What Men Love About Laser Body Hair Removal

For many men, it can feel like “manscaping” is an endless struggle. Between shaving, trimming, and waxing, hair still grows back.

That’s why cosmetic surgeon and aesthetics specialist Dr. Mrudangi S. Thakur offers laser hair removal at two conveniently located offices: in Jefferson Valley and Middletown, New York. If you’re still on the fence, here are a few of the reasons more men are choosing laser hair removal. 

Prevent nicks, cuts, and ingrown hairs

You’re used to shaving, so you’re probably used to the occasional cuts and ingrown hairs, especially around your face. Ingrown hairs occur when hair that’s been shaved or waxed grows sideways into your skin often due to curly hair or dead cells clogging your follicles. 

While this may just seem like a mild annoyance, ingrown hairs and shaving nicks can get infected, leading to cysts and boils. Additionally, some people develop serious skin conditions due to shaving, such as folliculitis barbae and pseudofolliculitis barbae. Laser hair removal can prevent all of these issues.

Shave time and money off your grooming routine 

Over a lifetime, most men spend around 1,092 hours, or 45 days, shaving their beards. If you have other areas to groom, such as your back, chest, eyebrows, or ears, you can be sure this number will be even higher. 

On the other hand, laser hair removal sessions usually take around 30 minutes and most treatment areas require around 4-8 sessions. That means a total of around 2-4 hours. 

In addition to saving you time, laser hair removal also saves you money. While laser hair removal might require a higher up-front cost, it saves you money over a lifetime compared with the recurring costs of razors, shaving creams, and waxing sessions. 

Improve athletic performance 

If you’re a swimmer, runner, or cyclist, you probably already know that excess body hair causes resistance that can create drag and reduce your overall performance speeds. Many professional athletes opt for laser hair removal in order to reduce their air resistance and give themselves a competitive edge. 

However, you don’t need to be a professional athlete to enjoy the benefits of laser hair removal. Laser hair removal offers a number of benefits even for amateur athletes. 

For example, body hair traps heat, leading to more sweat production, chafing, and discomfort during exercise. Laser hair removal can help make your workouts more comfortable, giving a boost to your performance. 

Maintain your aesthetics 

Whether you prefer a sleek, hairless look or a neat, trimmed approach for your body hair, laser hair removal can help you easily maintain your aesthetics with much less time and effort. 

Sometimes men worry that laser hair removal will lead to a dramatically different appearance. Thanks to our advanced lasers, we can customize the laser strength to slow your hair’s regrowth, thin out your hair, or remove hair. 

Whatever your preference and wherever you have unwanted hair, laser hair removal can help you achieve your ideal look. To find out more, contact Dr. Thakur by calling the office that’s convenient to you. We also offer online booking.
