Many men deal with extremely thick hair on certain parts of the body, and in some cases, hair where they’d rather not have it! When unwanted hair is present, men often turn to shaving, waxing, and other means to full remove the hair. However, these treatments cost time and money, and need to be done regularly to maintain the results. Instead, many men are interested in learning more about laser hair reduction and removal, which permanently reduces or eliminates hair on the face and body. At Skintology MedSpa of New York, NY, we are pleased to offer this service!
How does laser hair reduction and removal work?
Lasers are used in many areas of medicine today, and continue to be a way to address skin concerns. At Skintology MedSpa, our providers use a specialized laser device that is dedicated to damaging hair follicles while maintaining healthy surrounding skin tissue. When the hair follicles in the treated area are damaged, they will no longer produce hair. This, in turns, means a reduction in hair, addressing areas of very thick hair. Patients who want full removal of hair will need several treatments to treat all hair follicles in the area during the active growth phase of the hair growth cycle.
Where can laser hair reduction be performed?
Patients will often ask for reduction or removal of unwanted hair in areas such as the:
- Bikini line
How many treatments do I need?
With each laser treatment, the hair is reduced. Men looking to reduce thickness of hair in an area will require less treatments than an individual seeking complete removal of hair in the treated area. During a consultation appointment, our providers will advise men as to how many treatments may be needed to achieve the results they desire.
