Breast hair can be treated safely and effectively with Laser Hair Removal.  Schedule a consultation with a reputable office for a consultation. Upon evaluation, the cosmetic therapist or RN will be able to discuss the risks and benefits of the procedure. At The Sullivan Centre in Columbus, Ohio, we used the Lumenis LightSheer Duet laser. This state-of-the-art system allows for patient comfort while effectively treating unwanted hair.

Permanent Hair Removal

Thank you for your question.

Laser hair removal is the most effective, non-invasive way to permanently remove hair. Laser hair removal targets pigment so it works best with darker hair. In our San Francisco Bay Area practice we have an Nd:YAG laser that is highly effective for permanent hair removal and works great for all skin types.

I hope this helps.

Unless you have hair on the palms of your hands or the soles of your feet, you are not unique. Some women feel embarrassed about hair on their chest, neck, face, feet, forehead, hands, abdomen, hands, buttocks or other areas. Hair in these areas on a woman is not unique. We know men shave their face, but men also shave their noses, ears, eyebrows, hands, shoulders, arms and many other areas of the face or body.
Laser hair removal for men of the back, neck, chest and shoulders are some of our most requested procedures. Male athletes must remove hair of the body some way in order to perform.
We have all heard about Brazilian Bikini waxing. Well, what about Brazilian bikini lasering? We do that too. What exactly is a Brazilian bikini laser? Well, that part is up to you. During the consultation process, you let the technician know just what areas you want treated, and any areas you want untreated.
A medical office with many years of experience in laser hair removal will not be surprised to hear that man wants his ears and nose treated with a hair removal laser. Likewise, an experienced laser hair removal office will have ample experience performing laser hair removal on any area of the face or body of a woman.

Laser hair removal has been the gold standard for the past 10 years in removing hair. Laser hair removal is more efficient and permanent than most other options.

Laser hair removal really works

laser hair removal works remarkably well and has a high patient satisfaction rate. its not a miracle though. you need to go to a reputable doctor who uses good lasers and who stands behind their work. you also need to have realistic expectations. its really permanent hair reduction, because not every single hair is gone forever, and it will take multiple treatments.

Laser hair removal works by photothermolysis and is ideal for hormonally regulated hair on the breasts.  Multiple sessions will be needed.

Electrolysis is the only PERMANENT hair removal technique

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Laser hair removal is very effective and safe in the right hands... (be careful), but it is truly "permanent reduction" and not "permanent removal". Electrolysis is the only permanent hair removal technique. Both laser and electrolysis require multiple treatment sessions.

Laser for breast hair - yes!

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

Laser hair removal for hair on the breast is a safe and effective procedure. It may take 4-6 treatments or so to get rid of all of the hair. If you have a dark skin type, then make sure that a laser like Nd:Yag is used which is particularly safe for dark skin. Another option to consider for permanent hair removal would be electrolysis.

You have a fairly common problem. A light based hair removal treatment such as IPL or BBL is ideal for this area. You may need up to 3 treatments but should have great results and this would be the safest laser to use in this area.
