Laser Hair Removal: A solid option for men who want to eliminate excess facial and body hair.

Shedding light on the root of the problem!

First, let’s shed some light on the use of ‘light’ to end, or as some men prefer — control —the endless cycle of shaving, waxing, trimming and tweezing.

If you are thinking of a permanent solution to your everyday problems caused by your body hair, you are at the right place.

In this post, I am going to discuss everything that you would need to know about removing hair using a laser, and the top reasons why it is a good choice for men.

How does laser hair removal work?

Laser hair removal uses specifically concentrated beams of light to target, and eventually damage and permanently destroy the ‘root’ of the problem — the hair follicle.

The laser targets the pigment in the hair, and travels down through the epidermis to the follicle. The heat generated by the light through this process damages the follicle, slows, and eventually inhibits hair regrowth altogether — all without damaging the skin.

Typically, the process of laser hair removal takes about 6 to 8 sessions, spaced apart, to ensure technicians target hair in its active growth cycle. Clients usually notice results — a distinct thinning and overall decrease of hair regrowth — after only 2 treatments.

Top 7 Reasons Why Laser Hair Removal is a Good Idea for Men

Despite its immense popularity with women, we are always surprised how often men ask: “Do men get laser hair removal?”.

The short answer is, YES!

Plenty of men like to rid themselves of unwanted hair from all kinds of areas. In fact, in many cases, laser hair removal can be even more beneficial for guys than ladies. Which brings us to: if you are a man and you’re not getting laser hair removal, consider this.

1. Men’s Laser Hair Removal Gets You in Control

Back to results. Some men want hair permanently removed from areas on their face or body, including their backs, shoulders, and neck areas. Others simply want less or finer hair — as on their chest.

Laser hair removal for men lets you control how much hair you want to remove (how dense you want the remaining hair to be), and lets you define the exact area you want to target — for a clean, well-groomed effect. With laser hair removal, there really are endless possibilities for men.  

Aside from the back, chest, shoulders and neck, other areas on the body include legs and torso for some athletes. Areas on the face might include the inner and high cheeks, hairline, nose, ears, and between the brows (the unibrow). A trade secret — laser-defining the back of the neck — extends the life of a good haircut. 

And let’s not forget manscaping — because it’s a thing.

According to a Statista study (Sept 2019), over 50% of men 18-29 years in the U.S. claimed to have manscaped. The figures decline slightly beyond that age group, but manscaping still figures prominently as men continue to age.

In a separate study (Statista 2017), 34% of men aged 30-59 years reported completely removing hair from their neck or shoulders. Excess hair removal is a legitimate concern for men of all ages, and laser hair removal is one of the best options out there.

2. Contours, defines, and brightens your body

One of the best but less-known benefits of laser hair removal is the ability to contour and define features. On the face, a well laser-defined beard can give the appearance of a trimmer, more youthful face with higher, well-defined cheekbones.

Laser-removing some chest and neck hair, lends a cleaner more defined look to a beard, and decreases the maintenance required to keep it that way. Some men also use laser hair removal to nix excess hair on their cheeks. Doing so can give the appearance of clearer, brighter, smoother, and healthier skin by eliminating stubble that resembles ‘blackheads.’ 

3. Get rid of the awfully painful Ingrown Hair

Men’s hair tends to be thicker than women’s which can lead to more frequent and painful “ingrown hairs” which are hairs that curl and grow underneath the skin. And while women typically suffer from ingrown hair along the bikini line, men mostly develop them on their neck and face for everyone to see. 

Add the irritation of a shaving routine to this chronic condition and it may appear as though you are suffering again from acne. This can permanently be avoided! 

In a few sessions it is possible to correct a problem which has been plaguing you since your first shave. Even if you are someone who wears a beard! Having smooth, healthy, bump-free skin right up to the jawline will make your beard look perfect and your skin smooth and healthy.

4. Save time and money with frequent runs to the saloons

Using the laser to shape the back of your neckline will result in less hair cuts. In fact, some balding clients have lasered their entire heads resulting in NO haircuts. Not to mention all those men out there who like to keep their legs and arms hair-free. 

Did you know that permanently removing your hair with laser can save you up to thirty thousand dollars in regular waxing and shaving costs over a lifetime? What are you waiting for?

5. Improve your game

Plenty of athletes perform better when they are hairless! Swimmers will often shave every inch of their bodies to attain better race times while cyclists and runners will eliminate hair to avoid chafing. 

Even wrestlers fare better without the rashes that can come from excessively rubbing up against other hairy guys. So, if you are immersed in sports, laser hair removal can improve your performance. 

6. Your back hair will never be “In”

One of the things ladies struggle with when deciding if they should go fuzz free in the bikini area, is whether or not they might wish they hadn’t given the latest trends in another direction. Not surprisingly, with twenty years of experience, no one has ever come to us seeking to “grow it back”. 

Still, you men are lucky in this respect because we can guarantee that in one area there will be absolutely no second guessing. With complete confidence we can tell you, your back hair will never, EVER, under any circumstance be in fashion. 

Get rid of it for good!

7. Laser hair removal for men is Safe, Painless and Permanent

The benefits of laser hair removal for men are hard to beat. It’s safe — lasers target the hair follicle without damaging the skin. It’s relatively painless.

Recent technology applies cooling effects to balance the heat required for effective damage to the follicle. Ice and topical numbing creams can also help manage any pain.

Best of all — laser hair removal for men is permanent! That means no more shaving, course unsightly stubble, ingrown hairs, infections, cuts or folliculitis.

Over time, the savings add-up — no more razors or costly waxing sessions, and no more wasted time and energy managing their unsightly side-effects — especially in hard-to-reach areas like the back, shoulders and chest. Less time and energy spent on grooming, more time and energy for the activities you really enjoy. 

Laser hair removal has been around for over 25 years now. It has contributed to countless razor-free vacations, faster sprints in the pool and on the bike, and hot looks at the beach.
