Is Laser Hair Removal For Men The Best Solution? The facts explained…
Male hair removal has its fair share of supporters amongst men and women alike. It used to be that only sports athletes practicing bodybuilding or swimming would undergo hair removal. However, currently more and more men, in the pursuit of hygiene and mens grooming, want to have a smooth body not only for their partner, but also for themselves. The growing interest in laser hair removal for men at our Laser and Skin Care clinic in Hale includes areas such as from armpit, chest, back and intimate areas.
To remove, or not to remove…
Male skin is generally covered with bigger number of hair than female skin, and as male hair is much thicker, it requires specialised care. Men are much more likely to suffer from hyperhydrosis (excessive sweating) on underarms and intimate areas. Numerous sebaceous and sweat glands, located in the skin of the groin, combined with the physiological secretions create ideal conditions for the development of microorganisms and bacteria responsible for infections and unpleasant odours. Not having hair has proven helpful if you wish to solve this issue.
What are the mens laser hair removal options?
1. Mens Shaving
A shaver is by far the most popular method of hair removal for men. Regardless of whether you use disposable razors or electric shavers to trim or completely remove unwanted hair this method is quick, convenient, painless, and most importantly – very practical! The main advantage of this method is that it can be performed at home, in the privacy of one’s own bathroom during a shower or a bath.
Moreover, the method works for every part of the body, however, could be tricky to shave hidden areas such as the back and hard to reach areas. However, the main disadvantage of this method is the fact that, unfortunately, the hair grows back very quickly and a characteristic, sharp regrowth becomes visible, in some cases even within one day. Electric hair removal devices for men usually give better effect. It can be used on every body part giving the effect of smooth skin and peace of mind for up to 1 week.
2. Mens Waxing
The popularity of waxing among men is growing year after year, but the method, although not pleasant, gives a longer lasting effect than shaving (about 3 weeks), due to the fact that the hair is removed together with the hair bulbs. Wax epilation is highly recommended to men who want to feel comfortable and do not want to waste time on body care every day, but its main disadvantage is the pain.
3. Laser Hair Removal for Men
Only laser hair removal for men can offer long-lasting effect when it comes to hair removal. If you have dark and thick hair the treatment has proven to be highly efficient, once the laser beam reaches the melanin present in the hair follicle, destroying the bulb irretrievably and inhibiting hair growth. The procedure is cyclical in nature, so 6-8 sessions are required for long-lasting results. The procedure is non-invasive and safe – if performed by trained professionals. You can definitely get rid of skin irritation, bumps and ingrown hair, mostly caused by razors blades and wax. The initial results of laser hair removal are visible about 3 weeks after the first treatment, but in order to get a permanent result it is necessary to have between 6 to 10 treatments performed in ranges from 30 to 45 days.
