Are you contemplating laser hair removal but uncertain about its suitability for men?

Gone are the days when hair removal was predominantly associated with women. With numerous methods available, laser hair removal has gained prominence as a highly effective and enduring option for men.

Whether you’re seeking relief from painful ingrown hairs, aiming to simplify your grooming routine, or simply prefer the aesthetic and tactile appeal of hair-free skin, laser hair removal could be the answer to your grooming needs.

How does Laser Hair Removal work?

Laser hair removal involves directing a concentrated beam of light through a laser onto areas of the body with unwanted hair. The pigment, or melanin, in the hair absorbs the light, which then heats up the skin, causing damage to the follicles.

This process either prevents further hair growth or significantly delays the growth process.

While it’s commonly perceived that laser hair removal is primarily sought after by women, in some cases, the procedure can be more effective for men, particularly on the face due to the higher density of oil glands, which facilitates better healing.

Why should men consider Laser hair removal?

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal in Men:

Long-Lasting Results:

  • Laser hair removal offers men long-lasting reduction in hair growth, with the potential for hair not to grow back.

Reduced Ingrown Hair:

  •  Men prone to ingrown hairs from shaving or waxing can benefit from laser hair removal, which can reduce their occurrence.


  • Laser hair removal is a quick and efficient method for removing hair from large areas, with treatment times ranging from 15 minutes to an hour.

Improved Confidence:

  • Laser hair removal can boost confidence and self-esteem by providing a long-term solution to unwanted hair.


  • Laser hair removal can enhance hygiene by reducing excess hair in certain areas, potentially decreasing odours and irritation.

Does the process hurt?

The degree of discomfort experienced during laser hair removal for men can vary depending on factors such as individual pain tolerance, the specific treatment area, and the type of laser employed.

While some men may only feel mild discomfort, others may perceive a more intense sensation.

To mitigate discomfort, dermatologists often utilize cooling devices to lower the skin’s temperature during the procedure.

How can you prepare for the Laser Treatment?

    • Minimize sun exposure and avoid tanning for at least four weeks before your treatment to reduce the risk of complications.

    • Shave the treatment area one or two days prior to your session to enhance the laser’s effectiveness by ensuring it targets the hair follicles accurately.

    • Refrain from plucking, waxing, or electrolysis for at least four weeks beforehand to ensure adequate hair growth for the laser to effectively target.

How Long Does It Take To See Results?

Achieving optimal results with laser hair removal requires targeting the hair at specific stages of its growth cycle, necessitating multiple treatment sessions.

Typically, we recommend 8 to 12 sessions spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart to target various areas of the body effectively.

With this, you can make a decision on your plans for laser hair removal.
