Portraying yourself as a groomed, well-put-together man often includes keeping the more wild aspects of your appearance in check. In recent years, maintaining the growth of their hair has become an increasingly popular practice among men. Every year, hundreds of thousands of men utilize laser hair removal. If you are tired of trying to control unruly, thick, or wild excess hair, then laser hair removal may be the right procedure for you.
What Is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is an effective treatment for lessening the amount and thickness of excess or unwanted hair growth. Laser energy heats the hair follicles, damaging them and disrupting the hair growth cycle. Most patients see a noticeable improvement in the thickness of their hair growth after just one treatment. Following multiple treatments, most people achieve smooth skin with little regrowth of hair.
Why Men Choose Laser Hair Removal
Maintaining your appearance, including grooming excess hair, has become more and more important for men. From your personal life to your business presence, keeping a well-groomed appearance can be the secret to your success. Many men choose laser hair removal over other procedures because:
- It can be less painful than other hair removal methods such as waxing or threading
- It is performed less often than shaving, waxing, or threading
- It is safe to remove hair from the face, arms, legs, back, and chest
- After your treatment cycle, your hair will require less continual maintenance and removal
Is There a Long Recovery?
When people hear laser, they may assume the procedure is in-depth and can do a lot of damage to the skin. Unlike laser resurfacing treatments, laser hair removal doesn’t require a lengthy recovery period. Most patients can immediately resume their regular activities with only some mild redness of the treatment area. You shouldn’t expose the treated area to direct sunlight, and always use sunscreen when going outside.
