Think hair removal is just for girls? Think again. The male grooming industry is growing at a huge rate.
It is predicted that by the end of 2016 more than £1.6 billion will be spent in the UK on male grooming or ‘manscaping’ products.
The sales of body trimmers have risen by 20% in the last year alone. But what about those hard to reach areas like your back? This is where ProSkin can help by offering permanent hair reduction.
Nearly 40% of ProSkin customers are male and one of the most popular treatments is Laser Hair Removal.
After researching all the options available, we now only use the award winning Elite™ lasers from American manufacturer CynoSure.
The lasers are high-powered, dual wavelength systems, which means it is suitable for darker skin tones, including Asian and Black. It works by targeting the pigment in your hair follicles. The laser energy cuts the blood supply to the hair and this stunts the regrowth. This laser permanently limits each follicle’s ability to regrow hair.
The unwanted hair begins to fall out, leaving skin smooth.
Results are visible from your first treatment, but the best results are typically achieved after 6 to 8 treatments.
Over a course you will see a reduction in hairs, regrowth will be thinner and more sparse and skin will begin to feel smoother too.
The Elite™ is one of the most effective lasers for hair removal on larger body areas like full legs, back and chest, or even for full body. The laser can also deliver excellent results for smaller areas such as bikini/brief line, beard, sideburns, monobrow, upper lip and full face.
Why do you need several treatments?
Each hair follicle on your head and body is independent and goes through it’s growth phase called ‘Anagen’ at different times.
Only during the growth phase is there enough pigment (melanin) to absorb a sufficient amount of laser energy to destroy the blood supply and hinder hair growth.
When you visit ProSkin we ask you to return every few weeks, because new hairs will have moved into the growth phase and we will be able to successfully target them with the lasers.
