It wasn’t that long ago that hair removal for men was considered not the ‘done’ thing and not really that fashionable. In more recent years, however, there has been a significant shift in male body trends. No longer restricted to metrosexual males or sports people, a body with less hair is becoming a focus for men in the mainstream. At Skin Perfection, conveniently located in the heart of London, we are seeing more and more male patients express their desire to remove their excess or unwanted hair and to obtain a smoother look on their bodies. Removing hair on men, which is thicker and more course than women’s hair, can be some mean feat and painful if waxing or epilation are the chosen course of action! Fortunately, we offer laser hair removal for men; this ensures effective, comfortable, permanent reduction of unwanted hair. Laser hair removal for men may sound strange, but it is rapidly becoming the ‘go-to’ treatment for our male clients.
Laser hair removal for men: why bother?
A Mintel survey in to British attitudes to hair removal found that 50% of Brits think there is more pressure on men to remove their body hair than in previous years. The survey also found that after shaving their heads, the most common areas to get rid of unwanted hair are the legs (4%), arms (5%), bottom (6%), back (9%), underarms (12%), chest (13%) and genitals (29%). The survey also looked at age and how this may influence your desire to rid yourself of the ‘fuzz’. For 16 to 24, 58% of men reported that they felt pressure to remove or groom their body hair. Although the older age groups felt less pressure to get smooth, 22% of men over the age of 65 were starting to consider becoming ‘hair-free’.
Laser hair removal for men offers a fast, effective and scientifically proven treatment which can address a range of areas on the face and body including:
- Legs (upper and lower)
- Genital area
Laser hair removal for men: how does it work?
At Skin Perfection, we use the Cynosure™ Elite and Apogee laser systems, which utilise multi-wavelengths to send short pulses of energy in to the hair follicle, halting blood supply to the hair and over a course of time, stunting the hair growth. Depending on the area to be treated, as well as your skin and hair type, you’ll probably need around 6 to 9 treatments for optimum results. However, the award-winning Cynosure™ system not only offers minimal discomfort but is proven to permanently reduce unwanted hair faster than other machines on the market.
Before any treatment can commence, we request that you attend a discreet, no obligation consultation with one of our skin experts, to ensure you are suitable for the treatment and that you will gain the results you are looking for. With the Cynosure™ multi-wavelength system, most skin types, including Asian and black skins can be treated with great success. Our laser team have years of experience with laser hair removal for men and women, and constantly seek to improve their skills and expertise.
So men, whether it’s annoying underarm hair, a tuft of ear fluff, an unruly beard line or just a full back forest, male laser hair removal in London could be for you.
