What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal for men is a cosmetic procedure that utilises concentrated beams of light (laser) to target and reduce unwanted hair growth on various parts of the male body. The treatment aims to achieve long-lasting hair reduction by damaging hair follicles, inhibiting their ability to regrow hair. Laser hair removal for men offers a convenient and effective solution for those seeking to eliminate the need for frequent grooming routines and achieve smooth, well-groomed skin.

Laser hair removal offers several benefits over traditional hair removal methods like waxing, shaving, or plucking. It provides longer-lasting results, saves time and effort in grooming routines, and helps minimise issues such as ingrown hairs and skin irritation.

At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics Melbourne, we offer laser hair removal treatments for men at both our Berwick and Camberwell clinics.

Frequently Asked Questions About Laser Hair Removal For Men

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal for men works by using concentrated beams of light (laser) to target and damage the hair follicles in the treated areas. The laser emits a specific wavelength of light that is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) in the hair follicles. This absorbed energy is then converted into heat, which effectively destroys the hair follicles, inhibiting or delaying future hair growth. The procedure is precise, selectively targeting only the hair follicles while leaving the surrounding skin unharmed.

At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics Melbourne, we utilise the Candela GentleMax Pro system 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).

What Areas Can Be Treated With Laser Hair Removal?

At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics, our comprehensive laser hair removal services cover various body parts, including legs, chest, back, arms, hands, shoulders, neck, anus, buttocks, and genitals. However, we do not treat areas near the eyes, including shaping eyebrows.

Some of the most common areas for laser hair removal treatment include: 

 

  • Face 
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Neck
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Shoulders
  • Underarms
  • Legs
  • Buttocks
  • Brazilian

Why Should Men Consider Laser Hair Removal?

In addition to general hair removal, the primary concern for men visiting our clinics include: 

Frequent & Painful Ingrown Hairs: Particularly for those with thick, coarse hair, these ingrown hairs can become inflamed and bothersome, especially for active individuals engaging in sports or gym activities. To address this issue effectively, permanently destroying the hair follicle through laser hair removal is the most reliable method. By preventing hair from regrowing, we offer an effective long-term solution to eliminate ingrown hairs for good. Say goodbye to discomfort and embrace smoother, hassle-free skin with our specialised laser hair removal treatments.

Pilonidal Cysts: Many men require special laser hair removal treatment for medical reasons as well. Pilonidal cysts are a common concern where hairs get trapped under the skin and conventional methods are ineffective, often requiring surgery. Our lasers can penetrate the skin layers and effectively destroy these trapped hairs, providing relief and a non-surgical solution for such cases. With our advanced technology, we offer a simple and effective solution for addressing medical issues related to unwanted hair.

Pain & Ongoing Cost Of Waxing: Laser hair removal for men as a practical alternative to painful and costly waxing. While waxing requires monthly sessions, laser treatments are less frequent. After 8-10 sessions every 8 weeks, up to 90% hair reduction is achieved. Maintenance treatments are needed just 1-2 times annually, addressing any new hair growth and maintaining results. This saves money and eliminates the associated pain of waxing. Embrace hassle-free grooming with our long-lasting and cost-effective laser hair removal solution.

Who Is A Suitable Candidate For Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is effective on various skin tones and hair colours. A consultation with one of our experienced practitioners will help determine if you are a suitable candidate based on individual factors.

Are The Results Of Laser Hair Removal Permanent?

The results of laser hair removal for men are often long-lasting, but they may not be entirely permanent for everyone. Laser hair removal targets and damages hair follicles to inhibit hair growth. Over multiple treatment sessions, a significant reduction in hair density and thickness can be achieved, providing long-lasting hair reduction. However, factors such as individual hair growth patterns, hormonal changes, and genetic predisposition may lead to some hair regrowth over time. The regrowth is usually finer and lighter in colour, making it less noticeable than the original hair.

During your initial consultation, our experienced skin therapists can provide realistic expectations and advise on the number of sessions required for optimal results based on your hair and skin type. The frequency of these maintenance sessions can vary from person to person, and we will tailor a custom treatment plan to achieve your hair removal goals.

What Is Laser Hair Removal Treatment Like?

During laser hair removal treatment, clients may experience a sensation similar to a rubber band snapping against the skin. At Victorian Cosmetic Dermal Clinics Melbourne, we prioritise your comfort and safety by utilising the Candela GentleMax Pro system. This cutting-edge technology includes a cooling agent to enhance comfort by pre-cooling the treatment area before the laser’s heat is delivered. To protect your eyes, we provide protective dark glasses during the procedure. With our advanced approach, you can enjoy a more pleasant and worry-free laser hair removal experience.

Throughout the laser hair removal treatment, our experienced therapists use a handpiece to treat specific areas, with treatment durations ranging from 10 minutes to 1 hour, depending on the size of the area. Your safety and well-being are paramount, and our highly trained professionals are dedicated to ensuring a safe and comfortable experience throughout the entire process.

How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Will I Need?

At our clinic, our focus is on delivering the best results possible. To achieve maximum, permanent results, we conduct laser hair removal treatments at the highest settings. Body treatments are scheduled every 8 weeks, while face treatments are scheduled every 4 weeks. On average, clients experience up to a 90% reduction in hair growth after approximately 8 to 10 sessions. Individual results may vary, with some requiring more or fewer sessions. Rest assured, our effective laser hair removal treatments are tailored to meet your unique needs and goals.

Can I Shave Between Laser Hair Removal Sessions?

Yes, you can shave the treated area between sessions. However, avoid waxing or plucking as these methods remove the hair root needed for effective laser hair removal.

Can I Undergo Laser Hair Removal If I Have Skin Conditions?

Laser hair removal may still be possible if you have certain skin conditions, but it depends on the specific condition and its severity. Some skin conditions, such as active eczema, psoriasis, active acne, or open wounds, may make laser hair removal temporarily unsuitable. Additionally, certain medications or medical conditions may impact your eligibility for the treatment.

Before undergoing laser hair removal, it is essential to consult with one of our qualified practitioners who can assess your skin’s condition and determine whether you are a suitable candidate for the procedure.

What Is “Manscaping” / “Mansculpting”?

Manscaping refers to the trimming, shaving, or removal of body hair on various parts of the male body. This can include areas such as the chest, back, abdomen, underarms, legs, and pubic region. The goal of manscaping is often to achieve a groomed and well-maintained appearance, reducing excess hair in specific areas.

On the other hand, “mansculpting” refers to the shaping or sculpting of facial hair, such as the beard or moustache, to create a specific look or style that enhances the facial features. Say goodbye to the irritation of frequent shaving and the accidental mistakes that can occur when rushing to shave every day. With laser hair removal, you can wake up and head to work in minutes, free from the hassle of trimming annoying neck stubble or dealing with imperfections.

What Are The Benefits Of Laser Hair Removal?

There are numerous benefits associated with laser hair removal for men, including: 

  • Long-lasting Hair Reduction: Laser hair removal offers long-term results, reducing the need for frequent hair removal methods.
  • Precision Targeting: The laser precisely targets hair follicles without harming surrounding skin, ensuring safety and effectiveness.
  • Reduction Of Ingrown Hairs: Laser hair removal can help reduce the occurrence of painful and bothersome ingrown hairs.
  • Improved Skin Condition: The procedure can lead to smoother and less irritated skin compared to other hair removal methods.
  • Time-efficient: Larger areas can be treated in a relatively short time, compared to traditional hair removal methods.
  • Customised Treatment: Laser hair removal can be tailored to individual skin types and hair colours for optimal results.
  • Minimal Discomfort: The procedure is generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort during and after treatment.

How Should I Prepare For My Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

For the best laser hair removal results, ensure the designated treatment area is freshly shaved before your appointment. Avoid bleaching, waxing, or plucking, as these methods remove the hair root needed for effective treatment. Additionally, we recommend that you refrain from sunbathing four weeks before and during your treatments to maintain treatment integrity. Adhering to these guidelines will enhance your laser hair removal experience and ensure the optimal outcome.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe?

Yes, laser hair removal is considered safe when performed by qualified and experienced practitioners at Victorian Dermal Clinics Melbourne.

Is Laser Hair Removal Safe For Dark Skin?

While laser hair removal is most effective on clients with light skin, our advanced technology allows us to cater to diverse skin tones. It’s important to note that some clients with darker skin may require additional treatments to achieve optimal results. Rest assured, our experienced professionals will tailor the treatment plan to ensure the best possible outcome for each individual.

Are There Any Side Effects To Laser Hair Removal Treatment?

Like any medical or cosmetic procedure, there are potential risks and side effects associated with laser hair removal. Common side effects may include: 

  • Redness and slight swelling
  • Erythema (red and bumpy looking skin)
  • Sun burnt feeling
  • Temporary heat on the area
  • Pigmentation changes where the skin becomes lighter and darker (RARE)
  • Crusting (RARE)
  • Blistering (RARE)

Side effects such as skin redness, mild discomfort, and slight swelling in the treated area will typically subside within a few hours to a few days. 

What Is Aftercare Like For Laser Hair Removal?

Immediately after a laser treatment, it is important to treat the area like a sunburn and avoid hot showers, saunas, exercise, sun exposure, and products with active ingredients for up to 1 week. It is also important to use a topical anti-bacterial, anti-inflammatory agent to soothe and cool the skin. 

Note: Hair may seem to grow back after 2-3 weeks (7-10 days on the face), but it’s actually treated hair falling out. Gently rubbing the area with a soft cloth or exfoliating after the skin heals helps encourage hair shedding. Healing times may vary, as responses to laser treatment differ among individuals.

What Is The Difference Between Laser Hair Removal and IPL?

There are many differences between laser hair removal and IPL, with the main difference being the technology they use. Laser hair removal employs a focused laser beam, emitting a specific wavelength of light that precisely targets melanin in hair follicles, leading to their destruction. On the other hand, IPL uses a broad spectrum of light, which scatters and targets various chromophores, including melanin in hair follicles.

While both methods aim to achieve hair reduction, laser hair removal is more targeted and effective for permanent hair removal, particularly for individuals with darker skin tones and coarser hair.
