Laser hair removal for men is getting more and more popular and for a good reason. However, if you consider having body hair removed with the help of laser treatment, you probably want to know what results to expect, before you finally make up your mind. And so you should. In addition, you probably want to know if it hurts (it does, I’ll get back to that later), what it is going to cost you and – most important of all – if it’s a safe technique.
To find the proper answer to these questions, a solid start would be understanding how hair can be removed with lasers. Well, what it boils down to, is that laser hair removal burns the hair follicles right down to the roots. Sounds terrible, doesn’t it? Actually, it is. That’s why it’s so effective. It does more than just remove hair. Laser hair removal starts with focusing lasers on the skin. It gets attracted to the pigment of the hair’s follicle. Because all energy from the laser gets focused your poor little follicles get heated, and thus burn right to the roots.
So what is the greatest advantage to using laser hair removal? That is probably that you are able to remove hair from every part of your body, except for areas around your eyes. Looking for more advantages? Well, most important thing is probably that there are no real side effects to contend with. Sure, you can expect some redness as well as some swelling. That won’t last though. Most men look fine in just a couple of days later.
If you are wondering why you need more treatments for lasting result, remember that hair grows in cycles. In most cases, it takes three treatments to really get rid of unwanted hair. Let’s face it. The results of laser hair removal are impressive, to say the least. The results will not last forever but definitely for quite a considerable period of time. However, make sure to consult an expert before you turn over your credit card. Ask the expert to explain to you the different laser hair removal treatments and make sure you know how many treatments it will take before you’ll see the results you are looking for.
