What Areas of the BodyAre there specific areas of your body that you wish were hairless? If so, you’re certainly not alone. Many people try various hair removal methods to achieve smooth, hairless skin. Laser hair removal is an ideal hair removal method because it’s effective, versatile, and virtually permanent. 

One of the first questions that many people have about laser hair removal is which areas can be treated. Here, we’ll answer this question and provide an overview of laser hair removal.  

Areas That Can Be Treated With Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal can be used to target unwanted hair on any area of the body, except for the orbital rim of the eyes. With the flexibility to remove hair virtually anywhere, both women and men can achieve their desired look. 

The most popular laser hair removal areas for women are the face, underarms, bikini area, and legs. For men, the most popular areas include the ears, neck, back, and chest. 

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

During laser hair removal, a laser targets unwanted hair on the chosen area(s) of the body. The light energy emitted by the laser targets the melanin (color) in the hair just under the skin. The laser creates controlled injuries in the cells around the hair follicle, leaving the surrounding skin untouched. The damage to the cells around the follicle prevents hair from growing back in the future. This makes laser hair removal a lasting alternative to shaving, waxing, and plucking!

Laser hair removal provides a 70% to 98% permanent reduction in unwanted hair for most people. Six treatments are typically required to achieve this reduction, as each treatment provides about a 20% permanent reduction.
