Can Iodine remove hair?

Can Iodine be used as a hair removal?

I saw this on pinterest:


found here:

and I read this:

The alcohol tincture of Iodine is more penetrating and more caustic, than potassium Iodide but also more painful and therefore not preferred for wound debridement. However this caustic effect makes the tincture useful for removal of unwanted hair. I have seen permanent results after only several applications. Application of Iodide to warts is also effective but it may require a few months, depending on the size of the wart. I have seen plantar warts vanish after Iodide and I would expect the tincture to be even more effective"
from here: SSKI .html"> SSKI .html

So I was wondering if Iodine in any form can be used to remove hair, SSKI 2%, iodine alcohol tincture or any other form? And wouldn't some of these stain skin??

How about white iodine?
