Men’s laser hair removal treatments are steadily rising in popularity; in fact, it is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures in the United States. But the details about these treatments are still relatively unknown to the majority of the male population. This post fills the knowledge gaps about men’s laser hair removal treatments. This post will specifically cover the Beauty Bus men’s laser hair removal treatment. We will discuss how the procedure goes, its benefits, its potential side effects, who it is suitable for, and more. Let’s dive right in.
How Does the Beauty Bus Men’s Laser Hair Removal Work?
Laser hair removal sends concentrated light beams into the skin tissue. The light delivers therapeutic heat to the hair follicles and burns them. When the heat burns the hair follicles, the follicles lose their ability to grow hair. The controlled bouts of heat are hot enough to zap the follicles and not damage the surrounding tissues. The laser targeting system locks on pigment concentrations inside the follicles so you can be sure that it is precise. The treatment effectively makes the follicles infertile. Men’s laser hair removal eliminates the need for pesky upkeep on grooming.
How is Laser Hair Removal for Men Better than Other Hair Removal Treatments?
Men’s laser hair removal treatment utilizes cutting-edge technology to achieve more effective results. The technology allows you to take a rest from constant grooming – from regular shaving, waxing, or tweezing. Because the laser treatment locks onto the roots of the hair, you won’t have to worry about recurring hair growth from the same follicle.
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal for Men
Men’s laser hair removal is better than more traditional hair removal treatments due to the following factors:
● Precision: the laser targeting system locks on dark, coarse hairs while leaving untouched surrounding skin.
● Predictability: most laser hair removal patients report permanent hair loss on the treatment site after four to six sessions.
● Speed: the bouts of concentrated and heated light beams take only a fraction of a second and treat multiple hairs simultaneously. Every second, the procedure can treat an area around the size of a quarter.
Laser Hair Removal May Not Seem Entirely Permanent
The fact that the treatment burns follicles does not mean that men’s laser hair removal is permanent. You might still notice hair growing on the treatment site two years after getting the treatment. But the thing is, the new hair does not grow from the same follicles that the laser hair removal burned. After the laser hair removal therapy, your skin can still make new hair follicles that eventually grow new hair. But as far as the follicles that the laser hair removal treatment burned are concerned, the effects are permanent.
Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?
You might be wary of laser hair removal therapy because the word laser might imply burning your skin. But you don’t have to fear the treatment because the most discomfort it causes is only similar to a sunburn or pinprick sensation. The treatment is fairly comfortable.
Are There Risks to Men’s Laser Hair Removal?
Because laser hair removal locks on pigment concentrations in the skin, it usually is risky for people with darker skin tones. The laser technology can mistake normal skin with hair and zap it. Fortunately, the Beauty Bus men’s laser hair removal technology is safe for most skin types, tones, and areas.
The areas that our men’s laser hair removal treatment can target include:
Aside from being safe for people with darker skin complexion, our laser hair removal treatment is also safe for people suffering from hyperpigmentation and ingrown hairs.
What to Expect in the Treatment?
If you want to undergo the treatment, you should avoid waxing, tweezing, or electrolysis for about six weeks before the treatment. The laser technology targets hair roots, so you have to ensure that you don’t remove them before the treatment. Shaving, on the other hand, is perfectly fine and even encouraged. Shaving does not remove the roots of the hairs. Shaving removes pretty much all the hair except for its root. It is conducive to a more successful laser hair removal treatment because it can hit the follicles more accurately if no hair hinders its view. The aesthetician will apply ultrasound gel before the treatment to alleviate potential discomfort from the laser. Then, they will adjust the laser’s settings based on your skin tones, hair color, thickness, and location. You have to wear special protective glasses for your eyes.
The aesthetician will apply a cooling gel or device to protect your skin from the laser. The gel or device will also make it easier for the laser to penetrate your skin. Then, the treatment begins in earnest. The aesthetician will let the laser do its work. After the procedure, the aesthetician will give you ice packs, cold water, or anti-inflammatory creams or lotions to ease any lingering discomfort. For the next couple of days after the treatment, your skin might feel sunburned. Moisturizers and cool compresses help alleviate the sting. If you had the treatment on your face, wearing makeup is feasible unless there are blisters. Over the following weeks, you will notice hairs falling out. Consistently wear sunscreen to prevent the color of the treatment site from changing.
To get optimal results, you may need four to six sessions. Each session is spaced four to six weeks apart to give your skin sufficient time to heal. Consult a professional aesthetician to help you formulate the best laser hair removal treatment plan.
