In our day and age, smooth skin is the ideal for both men and women. Women are expected to always have smooth legs, to shave their underarms, and to even groom their pubic areas. Commercial advertisements, models, and actors feature men with no hair anywhere on their torso except for perhaps “just the right amount of hair” on their chests. Men are also expected to keep a clean-shaven appearance if they want to look professional and respectable. To help men maintain a smooth, clean look, laser hair removal offers a long-lasting solution for removing unwanted body hair.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser hair removal is a highly advanced treatment for hair removal. Ideal candidates have fair skin and dark hair since the laser is specifically designed to recognize the melanin (dark pigment) in dark hair. The pulsating laser identifies and destroys the melanin while the hair is in the growth phase. As the procedure can treat many hair follicles at once, laser hair removal can treat large areas of the body such as the back, chest, neck, arms, or legs. It can even treat the more sensitive areas of the chin and upper lip to remove facial hair for men. Most will need more than one treatment to achieve the best results, and results vary from individual to individual. On average, laser hair removal reduces 80 percent of hair growth over four to six treatment sessions.
Benefits for Men
Unfortunately for many men, maintaining the social standard of smooth skin can be quite difficult. As many as 90 percent of all men have to shave at least once per day. This daily shaving could be for the face, neck, chest, back, or another area where there is unwanted hair growth. It can become quite frustrating to have to shave every morning before work, to try to shave the back of your neck to maintain a clean hairline, and to invest the time shaving other areas before engaging in certain social activities. Laser hair removal can eliminate this frustration by removing your unwanted hair, saving you time and inconvenience on a daily basis.
