In the age of social media and competitive job markets, the smallest details can transform your image. Excess hair growth is a problem for both men and women, and it can prevent you from looking and feeling your best.

Laser hair reduction can be the ideal treatment for men struggling to maintain their unwanted hair growth. With a variety of treatable areas and ease of treatments, more men are choosing laser hair reduction to meet their grooming needs.

What Is Laser Hair Reduction?

Laser hair reduction uses the heat from a laser to gently reduce the thickness and amount of hair you have. A series of treatments is performed, during which heat destroys the hair follicles, disrupting the hair growth cycle. After three to six treatments, many patients stop growing hair completely.

Where Can Men Use Laser Hair Reduction?

Laser hair reduction can be used on almost all areas of the body. This convenient treatment is ideal for targeting the specific problem areas many men have when it comes to excess hair growth. Common treatment areas for men include:

  • Face
  • Chest
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Legs

Benefits of Laser Hair Reduction

Maintaining hair removal results can be frustrating and an inconvenience. Most men routinely shave, pluck, or undergo waxing. While these seem like easy treatments at face value, they require continual upkeep. These techniques can also result in painful ingrown hairs, acne, and razor burn. Laser hair reduction reduces the need for other hair removal techniques, and treatments are fast. Laser reduction leaves the skin smooth, and most patients experience little side effects. After a full treatment of multiple sessions, most patients won’t regrow any hair and don’t require upkeep.
