A relatively normal part of the day for most people involves some form of hair removal – waxing, shaving, and plucking. But these are time-consuming and not that effective, with hair popping up only a few days later. This is why so many people are turning to laser hair removal. But where exactly can this treatment be performed? Is it even safe for every part of the body, or can it only be used in specific areas? In this post, we answer these questions as we share ten common areas people get laser hair removal.
Hormonal changes and certain medications have left some women complaining of unwanted hair growth on their breasts and nipples. In cases where there is that one or two odd hair, plucking may be sufficient. However, if the hair growth is more widespread, laser hair removal can provide lasting reduction. It works as effectively as it does on any other part of the body and can even remove the tiniest growth of hair. The best part is that it will not hurt or damage the delicate skin, nor will it leave any marks.
For many people, the hair under their arms is dark, rough, and wiry. If this wasn’t bad enough, it also grows back so fast! Not to forget, its association with sweating and bad odours. No wonder people shave their armpits in the shower almost every day. Yet daily armpit shaving can cause ingrown hairs, cysts, and severe razor burn on the armpit area. If you are tired of this tedious work or painful waxing at the spa, it’s time to ‘turn in’ your armpits to the professionals. Laser hair removal is by far the best way to get rid of underarm hair. Just make sure it’s done by a licensed and trained professional who knows how to operate a laser properly.
While facial hair is completely natural and totally normal, it isn’t very pleasant for those who want a smooth, fuzz-free complexion. For some men, shaving once or even twice a day is required to maintain the appearance of a clean, close shave throughout the day. On the other hand, unappealing chin fuzz or sideburns can be challenging to cover up, especially for women. If you want to say bye-bye for good to these facial hairs, then laser hair removal is your next best friend.
While swimsuits and bikinis compliment a woman’s figure, they do very little to hide the pubic hair from peeping out. Yet, regular shaving in the bikini area, especially in the summer months, can leave many women with razor burn, bumps, or uncomfortable skin rashes. This is why this is one of the most popular areas for laser hair removal treatments.
Beardline & Neck
Suppose you’re a man prone to razor burn and constant ingrown hairs on the sensitive neck area. In that case, laser hair removal can help maintain a sharp beard edge without the need for a razor every morning. It’s also perfect for targeting the stragglers around your beard or moustache for a cleaner, more crisp look.
From ageing to genetics, belly hair can be attributed to a variety of factors. It’s no surprise that the navel area is a common problem area with many people complaining of stubborn hair growth on their torso. Though stomach hairs tend to be thicker and denser on men than on women, neither of them actually prefer having them. Laser hair removal is one of the most advanced and effective procedures to permanently eliminate abdominal hair. Only a few sessions are needed to reach the desired result. Soon you can confidently head to the beach or pool and flaunt your abs.
Permanently remove stubborn upper lip hair in as few as four sessions. How does that sound? If you’ve been fighting a losing battle against these pesky little hairs, this might sound surreal. Yet, if your upper lip hairs always come back, no matter how many times you tweeze, shave, or wax, it’s time to look into laser hair removal. Everyone is different, and results vary, but most people can expect up to a 90% reduction in upper lip hair in as little as four to six treatments.
Butt hair: We all have it, and there’s absolutely no need to get rid of it if you don’t want to. However, for many people lasering here makes them more confident revealing the area, and it also decreases nuisances like acne and ingrown hairs. Just make sure to avoid tight clothing for a while to give your bum some time to heal. In case of any irritation, don’t go applying any random creams(it’s a sensitive area!) without first checking with your laser practitioner.
Back & Shoulders
A popular area among men since they are the ones most likely to deal with excess body hair in this area. Because men tend to have thicker, coarser hair, laser hair removal comes to the rescue by nixing hair growth without causing the razor burn, ingrown hairs, or chronic irritation associated with more common hair removal methods as shaving or waxing. Not to mention the back is hard to reach area, a fairly permanent solution like laser hair removal is preferred by most men and women alike. No more embarrassing back and neck hair sprouting through your shirt collar at work or vest at the gym.
Fingers & Toes
Coarser, darker hair on the fingers and toes extending to the back of the hands and tops of the feet are often areas many neglect to consider for laser hair removal. But these small areas can be treated quickly and effectively as part of the arm and lower leg laser hair removal package. While there aren’t any health benefits to hair-free knuckles or toes, most people do so for aesthetic reasons. Sandals and engagement ring close-ups will definitely look more attractive, hair-free.
