No: The light from a hair removal laser will not penetrate deeply enough to significantly heat or damage lymph nodes.
A 36-year-old member asked:

Typically, not much: Laser hair removal works by heating up the cells in the hair follicle enough to damage them. In order to damage the hair follicle without damaging the surrounding skin, the laser energy must be absorbed more by the follicle than by the skin. This will only happen if there is a contrast in color between the hair and the skin. Light-colored hair is too similar in color to the surrounding skin.

Yes: Ketamine can be taken orally. For an equivalent effect, a higher dose will be needed than if the ketamine is taken intravenously or intramuscularly (by injection).
