1. It is precise.
Lasers specifically target dark, coarse hairs, leaving the surrounding skin undamaged.
2. It is fast.
While every pulse of the laser only lasts for a fraction of a second, it can eliminate as many unwanted hairs. A small area of unwanted hair such as the upper lip can be treated in less than a minute, while a large area such as the back can be treated to an hour.
3. It is predictable.
After an average of three to seven treatments, most patients achieve permanent hair loss.
Who benefits from laser hair removal?
There are many reasons why people undergo laser hair removal. For some, getting rid of the unwanted hair frees them from embarrassment and increases their self-esteem.
Laser removal also benefits the following:
1. Those who have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS
PCOS is a common endocrine system disorder among women of reproductive age. One of the symptoms of PCOS is the excess of the male hormone called “androgen”. The abundance of androgen can result to excessive facial and body hair, also known as “hirsutism”.
2. Those going through the menopause
Similar to PCOS, menopause can also cause excessive hair growth as a result of the hormonal changes.
3. Those who have ingrown hair
An ingrown hair occurs when a tightly curled hair is shaved, tweezed or waxed, and the hair grows back into the skin. This ingrown hair can cause tiny bumps, inflammation, and pain in the area where the hair was removed.
Laser hair removal treatments also benefit both women and men. While a majority of those who have undergone laser hair removal treatments are women, there’s a growing number of men who are availing this treatment.
“More men continue to pursue cosmetic procedures, accounting for nearly 1 in 10 procedures performed in the United States. They are just as likely to pursue surgical procedures as nonsurgical, and are readily embracing numerous tactics to ‘manscape’ and ‘mantain,’ including laser hair removal …,” the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery said.
Laser Hair Removal for Men
Taking care of your apprearance has never been easier. From full body hair removal to individual treatments, including permanent removal of facial hair, armpit hair and back and chest hair.
Frequently Asked Questions
Which part of my body can I have laser hair removal?
It’s possible to remove unwanted hair through the use of laser in almost any part of the body, except the eyelid or surrounding areas. The reason that laser hair removal isn’t recommended for the eyelid or surrounding areas is due to the likelihood of severe eye injury. Common laser hair removal treatment areas include upper lip, chin, underarms, bikini line and legs.
Will my hair and skin color influence the success of laser hair removal?
In the past, laser hair removal was most effective in individuals who have light skin and dark hair. Advances in the laser technology have made this distinction obsolete. Now, all people, regardless of skin color, can avail of laser hair removal treatments.
Hair color, however, influences the success of laser hair removal. This medical procedure isn’t recommended to those who have blond, white, gray or red hair. The reason for this is that the laser can’t “see” light-colored hair.
When will I see the results?
The results of the laser hair removal treatment vary from person to person. The thickness and color of your hair, the color of your skin and the area treated all affect the results. For the first treatment, you can expect a 10% to 25% reduction of unwanted hair.
For permanent hair removal, you need three to seven laser treatments. After a series of appropriate treatments, most people don’t see any hair on the treated area for several months or even years. When the unwanted hairs grow back after a long period of time, these tend to be less in number, and the hairs also tend to be lighter in color and finer.
Will I feel pain during and after the treatment?
During the treatment, you’ll only feel something similar to a flick of an elastic band. After the treatment, short-term discomforts such a swelling and redness are possible. These minor discomforts normally disappear after several hours. Most people return to their everyday activities after a few hours after the treatment. Even as the swelling and redness subside, it’s important to:
- Avoid direct sunlight;
- Stay away from indoor tanning equipment such as tanning bed or sun lamp; and
- Follow the instructions of your dermatologist.
