Is laser hair removal safe to have on sensitive areas?

Like the upper lip? What about for eyebrow shaping?

Yes, sensitive areas can be treated. We use lower energy in those areas for less discomfort.

Laser hair removal is great for sensitive areas including the upper lip. If too painful, numbing cream can easily be used to make it more comfortable. Laser hair removal CANNOT be used for eyebrow shaping because it is not an exact enough tool for an area with as little hair
as the eyebrow.
