Laser Hair Removal For Men
- Written by Manisha Kumar
Are you like one of those Mediterranean men who are 'blessed' with lots of hair? Do you receive lewd remarks from women when you are in the swimming pool?
Well, if you are one of those, and have tried removing hair with waxing or threading and faced disastrous results, then you must have also suffered from immense pain or your skin must have broken out in spots.
Many people use hair removal creams to remove hair, but they offer temporary results. Laser hair removal for men is a technique that has become very popular of-lately. While your therapist at the men's grooming clinic may say it is painless, it is not entirely a pleasing experience either.
These days laser hair removal has become one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures. It can be performed almost any area of your body, right from the chin, to the chest to your toes. Though the treatment works just as effectively on all skin types and colors, the best candidates are those who have light skin and dark hair. This procedure helps removing almost 80% of your hair permanently.
For the treatment you first need to take a small test to check if your skin doesn't show any reaction. If the test is okay, your therapist will start you with a treatment that will include six sessions each at an interval of four to six weeks.
Cost of laser hair removal
Gone are the days when the treatment cost was just $300 per session. That was way back in 2009.
Currently, the laser treatment cost depends on a variety if factors. Removing hair from a smaller area like underarms or bikini will cost anywhere from $250 to $500 per session. Larger areas will cost you more. Laser treatment on legs may cost in the range of $600 to $900 per session. Now, laser hair removal for men may translate into multiple treatments. So on an average a series of treatment will cost you between $1,700 to $2,500.
What is better - at home laser hair removal or at a clinic?
This is an arguable question. According to a school of thought using these products at home is not a good idea if you are not professionally trained.
But if you buy a product like Tria or Silk'n SensEpil, it would be a one-time investment and cost you about $400. You can perform a number of sessions at home. Besides, you save a lot of money as compared to the treatment at a clinic.
Although there's an abundance of clinics and products of laser hair removal for men, the convenience and price shouldn't be the lone factors to determine your choice.
