When it comes to aesthetic treatments such as laser hair removal, you may believe women comprise the vast majority of patients. After all, the cultural ideal of femininity is completely hairless from the eyebrows down. However, there are plenty of men seeking laser hair removal treatments for a wide variety of reasons.
Taming the Beard
Laser hair removal can be used to target very small areas, including the upper and lower edges of facial hair.
A man who has to carefully shave at the neckline or high on his cheeks to keep his beard groomed properly may decide to handle the problem with a laser.
Some men also decide to have their beards thinned to avoid a thick, bushy appearance.
Removing Back Hair
Some men are naturally very hairy and the hair can grow in places that can make backyard pool parties or a beach holiday uncomfortable.
Back hair, especially, is seen as unacceptable and it’s incredibly hard for a man to groom it away without help. Laser treatments can get rid of back hair once and for all, whether it’s just a few strays or a thick growth.
Shaping a Hairline
Men who wear their head hair short often like to keep the hair at the nape cut or shaved into a square or a rounded shape, leaving the neck hairless.
If you grow hair down the back of your neck and struggle to create a hairline with a series of mirrors, a laser can create the line permanently.
This method can also be used to shape a hairline in the front, if you have a low hairline or a pronounced widow’s peak.
Removing Patchy Chest Hair
Most men who grow uniform chest hair just leave it alone, but men who grow it in patches often resort to shaving and waxing to get rid of it.
While patchiness sometimes resolves as a man enters his twenties, others will never grow a “proper” pattern. If you would rather have a smooth chest for life without all the maintenance, laser treatments can help you.
Creating Two Distinct Eyebrows
Men usually have thicker, bushier eyebrows than women. Some even grow a unibrow across the upper bridge of the nose. For men who are shaving or plucking to achieve two eyebrows or to shape their brows, laser treatments may be just the right solution.
