Laser hair removal of hands is a non-invasive treatment, during which the hair follicle is destroyed by the selective action of a laser. This leads to the cessation of hair growth in the treatment area.
Modern canons of beauty force us to follow the norms of modern society. Thanks to advances in medicine and technology, getting rid of unwanted hair is not a big problem today. You need to be patient and choose the correct epilation method.
Causes of hair growth
The presence of hair on the skin of the hands is a sign of hypertrichosis.
Hypertrichosis is a rare syndrome that is characterized by excessive hair growth anywhere on the body. Read in detail - hypertrichosis.
In most cases, hypertrichosis is a congenital feature of the body. The presence of hair on the hands can be inherited. In eastern countries, hypertrichosis in women is more common, which proves an ethnic connection with increased body hair growth.
In some cases, excess hair growth can appear during life and is acquired in nature. There are many reasons for acquired hair growth:
- starvation and malnutrition
- unhealthy diet or certain eating disorders such as anorexia nervosa
- certain medications and medications such as hair growth medications, certain immunosuppressants and androgenic steroids
- cancer and cell mutation
- autoimmune and infectious diseases affecting the skin.
Methods to remove unwanted hair
There are temporary and permanent hair removal methods. Temporary methods include shaving, waxing, sugaring, etc. Temporary methods give short-term results, after which hair growth resumes.
Permanent hair removal - permanent hair removal. Permanent hair removal methods include electrolysis and laser hair removal.
Method of selection
Laser hair removal refers to permanent methods of hair removal on the hands. During the treatment, the hair is selectively heated by a laser beam, which leads to the destruction of the bulb and hair growth stops forever. Due to the selectivity of the action, the surrounding tissues are not damaged. This guarantees high safety. Laser hair removal has only one drawback - the impossibility of removing vellus and light hair. Due to the absence of melanin, which gives color to the hair, the laser energy is not absorbed by the hair and there is no destruction of the bulb. Hair will fall out, but its growth will resume after a while. The same applies to low power lasers.
For patients with light hair types, the only way to remove unwanted hair on the hands is electrolysis.

The prevalence of hair growth on the hands can cover one or more zones. Depending on this, the following zones are distinguished:
- full arms
- aesthetic appearance

The hair on the arms is thinner than hair on other parts of the body, so it is difficult to remove it if the laser has low power and does not have special settings for removing hair of a smaller diameter.
Our laser has a special mode that allows you to remove fine hair. This ensures that hair does not resume its growth after stopping laser hair removal treatments and money is not wasted.
