LASER hair removal nose
Nasal hairs serve a function to filter debris from entering the nose and our respiratory system. In some cases, overly long nasal hairs can actually obstruct the airway (seen in a Mayo study). Electric trimmers are the best way to consistently trim nasal hairs. Plucking nasal hairs is the worst method (can lead to abscess formation). LASER hair is a good permanent way of treating the anterior portion of the nose in some patients.
