Men have it rough when it comes to hair, and we’re not talking about a 5 o’clock shadow. Women’s health and beauty magazines have loads of articles about solving hairy problems. Men’s magazines, however, seem to avoid the issue of laser hair removal altogether.
I’VE GOT HAIR GROWING IN PLACES I DIDN’T EVEN KNOW HAIR COULD GROW! CAN YOU HELP?
Of course we can! Laser treatments are generally most popular on the
- Back, Shoulders, Neck
- Chest, Stomach and Arms
- Full legs and Buttocks
- Speedo (Bikini or Brazilian for men)
CAN ANY GUY GET LASERED?
Laser hair removal has traditionally worked best on people with light skin and coarse, dark hair. With the advent of the Syneron Candela Gentlelase Pro, however, we have been successful with people with all ranges of skin colours including Mediterranean and even Indian skin.
I’M AN ONLY-THE-BEST KIND OF GUY. WHICH LASER SHOULD I LOOK FOR?
There are a variety of lasers out there, some more effective than others. We use the Syneron Candela GentleLase Pro, which is considered the gold standard in laser hair removal. Men visiting Medical Aesthetic Laser can relax, knowing they’re in the experienced hands of our highly trained laser operators.
IS THIS GONNA’ TAKE LONG? I HAVE PLACES TO GO AND THINGS TO DO.
There are a number of factors that will impact the duration of your treatment (usually 10-60 minutes) and the number of treatments required.
DON’T TELL ANYONE I ASKED, BUT DOES THIS HURT?
We do everything we can to make our patients comfortable. The level of discomfort depends on
- Your personal tolerance
- The area being treated
- The texture of the hair
- The patient’s skin
MY HAIR IS THICK AND PESKY. HOW LONG WILL THE TREATMENTS LAST?
Laser hair removal for males is often referred to as permanent, but the truth is that some hair may grow back. That being said, 6-8 treatments can almost always produce a reduction of 60-80% of hair. For most of our patients, treatments for regrowth may be necessary every three to six months to a year.
IS LASER HAIR REMOVAL GOING TO GIVE ME A PAIN IN THE WALLET?
The cost of laser hair removal for men varies dramatically, depending on the areas you want treated and how many treatments you require. At Melbourne Aesthetic Laser, we never compromise on quality, even though we do offer extremely competitive prices. For example, currently we do a men’s full back for $149, you can add the shoulders for only $49, and we include a neck at no extra cost.
Lasers have transformed the world of excess hair removal, making the treatment more comfortable for patients and also more effective. Because of the power of the laser, the number of men now contacting our hair removal centre has risen steadily. If you’d like to join the growing number of men who are “manscaping” with the help of laser light, please contact the Medical Aesthetic Laser Clinic in Melbourne on 1800 052 737 to schedule a free consultation.
