Laser Hair Removal For Men: What You Need To Know

Laser hair removal is hardly an option for women only. Permanent hair removal is readily available to Beverly Hills and West Hollywood residents through The Kopelson Clinic, which absolutely includes male residents.

If considering laser hair removal, check out what you need to know first:

Popular Areas

The most popular areas for male hair removal include the back, shoulders, genital area, beard/neck, chest, and stomach. Men often want the hair thinned out on their chests and stomachs, with complete removal usually reserved for swimmers, cyclists, bodybuilders, and exotic dancers.

How It Works

Laser hair removal works by targeting hair follicles and seriously damaging if not destroying them. The light from the laser is absorbed by hair follicle pigment, which is why laser hair removal is best suited to those with dark rather than blonde hair.

Number of Treatments

Four to eight treatments are generally recommended to achieve the results you desire.

Hair Growth Supplements

Taking hair growth supplements is never recommended when undergoing laser hair removal, whether you’re a man or a woman! If trying to stimulate growth on your head, stick to topical treatments only, as biotin and other hair supplements will only counteract the effects of laser hair removal.

Hair Length

Your Beverly Hills dermatologist will let you know exactly how long your hair should be prior to removal, though about ⅛ of an inch is generally recommended. Too-long hairs are still removable, but the process will be a lot more painful. If hairs are the correct length, there’s little to no discomfort involved.

Beautiful Results

Laser hair removal is the optimal way to get rid of unsightly back and neck hair, too much chest or stomach hair, etc. Hairs generally fall out a few hours after treatment, though it usually takes a little longer for hairs to fall out after the first treatment, such as a day or two. Skin is left smooth and beautiful.
