Men's Laser Hair Removal is on the Rise
THE NUMBER OF MEN HAVING LASER HAIR REMOVAL IS GROWING FAST
There was a time when hair removal was something only women considered, but nowadays it’s a treatment more and more men are undergoing.
In fact, the number of men purchasing laser hair removal at sk:n rose by 15% between 2015 and 2016.
DOES LASER HAIR REMOVAL WORK FOR MEN?
There are many reasons men may want to undergo laser hair treatment, whether it’s saving time shaving or removing unwanted body hair caused by excessive testosterone levels. Laser hair removal can be used to treat almost anywhere on the body that unwanted hair exists.
Laser hair removal treatments also help transgender women to feel more confident and live their lives happily. Many of sk:n’s trans clients say that unwanted facial hair is a major hurdle for them to overcome before they can be the person they want to be. Reducing hair growth permanently, alongside hormone treatment, with a fairly pain-free procedure is an important step in the transition process.
At sk:n, face and beard hair removal are by far the most popular choice for men and transgender women – nearly 40% of treatments. Meanwhile, demand for full body and torso treatments has increased significantly in recent years.
Jasmine Goodger, Manager Designate at the sk:n clinic in Chiswick, one of nine sk:n clinics in London offering laser hair removal, says that her team has seen more and more men having laser hair removal “mainly for back, chest and beard shaping and getting good results. They are wanting their back and chest hair removed for comfort as it can get hot in a shirt in the summer if they have excess hair. The face is also very popular as laser hair removal helps to prevent ingrown hairs on the neck and gives a cleaner, smarter look.”
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL PERMANENT FOR MEN?
As male hair tends to be thicker, it’s important to keep attending follow-up sessions to achieve the best possible results. At sk:n, we recommend returning every four weeks for facial hair removal and every six weeks for body treatments. Even if the first couple of treatments appear to have removed the hair, additional sessions will help prevent regrowth as hair grows in phases.
In fact, visitors to sk:n have seen their unwanted hair reduced by as much as 90% after a course of eight sessions.
ENJOY LASTING HAIR FREE RESULTS AT SK:N
Laser hair removal has much longer lasting effects than other methods such as waxing and shaving and so offers much better value for money. All skin types can be treated, but the best results are often seen in people with fairer skin and darker hair.
The good news is, sk:n have been the UK’s leading laser hair removal experts for over 25 years. At any of their 45+ UK clinics, you’ll receive a confidential, sympathetic consultation and patch test that will help them ensure you achieve the best results.
So if you want to take the first steps to a new you, why not book a laser treatment consultation today?
