Although the popularity of men’s laser hair removal has been on the rise since 2014, many men still have questions or concerns holding them back. We have the answers.
One thing is for certain: men have hair, a lot of hair. Whether you desire a completely clean look or simply want to reduce the amount of hair, laser hair removal is for you. Unlike waxing that provides temporary completely hair-free results, laser hair removal offers men the option of reducing hair for a natural look.
Why Laser Hair Removal?
Still questioning whether laser hair removal is “worth it”? After reading this, you won’t ever want to shave or wax again.
- It’s more cost-effective—results are permanent and only a few treatments are needed to meet your desired results. No more paying for wax treatments monthly, no more purchasing razors.
- Treatments are quick—depending on the target area a treatment can take as little 20 minutes.
- It is safe—with no harsh chemicals or pulling, the Elos Plus laser is the safest laser removal technology on the market for all skin types and tones.
- It can provide natural results—say goodbye to stubble, ingrown hairs and unnatural texture. With laser hair removal, you can decide how many treatments and hair reductions you’d like. As the hair follicles fall out naturally a few days after your treatment, the “in between” weeks are not noticeable as they are with waxing or as it is daily with shaving.
How Does It Work?
At Elegance Sculpting in Parksville, we utilize the powerful laser hair removal technology of Syneron Candela’s Elos Plus system. The Elos Plus uses bi-polar radio frequencies and light energies to target and destroy the hair follicle without impacting the surrounding skin. The laser penetrates deep into the dermis and heats the root-preventing future growth.
The length of your treatment depends greatly on the area being treated. Common treatment areas for men are the chest, back, underarms and groin. This treatment requires no downtime and can be scheduled during your normal daily routine. With any laser treatment, the area will be sensitive to direct sunlight for two weeks post-treatment. If covering the area isn’t possible, apply an SPF of 30 or greater every two hours. More aftercare information will be provided during your consultation or first treatment.
Why Six Sessions?
If you are looking to achieve complete clearance, we recommend six sessions with our advanced technology. As your hair has different growth cycles, it is important we target hair during each cycle for complete reduction. When the current hair follicle is targeted by the laser at the root, it dies and falls out a few days later; however, another one is already formed and waiting underneath. During your next session, that one will have penetrated through the skin and be targeted. The cycle continues until all five growth cycles have been targeted. That being said, you must not wax or shave in between sessions as it will disrupt this process and the success of your laser hair removal.
