Can hair be removed from the outer and inner nasal area with electrolysis? My nose is getting quite hairy as I age. Can this hair be removed with any treatment safely?

Laser Hair Removal for Nasal Hair
LASER hair removal inside and out
LASER hair removal is an option for select persons and is effective in removing hair from the nose. Typically, 2-4 sessions are required to permanently reduce the amount of nasal hair. In our experience, the mucosa of the nose has not been altered with LASER hair removal of the nose.
Laser hair removal around nose
The first issue is that electrolysis is different than laser hair removal. One uses heat developed by light to remove hair (lasers) and the other uses heat developed by electricity (electrolysis) to remove hair. Because we perform only laser hair removal we will avoid commenting on electrolysis. It is possible to perform laser hair removal safely ONLY on the exterior areas of the nose. The interior nostril area is made up of mucous membranes that would be burned if laser hair removal was performed in this area.
