Getting Selfie Ready: Laser Hair Removal for Men

Ten or so years ago it seemed like the only people who were getting laser hair removal were women and young girls who wanted to target areas like their bikini line and underarms. However, nowadays it can seem like that no matter where you turn, people everywhere are expressing their love and appreciation for living a hair free lifestyle— men included. Whether you’re a male who suffers from excessive back hair, chest hair, or simply would like to look a little smoother, than laser hair removal is something you should look into.

Back Hair
Excessive back hair is enough to make anybody want to run and hide for cover. If you suffer from excessive back hair and things like a trip to the beach with friends and family is enough to make you want to hide under a rock, then laser hair removal is the perfect procedure for you. In just a handful of treatments, you will start to notice that your back is not only hair free but that it’s smoother as well— leaving you with the confidence you need to hit the beach.

Laser Hair RemovalChest Hair
Many men who have excessive chest hair end up shaving it in order to give themselves a smoother looking complexion. However, chest hair can quickly grow back and shaving it can turn into yet another task to do every morning in the shower before work. Get your chest selfie ready and get laser hair removal done. By targeting each and every hair follicle, you won’t have to worry about shaving your entire chest ever again! Just make sure that in between treatments you aren’t tweezing any excess hair, because this can make it harder for the laser to target the next time around.

Smoother Body Overall
Some men just hate having hair on any part of their body— if you’re one of those men, you’re in luck because laser hair removal can target legs, arms, chest, underarms, back, and even your neck. Simply schedule a full body consultation with a medical professional or aesthetician in order to decide which parts of your body you want to target.

3 Reasons to Consider Laser Hair Removal

white-bikiniOther than being deemed a “hairy monster” by some of your most beloved friends and family members, there are other reasons to consider getting laser hair removal done. And although there are many aesthetic reasons to get laser hair removal, there are also some more medically based reasons as well. For instance, if you deal with excessive razor bumps or rashes caused by shaving, get ingrown hairs that can get infected, or if you simply can’t seem to get a close enough shave, then you might want to consider getting laser hair removal. Read on to learn more.

Razor Bumps and Rashes

A lot of men and women suffer from the constant skin irritation caused by shaving every day. Razor bumps and rashes can occur on the underarms, bikini area, and even around the neck and face. Not only is the appearance of these bumps and rashes a little bit unsightly but the burning and itching sensations that accompany them are less than comfortable. However, by undergoing laser hair removal treatments, you can get rid of your hair and allow your skin to both relax and heal— ultimately eliminating that constant irritation that causes bumps and rashes.

Ingrown Hairs

Ingrown hairs are typically caused by soap or shave gel getting lodged in the hair follicle, causing irritation to occur. And ingrown hairs aren’t just unsightly to look at but they can be quite painful as well, and even worse, if you’re like most people and tend to pick at your ingrown hairs, they might get infected. If you suffer from ingrown hairs, laser hair removal will help to eliminate this problem. Although they will still be there during the first couple of treatments, after a while they will disappear and leave you with flawless looking skin that is smooth to the touch.

Close Enough Shave

If you are like those individuals who seem to shave one second and the hair reappears the next, don’t worry: you aren’t a chia pet. But you likely aren’t getting a close enough shave. Due to the different directions in which your hair grows in, it can be hard sometimes to get a close enough shave. However, laser hair removal zaps the hair right at the follicle, leaving you with not having to worry about close shaves any longer.
