Men Have Laser Hair Removal

Some people think that laser hair removal on the underarms is only for women.  On the contrary, more and more men are opting to have hair removal laser treatment performed on their underarms. Our next series of articles will take a look at some of the reasons why the trend of men seeking laser hair removal center services to get rid of and/or reduce armpit hair is on the rise. Let’s get started.

Cleaner Look

Some men seek laser hair removal on their underarms because they prefer to have a cleaner look when wearing sleeveless shirts or when wearing no shirt at all. This can be achieved by fully removing all of the hair, or by simply reducing the hair, depending on preference. The underarm can be treated as a single area, in conjunction with a larger area (i.e., arms, chest, etc.), or as part of full body hair removal treatment.

Helps Lessen Body Odor

Body odor is caused by sweat mixing with bacteria. Wet hair takes a longer time to dry than wet skin, so when hair becomes sweaty, it holds the odor for a longer period of time. Hair removal laser treatment of the underarms will not resolve body odor all together, but it will reduce it.

Our next article will cover more reasons why men choose to have hair removal laser treatment performed on their underarms.

Women’s Facial Hair

All women have facial hair. However, when it becomes excessive, course, and/or thick, it can be difficult to manage and cause issues with self-confidence. One solution to this problem is laser hair removal.

We are continuing our series of articles discussing some of the most common causes of excess facial hair in women. Our previous article discussed how genetics and hormones can cause an increase in facial hair growth. We also touched on how issues with the adrenal glands and polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) are also culprits.  Today, we will look at two more reasons why women can experience excess facial hair.

Medications

Certain medications, supplements, and anabolic steroids can cause an increase in facial hair growth. If you need to take a medicine that causes excess facial hair for a long period of time, then hair removal laser treatment may be an option to consider.

Prior Shaving

If you ever made it a habit to shave your facial hair with a razor, it can cause your facial hair to grow back thicker. While this doesn’t always happen with every women, it is common, which is why shaving is not the best hair removal treatment. Laser hair removal with an FDA cleared medical laser definitely delivers the best results.

If you are seeking permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers offers a comfortable laser hair removal experience.

A Discussion on Women’s Facial Hair

Excess facial hair can be a cause of embarrassment for women. This is especially true if the hair is dark and/or thick. When someone comes to us seeking permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is sensitive to their concerns and the reasons why laser hair removal is important to them. We see many women who wish to have hair removal laser treatment performed to eliminate excess facial hair.

We are continuing our series of articles discussing some of the causes of excessive facial hair in women. Our previous article covered the fact that genetics and adrenal gland issues can each play a role in growth of facial hair in women. Let’s take a look at a few more causes:

Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome (PCOS)

PCOS causes cysts to form on the ovaries. While these cysts are often benign, they are the culprit that causes a plethora of problems including irregular menstrual cycles, fertility issues, and excess hair growth on the face. Our laser hair removal center treats many women with PCOS, helping them feel better about their appearance and restoring their overall confidence.

Hormones

A change in hormone levels, particularly estrogen, can cause an increase in facial hair. Hormones can be affected by pregnancy, menopause, or a hormone-related issue in the body. We see numerous women in menopause who come to us seeking laser hair removal.

Our next article will cover more causes of excess facial hair in women.

The face is a very sensitive area, so you want to choose a provider with a reputation of delivering the best hair removal treatment services. If you truly want permanent hair removal,  Manhattan Laser Centers is the preferred laser hair removal center servicing New York City and surrounding areas.  In addition to treating single areas including the face, we can perform hair removal laser treatment on larger areas (i.e., full legs laser) and even full body hair removal.

 

 

Causes of Excessive Facial Hair in Women

Excessive facial hair in women can be a source of embarrassment for a woman of any age. We are sensitive to this and have treated hundreds of women who desire permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers can perform hair removal laser treatment on the full face or specific areas such as the chin, upper lip, and sideburns.  Our next series of articles will cover some of the most common causes of excessive facial hair in women.

Genetics

Genetics plays a significant role in almost everything related to our bodies, including facial hair growth. If you have a close family member with a lot of facial hair or have a cultural background that tends to have more than the average amount of facial hair, then you are also likely to have it.

Adrenal Gland

Adrenal gland disorders can also contribute to excessive facial hair.  Adrenal glands produce hormones, so if there is a problem with these glands, then it could affect your hormones and thus contribute to excessive facial hair.

Our next article will cover more causes of excessive facial hair in women.

Is Permanent Hair Removal Really Possible?

One of the most common questions we are asked is if permanent hair removal is really possible. The answer is, “yes!” However, it is not possible with all methods.  For instance, shaving, depilatories, waxing, electrolysis, in intense pulsed light (IPL) yield temporary results.  In most cases, you will get more traction out of electrolysis and IPL than you will shaving or waxing, but the results are still only temporary.

Hair removal laser treatment using an FDA cleared medical laser is the only way to achieve permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers has a team of qualified laser hair removal technicians who understand the process of hair removal laser treatment. Each is experienced and knowledgeable on how to operate our FDA cleared medical laser to achieve maximum results.

It is important to note that more than one laser hair removal treatment will be required to achieve permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers prides ourselves on being up front and transparent with our clients. This means that we will conduct an evaluation and provide you with an honest assessment of your needs and the cost to perform the recommended services.

If you want a service such as full body hair removal or full legs laser, these treatments may take a little longer than a single area treatment. There have been instances where a re-treatment is required down the road due to the thickness and/or other qualities of the hair.  Each person is different, but our qualified laser hair removal technicians will provide you with a comprehensive assessment of what is needed to achieve your desired results.

Easing Your Concerns About Laser Hair Removal

We are continuing our series of articles addressing some of the most common questions about laser hair removal. Our previous article addressed how laser hair removal does not cause the hair to grow back thicker. We also discussed how hair removal laser treatment does not expose you to any radiation whatsoever. We then covered how full body hair removal is possible, especially when using an FDA cleared medical laser and how you can return to work and most regular activities after hair removal laser treatment. Today, we will address more concerns that prevent some people from seeking hair removal laser treatment.

“Laser Hair Removal Won’t Work on My Skin Type”

A common myth is that laser hair removal is only effective on people with a certain skin type. This is simply untrue. Hair removal laser treatment can be performed on all skin types and tones. It is safe and effective when the laser hair removal center uses an FDA cleared medical laser that is operated by trained technicians. If you are seeking permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is a reputable provider as our trained technicians perform laser hair removal using the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser.

“I’ve Heard That Hair Removal Laser Treatment is as Painful as Electrolysis”

This is not true. Electrolysis is a very painful procedure that rips the hair from the follicle. Hair removal laser treatment is a painless procedure that, at most, feels like tiny pricks to the skin.

If you want the best hair removal treatment, look no further. Manhattan Laser Centers offers quality services at affordable prices.  We can perform full body hair removal, full legs laser, or concentrate solely on a specific body area. We invite you to schedule an appointment today!

 

 

We are continuing our series that addresses some common concerns about hair removal laser treatment.  Our previous article covered the fact that laser hair removal does NOT cause hair to grow back thicker. We also touched on the fact that hair removal laser treatment works by using a laser that emits light and heat, NOT radiation.  Today, we will answer more questions about hair removal laser treatment.

“I’ve Heard That Laser Hair Removal is Only Effective on the Legs.”

While full legs laser is a popular treatment, be assured that laser hair removal can be performed on any body area. In fact, full body hair removal is a service we perform quite often. And, when it comes to permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is proud to serve both men and women.

“Doesn’t Healing After Hair Removal Laser Treatment Take Forever?

While it will likely take multiple treatments to achieve permanent hair removal, you will be able to return to work and most regular activities the same day. You will likely experience some skin sensitivity and redness for a short period of time, but this will subside, usually in about 12-24 hours for most people.

“I’ve Heard Laser Hair Removal Can Cause Hair to Grow Back Thicker”

While there are some forms of hair removal that can cause hair to grow back thicker, this is simply not true when it comes to hair removal laser treatment. Laser hair removal treats the hair follicles, so they are unable to produce new hair. When laser hair removal is properly performed using a medical laser, the results are permanent hair removal. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser.

“My Friend Told Me Not to Get Hair Removal Laser Treatment Because of Radiation Exposure”

This is not true. Lasers work by emitting light energy. No radiation or radioactive material is used when performing laser hair removal.

More Post Laser Hair Removal Guidelines

We are continuing our series of articles discussing some guidelines and tips to consider after you’ve had hair removal laser treatment.  Our previous articles covered the importance of avoiding any skin irritants for at least a week afterwards, using SPF 50 sunscreen if you plan to go outside, avoiding waxing, plucking, and depilatories, and refraining from using hot water or saunas until the redness subsides.  Today, we will look at two more post laser hair removal tips.

Exfoliate

It does take some time for the treated hair to shed out and away from the follicles.  Therefore, we recommend you gently exfoliate the area(s) where you received hair removal laser treatment at least every other day for one week afterwards. This will help the treated, dead hair to shed.

Use Lots of Moisturizer!

Applying moisturizer daily is recommended after hair removal laser treatment.  Not only is this a good practice that helps keep your skin healthy in general, but doing so after laser hair removal and any subsequent exfoliation treatments keeps your skin looking and feeling replenished.

If you are seeking the best hair removal treatment, then Manhattan Laser Centers is the place for you.  We perform everything from full body hair removal and full legs laser to laser hair removal on single areas. After your hair removal laser treatment, you will be provided with a list of specific post-treatment guidelines to help ensure its effectiveness. Give us a call to schedule an appointment today.

Guidelines for Best Laser Hair Removal Results

We are continuing our series on what to expect and recommendations of some things to do after you’ve had a hair removal laser treatment session. Our previous articles covered the fact that the area treated may feel like a sunburn for a day or so, the importance of avoiding hot water and saunas, making a plan to take it easy, and avoiding skin irritants after laser hair removal. Today, will look at two more recommendations to consider.

Use SPF 50 Sunscreen

You should apply sunscreen to the treated area every day until you conclude all of your laser hair removal treatments. If you plan to go outside, be sure to use at least an SPF 50 sunscreen with UVA/UVB. In fact, this is a good practice all the time, regardless of whether or not you’ve had hair removal laser treatment.

Avoid Waxing, Plucking, Electrolysis, or Depilatories

While it may be tempting, you need to completely avoid waxing, plucking, electrolysis, and depilatories before, after, and between laser hair removal sessions. If you need to, you can gently shave the area as needed after the redness and swelling subsides. Once you have completed your laser hair removal treatments, hair removal will be permanent.

Our next article will explore more post laser hair removal recommendations.
