Men’s Laser Hair Removal

Unwanted body hair can be frustrating and difficult to remove. With laser hair removal you can permanently remove hair from places where you don’t want it. That is why Laser Hair Removal is growing in popularity with men. In fact, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons released their annual statistics and the fastest growing non-surgical procedure in 2012 was laser hair removal!

Permanently Remove Hair from Places You Don’t Want It
Lasers are FDA approved for “permanent hair reduction.” When the laser targets a hair that is in its “growing” cycle, it permanently kills the cells in the hair follicle that produce that particular hair. Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to improve your looks. And once you’ve completed the treatments in an area, the hair won’t come back.

Popular Sites for Laser Hair Removal or Thinning with Men Include:
– Back
– Upper arms
– Chest
– Unibrow
– Neck (front or back)
– Abdomen

Many men are even turning to laser hair removal for facial hair too. A few treatments can really change your morning routine and help you avoid the ingrown hairs, razor burn, and irritation you get from shaving.

Does it hurt?
Each time the laser is fired on an area of skin you may feel some stinging like the sensation of a rubber band being snapped against your skin. This sensation lasts for a fraction of a second when the laser is fired and not after. In areas where you have a higher concentration of hairs the laser is targeting, you will feel more of a sting. Generally, no local anesthesia or pain medication is needed. However, some patients may prefer a topical anesthetic or a pain medication when sensitive areas are treated, and these can be provided.

The Number of Treatments Needed Can Vary
The number of laser hair removal treatments for men can vary. On average, somewhere around 4 – 8 treatments are typically needed, spaced around 4 – 8 weeks apart. The actual number of treatments required will depend on several variables such as the type of hair, the area being treated, skin tone, hair color, texture, thickness, resilience, and your tolerance to the laser treatment. You may also need a couple of maintenance appointments annually following your completed course. As a bonus, laser body hair removal for men means your ingrown hairs will disappear from the very first appointment.

You Can Return To Normal Activity After Your Treatment
The appearance of the treated area immediately following treatment will vary for each individual. Short-term side effects may include slight redness and swelling around the hair follicle, which are in fact desired clinical results, and indicate the follicle has responded well to the treatment. This usually lasts less than an hour, although infrequently for some may last a few days. Most clients resume normal activity after their treatments. Occasionally, a slight rash may occur on body parts that are difficult to exfoliate such as ingrown hairs and men’s backs.
