When it comes to aesthetic treatments, many people only think about the treatments offered to women. However, there is a growing number of men who are choosing to look after their appearances by having treatments, from skin peels to nail treatments.
At Jeunesse Medispa, we are seeing more men choose laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted hair. So, if you are a man considering laser hair removal, what should you know before you choose this treatment?
Is the Treatment Right for You?
Laser hair removal usually takes a few sessions, so you should be sure that you want to commit to the procedure before you get started. There are a few things that you need to make sure of before your treatment. This includes:
- Your skin should not be sunburnt or tanned – this also means that you shouldn’t be using self-tanning products before your procedure.
- You should have avoided plucking, electrolysis or waxing for six weeks before your treatment.
- The hair this is going to be treated should be shaved before you undergo the treatment.
While some hair colours and skin tones can present a different challenge for laser hair removal, that doesn’t mean that they cannot be treated at all. In fact, the Nd:YAG is known for its effectiveness on all skin types.
What Does the Procedure Involve?
To remove the hair, the treatment uses a laser which targets a beam of high-intensity light down into the skin tissue to reach the hair follicles. This then damages the follicle and disrupts the hair growth.
The treatment isn’t overly painful, but it can become a little uncomfortable. In fact, the sensation is often described as being similar to the feeling of having an elastic band snapped against the skin. You will also be treated with cooling spray to help relieve a little of the discomfort.
It can often take a number of sessions to achieve the results you are hoping for, but some patients will start to see improvement as early as after the first session.
Where Can I Have the Treatment?
The laser hair removal treatment can be used to remove hair from all over the body. Many of our male patients choose to have hair removed from their backs, chests and abdomens, but wherever you have unwanted hair growth, we are able to treat it with our laser hair removal procedures.
Is it Worth it?
Many of our patients are concerned about whether the laser hair removal treatment is worth it. Of course, if we didn’t believe that the procedure was worth it, we wouldn’t offer it!
You can see fantastic results from laser hair removal treatments, and while they do not guarantee to remove every hair within the treatment area, you can expect to see a big difference after you have completed your treatments.
