6 Special Things For Laser Hair Removal To Men

Laser hair removal has become the most popular nonsurgical cosmetic procedure for men under the age of 35. However, there are some things you must know before treatment.

1. Prices Vary Dramatically

The costs of laser treatment depending on several factors including your geographic location, the area to be treated, the amount of hair growth on the area, the number of treatment needed and the type of laser used. During these credit crunch times, some also offer discounts. In general, the prices for men approximately between £150-230 ($250-300) per treatment on the back or chest. It can take 5 to 7 treatments depending on the color of your hair, the laser used, and the area treated.

2. Painful For Men Than Women

If men have thick hair and dark skin, you can experience some discomfort from laser treatment. However, it is nowhere near as painful as waxing or as daunting, the laser treatment feels like being pinged with tiny rubber bands.

3. Need For More Session

The session of laser treatment depending on the thickness of hair, skin color and hair color. This could vary but typically, 7 treatments are required to permanently eradicate hair and each treatment is usually spread out by around 1-2 months.

4. Not Good Idea On Men's Face With Darker Skin

It is not good idea on men's face with darker tone skin. Because you must have to many laser sessions and still not getting permanent results. The best hair reduction results are achieved with men who have fair skin and black hair.

5. Avoid Tanning Prior To Treatment

We advise you to protect the skin against sun exposure for at least 1 month before and after laser treatment. Increased melanin in the skin will compete for the laser energy intended for the hair follicle beneath the skin. The hair follicles won't receive enough laser energy to destroy them and it will make the laser less effective. The skin will get enough of lasers to be damaged. It is more susceptible to certain side effects including blistering or discoloration of the skin. Tanning can make the skin more sensitive. You can feel the more pain of laser therapy on your sunburnt skin. Sunlight also has a bleaching effect on hair and that lightening effect again reduces the effectiveness of the laser therapy.

6. Not Plucking, Waxing, Electrolysis For 2-4 Weeks

These methods can causes the hair root in the follicle to grow in to be thinner and lighter and not enough pigment which makes it a poorer target for the laser. So the laser might not be as effective. However, shaving is OK because it preserves the hair shaft and follicle. In fact, shaving might even be recommended and men must shaving the day before laser treatment (some clinics will help you do it). It helps in completing the laser procedure in less time and avoid to the risks of burned.
