Laser Hair Removal for Men
Unwanted hair is becoming more of a concern for young men across Melbourne who take pride in their appearance and who want to look and feel their best.
Until recently, the topic of men’s laser hair removal was a taboo subject, but now it is widely accepted as the preferred method for permanently removing unwanted hair from practically any part of the body.
Why should men consider laser hair removal treatments?
The most common concern and reason that men visit our clinics is because of frequent and painful ingrown hairs. These ingrown hairs particularly on men who have thick coarse hair can become very painful and inflamed and can be especially bothersome with active guys who play sport or frequent the gym. The most effective way to eliminate ingrown hairs for good is to permanently destroy the hair follicle by preventing the hair from growing back. Active men who are used to shaving large areas such as the legs, chest and back often are concerned with the amount of ingrown hairs this can produce. Effective laser hair removal treatment however is by far the best option to keep your skin looking and feeling smooth without the pain of waxing or the inconvenience of shaving.
There are also medical reasons that many men also require special treatment for laser hair removal. Pilonidal cysts are a common medical concern that occurs when hairs become trapped underneath the skin and cannot be removed by conventional methods and often require surgery. Our lasers however are able to penetrate the layers of the skin and destroy these hairs which can provide relief and a simple non-surgical solution for these cases.
Pain and ongoing cost of waxing
The other reason men should consider laser hair removal treatment is the pain and ongoing cost of waxing. Most men require a wax once a month, however when undergoing laser hair removal not only do you need treatments less often but eventually you may only need 1 to 2 treatments every year. Most of our male clients undergo a course of treatments (between 8 to 10) every 8 weeks, once we’ve reduced their hair by up to 90% they then maintain these results by coming in once before summer and once during winter. This helps treat any new hair growth that comes through as well as maintaining that 10 to 20 percent of hair that grows back. This not only means you’ll be saving money every month, but you also wont have the associated pain that you have with waxing. To find out the cost, click here.
Which areas of the body can be treated?
We can treat every part of the body including the legs, chest, back, arms, hands, shoulders, neck, anus, buttocks, and genitals. The only area we can’t treat is within close proximity to the eyes (i.e we can’t shape your eye brows).
“Manscaping” / “Mansculpting”? What is that?
Trying to sculpt the perfect beard, hair line or neck line can be tedious and time consuming especially given the rate at which hair growth occurs in men. For this reason, we are able to sculpt certain parts of the face, neck and beard to create your perfect look permanently. No more irritation from frequent shaving, and no imperfections or accidental mistakes when shaving each day. You can jump out of bed and rush to work in minutes without having to trim that annoying neck stubble.
How often do I need treatments performed?
Unlike many of our competitors, our aim is to treat you at the highest possible settings in order to achieve maximum, permanent results. That means we perform all of our laser hair removal treatments on the body every 8 weeks and every 4 weeks for the face. Usually up to 90% reduction in hair growth is seen after approximately 8 to 10 sessions of our effective laser hair removal treatments. Some clients require more than the average, some require less.

Our clinics that offer laser hair removal
The Candela GentleMax Pro system is a 755 nm alexandrite laser, which can treat a wide range of skin types. Although it can be used for a variety of skin conditions, its main application is for laser hair removal and does so by destroying the hair follicle rather than simply weakening it (which is what happens with other hair removal methods such as waxing and IPL/Diode treatments). Fast, effective and safe results mean that permanent hair removal is achievable using our world class lasers.
We have built our reputation not only on client satisfaction and care, but also on guaranteed results. Our experience is unparalleled having performed over 3 million successful treatments since 2005. All of our therapists are laser safety and Syneron Candela certified and we have qualified dermal clinicians as well as doctors and certified nurses on board to assist with your treatments to ensure you are in safe and experienced hands.
