When it comes to hair removal, it’s not only the female who opt for a hair free body. More and more male patients wonder if laser hair removal is suitable for men? Just like you can shave, wax, epilate, male patients are suitable for laser hair removal too. But what’s the best laser hair removal for men?
Best laser hair removal for men
With a saturated market, a number of technologies and even with dawn of at home laser hair removal devices it can be a rather overwhelming choice.
Laser hair removal has come a long way in the past years, with advancements in technology making it suitable for all skin colours. No doubt laser hair removal is one of the most simple, fast and cost effective way of getting rid of your unwanted facial and body hair.
Laser works by emitting heat, that is picked up by the pigment in your hair and transported to its root. Here the heat targets and destroys the root preventing future hair growth. So much easier, quicker, cheaper than waxing or shaving. And it saves you tons of time and skin irritation, so what’s not to love about it?
A Medical grade laser is designed with direct wavelengths that specifically target the melanin in the hair, making the treatments more specific and effective. At Skin Perfection we are using one of the most popular lasers from the Medical Aesthetic Industry which is the Cynosure Elite. This specific laser combines two optimal wavelengths in one system: the 755nm –Alexandrite laser and the 1064nm –Nd Yag laser, allowing our highly experienced practitioners to adjust the laser specifically to your skin type.
Benefits of laser hair removal for men
It’s everyone’s personal choice whether they wish to be hair free just to change their appearance. But there are so many other reasons why more and more men get laser hair removal. Some of which are;
- To get rid of excess air or just lighten the growth – Some patients only treat to get a small reduction rather than completely remove all the hair. In this case patients opt for a smaller course and have less treatments.
- Eradicate thick coarse facial hair & ingrown hairs. Get rid of irritation from daily shaving. And have a smoother skin.– Ingrowing hair is most common when you shave, wax or use other methods to remove hair. As either of these processes can result in swelling, it may lead to irritation to your skin. That can result result in pimples / cysts. Removing hair using the wrong technique may result in the new hair growing in its place sideways or curl back down. As a result the pores can close over the hair which becomes trapped or ingrown. After this the skin’s natural reaction is to become inflamed and often very painful.
Laser hair removal is one of the most effective ways of stopping ingrowing hair. This is because the laser goes straight to root cause by destroying the follicle. Therefore it prevents hair growing and causing irritation to your skin.
- Have a sharper looking hairline/beard. And to reduce the number of trips to the barber. Aka to save time– That’s right, we can shape your hair depending on your preferences.
- Are you a professional athlete or take part in regular sports? – A large amount of body hair can cause friction and irritation while wearing tight clothing ( like cycling kits, compression tights). And also from sweating and rubbing. Not to mention sport massages are more pleasant and become pain free once the hair is no longer in the way.
