Men: Ditch the Painful Waxing and Try Laser Hair Removal

Though the fight against unwanted body hair has long been thought to be a woman’s domain, men face their own struggles as they pick up their razors every morning and set to work. If you count yourself among this group and you’d like to cut out this daily ritual (or get rid of hair on other areas), laser hair removal may be just the solution you need.

Here at Professional Aesthetics and Wellness Center we offer the latest laser removal technology, which gets rid of unwanted hair once and for all. If you’d like to explore what many of our male patients have already discovered, here’s what you need to know about laser hair removal for men.

The science behind the laser

Laser technology isn’t necessarily new, but its applications are continually expanding as the aesthetic world explores new ways to harness the energy to safely treat many cosmetic concerns. When it comes to hair removal, shaving, waxing, and even electrolysis have been the go-to methods for removing unwanted body hair, but these measures fall short in the face of the comfort and effectiveness of laser hair removal.

With we deliver light energy into the melanin in your hair follicles, which absorbs the energy as heat, without harming the surface area of your skin. This heat destroys your hair follicles, which wither and are flushed out through your lymphatic system. 

Laser evenly heats your follicles in wider areas to the precise temperature for fast and easy hair removal. 

Since the equipment relies on light energy, it features a thermoelectrically cooled sapphire crystal on the handpiece that continuously cools your skin during and after your treatment for your comfort. 

The hair where?

Many of our male patients come to us for laser hair removal because they’re tired of the red bumps and irritation that come with shaving extra sensitive facial skin. With our laser hair removal, we can remove the hair follicles on your face, allowing you to say goodbye to your razor and the daily irritation that comes with it.

Men also come to us to get rid of excessive chest hair or back hair, and even the hair on their arms. The bottom line is that everyone grows hair differently and has different aesthetic goals. With our laser hair removal service, we can target unwanted hair almost anywhere on your body (except around your eyes) to give you smooth, hair-free skin.

The road to less hair

As we mentioned, everyone is different, so there’s no one-size-fits-all solution for laser hair removal. In most cases, we recommend that you undergo six to eight treatments, spaced four to eight weeks apart, to ensure that we completely cover your target area.

The reason for this is that your hair is never all out at once because it goes through three different cycles:

At any given time, approximately 10% of your hair is in either the rest or transitional phase, which means we can’t get to it with our laser system until it enters the growth cycle. By spacing out your treatments, we can make sure that we address all of the follicles in your target area. 

If you’d like to explore laser hair removal further, call one of our two locations or use the appointment request tool online. Medical aesthetic specialist, Richard Dittrich, DO, FACOG, can help you develop a laser hair removal plan that’s right for you.
