The short answer is yes – turns out men get just as bored of plucking, shaving, waxing and being hairy as the ladies do. In fact, the number of men going under the laser and having their fuzz waved permanently off into the sunset has skyrocketed in the last couple of years.
Of course there can be other reasons why men opt for laser hair removal – hirsutism, or excessive hair growth, can be caused by excessive levels of testosterone, genetics, age or ethnicity. Men who suffer from excessive hair may find their confidence knocked; while a beard is usually seen as masculine, hair on the back and shoulders may be less desirable. And why not get it removed? While back in the day undergoing a purely cosmetic treatment may have been viewed as just ‘not something men do’, changing attitudes mean men now have the freedom to do whatever they want with their body hair – and are taking full advantage of it.
No matter what your unwanted hair situation, the laser can get rid of it – from a tufty bit on your earlobe or toe to an entire back’s worth of short and curly. Even better, there’ll be no need to prove your manliness by undergoing extreme pain as, thanks to new technology, laser hair removal is now essentially pain-free. Which is great, but unfortunately means no bragging rights down the pub the next day. Sorry.
The location and amount of hair you’re looking to remove will determine how many sessions are required, but you can expect to need a few before hair regrowth stops completely. But hey, it’ll be worth it to throw out that hair trimmer/razor forever, right? And as for those waxing appointments, well – they’ll be nothing more than a distant memory.
