Select physicians can provide laser hair removal via affordable, in-office procedures that enhance aesthetic appearance while leaving surrounding skin intact. Common locations for hair removal include the back, legs, arms, upper lip, bikini line and chest. However, patients can also obtain laser treatment for hair on the hands and fingers, feet, toes, ears, underarms and more. In many cases, patients can achieve permanent hair loss after just a few treatment sessions. This mostly painless treatment works by directing concentrated pulses of light into the hair follicles, which produce pigment that in turn destroys the hair. Following the procedure, patients may experience some swelling and redness, similar to a sunburn.
