Laser hair removal for men

Call it deforestation, manscaping or de-fuzzing. Whatever you call it, laser hair removal for men is gaining popularity in Raleigh and all parts of the country. Hair removal by laser, as opposed to waxing provides a permanent result without the need for unattractive hair growth between treatments. At Michael Law MD Aesthetic Plastic Surgery Center in Raleigh and Blue Water Spa in Raleigh, North Carolina, we see a significant number of men looking for laser hair removal. Professional athletes, bodybuilders, swimmers, cyclists, tri athletes and many others require a hair free physique. Other men simply like the idea of feeling more confident free of unwanted hair that makes them feel uncomfortable. According to a recent article in USA Today, men are not only waxing their backs, but also their bikini lines.
According to Newsweek magazine, many men are getting the equivalent of the Brazilian bikini wax. While some gay men have been waxing their bikini area for years, it seems that now many straight men are paying to have the hair of the nether regions removed - all of it! They say it's all in the name of vanity.
Many of our male clients have been removing unwanted hair for many years with methods other than laser hair removal. It is not uncommon for men to tweeze, wax or shave their eyebrows, ears, nose, hands, abdomen; you name it before discovering laser hair removal. Many athletes and bodybuilders tell us that one of the most time consuming and frustrating parts maintaining their physique for training is not the training, it's removing unwanted hair.
Many men report that the lasers we use at Michael Law MD Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and Blue Water Spa provide a treatment much more comfortable than waxing. A large spot size coupled with a patented cryogen cooling device means laser hair removal treatments are safe, fast and comfortable.
In some cases, men are looking for a reduction in the amount of hair and don't necessarily want to be totally bare. Some men who feel self conscious about the hair on their back, chest, legs, hands or abdomen are very pleased to see the reduction that two or three treatments might offer.
Your privacy is very important to us. While seated in our waiting area, one might assume you are about to receive a massage. We are very discreet about all services provided.

Best Laser Hair Removal For Men

We have had great success in laser hair removal using the GentleMAX workstation by Candela. This laser combines the treatment capabilities of the GentleLASE & GentleYAG lasers so most skin types can be effectively treated. The laser creates a beam of highly concentrated light that penetrates deep into the skin where it delivers a controlled amount of therapeutic heat. This light energy is absorbed by the pigment located in the hair follicles. The laser pulses for a fraction of a second, just long enough to destroy numerous follicles at a time and leaves the surrounding skin unaffected. Laser is the best method for permanent hair removal.

Hair removal for men

Hair removal for men starts with the question of skin type.  If you have light skin, Lightsheer laser (Diode Laser) would be an excellent choice for removal.  If your skin is darker, seek out a very experienced practitioner who understands how to treat darker skin types.  In this case the laser of choice would be a long pulse 1064nm YAG laser.  It works great and is safe in skilled hands on darker skin types.  Otherwise waxing, shaving, or electrolysis are the alternatives. 

Best Regards
