When it comes to Laser Hair Removal for Men in London, the concerns are the same as all our customers. It’s men who want to opt for a hair-free body or hair reduction on certain body parts. More and more male patients wondered if laser hair removal is suitable for men? And the answer is a resounding yes. Just like you can shave, wax, epilate, male clients are most certainly suitable for laser hair removal too. Most men get fantastic results at our laser hair removal clinic in London and can have treatment in all areas too!
Why choose laser body hair removal for men?
It’s your personal choice whether you wish to be hair free just to change your appearance. But among our male clients, they often mention the below as being reasons why they want to embark on laser hair removal:-
To get rid of excess hair or just lighten the growth?
In this case, you’d be recommended to opt for a smaller course and have fewer treatments.
Tired of irritation and ingrown hairs
Maybe you want to just eradicate all these skin reactions and reduce the amount of hair more permanently?
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 in pimples/cysts. Removing hair using the wrong technique may result in the new hair growing in its place sideways or curling 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.
To have a sharper looking hairline/beard. And to reduce the number of trips to the barber
We’ve got you covered!
Being a professional athlete or taking 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 sports massages are more pleasant and become pain-free once the hair is no longer in the way.
Laser hair removal for men’s privates
A common one but some men may feel slightly uncomfortable about asking.
Maybe you are not really sure if you can even have those parts treated?
At Skin Perfection London we have specially trained laser practitioners who have experience treating those specific private areas for men.
We treat the whole body even the peri-anal (yes around the bottom whole/ anus if you’re wondering).
As long as the hair has pigment the laser will capture it.

And there’s more – every package purchased comes with a 50% off voucher for a rejuvenating Hydro Facial. Imagine stepping into the New Year with not just hair-free skin, but also a radiant, hydrated complexion.
As the laser passes over the treatment area, the concentrated beam of light is absorbed by the melanin or pigment in the hair.
Male laser hair treatment is most effective when the hair is in its active growth phase. The light energy is converted to heat energy in the active hair follicle beneath the male skin, permanently and safely retarding the growth of the male hairs without damaging the surrounding skin tissue.
Who is suitable for laser hair removal treatment for men?
Our laser hair removal london treatment is suitable for all male skin types, but will be less effective for men with blonde, grey or white hairs as there is little or no pigment in the hair follicle for the laser to target.
Generally speaking, the darker and thicker the male hair, the faster the response to treatment and the better the results.
What happens during the hair removal procedure for men?
Before the treatment If you have responded well to the test patch (with no adverse reaction after 48 hours) and are happy to go ahead with laser hair removal treatment, we will book you for your first session.
At the start of the session, the laser practitioner cleans the treatment area and removes any hairs that you were unable to shave. She then marks out the treatment area to make sure that it is treated evenly and no part (or hair root) is missed.
The practitioner also gives you protective eyewear, and covers any moles, tattoos or beauty spots in or around the treatment area.
During the treatment With the laser set to the level determined by your response to the test patch, the practitioner starts the treatment.
After the first ‘shot’ with the laser (and during the procedure), she will check that you are comfortable with the set level, and will carry on until the treatment is completed.
After the treatment If your skin feels tender or appears slightly red after treatment, the laser practitioner can apply aloe vera gel to the area. If you need further cooling, you are welcome to stay in the clinic and apply a cool pack until the skin has calmed down and you feel ready to leave.
Generally, though, most male clients only need the post-treatment aloe vera gel.
When any redness and heat sensation have passed, what you will soon notice is the difference in the hair growth in the treatment area – even after just one session.
Does laser hair removal for men hurt?
Most of our male customers cope well with the treatment and say that it’s much easier than waxing!
The sensation is described as being like a little pinprick, with a heat sensation that stops immediately after the laser has been fired.
We also use Cynosure’s skin cooling system, which blows cool air over the skin and helps to minimise any discomfort.
What are the side effects?
The most common side effect of laser hair removal is erythema (redness) in the skin of the treated area, which some male clients describe as feeling like a mild sunburn
This sensation can last for as little as 30 minutes, but for most patients the skin fully recovers over the course of a few hours.
Applying an aloe vera gel, post-treatment balm or medical barrier cream to your skin immediately after treatment can help with recovery. These products are available to buy in the clinic.
You can return to work or carry on with your day immediately after the treatment session.
Will I need a consultation and test patch?
Before you go ahead with any male hair removal laser treatments, you will need to come to the clinic for a consultation and patch test.
This enables us to:
make sure you’re suitable for the treatment
carry out an inspection of the proposed treatment area
discuss the procedure in detail, including expectations, possible outcomes and side effects
complete a small patch test using the laser, to determine the most suitable level for your skin type and to make sure you have no adverse reaction to the treatment
give you advice and recommendations about home-use skincare.
How should I prepare for the consultation?
For your consultation, some hairs in the area for treatment will need to be visible so that the laser practitioner can complete the laser assessment and patch test.
Afterwards, and before you start the treatment, we ask you only to shave or trim your hair in the proposed treatment area.
How should I prepare for the treatment?
In the few weeks before your next laser hair removal appointment, we ask that (in the area to be treated) you don’t do any form of hair removal that pulls the hair from the root, such as:
If you have done any of the above, you will need to wait a few weeks to allow the hair roots to regrow, so that they provide a target for the laser during the treatment. You only need to shave or trim the hairs between treatments and do this preferably the day before your next appointment.
To get the best results, you should also avoid sun or UV light exposure to the treatment area for 4 weeks before your appointment. Sun or UV light exposure (such as from a sunbed) can make the treatment less effective and may increase the risk of an adverse reaction.
If you have had sun or UV light exposure to the area treated in the previous 4 weeks, we may need to do a further patch test to the areas if there is still a tan present.
Please note that certain medications and herbal remedies can cause increased sensitivity to UV light, and therefore affect the results of laser hair treatments. If you have any concerns, please call us at the clinic for more information and advice.
How many men’s hair removal sessions will I need?
A full course of 6 to 9 sessions will result in a permanent reduction of hair growth among men.
However, many of our male clients see remarkable results even after the first session, depending on the individual’s circumstances. These include, but are not limited to hair type, hair colour, skin tone, medication, genetic variation, hormones, patient compliance and tolerance to the treatment.
We will discuss the procedure with you in detail, including the likely number of sessions needed, in your consultation for the treatment.
How often will I need treatment?
We recommend that male customers have their first course of laser hair removal treatments at regular intervals. For patients having facial areas treated, this means a session every 4 weeks; for body areas, a session every 6 weeks.
We always recommend a course of at least 6 treatment sessions, at the intervals above, to help achieve the best results.
What aftercare do I need?
We will give you detailed advice about post-treatment care in your consultation, and give you a reminder after every treatment session.
We will also give you a copy of our client guide, which explains what to do before, during and after the procedure. It also has our contact number so you call the clinic during opening hours any questions or concerns you have.
The main things to remember are that, just after your treatment session, you should avoid:
saunas and steam rooms
taking hot baths or showers
exercise or swimming.
