Best Options for Hair Removal

There are many reasons to be seeking hair removal for men. Most depilatory methods are marketed at women and solving women’s problems, such as bikini line waxes, depilatories for the upper lip, and other small areas. These methods can leave something to be desired when it comes to chest hair removal. Waxing is a lot to undergo for such a large area, and can easily lead to broken skin and ingrown hairs. Shaving is another option which is less detrimental to the skin but must be diligently kept up to avoid abrasive, itchy stubble. Depilatory cream (or hair removal cream) is another option that can work on large areas, but certain skin types find it to be a significant irritant. Laser hair removal treatment is a hair removal option that suits almost every man.

Everything Men Need to Know about Laser Hair Removal

  • How does laser treatment work?

A machine uses laser light energy to kill the hair root, ending growth in that hair follicle. The unwanted hair naturally falls out over the next few weeks. Killing the entire hair means that it is a long lasting treatment as opposed to shaving or depilatory creams, and less prone to ingrown hairs than tweezing or waxing.

  • Is it painful?

There is a sensation that some find uncomfortable, but before the treatment begins a cooling, numbing substance is rubbed into the treatment area that dulls the sensation.

  • How long does it take?

Not long. Depending on the area undergoing treatment, treatments can take as little as a minute. The average session is around half an hour.

  • Is it permanent? 

Laser hair removal doesn’t explicitly stop all your chest hair growing, it just kills the hairs that are growing and reduces the appearance of excess hair. You will likely need ongoing touch-ups every year. Most men who undergo this procedure are aiming for a thinning out of body hair, not complete hairlessness.

  • Are there side effects?

Generally no. The treated area should be covered to avoid sun exposure for several weeks afterwards, though. If sun exposure cannot be avoided, sunscreen should be worn, regardless of whether you have light skin or dark skin. If you have darker skin, there is a small chance that blistering can occur.
