Over the past few years, men have become more concerned about the way they look. Grooming has become more important to men. This means that men are spending more time doing things like getting facials and even getting hair removal treatments. Yes, laser hair reduction treatments are becoming more popular among men. They want to minimize their body hair so that they can have a smooth appearance.
How Do Laser Hair Removal Treatments Work?
Laser hair removal treatments work by targeting the pigment in your hair follicles. Some people mistakenly think that these treatments work by burning the hair off of your body, but that’s not true. What they do is direct light energy to the area that’s being treated. The pigment in your hair follicles absorb this energy in the form of heat, and the hair follicles are destroyed.
You can think about it in the same way that a black shirt absorbs the sun’s energy as opposed to a white shirt. This is why individuals who have darker hair and lighter skin will have better results. Of course, this does not mean that men and women with dark skin or those with lighter hair cannot benefit from laser hair reduction treatments. It does mean that the technician will need to use special techniques or an individual may need increased sessions to receive the results wanted.
The Benefits of Laser Hair Reduction
There are a number of reasons why men and women are attracted to this treatment. The primary benefit is that lasers can produce permanent hair reduction. It’s important to highlight this point. Laser hair removal does not guarantee that the hair in the treated area will be permanently removed. Most individuals will experience complete hair removal for an extended period of time. However, most people will eventually notice that their hair will start to regrow in the treated area. The difference is that the hair growth will be drastically reduced and the hair will be a lot thinner.
Who Is a Good Candidate for This Treatment?
Both men and women are good candidates for laser hair reduction. Even individuals who have sensitive skin can have this treatment performed. It is a lot easier on your skin than shaving or waxing. You can opt to shave prior to the treatment. This is a plus because you do not need to let your hair grow out before you have this treatment done.
