Laser hair removal has become popular among men since it can make grooming much easier. Using advanced laser technology, laser hair reduction services can remove hair and inhibit follicles from producing more hair. At Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care, we offer a variety of services including laser hair reduction. Here are some things to know about laser hair reduction for men:
How Does It Work?
During laser hair reduction, a specialist will direct a concentrated beam of light onto your hair follicles. The pigment in your hair will absorb heat energy from the laser which then disables the follicle and reduces hair growth. At Cirine Hair Removal & Skin Care, we also use a dynamic cooling device to improve your comfort during the procedure.
What Areas Work Best for Laser Hair Reduction?
Laser hair treatment can work effectively on most parts of your body, including sensitive areas. Most men interested in laser hair removal choose to have hair removed from the following areas:
§ Chest: Laser hair reduction can reduce the amount of chest hair you may have. It can make the hair more sparse and less crowded. You may need to schedule multiple treatments to manage hair growth over a long period of time.
§ Shoulders and back: Your back and shoulders can benefit from laser hair treatment as well. An expert can remove hair from these hard-to-reach areas, making your grooming practices much less strenuous.
§ Neck, beard, and jawline: Laser hair reduction can be a good option for managing facial hair while avoiding problems like ingrown hairs. Traditional shaving can often lead to ingrown hairs on the face, neck, and jawline.
§ Buttocks and pubic areas: Frequent grooming in this area can be time-consuming and potentially difficult. Laser hair treatment presents an alternative that can minimize the time you spend on grooming.
§ Underarms and legs: Many athletes such as bodybuilders, swimmers, and cyclists prefer laser hair reduction to manage hair growth on legs and underarms.
How Can You Prepare for Laser Hair Reduction?
In preparation for laser hair removal, you should avoid threading, waxing, or plucking the area you want to be treated. By plucking, threading, or waxing, you may remove the hair follicle we target during the procedure. You should shave the area the day before treatment to allow the laser to target your hair follicles more directly. Avoid tanning or excessive sun exposure since tanned or sunburned skin can prevent the laser from targeting hair follicles properly. Clean the area using soap and mild water beforehand, and avoid deodorants and creams as they may interfere with the process.
Who Is a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Reduction?
Our advanced laser hair reduction technology works well on most skin tones and hair colors. Laser hair reduction tends to be less effective on those with lighter-colored hair such as blond or gray hair. This treatment also tends to be more effective on those with a light-medium skin tone. One of our certified practitioners can build a customized treatment plan to help you achieve your laser hair reduction goals.
