Electrolysis for Upper Lip


I “MUSTACHE” You A Question

Is your mustache bothering you? Mustaches can be a source of silly questions, a fashion statement, or a bothersome obstruction on your face. Male or female, a mustache is a strip of hair left that grows above the upper lip. Archaeologists believe even cavemen shaped their facial hair into mustaches using shells and tweezers. But the mustache as it’s known today came into its own in England during the Elizabethan era.
Women can also grow upper lip hair and some even embrace their mustaches. Whether your upper lip hair is light or dark, thin or coarse, a single hair or a full mustache, all facial hair is natural. If upper lip hair removal in Los Angeles is on your mind, The Vertical Wellness Spa is here to help.

Why We Have Upper Lip Hair

Before getting into the method of upper lip hair removal, let’s first go over what causes upper lip hair growth. The excess production of androgens (male hormones) is often responsible for upper lip hair growth. All women naturally produce small amounts of androgens. Every woman has facial hair, but for some, the texture and growth is far thicker and faster. This prevents skincare products and makeup from applying and blending easily and, let’s face it, can look unattractive. 

Hirsutism can run in families. It may also be caused by:

  • Polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). This is the most common cause of hirsutism in women. It is a disorder that causes hormone problems.
  • Disorders of the pituitary gland, adrenal gland, or thyroid gland
  • Tumor on the ovary that makes extra androgens
  • Severe insulin resistance
  • Changes in hormones from menopause
  • Use of anabolic steroids or corticosteroids
  • Use of medicine to treat endometriosis
  • Certain other medicines
  • In some cases, the cause isn’t known. This is called idiopathic hirsutism.


Laser Hair Removal vs.  Electrolysis

The only way to permanently eliminate unwanted hair is a process called electrolysis. When you are ready to get rid of unwanted hair on your face or body, you want the results to be permanent. No one wants to invest in the hair removal process, only to have the hair regrow after a few months or years. At The Vertical Wellness Spa, the new home Electrolysis by Alison in Los Angeles, we use the thermolysis method of electrolysis. Thermolysis is the most effective  and safe modality of electrolysis and provides the best experience for our clients, whether they need a few hairs gone from their upper lip, or wish to completely get rid of hair on their entire back, chest, legs and more.

Upper Lip Electrolysis is for Men, Too!

While facial hair is natural in males and females, some people prefer to remove some or all of it. Electrolysis for men is incredibly popular in Los Angeles. Our male clients value the benefits of electrolysis permanent hair removal for hair on their chest, back, legs, hands, underarms, necks, as well as facial hair. Electrolysis also has the advantage that it works effectively on all hair types regardless of skin tone or hair texture, unlike laser therapy. Imagine being able to wake up and get ready for work without worrying about whether your facial hair is under control. The skin on the face is more sensitive than skin elsewhere on the body. When removing facial hair, be sure to follow electrolysis aftercare procedures as outlined by your electrologist.
