Laser Hair Removal For Men is Gaining Popularity

Watch out ladies, laser hair removal is gaining in popularity with men and is not just a women-only treatment any longer. Known to be the top non-surgical procedure among both men and women under the age of 35, laser hair removal is becoming increasingly common among men.

Why Should Men Get Laser Hair Removal?

Men choose to get laser hair removal treatments for a number of reasons, but the ultimate goal is obviously the same- to permanently remove unwanted hair. Many male athletes look to laser hair removal to remove hair that is slowing them down or hindering them from optimal performance. Most cyclists, swimmers, and bodybuilders are some of the many athletes that commonly get laser hair removal so they don’t have to regularly shave or wax.

Laser Hair Removal For Men?

Another reason that men should choose laser hair removal to get rid of unwanted hair is that it provides them with a higher level of confidence. Nothing gives you confidence more than clear and smooth skin. Most men have a hair dilemma; they are covered with the stuff and shaving or waxing can get tedious and expensive if done on a regular basis. For a well-groomed and cleaner look without the hassle of razor burn, nicks, red bumps, or pain from waxing; men choose the easiest and smartest choice- laser hair removal. Most men deal with unwanted and excessive hair on their backs, chest, neck, legs and abdomen. For this reason, laser hair removal has become growing in popularity with men who are sick of dealing with barbaric, expensive, and tedious methods of hair removal that aren't even permanent. Men who are over waxing, shaving, electrolysis, tweezing, or trimming, jump on the laser hair removal wagon – and for good reasons too!

Why is Laser Hair Removal the Best Option For Removing Unwanted Hair?

Unlike many hair removal methods currently out there, laser hair removal removes and reduces the growth of unwanted hair. Forget shaving or waxing, men and women alike can confidently go to the beach without shaving or waxing and know that their skin will be smooth and hair-free. Laser hair removal is very precise unlike some other methods. The laser selectively targets darker hair while leaving your skin unharmed. Many methods of waxing or shaving leaves skin with red bumps, rashes, or burns. Laser hair removal is also quick and easy. Each laser pulse takes a fraction of a second and can treat many hairs at the same time – unlike tweezing or electrolysis. Laser hair removal also provides each patient with lasting results with an average of about 3-5 treatments. No wonder men are saying goodbye to traditional methods of hair removal and now opting for a more permanent method – laser hair removal. Keep in mind that when you choose laser hair removal, the results depend on your skin color and hair color. So, first consult a professional to determine if you are a good candidate for laser hair removal. Usually patients with lighter skin and darker hair have the best results since the lasers can pick up on the hair pigments easily.

Are you heading back to school this fall or maybe just looking to turn heads with a freshened up look? Small and simple steps can make you look revitalized over night. Is your skin looking a bit dull, your hair style not much of a style anymore, or your smile not something to smile about? We have got you covered and have beauty tips and techniques that will make your peers do a double take (in a good way of course!).

Ways To Improve Your Look, Instantly!

  • New Haircut: Just a trim can freshen up your look and make you look more polished. But you can be bold and go for an all over new hair style. Be bold and cut it all off or get layers and bangs to totally transform your look. A great hair cut is essential to looking your best. Make sure you choose a cut works best with your hair type and face shape. For a head turning trendy look, add streaks of pastel color to your lovely locks.
  • Bright Smile: A white smile will immediately draw attention to you and give you confidence. For immediate results, get professional help to quickly whiten your smile. Or you could opt for using baking soda when you brush your teeth for more of a gradual teeth whitening.
  • Dress Your Size: For some reason, women think that if they can squeeze into a piece of clothing then it fits. To instantly improve your appearance, dress your size! Wear clothing that doesn’t make you to bulge out of them or aren’t too short. Choose longer tops that elongate the body, and wear pants that don’t leave you with a “muffin top,” no matter what the number on the tag may read!

Facts about Laser Hair Removal

On September 26th, 2012, posted in: Los Angeles Beauty Blog by 0 Comment

To get rid of unwanted hair, we sometimes turn to shaving, waxing and even threading to get the job done. Unfortunately, these only provide a temporary solution to the problem and cause the hair to grow back in a short amount of time. Laser hair removal on the other hand has been known to get rid of unwanted hair for longer periods of time and sometimes even permanently. Laser hair removal is performed by a licensed professional who uses a device that sends a high energy light beam to the hair follicle to destroy it. An article in W Network provides the following informative facts about laser hair removal:

  • What areas of the body can be treated?
  • Laser hair removal can be performed on almost any part of the body. Areas like legs, bikini, arms, face, upper lips, chin and underarms are some of the body parts on which laser hair removal is preformed.
  • When do results start to show?
  • Laser hair removal is a fast and effective way to achieve permanent hair removal. Results usually start to show after as little as three treatments.
  • Avoid sunlight to your skin before getting the treatment.
  • Use sunscreen at least two weeks before getting the treatment. If you’ve had contact with the sun and have not used sunscreen make sure to let your aesthetician know.
  • Protect your skin after the treatment
  • Make sure to protect your newly treated skin by applying sunscreen on a daily basis. Since skin is more sensitive after treatment, sunscreen is recommended to keep any problems from occurring.
Laser hair removal is a fast and almost painless method of hair removal. Unlike most other methods used to remove unwanted hair, laser hair removal provides long lasting, and permanent results.

What to Do After Your Laser Hair Removal Treatment

On December 28th, 2011, posted in: Laser Hair Removal Glendale Blog by 0 Comment

Laser hair removal is fast, and gets the job done...but what next? What happens after the treatment? Here are a few things to expect and do after your laser hair removal treatment:

  • Expect Redness/Swelling: It is normal to expect redness, swelling, and irritation after a laser hair removal treatment. This will last from a few hours to up to about two days. This is good because it shows that the treatment was successful is killing the hair follicles. If the stinging becomes too uncomfortable,placing ice on the treated area or taking a cold bath will soothe the stinging sensation.
  • Exfoliate and Moisturize: Exfoliating and moisturizing are super important after a laser hair removal treatment for long-lasting and beautiful results. Exfoliating encourages the trapped, dead hair to come out by scrubbing away the dead skin cells. It is recommended to use some kind of body scrub because it makes the process of eliminating the dead hair faster. Moisturizing keeps the skin in balance and also encourages the dead hair to come out.
  • Track Your "Hair-Free" Period: After the dead hair has fallen out, it is your "hair-free" period. It is smart to track this period, because it helps to know when your next hair growth cycle is. By knowing this, you can know when to schedule and space out your follow-up hair removal treatments.
To set up an appointment for Laser Hair Removal, call Touch of Class Med Spa and Laser Center at (818) 502-3636 or book an appointment online. They have the newest technology in laser hair removal, the LightSheer® Duet by Lumenis, making your hair removal process quicker, easier, and more comfortable than ever! Touch of Class Med Spa and Laser Center is located in Glendale, CA and provides amazing service, affordable prices, and an unforgettable experience!
