Where Can Laser Hair Removal Be Done on the Body?

By: Michelle Eyler, ANP-BC


Unwanted hair growth can be frustrating and even embarrassing in some cases, keeping many men and women from wearing their preferred styles of clothing or feeling confident about their appearance overall. Not only that, but at-home hair removal methods — like shaving, plucking, or waxing — can be inconvenient, costly, and only offer a few days’ or weeks’ worth of results. If you are tired of the constant upkeep of removing unwanted hair growth and you’re ready to have smoother skin you can show off comfortably, it may be time to consider laser hair removal.

At Ageless Skin and Laser Center in Hagerstown, MD, board-certified nurse practitioner Michelle Eyler performs laser hair removal on the face and body using the cutting-edge Aerolase® and LightSheer® laser treatment systems for dramatic and long-lasting results. Discover where on the body laser hair removal can be used to help you achieve the silky skin you’ve always wanted and ditch the razor.

Does laser hair removal really work?

When performed by an experienced provider using modern laser technology, laser hair removal can offer fantastic results, including a significant reduction in hair growth in the treated areas. In some cases, patients may achieve a full cessation of hair growth in certain areas, though there may be sporadic regrowth in other areas. Additionally, some patients may achieve a dramatic reduction in the rate, density, and thickness of their hair growth without necessarily experiencing a full stoppage of growth. Oftentimes, additional treatment sessions can help to address stubborn follicles and/or regrowth to give patients the smooth skin they’re hoping for.

Where can laser hair removal be used other than the face?

Many patients use laser hair removal to tackle unwanted facial hair growth in places like the upper lip, chin, and sideburn areas. However, laser hair removal can also be an effective option for reducing unwanted hair growth on the body. Some of the most common treatment areas for laser hair removal on the body include:

  • Arms
  • Back
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Pelvic area
  • Chest

Is there anywhere laser hair removal can’t be used?

Prior to treatment, Michelle will discuss your desired treatment areas and let you know where laser hair removal would be considered safe and appropriate. Some areas that are not suitable for treatment with laser hair removal include inside the nose, the nipple-areola itself, and tattooed skin.
