Where on the Body Can I Get Laser Hair Removal?

By: Elizabeth Hagen


Are you tired of the constant maintenance of at-home shaving or the pain and inconvenience of waxing? Laser hair removal offers a fantastic alternative to traditional hair removal methods, providing long-term reduction of unwanted hair. At Absolute Aesthetics in Bellevue, WA, Elizabeth Hagen, a registered nurse and master aesthetician, uses advanced Soprano® ICE technology to perform safe and effective laser hair removal treatments for both women and men. Curious about where on the body you can get laser hair removal? Let's explore the possibilities.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal works by targeting the hair follicles with concentrated beams of light. The pigment in the hair absorbs the light energy, which damages the follicle and inhibits future hair growth.

What are the benefits of laser hair removal?

Some of the key benefits of laser hair removal include:

  • Long-lasting results: Laser hair removal provides long-term reduction of hair growth, minimizing the need for constant hair removal methods.
  • Smoother and moisturized skin: With each treatment, the skin becomes smoother and more supple, enhancing your overall complexion.
  • Fast and comfortable: Laser hair removal is a relatively quick procedure and is typically well-tolerated by most individuals, with minimal discomfort.
  • Less intrusive than other methods: Unlike plucking or waxing, laser hair removal is less invasive and does not involve painful hair removal techniques.
  • Prevention of ingrown hairs: By targeting the hair follicles, laser hair removal helps prevent the occurrence of ingrown hairs, leading to smoother skin.
  • Reduction of hair regrowth between appointments: Laser hair removal sessions gradually reduce hair growth, minimizing the need for frequent maintenance between treatments.

What areas of the body can be treated with laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can be performed on various parts of the body, targeting both large and small areas. Some common areas where laser hair removal can be done include:

  • Arms
  • Back
  • Legs
  • Face (upper lip, cheeks, chin, neck, beard area)
  • Chest
  • Armpits
  • Intimate areas (bikini line, pubic area)

How is laser hair removal performed?

During your laser hair removal session, you may experience some mild discomfort, but it is generally well-tolerated. The Soprano ICE Platinum laser system, used at Absolute Aesthetics, incorporates a cold sapphire tip to help keep you comfortable throughout the procedure. In some cases, a local anesthetic may be applied to further enhance your comfort. Multiple treatments are typically required to target hair follicles in different stages of growth, ensuring optimal results. These treatments are scheduled over a few weeks to achieve the best possible outcomes and leave you with silky-smooth skin. Should hair growth reappear after laser hair removal, additional rounds of “touch-up” treatments can help to restore virtually hair-free skin once again.

Is laser hair removal safe for all skin types?

While laser hair removal is a highly effective treatment, not everyone is a candidate. The safety and success of the treatment depend on factors such as hair color and skin tone. Individuals with fair skin and dark hair typically achieve the best outcomes, as the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle. Darker skin tones may not be suitable for laser hair removal due to the risk of skin damage. Additionally, pregnant women or those with active skin infections should postpone the treatment. A thorough skin evaluation and review of your medical history will be conducted by our expert aesthetic team at Absolute Aesthetics to determine if laser hair removal is the right option for you.
