Whether they shave, trim, or wax, most men find the process of removing unwanted hair to be a time-consuming chore.
For this reason, an increasing number of guys are turning to laser hair removal for a more convenient, effective, and longer-lasting solution.
If you’re contemplating laser hair removal for men, continue reading for everything you need to know about the procedure, results, and expected level of pain.
Laser hair removal for men is a noninvasive procedure that uses concentrated beams of light to target pigment in the hair root and destroy unwanted follicles.
In the past, many men stayed away from laser hair removal because they heard it was extremely painful. However, today’s technology is so advanced that laser hair removal for men is a virtually painless process.
The newest lasers are not only designed to improve energy absorption and increase efficacy, they also feature a cooling tip that prevents patients from feeling much of anything during treatment.
Some of the most commonly-requested treatment areas for men include the back, shoulders, chest, neck, and abdomen.
But more and more guys are seeking treatment for smaller areas on the face, including inside the ears and nose.
Depending on the size and number of treatment areas, a LHR session can take anywhere from five-to-60 minutes.
Most patients will need to undergo a series of six-to-eight laser hair removal treatments, spaced six-to-eight weeks apart, to achieve a 60-90 percent reduction in hair growth.
