Lately, there is a new trend in men’s grooming that does not come with razors and shaving cream. is simply the new trend for guys who want to go hair-free from their necks and faces. They prefer to laser off the unwanted hair like the ladies who regularly go under the laser beam.
While many men think that facial hair is an opportunity for them to show their unique personal style there are others that are just over it. They grow tired from time and money spent shaving, as well as irritation from razor burns and ingrown hairs and decide to turn into a more permanent solution like laser hair removal for their face.
One happy customer from a laser clinic says that the morning routine fatigue was the straw that broke the camel’s back and took the decision to perform laser hair removal on his beard. He says :” I calculated that if I continue to shave everyday for an average 10 minutes for each shaving, 5 times per week and 50 weeks per year, in about 40 years I would have spent 9 weeks of my life shaving.”
How Does It Work?
The laser beam targets the pigments in hair, destroying their root. After each laser hair removal session less and less hair grows back, till there is actual no hair growing back. The feeling of the laser it is like a rubber band snapping on the skin, it is not too painful. Less painful than having a tattoo. (depending on the area).
Time Commitment For Laser Hair Removal
At least six monthly 15-30 minute treatments will be needed in order to have permanent hair reduction. Up to 12 treatments will be needed for thicker follicles.
Laser Hair Removal For Men Face Cost
One treatment for the cheeks or the front of the neck can cost about $125 to $250. A treatment that will target the whole beard will cost about $175 – $375. You can try and look online for special deals from clinics. If you buy a package of treatments they will usually come with a discount.
Facial Hair Laser Results
After having the laser treatments for the face the facial hair becomes finer and it is by far easier to shave (you won’t need to shave at all most of the times). Especially people who are prone to razor burn and ingrown hairs find a great relief from this kind of treatment.
What Type Of Hair Can Laser Treat?
Laser Hair Removal can work best on dark hair because the laser targets the pigment, so it will not work well on men who have gray or blonde hair.
Where Can A Man Start Laser Hair Removal?
If you have started to think to give up the razor, you may want to begin by removing the hair on the neck and part of the cheeks. Like that, even if you ultimately decide to keep your beard you would be grooming these areas anyway so you will not have any regret problems.
