What is Laser Hair Removal?
If you are tired of shaving away those pesky hairs, laser hair removal may be the answer! Laser hair removal is a noninvasive treatment that targets your unwanted hair at the root. Laser light is used to generate heat, which is absorbed by the pigment in the hair shaft, damaging the follicle to hinder future hair growth. At MDSkin, we use the gold standard hair removal laser on the market to provide you with superior results.
Who Can Benefit From Laser Hair Removal?
Men who have unwanted body hair that makes them feel self-conscious or limits their ability to wear certain clothing can often benefit from laser hair removal. Ideal candidates will have dark hair and light skin, as the laser light cannot be absorbed by light hair. A consultation with one of our MDSkin laser experts can help to determine if this treatment is right for you.
How is Laser Hair Removal Done?
During the laser hair removal procedure, the treatment area will be numbed with a topical anesthetic to help with any discomfort. Then the laser will be run over the treatment area. The laser light penetrates the skin and is absorbed by the pigment in your hair follicles. The light energy is converted to heat within the hair follicles and damages them to reduce hair production. Laser hair removal involves multiple sessions spaced at 6-8 weeks apart for best results.
Why Does MDSkin Offer Laser Hair Removal For Men?
Many men do not wish to constantly shave or wax. Unwanted hair on the face, back, and chest is very common for men. At MDSkin we offer laser hair removal to treat these areas that can have excess hair. Shaving is irritating and can leave the skin red and inflamed. Laser hair removal leaves skin smooth and has minimal downtime, and many men consider it a more convenient way to target unwanted hair.
What Can Be Expected After Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal only affects actively growing hair follicles, so it may take a number of laser hair removal treatments to provide optimal results. The skin may feel sensitive and appear red after your laser hair removal session, similar to the feeling of a sunburn. Most side effects resolve within a few days. It is recommended to avoid swimming or hot tubs for one week, as well as acid-based products and Retin-A or retinol products. The procedure is fast and accurate, so you can be back to your everyday activities after treatment.
