Laser Treatment For Facial Hair

Jun 25, 2022 | Uncategorized


Assalamualaikum wa rahmatullahi wabarakatuhu
I have excessive hair growth on my face and lately it has started to become thicker and more prominent. So, I am planning to get it removed by laser treatment.I would like to know the permissibility for getting it done.
If it is not allowed, are there other alternative solutions that I can go for?


When it comes to removing facial hair the following rules will apply:

If the hair growth is abnormal then it would be permissible to remove the hair. This would include hair which grows in the beard and moustache area for a woman and also hair which grows on the cheek for men and women. As for removing hair from the eyebrows please see the following detailed write-up:

Eyebrows & Hair Removal

الدر المختار وحاشية ابن عابدين (رد المحتار) (6/ 373)
وفي تبيين المحارم إزالة الشعر من الوجه حرام إلا إذا نبت للمرأة لحية أو شوارب فلا تحرم إزالته بل تستحب اهـ، وفي التتارخانية عن المضمرات: ولا بأس بأخذ الحاجبين وشعر وجهه ما لم يشبه المخنث اهـ ومثله في المجتبى تأمل
