Not so long ago, laser hair removal was strictly for women. It wasn’t really for men, unless it was required - like for a body-builder, competitive swimmer, or other type of athlete. In most cases, male body hair remained intact, perhaps because of the masculine aspect. Needless to say, things have changed. Skin care experts are reporting more and more men choosing the same grooming needs as women – and that naturally includes a smooth, clean, and hairless body.
For the most part, men don't want to be totally hairless – but they definitely want some thinning out. This is particularly true with the back and chest, and particularly relevant for those men who are extremely hairy in those areas. However, there are also men opting for laser hair removal in the eyebrow area, around the ears, and even at the back of the neck. And then, there are men who selectively choose the famous “bikini wax” that women have been doing for ages.
Conventional hair removal techniques, like waxing and shaving, do not provide effective, long-term solutions for many men. Plus, these techniques can cause undesirable cuts and nicks, as well as in-grown hairs that are troublesome and sometimes painful. With laser hair removal, all of these shortcomings are avoided, and permanent hair removal is guaranteed. Best of all, there are no side effects to speak of, there’s no downtime, and there’s no recovery time.
What’s important for men (and women) is to seek out a professional skin care clinic that uses the most advanced technology available, and offers clinicians who are skilled and proficient in their work. Today, laser hair removal is both safe and reliable - six treatments are recommended, and noticeable results can be seen after 2 or 3 treatments. While results differ with every individual, based on skin colour and hair colour, the overall results are long lasting.
