Yes, it can.
The hair on your toes is actually completely normal. But that doesn’t mean you have to like it. The good thing about laser hair removal is that it works virtually anywhere on your body that you have hair – even toes!
But there is a caveat: if your toe hair is light, you should opt for waxing or plucking (stay away from shaving because it could leave you with gross stubble AND ingrown hairs). As you’ve probably heard before, dark, thick, curly hairs respond best to laser hair removal treatments.
If you don’t know much about laser hair removal, we’re here to explain it all — from the science behind laser hair removal to its fabulous results.
So How Does Laser Hair Removal Remove Toe Hair?
If you don’t know how laser hair removal works, it might seem like magic. But it’s not! The science behind it is simple. Laser hair removal uses laser light pulses that selectively destroy hair follicles by targeting the melanin in them. The follicle’s pigment absorbs the laser’s light pulse, damaging the follicle enough to significantly slow down hair regrowth. Since the lasers target melanin, coarse, dark hair and light skin combinations tend to respond best to treatment, even on toes.
Clients with darker toe hair and darker skin and lighter toe hair and lighter skin combinations can still achieve desirable results with the Nd:YAG laser. The Nd:YAG laser has a longer wavelength and better pigment selectivity than other lasers used for hair removal, meaning that it can penetrate hair follicles more precisely, leaving the surrounding skin tissue undamaged.
And What Will You Experience If You Decide to Go with Laser Hair Removal?
The length of a laser hair removal procedure depends on the size of the treatment area, meaning a session can last anywhere from a few minutes to several hours. But if you’re just getting the hair on your toes treated, it won’t take very long at all!
Before the actual laser hair removal session, you’ll be given protective eye gear and an elective topical anesthetic. Once the session begins, you’ll feel a stinging sensation, indicating that the laser has been activated. The actual session involves a series of laser pulses that results in a prickling and burning sensation. But don’t worry; the pain isn’t too bad. In fact, it’s similar to that of a rubber band snapping against your skin.
After the laser hair removal session is over, you may experience temporary swelling and redness. Most clients can resume their normal activities. It’s important, however, that you avoid direct sun exposure. You should also wear sunblock with a high SPF for several weeks afterward.
Though complications are rare, they can still happen. The most common complications include blisters, swelling, redness, and scarring. Permanent scarring or changes in skin color are also possible, but rare.
Say Goodbye to Your Toe Hair For Good!
There’s no question that laser hair removal works. It’s the preferred way to remove toe hair because it’s safer and more permanent than other methods such as waxing, plucking, shaving, and electrolysis. Laser hair removal is so effective that most clients experience permanent hair loss after an average of three to five sessions. But you’ll have to undergo multiple laser hair removal sessions to obtain maximum results because only hair in the anagen—or active—stage of hair growth can be successfully treated.
What’s more, laser hair removal is the only proven method available for easily and painlessly removing hair from both large and small areas of the body, including the back, chest, legs, armpits, and chin.
