More and more men are opting to have unwanted body hair removed so they can either reduce the amount or have completely smooth skin. Laser hair removal is the treatment of choice for many men. Not only do they want it removed from the chest and back, but they also like to have their neck, shoulders and ears cleaned up as well. While most people may think about women having this treatment for hair removal, laser hair removal for men is becoming more and more popular.
Our unique laser hair removal system uses light energy and radiofrequency technology to target the pigment in the hair shaft and kill the hair follicle. A new hair could grow, but it takes a long time for this to happen, and in some cases, a new hair never grows.
The time a treatment takes depends on the area being treated. The laser can target one hair at a time, or an area about the size of a quarter. If a few hairs are being removed from the ears, it may take about 15 minutes, but if the chest or back is being treated, it could take two hours.
One reason why laser hair removal for men is beneficial is because many men only require having unwanted body hair reduced. While some hairs will be permanently gone, others may grow back. However, they will be thinner and weaker that the original hair. Some other benefits are:
- Enhanced athletic performance for swimmers, cyclists and runners
- Enhanced appearance of your muscles
- Enhanced appearance of your tattoos
It takes about six to eight treatments to get the desired results. The reason is that the laser only works during the growth stage of the hair. It may take several weeks for every hair in a specific area to reach the growth stage so it can be treated. The results may last for several months or more than a year. If you feel too much hair has regrown, you can have touch-up treatments.
Possibly the top benefit of laser hair removal for men is the removal of facial hair. Many men feel that shaving at least once and sometimes twice a day is a colossal waste of time. Laser hair removal will change your hair-removing routine and improve your lifestyle. Maybe you just want to have a clean hairline on your neck, or you want to avoid the pain and unsightliness of ingrown hairs. With laser hair removal for men, these issues are all in the past.
Laser hair removal used to work best on men with light-colored skin and dark hair. However, with the latest technology, people with any color of skin can also enjoy the benefits.
