Forearms are the lower part of your arm, between your elbow and hand. They contain several muscles, including the biceps and triceps. Some people have hair on their forearms, while others don’t. It’s essentially a matter of genetics – if your parents had hair on their forearms, you’re likely to have it. But other factors can influence it as well, such as age, climate, and how active you are. Generally speaking, the older you get and the more active you are, the more likely you will have hair on your forearms.
Laser hair removal is a popular treatment option for reducing the appearance of unwanted hair on the forearms. Laser hair removal works by targeting the melanin in the hair shaft. The laser passes through the skin and is absorbed by the melanin in the hair. This causes thermal damage to the hair follicle, inhibiting future hair growth.
Some of the benefits of forearms laser hair removal include:
- Permanent hair removal
- It’s less painful than waxing or plucking
- It can be done quickly and easily
- It doesn’t cause skin irritation like shaving can
