Lasers, machinery, destruction (of hair follicles)… Laser for men could possibly be the most manly way to remove unwanted hair, and its effectiveness has seen the treatment skyrocket in popularity among men.

Laser hair removal is the most simple and reliable solution in permanent hair removal and while we’d love to claim it’s magic, the reality is laser hair removal is simply science.

It works like this: With lighter skin types, a cosmetic medical-grade laser transmits a concentrated beam of light directly into the pigment of your hair follicles. With darker skins, the laser is attracted to the follicle’s blood supply. The laser then destroys and stunts the hair growth with both modalities. Most importantly, this process is virtually painless.

Here are six reasons men should ditch the razor for laser!

Permanent hair reduction

Laser for men drastically reduces the unwanted hair growth to the point where you can stop shaving altogether. Re-growth is affected by hormones and other biological factors, which vary from person to person.

Fast efficient treatment

Laser hair removal is a quick lunchtime procedure allowing most normal activities to resume immediately. Although you will need lay off the sweat sesh for 24 hours post-treatment (hello rest day!)

Reduces ingrown hairs

Ingrown hairs often occur after waxing, shaving or frequent exercise that causes sweating and/or chaffing. This is primarily the result of the uneven breakage of the hair tips and/or drying of the skin which prevents the hair from growing out of the follicle normally. Laser hair removal weakens then kills the hair, preventing them from ingrowing.

Beard shaping

Laser for men can also be used to shape the modern man’s designer beard. By reducing the thickness and coarseness of the hair, laser neatens the beard line and banishes irritating collar rash or stray hairs on the neck and cheeks.

Laser for men reduces shaving rash

Laser hair removal is effective on all parts of the body and reduces the need to endure shaving rash. Because nobody needs that kind of negativity in their life!

Increases comfort in a hot climate

Hair helps the body stay warm which is a disadvantage in a hot climate! Miners, car mechanics, sportsmen and almost anyone who works in a hot environment will feel the benefit of laser hair removal.
