Why Do Men Get Laser Hair Removal?
In 2015, men want to look and feel just as good about themselves as women do. Whether it’s going to the gym, improving the wardrobe or swapping the beer for a juice, the XY chromosome-owning half of the human species is constantly looking for ways to improve their appearance.
One treatment that is becoming increasingly prominent amongst men is hair removal. Men often recoil thinking about the pain of waxing, and often shaving is not a fantastic solution because of the regrowth factor. But men’s laser hair removal is rapidly growing in popularity – and it’s easy to understand why.
Where are the most commonly treated areas?
The areas of the body that men most frequently seek laser hair removal to treat are the back, the shoulders and the chest. Some men will even seek treatment on their full arms and legs. This is especially popular for competitive sportspeople and athletes, as losing the hair effectively reduces the likelihood of wind resistance.
There are many reasons why laser hair removal for men is becoming increasingly popular, especially over other treatment options like waxing, shaving and creams. Laser treatment can reduce hair by 60 to 80%. It causes no irritation and leaves no stubble or rashes, giving the desired smooth appearance that many men are wanting. Unlike shaving it also causes no itchy regrowth, as both the hair and follicle are killed off using the laser beam. But above all, it is a safe, pain-free treatment option for unwanted hair
How frequently does it need to be performed?
To get the most out of laser hair removal, men will need to undergo a series of regular treatments. It’s not something that can be achieved in a single treatment session. Generally, it takes about 6 treatments in total, spaced every four to six weeks. Of course, this will vary depending on the size of the treated area and the thickness of the hair. We also recommend follow-up treatments every three to four months to maintain the appearance of permanence.
