Laser Hair Removal for Men
Permanent hair removal used to be strictly a “girl thing.” Unless a man was a bodybuilder, cyclist, or swimmer, they generally left their body hair untouched. But times have changed, and statistics show that more and more men are engaging in the same cosmetic body treatments as women – including hair removal.
While some men have areas where they want all hair removed, others may just want their hair thinned out in some places. The back, shoulders and chest are typical areas for total hair removal. While arms and legs are areas of the body on which many men want to thin out their hair.
Various recent media stories have also reported that more and more men are also opting for hair removal in the “bikini,” buttocks and perianal area – for increased self-confidence and better hygiene during those intimate moments.
How Laser Hair Removal Treatments for Men Work
Laser Hair Removal Treatments utilize colored laser light energy to penetrate the hair shaft. The pigment in the follicle absorbs the heat from the light – and it actually kills the hair root.
Depending upon the size of the area, laser hair removal typically only takes about 30 minutes. The laser is best applied to new-growth hair – and since hair does not grow all at once, multiple treatments will be needed.
After the patient’s series of laser hair removal treatments are completed, the results are almost completely permanent. However, particularly hairy men may want to schedule annual touch-up treatments to maintain complete results.
Comparing Laser Hair Removal Treatments for Men
In our medical spa we have a variety of laser hair removal technologies – including Nd: YAG, which is the only hair removal laser suitable for dark and African American skin.
Laser treatment is a better than shaving because there is no stubble. And shaving can result in ingrown hairs, which occur when shaved hairs curl back into the skin instead of growing outward.
Laser Hair Removal is also better than electrolysis in a few respects. It is faster – since electrolysis requires that each single hair be treated individually, while laser kills several hair roots at once. It is also more comfortable than painful electrolysis – and generally much less expensive as well!
