Hair Removal For Men
Hair removal is no longer just for women. The number of men who are interested in hair removal is increasing. There are more men going to dermatologists to have unwanted hair in some parts of their bodies removed. Usually, hair removal for men are for those who want to improve their appearance and looks, but, it is necessary for some. Many would agree that removal of body hair can improve one’s looks. However, in most cases, men just want to thin their hair, not remove all of it. Bushy areas that often become unattractive are those on the back, chest and arms. Some hair in these areas may be appealing, but too much can become unpleasant.
Many dermatological clinics are reporting that they are getting more male clients, which is a good thing. This means that more men are considering the importance their appearance and are willing, at the same time, to invest in improving it. More males are thinking that investing in their looks is not a feminine thing. However, it brings a question: what has driven men to become more conscious with their looks? It’s probably just a shift to being more liberal. Men and women today have more freedom to change their looks as they please. Some experts also believe that the media contributes to the change in men from cosmetically indifferent to cosmetically concerned and involved. For instance, Hollywood male celebrities and magazine male models usually sport spotless bodies, probably influencing others to lose their body hair, too.
There are different types of removal methods. All these methods can be employed on men as they are employed on women. The most common is hair waxing, which brings about a great deal of pain. For males with coarse hair, this particular procedure can be an excruciating experience. The pain a lot of clients get from getting waxed is enough to keep them away from clinics that offer this process. However, it is good for the removal of some amount of hair. For instance, eyebrows can be thinned or groomed through waxing. If your eyebrows are annoyingly thick, you can opt for an aesthetic procedure to shape it.
Male laser hair removal is a less painful option but it is much more expensive. Laser hair removal is more effective than waxing, because it kills the hair root. The laser light does not kill the hair follicle though. The follicle is where the growth of hair starts, so a new growth may still be expected. Laser removal lasts about half an hour per session. The use of laser is best for a complete removal or simply thinning of the hair on various parts of the male body. But, it works ideally on people with light skin and dark hair. It’s not recommended for blond men and women. Note that the cost of laser treatments could be ten times the cost of waxing.
Though expensive, laser removal has received good reviews from people who have tried it. Its effects could be permanent, but many need yearly maintenance sessions. Laser treatment is the most ideal, but most men do not need to get rid of body hair, but they can have it simply thinned, something that can be achieved by other methods.
