Facial hair on men can be time-consuming and inconvenient to maintain, as daily shaving can lead to cuts, razor burn, skin irritation, and ingrown hairs. Whether you’re keeping a simple goatee, a full beard, or just trying to maintain your facial hair, laser beard shaping can drastically help you achieve your desired look.

So what exactly is laser beard shaping? Laser beard shaping utilizes lasers on the target areas like the neck and upper cheeks so you can sculpt exactly where you want hair to grow. With laser treatment, men can have a cleaner beard line without harming their skin. 

Laser Beard Shaping For Men

Men who are tired of experiencing razor burn or ingrown hairs caused by shaving but want to keep their beards sculpted are increasingly looking at laser treatment to remove unwanted face and body hair. Cosmetic laser hair removal is a practical method for resolving the problem as it can thin out hair by 70% – 85%. This makes it perfect for trimming your beard as desired and lessening the coarseness of the hair overall. 

Men can use cosmetic laser treatment on the tops of their cheeks, the stray hairs around their beard or mustache, and the neck where most ingrown hairs appear. Some men also opt to have their eyebrows done as well. Results may vary depending on hair thickness and density, as well as the skin around the treatment area. You can expect results to become evident around two weeks after the first session, although you will need to complete six sessions over 6 – 8 weeks for maximum effect. 

The great thing about laser treatments is that your plastic surgeon can really help you achieve the look you want for your beard while keeping the shape of your face in mind. Most results of laser beard and eyebrow shaping are well-suited to the patients and make them look polished. 

Tips For Permanent Laser Beard and Eyebrow Sculpting

If your planning to get laser treatments, here are some tips to ensure safe and effective beard or eyebrow sculpting sessions: 

Bring pictures to your consultation. Sharing photos and information on the style you want to achieve can help your provider manage your expectations and plan out your treatments accordingly. 
Shave the treatment area 24 hours before the session. Closely shaving the target area can help the laser target unwanted hairs more effectively. 
Apply topical numbing cream. Most patients describe laser sculpting to feel like rubber bands flicking at the skin so your doctor will recommend an ice pack or topical numbing cream to minimize discomfort.
