The cheek is the fleshy part of the face below the eye and above the mouth. This area is commonly treated with laser hair removal because it is an easy target and results in a dramatic difference in appearance. Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin in the hair follicle. The laser energy is absorbed by the melanin and converted to heat. This heat destroys the hair follicle and prevents new hair from growing.
Some of the benefits of laser hair removal for the cheeks include:
- Permanent hair removal
- It’s less painful than waxing or plucking
- It can be done quickly and easily
- It doesn’t cause skin irritation like shaving can
