When people think of laser hair removal, they often envision women who are tired of shaving their legs or who are sick of the facial hair on their upper lips or chins. However, many men also struggle with unwanted body hair. Laser hair removal can help men with unwanted hair on their arms, leg, back, and chest or just about anywhere else on their body.
Excessive Body Hair
It is commonly accepted that men have more hair on their faces and bodies than women do, but that doesn’t mean all men want to have it. You may have an excessive amount of hair on a particular part of your body or face. For example, let’s say that you have a great deal of hair on your back or your chest, and you want to get it removed. You can choose laser hair removal instead of using at-home methods for a more permanent solution.
The Benefits over At-home Methods
You may wonder why laser hair removal is a better method than the options that you currently use at home. Shaving can leave behind razor burns, bumps or ingrown hairs. Not to mention, at-home methods are only a temporary solution. If you shave in the morning, you may have a great deal of stubble by the late afternoon. Depilatory creams and waxes can burn and irritate your skin, and tweezing is not really a suitable option for larger patches of hair.
What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal treatments are done in a series in order to tackle the hair follicles at all stages of growth. Each treatment will greatly reduce the amount of hair in the treatment area until all of the follicles have been eliminated. The number of required treatments will depend on your hair type and the size of the area being treated. During your consultation, our medical team will work with you to create a treatment plan that’s right for you.
At Pinnacle Dermatology, our laser hair removal treatments are virtually pain-free with no downtime or side effects. It is commonly noted that you might feel a slight snap, similar to a rubber band being snapped against the skin. Following treatment, it’s important to keep the treatment area out of direct sunlight.
While laser hair removal is more commonly thought of as a procedure for women, it can have great benefits for men as well. Pinnacle Dermatology offers a variety of treatment options that are tailored to the needs of our male patients. We can help you get rid of unwanted body hair with comfortable laser hair removal.
