Laser Hair Removal for Men

shutterstock_95030470When most of us think of smooth skin, we’re not thinking about men. So, it may come as a bit of a surprise that our practice sees a lot of men from all over Orange County who are interested in laser hair removal. Men are becoming more aware of personal grooming than ever before, and laser hair removal is a safe, effective way to achieve the look they want…permanently.

Motivating Factors

There are a lot of reasons why men might seek out laser hair removal. Unlike women, men’s hair growth patterns continue changing and thickening with age. Also unlike women, men are not taught from puberty how to manage any unwanted strays. Plus, a lot of male hair growth shows up in pretty inconvenient places; your upper back is practically impossible to groom by yourself.

Although laser hair removal is most often associated with completely hairless results, the procedure can also be used to just thin out growth. For many men, this is the perfect answer. Rather than totally smooth skin, they can simply lighten the load a little. Chest hair, arm hair and leg hair can all be lessened. Additional treatments can permanently address any spots where they’d prefer hair didn’t show up at all, like the upper and lower back, love handles or the back of the neck below the hairline.

Laser hair removal is the only hair treatment besides electrolysis that allows for thinning, and is both less painful and less expensive than electrolysis. While results of laser hair removal are permanent, the hair growth pattern for most men will continue to change as they age, so future touch-ups may be needed for any stragglers that show up.
