August 29, 2020 by Dr. Sandeep Bhasin

Everyone has a question in their mind. Which parts of the body can we cover with laser hair removal technique? It is not that it is not just the hands and legs or the other parts, today we will solve all such misconceptions in our article. Have you ever thought that you can remove unwanted hair from all specific parts of the body?

If you have done the tedious work of repeatedly shaving and waxing repeatedly with your razor, you can now save money and time. Imagine an effective laser hair removal remedy that eliminates the need to shave every day or waxing every week.

Laser technology can be the ideal solution for hair removal! Laser hair removal procedure is one of the most prevalent and latest cosmetic procedures in India for hair removal, due to its safety and long-lasting effective results, especially when performed by qualified surgeons.

Today in this blog, Dr.Sandeep Bhasin will discuss, which parts of your body we can use laser hair removal treatment. We have also given a link to our video below. If you want to take information through video, then you can also watch videos related to this topic.

Laser Treatment in Every Area is Different

Remember that the treatment areas covering larger surface areas will take more time to treat than smaller parts of the body. For instance, areas such as the upper lip can be treated in a matter of minutes, compared to hair removal from your back, which may consume an hour with repeated sessions.

Apart from the body parts, variables such as hair color, hair thickness, and skin color influence the number of sessions and the duration of each session.

The laser hair removal procedure works best on people with dark hair and fair skin since the laser targets the melanin pigment in the hair. Dark-skinned and light-haired people need additional treatment sessions comparatively.

What are the Body Parts Not Covered Under Laser Hair Removal?

The answer to this question is laser hair removal treatment can be performed on any body part wherever hair grows. Still, there is a restriction about the target area. Cosmetic surgeons cannot perform laser hair removal procedures on the eyebrow part due to the high risk of ocular (eye) injury [1]. It is illegal to perform a laser treatment within one inch of the eye socket [2].

What are the Common Body Areas Covered Under Laser Hair Removal?

Below is the list of the body parts where both men and women can undergo a laser hair removal procedure. Here is a breakdown of what to expect from laser hair removal on different parts of the body.

  1. Abdomen: People have excess hair in the area around their abdomen, especially those who have PCOS (Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome) condition. You can undergo laser hair removal treatment that provides a prolonged reduction in hair growth.
  2. Knuckles and Feet: People around the age of puberty have hair growth on the knuckles, toes, and feet. Later, these hairs may grow thicker, and become more visible. This is where you can opt for a laser hair removal procedure for a long-term result.
  3. Back: Laser hair removal treatments on the back are a common procedure among males with repeated sessions.
  4. Breasts: When women undergo hormonal changes, it may result in hair growth both on the breast and areola regions. Plucking may work only if there are one or two hair strands. Still, it will regrow. In that case, you can opt for a laser procedure that provides lasting reduction.
  5. Chest: Increased hair growth in the chest region among males is quite common due to its large surface area. It is time-consuming to opt for temporary hair removal methods, especially for the chest region. Hence, men can opt for chest laser hair removal that provides a long-lasting reduction over tweezing, shaving, and waxing.
  6. Buttocks: You may feel weird and uncomfortable undergoing laser hair removal on the buttocks area. Still, this laser therapy is the one-stop solution that can offer a long-lasting reduction in hair growth.
  7. Bikini Area: Hair removal in the bikini area is quite common among women. Shaving such delicate areas results in burns and ingrown hairs. Waxing will cause more pain since it is a sensitive body part. Bikini Area Laser hair removal procedure takes only 20 minutes per session to achieve long-lasting results. You can plan for around 5 sessions, about a month apart.
  8. Legs: The legs are supposed to be the most popular treatment areas for hair removal. You must be fed up with trying all the temporary methods to get rid of hair in your legs. Here comes the ideal solution named laser hair removal procedure that yields the best results within 3 sessions, since the leg hairs are darker and thicker. It takes 30 minutes to complete the lower legs, and a minimum of one hour to complete the full legs. It may extend up to 12 sessions for complete hair removal.
  9. Underarms: Underarms are another common treatment area where hair growth is higher and thicker. It may be embarrassing to wear sleeveless clothes when there are dark hairs on your arms. Repeated shaving leads to darkening, burns, and ingrown hairs. Laser hair removal is comparatively safe and effective for underarm hair reduction. It can take 3-4 sessions to achieve permanent hair reduction in the underarm region.
  10. Face: Hairs in the growth phase respond quickly to laser treatment. Facial hair belongs to the resting phase of the growth cycle. It is lighter and thinner compared to other areas. Hence, facial laser hair removal involves more frequent sessions and consumes more time to show effects. It takes about 15 minutes per session, where around 3 – 5 treatments over 3 – 4 weeks can yield the best results. Laser hair removal treatment also helps to reduce razor burns and ingrown hairs that occur on the face and neck due to repeated shaving.
