Women have endured hair removal treatments for centuries. In fact the Romans found body hair so ‘offensive’ that they would make flint razors to rid themselves of their fuzz; probably the reason as to why so many of their statues appear follicle free.
Throughout the decades we have waxed, tweezed, epilated and shaved for hours on end and so when Laser Hair Removal was introduced many of us rejoiced at the prospect of ridding ourselves of pesky hair and time consuming upkeep for good
Since their introduction however, it has become clear that it’s not just the ladies who are reaping the benefits of permanent hair removal. There has been a significant rise in the number of men who are undergoing laser hair removal treatment. And it’s not just the ‘Body Builder’ types that like to look smooth all over either.
Some of the reasons men have Laser:
High levels of testosterone
Some men suffer from an overabundance of hair due to their hormone levels. Hairy backs tend to be a particular source of embarrassment. Laser is a popular solution for hard to reach areas such as this.
Male grooming has become very mainstream thanks to the likes of David Beckham and Zac Efron. Many men don’t want a blanket of hair masking their Chest and abs (especially if they have been working hard in the Gym!) and some even opt to get rid of their leg and underarm hair too.
Ingrown hair around the beard and neck area can be painful and unsightly and shaving will only exacerbate the problem. Even though beards have become popular, a great deal of men prefer the clean shaven look. Many men opt to have laser as a permanent way to solve their ingrown hair problem.
Men who participate in Sports such as swimming and cycling often opt to remove their body hair in order to ‘streamline’ their bodies. For such large surface areas, shaving can be time consuming and seem like a never ending task. Laser is a lasting solution without the constant upkeep.
