A laser hair removal procedure can help you remove unwanted hair from various parts of your body, giving you a smoother appearance. During a consultation with board-certified physician Dr. Raj Singh at Seven Heart Medspa in Las Vegas, NV, we’ll check your needs and find a laser hair removal treatment that works for you.

While we can treat many areas of the body, not every spot is suitable for laser hair removal. Here are a few spots around your body that you should not treat because the skin can be too sensitive.

Areas near the eyes

Laser hair removal can work for many parts of your face, including around the sideburns, cheeks, upper lip, and chin. But it will not work well around the eyes. The laser treatment might harm some eye tissues if handled improperly.

The closest place that a laser hair removal treatment can work near the eyes is around the eyebrow. You can use laser treatment to remove hair near the eyebrows.

Spots where the hair is too thick

Laser hair removal is for individual hair follicles that have been bothering you. Dr. Singh or one of our medical experts at Seven Heart Medspa in Las Vegas, NV can check on specific hairs that may need help.

Laser removal isn’t for large bunches of hair where all the hair is together in one place. The work may struggle to manage multiple follicles at once. Treating individual parts is ideal for your needs. It may take longer to treat each hair, but the results will be worthwhile if managed well.

Areas around the vaginal tissue

Laser hair removal could harm the vaginal tissue, as the intense energy and heat could harm the region. While a removal plan can work for hair in the bikini zone, it will not do well for hair next to the vaginal tissue. Our doctor can review how your hair looks and see if a spot could be easy to treat.

Untreated ingrown hairs

Ingrown hairs are annoying because they are stuck under the skin. The inflammation they cause can be frustrating. But trying to treat ingrown hair with a laser procedure can be dangerous.

A small cut may be necessary to allow the ingrown hair to grow out from the skin. The hair may also need to grow out a little further to reduce the potential for it to become ingrown once again. Our experts can monitor the hair and provide a laser removal treatment when the hair becomes healthy enough to where we can remove it this way.
