By the time most clients have come to see us, they have spent years trying other methods such as plucking, threading, and waxing but they just aren’t getting the reduction or the smooth results they would like.  We understand how sensitive your face is, and having treatment can make you feel nervous, especially if you haven’t had laser hair removal on other areas of your body. So there are often lots of questions asked in our consultation meeting on facial laser hair removal. We thought we’d outline a series of FAQs we get asked about laser hair removal for your face that might ease any concerns that you have.

Does Laser Hair Removal Treatment Hurt?

Laser hair removal treatment isn’t as painful as other hair removal methods. It can be used to remove hair even in sensitive areas, such as the face or bikini area, as well as from your back, abdomen or chest. In the interests of client comfort, we are able to provide local anaesthetic cream to reduce discomfort if necessary.

What Kind of Laser Machine Do I Use?

At all R2L clinics, we use a Diode laser manufactured by Lumenis called the Lightsheer. The diode laser is proven to be the most effective long-term hair removal device in the world.

When will I see the results?

You are likely to see noticeable results after your first treatment. Most clients experience between 80-90% less hair growth after a full course.

How many treatments will I need?

The number of treatments needed varies between clients, depending on the following, the area being treated, skin and hair colour and medical history. This can be discussed in more detail at the time of consultation.


We offer facial laser removal at our clinics in Horsham, Chichester and Burnham.

If you have any questions then contact us and we’d be happy to talk you through our procedures and how it all works.
