Why laser for men can be better than shaving

It is often assumed that when it comes to Laser Hair Removal, it’s only women that receive the treatment. Contrary to popular belief, taking care of yourself is common amongst all genders and treatment can be received by almost anyone!

The effectiveness of Laser Hair Removal has seen the treatment skyrocket in popularity among men as well as women. Laser hair removal is the most simple and reliable solution in permanent hair removal and while we’d love to claim it’s magic, the reality is laser hair removal is simply science.

It works like this: with lighter skin types, a cosmetic medical-grade laser transmits a concentrated beam of light directly into the pigment of your hair follicles. With darker skins, the laser is attracted to the follicle’s blood supply. The laser then destroys and stunts the hair growth with both methods.

Here are some reasons men should ditch the razor for laser!


Permanent hair reduction
Laser for men drastically reduces the unwanted hair growth to the point where you can stop shaving altogether. It’s important to remember that no laser clinic can claim 100% hair removal as some hair will always strive to grow back. Re-growth is affected by hormones and other biological factors, which vary from person to person.


Fast and efficient treatment
Laser hair removal is a quick lunchtime procedure allowing most normal activities to resume immediately. Although you will need lay off the sweat sesh for 24 hours post-treatment (hello rest day!) you could easily pop out at lunchtime to get it done.


Reduces ingrown hairs
Ingrown hairs often occur after waxing, shaving or frequent exercise that causes sweating and/or chaffing. This is primarily the result of the uneven breakage of the hair tips and/or drying of the skin which prevents the hair from growing out of the follicle normally. Laser hair removal weakens then kills the hair, preventing them from ingrowing.


Beard shaping
Laser for men can also be used to shape the modern man’s designer beard. Laser neatens the beard line and banishes irritating collar rash or stray hairs on the neck and cheeks.


Laser for men reduces shaving rash
Laser hair removal is effective on all parts of the body and reduces the need to endure shaving rash – thank goodness.


Increases comfort in a hot climate
Hair helps the body stay warm which is a disadvantage in a hot climate. Almost anyone who works in a hot environment will feel the benefit of laser hair removal.


So, if you have unwanted hair on any (and we mean any) part of your body, be it your back, shoulders, legs, beard-line, chest, or down there… Call your local clinic today to book a free consultation!
