Curious about where laser hair removal can be used to reduce or prevent hair growth? Find the answer – and other helpful information about laser hair removal – here.

How does laser hair removal stop hair growth?

Laser hair removal works to reduce hair growth by targeting and destroying hair follicles with laser energy. This disrupts the growth cycle and can result in future hair growth being much thinner, sparser, finer, or absent altogether. At The Plastics Clinic, we perform laser hair removal using the cutting-edge Soprano™ Titanium laser with three-wave technology for optimal results and a built-in cooling system for a more comfortable treatment experience.

Where can laser hair removal be used?

One of the most exciting aspects of laser hair removal is that treatment can be performed almost anywhere on the face and body where unwanted hair growth is present. Among the most common treatment areas for laser hair removal in South Jordan, UT include:

  • Cheeks
  • Chin
  • Beard area
  • Upper lip (mustache)
  • Neck
  • Arms
  • Underarms
  • Back
  • Male chest
  • Stomach
  • Legs
  • Intimate areas

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

There are a few places that are not suitable for treatment with laser hair removal, including:

  • Inside the nose and ears
  • Internal intimate areas
  • The nipple-areola itself
  • Tattooed skin

Additionally, very dark skin is not typically treated with laser hair removal. Because the treatment works by targeting pigment in the hair follicle, highly pigmented skin (including tattooed skin) can be burned or damaged during laser hair removal. During your initial consultation for South Jordan, UT laser hair removal, our knowledgeable team will evaluate your skin, assess your desired treatment areas, and determine whether laser hair removal may be a safe, appropriate, and effective option for you.

Does laser hair removal really work?

Laser hair removal is designed to reduce the rate, density, thickness, and other aspects of hair growth – often dramatically – but may not result in a complete cessation of growth. Still, some patients find that hair growth in certain areas never recurs after laser hair removal. Should hair begin to grow again after laser hair removal, whether months or years later, a repeat round of treatment – known as a “touch-up” or maintenance round – can help to restore smoother skin once again. For most patients, laser hair removal offers the opportunity to greatly reduce the need for shaving, waxing, plucking, and other at-home hair removal methods.
