Is Laser Hair Removal Only For Legs?

February 11, 2019 / by Dr. Brian Dorner

Laser hair removal is primarily thought to just be for legs. And, with the majority of ads touting ladies with gorgeously smooth gams, it’s easy to see why. But the truth is, lasers are regularly used for hair removal on the face and body as well. Dorner Plastic Surgery has helped hundreds of men and women become hair-free on their faces and bodies. We want to help you too with easy, fast, treatments that require no down time!

What Hair Can Be Treated With Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal works by selectively targeting the pigmentation at the base of hair follicles. Thermal energy from a laser damages and breaks down follicles at the root. Eventually, the hair falls out leaving you with fewer hairs at the treatment site. With regular treatments according to your hair’s natural growth cycle, you can achieve long-term hair removal that lasts a lifetime.

All skin types and tones can now benefit from laser hair removal to be hair-free. In the past, we were only able to treat coarse, dark hairs on lighter skin. Thanks to advanced laser systems, however, we can safely and effectively remove almost any hair on any skin tone.
