Men: Have you considered laser hair removal?

Men: Have you considered laser hair removal?

Excessive hair is pain to deal with on a daily basis. Laser hair removal is a safe and easy way to reduce your grooming time.

For back of the neck thatch

Many men struggle with hair along the back of the neck that just won't be tamed. Even with frequent grooming, this patch of hair refuses to cooperate, and it may even grow faster than hair elsewhere on the head. This necessitates additional visits to the barbershop just to shave down this unruly thatch.

Laser hair removal is a quick and easy solution to this constant struggle. With just a few visits to your local Long Island plastic surgeon, you can be rid of this annoyance once and for all!

For unwanted chest hair

Some men like having chest hair, and others don't. It's a matter of personal preference. For men who would rather rock the hairless look, laser hair reduction technology just might be the answer.

Depending on your genetic makeup, your chest hair may grow in any number of interesting patterns, from the full bear rug to only around the nipples. It's important to remember that if you're not confident about your body hair, there is something you can do about it. Trimming takes time and may become more of a chore as you get older. Laser hair removal can get rid of unwanted follicles permanently.

For excessive abdominal and back hair

Some men may be fine with trimming their excess chest hair every few days, but hair on the back and abdomen is another story. Namely, it's hard to shave your back without a willing partner, and trips to the spa for a wax are painful and expensive. Likewise, the skin around your abdomen may be more sensitive than your chest, making regular shaving uncomfortable.

Let's face it – you probably don't want to ask your significant other to shave your back for the rest of your relationship. Laser hair therapy can remove the problem once and for all.

For your beard

Beards don't always grow in perfectly. Hair under the chin along the neck is prone to ingrown follicles, and hair on the upper cheeks tends to grow in patches. Laser hair removal can permanently solve these grooming problems, making your morning shave that much easier. 

Other considerations

Laser hair removal treatments may feel slightly uncomfortable, like getting a mild sunburn. Your medical team will use cooling techniques to reduce this discomfort as much as possible. After the procedure, your doctor may recommend aloe gel or hydrocortisone cream to reduce any swelling. Redness typically disappears within two to three days. Additionally, hair grows in cycles, so it may take more than one session to completely remove all active follicles.
