Laser Hair Removal for Hands
When you consider hair-grooming methods, your mind probably first turns to legs, underarms, chest, or back.
And why wouldn’t that be the case? Those are among the most popular areas for shaving, waxing, or, the most effective, laser hair removal.
Some also want to address areas that aren’t the most sought after, and in this case, we’re discussing the hands.
Many people have significant hair growth above their wrists and on their knuckles and would prefer a cleaner look.
If you fall into this category, read on to find out why laser hair removal for the hands is a great choice!
How does laser hair removal work?
It’s the same process used for any other body area. The laser targets and damages the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin. As a result, hair growth is inhibited, and within seven to 10 sessions, you’ll be left with silky-smooth hands and knuckles!
Additionally, if hand or knuckle hair has been an issue for you, you certainly don’t want to shave. You’ll never completely rid yourself of the hair you no longer want, and the hair there will grow back thicker. But with laser hair removal? It’s literally smooth sailing!

Are there any restrictions to know about laser hair removal?
Sun exposure should be on the mind, regardless of what body area is being treated, but especially for the hands. And keeping your hands out of the sun is not easy.
Sunscreen is essential throughout a treatment. Ask a laser hair removal professional if they recommend any specific brands or SPFs following a session. And also inquire about any other creams that would be beneficial in between sessions!
Should any steps be taken prior to treatments?
As odd as it may sound, shaving your hands, knuckles, or arms before they go under the laser is necessary. This should be done 12 to 24 hours prior to treatment.
If the intention is to treat only the hand, make sure all hair on the back of the hand starting directly above the wrist is shaved, as well as the back of the fingers.
It’s a bit surprising, but laser hair removal seems like the best choice.
It really is. Again, when considering laser hair removal treatment, one’s mind doesn’t lean toward hands and knuckles. But if that hair is bothering you and you’re looking for a smooth change, laser hair removal is the best option. Set up a consultation and find out more about the benefits of laser hair removal.
