WHAT SHOULD MEN KNOW ABOUT LASER HAIR REMOVAL?
If you thought, hair removal is meant for women alone; you’re not alone. And you couldn’t have been farther from the truth. More men, today, than ever before, opt for laser hair removal. Perhaps because it’s effective and precise. Or perhaps simply because waxing isn’t something they are comfortable going through. Well, they’re not wrong. After all, who could claim to love waxing?
But first, let’s get rid of the unknown, about getting rid of the unwanted hair; with the hottest technique of date. Laser Hair Reduction for men.
To shave or not to shave.
Prior to a laser hair removal treatment, it is suggested that you shave the area. Shaving helps in the accuracy of the treatment, as such the laser can reach the hair follicle properly, to give good results.
Stay away from direct sunlight, pre- & post- laser treatments.
Skin that has been exposed to the sun recently, produces more melanin. Melanin attracts energy from the hair-removing laser. This can cause an adverse reaction on the skin. Hence, preferably, sun-exposure should be avoided two weeks before & after laser hair reduction, to avoid reactions.
It doesn’t take too much time.
Getting your chest done, will take about 15 to 20 minutes. That’s it. Whereas the back will take about 30 minutes to complete. Your technician will draw a grid to ensure the entire area gets treated. Post laser hair removal treatment, a soothing cream or aloe will be applied to the treated area, in order to alleviate redness and inflammation. It’s kind of like having a mild sunburn.
Men Can Get Laser Hair Removal Anywhere.
Beard. back, neck, arms, even full body? Men can get laser hair removal just about anywhere they want. It’s completely a personal choice. The most popular areas tend to be the chest and back, and the off-limits areas are the eyes. Men can use laser hair removal for beard, moustache or sidelock shaping; or getting rid of hair in specific areas on the body.
To be able to get the best results we recommend that you attend your appointments religiously, at intervals advised by your skin clinic. The timing of your treatments, dramatically influences the outcome; due to hair growth patterns. Hence, it is best to book a course of laser hair removal treatments, rather than erratic appointments.
