When it comes the idea of hair free body, some men feel like going completely hair less will strip their masculinity. But who is to say what’s right and wrong. It’s all about your personal preferences or your partners wishes. Many of my male patients are sceptical about removing their hair permanently on the wishes of their spouse. But may be more open to the idea of reducing their hair. There are no rules when it comes to the goals of laser hair removal. If you feel that would like to reduce / thin the hair rather than completely removing it, it’s your free choice. And this is a question that often comes up during the initial consultations at Skin Perfection – London’s award winning skin and laser hair removal clinic. Many male patients choose laser hair removal to only thin the hair and reduce their hair growth.
Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal has become one of the safest and most effective way of permanently reducing your body and facial hair. The laser emits a single concentrated light of beam, that travels to your hair follicles, where the heat permanently destroys the root of the hair. However for the treatment to be effective these follicles have to be at a specific stage of their growth. But the fact is that not all your hair follicles are growing at the same speed. So for the treatment to work, you would repeat the sessions in ever 4-6 weeks. This time is equivalent to your hair growth cycles to be able to capture the new follicles. If you never done hair removal before, we’d recommend you at least 8 sessions to start with, however more treatments may be needed depending on your hair’s response to the treatment.
Laser hair removal to thin the hair
If your overall goal is to simply reduce the amount of hair growth; or just want to thin the hair, we’d recommend you a smaller package; that would be efficient to thin the hair but not completely remove it. In this case you may consider to start with a course of 3 sessions. And if you’d like further reduction than add more treatment later on. So it’s important to emphasise when your goal is to only thin the hair without completely removing it; a smaller package is a better choice for you.
