Some guys have all the luck.  Other guys have all the hair.

If you’re a gentleman of the hirsute (hairy) persuasion, you’ll know what we’re talking about.  Having body hair is a human trait, but there’s body hair and then, there’s body hair.  It can be a problem.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably tried various strategies to control the hair.  Shaving is something you need to keep on top off, to prevent stubble.  Waxing?  Sheer desperation (because it hurts).

So, we’ve put together this post on everything men need to know about laser hair removal in the interest of making your life as a hairy guy a little easier.  Laser hair removal may be the solution you’re looking for.

Laser Hair Removal – Your New BFF

Laser hair removal has come a long way.  Its development has reached the point where it’s now relied on by millions of men and women to combat excess hair.

The laser used targets the follicle or root of the hair, under the skin.  Bypassing the skin, the laser disrupts the follicle’s life cycle, causing it to die and the hair with it.  Once the follicle is addressed, the hair doesn’t grow back.

No follicle.  No hair.

Why Do Men Do It?

Men get laser hair removal for a variety of reasons.  Body builders, as we know, prefer to be hairless to better display their muscle development.  Swimmers, to eliminate the velocity drag hair can cause in the water.  Like swimmers, cyclists will do anything required to shave a nanosecond off their times.

But aesthetics are at least one reason men want to eliminate excess hair.  When it’s on the shoulders, or the back, for example, they may feel self-conscious about it.  Or sometimes, men just feel that less abundant chest hair would be easier to live with.

Then, there’s hygiene.  Summer is a great reason to cut down excess body hair which can lead to odor.  When the weather’s hot, excess hair can also be a source of discomfort.

And laser hair removal can also help with problems associated with facial hair, like shaving.  Some men are prone to skin problems like ingrown hairs.  By eliminating the follicle in problem areas, you’re also eliminating ingrown hairs.

Does It Hurt?

We’re not going to lie.  There’s some discomfort associated with laser hair removal, but most of our guests report that it’s minimal, amounting to a sensation like a rubber band snapping on your skin.  For those who are more sensitive, though, there’s numbing cream to ease you through the treatment.
