Laser Hair Removal for Men in Hampton Roads
If you’re tired of playing beast to your beauty, painful and inconvenient shaving and waxing aren’t your only options. For effective, permanent hair reduction, we offer male laser hair removal.
Over the course of multiple sessions, we can successfully get to the “root” of the problem by using an ultra-concentrated beam of light to destroy individual hair follicles and permanently remove hair in the treatment area.
What to Expect from Laser Hair Removal
Your laser hair removal treatment will begin with an in-depth skin evaluation and consultation to determine which options will work best for you. Laser hair removal can be safely performed virtually anywhere on the body, though the most common areas for men are the back, chest, and abdomen.
During treatment, we will use a state-of-the-art laser to focus a single color light wave directly on the treatment area. By targeting the melanin pigment of the hair shaft, this light effectively forces the follicle into a state of rest or hibernation, resulting in permanent hair reduction.
Most patients experience what feels like a small “snapping” against the skin during treatment. For men having larger areas treated, many feel nothing at all. After your treatment, you will likely experience pinkness, a sunburn-like sensation in the treated area, or slight swelling around the hair follicle, though these effects should resolve within a day or two.
It’s important to properly care for your skin immediately following treatment. Excessive heat and strenuous exercise should be avoided for the first 24 hours, and you’ll want to wear full coverage SPF before going into the sun.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?
To see noticeable results, it’s important to make sure each active growth cycle in the area has been targeted. This means that you should expect to have five to seven treatments total, typically spaced a few weeks apart. With each treatment, you will notice that hair that comes back is lighter and softer until it is removed entirely.
While you should enjoy your results for years to come, it’s important to remember that changes in your hormone levels, certain medications, and supplements can all affect your future hair growth. Some patients visit for “maintenance” treatments one or two times a year to ensure the area stays smooth and hair-free.
Am I a Good Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Traditionally, only people with fair skin and dark hair would benefit from laser hair removal. While a higher contrast between skin and hair tone does make things easier and more effective, advances in laser technology have opened treatment to a wider variety of people. As long as your hair is slightly darker than your skin, you should see good results.
