Laser Hair Removal for Men faqs
1) Why do men get laser hair removal?
Facial and body hair is part of the masculine image. But too much body hair can be undesirable visually and functionally. Nothing is more embarrassing than having hair all over your back, neck, chest and arms. Then, there’s overly thick eyebrows, neck or ear hair! Most men who are looking for laser hair removal would prefer less shaving or waxing, which only offers temporary relief.
2) What kind of laser does Belmont Plastic Surgery use?
The Vectus Laser by Cynosure is used for laser hair removal for men. With Vectus’ dynamic cooling, you will be kept comfortable during the procedure. Even a large area like the back can be treated in less than ten minutes. The Vectus is deployed in large areas such as the chest, back and arms. Highly versatile, the Vectus can accommodate all skin types and hair colors.
3) What to expect with your consultation:
Come in with questions to discuss your concerns for the procedure. We will explain the hair removal treatment plan and what to expect from the procedure, including the recovery period.
4) What happens during the laser hair removal procedure?
Laser hair removal does not require topical anesthesia. Numbing agents are available if you need them for comfort. Before using the laser hair removal device, your technician will cut down the hair to a very short height to ensure the most efficient, accurate and best result. Eyes are covered with gear for protection. You will receive a layer of soothing gel on the skin surface before the laser starts to clear the unwanted hair away. It normally takes several treatments to achieve total hair removal.
5) Is there any recover necessary after laser hair removal for men?
There may be some minor discomfort after the treatment. You can apply an ice pack to the area for relief. Any redness or tingling can occur from a mild sunburn and goes away within a few hours. We recommend you avoid exposure to the sun while your skin recovers from the procedure. You should be able to resume your regular activities immediately.
6) What results can I expect from laser hair removal?
Your laser hair removal results will depend on the area and the amount of hair you decide to remove. Laser treatments are repeated several times, usually within four sessions, for maximum result. An appointment for any touch up follows six to 12 months later.
