  • Hair removal – common on the back and shoulders
  • Hair reduction – common on the chest or arms
  • Styling – common on the face

Men receive laser hair removal on various parts of the body, the most common are the back and shoulders, but men often get treatments on other areas, including the ears, nose, neck and chest.

Excessive hair in men can be a problem for a diverse set of reasons; as an athlete it may be getting in the way, or slowing your down, it may be covering a good physique and hiding those abs. It can also be embarrassing, or bring your confidence down, affect your relationship with women, or just stop you from enjoying certain situations like a hot summer day, or trip to a pool.

Of course these can all be addressed with other hair removal methods, such as waxing or shaving, but as well as being a hassle, they can cause ingrown hairs, be painful and just downright frustrating to do on a regular basis.

If you feel as a man that being totally hairless in certain areas would look odd, then hair reduction may be the right thing for you. It works in the same way and has the same benefits; but the goal is to reduce the quantity of hairs rather than eradicate them all entirely. That means the number of sessions would be less, stopping at a satisfactory quantity of hair rather than continuing on to no hairs at all. If you are interested in hair reduction, just ask your consultant about it.
