Men more than ever are turning to Laser for their hair removal needs.

Women aren’t the only ones who benefit from Laser Hair Removal (LHR). We’ve helped hundreds of male clients get rid of unwanted hair at our clinics. Laser hair removal is an excellent option for men because it can treat most parts of the face and body without causing ingrown hairs or the irritation you get from shaving or the pain of waxing. It makes getting rid of hair easy, from a small patch to a full back, and it’s more or less permanent to the actively growing hair follicles.

If you are concerned about some stray hair or swamped by a nest of chest hair, laser hair removal can work for you. But what exactly is laser hair removal and can it be done everywhere on the male body? Read on to find out the facts about laser hair removal for men.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Body hair, although perfectly normal and natural, can be a pain point for a lot of people. Men are looking for efficient ways to remove hair, especially as other types of hair removal, like waxing, shaving, and hair removal creams are time-consuming to carry out and don’t last very long. Regrowth after these can be itchy and prickly, creating a shadow under the skin, which gives an uneven skin tone. It’s also hard to reach many areas of the body yourself, adding extra stress to the process.

Laser hair removal is a procedure where a laser beam is aimed at the skin to remove hair and prevent it from growing back. A specific beam of light bypasses the epidermis (the surface of the skin) targeting the hair follicles and stopping the hair from reproducing. The laser’s light turns into heat as it targets the follicle.

This means that as the hair follicle is hit by the laser, the hair shaft is made weak. Over a period of treatments, the follicle dies and hair cannot grow back, resulting in effective and thorough prevention of hair growth. Afterward, regrowth is minimal and the hair is reduced by up to 90%. If you do experience any hairs growing back, they will be softer, finer, and lighter than before.

Here at Infinity Laser, our highly trained and experienced technicians use Class IV medical-grade lasers for the process and create a personalized treatment plan to achieve the best results possible.

Where Can I Have Hair Removed With Laser?

You can have laser hair removal almost anywhere on the face and body, even in sensitive areas, such as the pubic area. Bikers, athletes or those that just want to be less hairy.

The most common places men choose to have laser hair removal include:

  • Back & Shoulders: laser hair removal is a great choice for these hard-to-reach areas, especially as it creates minimal maintenance.
  • Jawline, Beard Line & Neck: with shaving, these sensitive areas are prone to ingrown hairs when you are sporting a beard. Lasering your Neckline also extends your haircut.
  • Chest & Abs: laser hair removal works well on large areas of the body. It’s also popular with men who don’t want to get rid of their chest hair completely but want to thin it out, making it finer and sparser.
  • Underarms & Legs: is also becoming increasingly popular, especially with sportsmen, like cyclists, swimmers, or bodybuilders.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

The hair must be targeted at a specific stage in its growth cycle, to disrupt it. Individual hairs will be in different stages of this cycle as you begin your course of treatment. This means you’ll need multiple treatment sessions to target the hairs at the optimal stage of growth.

To get long-term effects, we normally recommend 8 to 12 hair removal treatments, spaced 10-12 weeks apart, depending on the area of your body you’ve decided to target. During your initial consultation with one of our highly trained technicians, they will be able to build a customized treatment plan for you to help you achieve your desired results.
