Best Laser Hair Removal in NYC

Part Two

Manhattan Laser Centers has been treating men for more than two decades.  We are one of the few laser centers that treat men, which is one reason why we are considered by many to be the best laser hair removal in NYC.

We often see men who have previously tried depilation, laser hair removal or electrolysis.  Depilation and electrolysis are not permanent, and laser hair removal performed by an unqualified treatment center often yields undesirable results.

Whether you are seeking full body hair removal or a specific area such as back laser hair removal, facial laser hair removal or buttocks laser hair removal, we can help!  We are sensitive to the special needs of men and are happy to answer your questions.  Here are a few common questions we receive about laser hair removal for men:

Can people tell that I removed my hair?

Once the lasered hair falls out (usually after seven days), you will look as if you never had hair in that area.  This applies to both area specific hair removal (i.e. facial laser hair removal, back laser hair removal, buttocks laser hair removal, etc.) as well as full body hair removal.

Will it look natural?

Absolutely. In fact, it will look natural and more aesthetic than before.  This is not the case with other non-permanent methods such as waxing, electrolysis or depilation. Laser hair removal will result in a significant improvement and will not cause new problems. There is no downside to laser hair removal for men.

Will it look natural in-between the sessions? Can I take my shirt off before my treatments are complete?

Absolutely. You will look natural after the first seven days. During laser hair removal treatment, we will kill the roots and it will take seven days for them to fall out. Once they fall out the pores will close in and your skin will look perfectly smooth, as if you never had hair to begin with. You will not be able to tell that you ever needed the treatment and can go to the beach or pool enjoying your new image. This is not the case with waxing, electrolysis or depilation.

Our next article will continue to answer questions about laser hair removal for men.  Whether you need full body hair removal or a specific area, Manhattan Laser Centers is the best laser hair removal in NYC.  Give us a call today!

Best Laser Hair Removal in NYC

Part One

Why is Manhattan Laser Centers considered one of the best laser hair removal in NYC?  There are many reasons, but a big factor is that we are very sensitive to the specific needs of men and understand that many men are self-conscious about hair removal. While we treat both women and men, there are many providers that only work with women. Our clientele is comprised of an even mix of both men and women.

We offer full body hair removal and treat private areas upon request.  In addition to full body hair removal, men often request specific areas including facial laser hair removal, back laser hair removal and buttocks laser hair removal. We are also well qualified in designing facial hair for men which includes reduction, removal and re-design for the face, cheeks, sideburns, neck and hairline.

Our next article will answer some questions men commonly ask about laser hair removal.

If you or a gentleman you know are considering full body hair removal, hair removal on a specific area, or hair reduction, don’t settle for an inferior alternative such as laser hair removal or electrolysis at a spa or hair removal center that is not experienced or qualified.  Make an appointment at Manhattan Laser Centers to ensure you receive the best laser hair removal in NYC!

We are continuing to answer your questions about men and laser hair removal.  New York City has many laser hair removal centers, but few that serve men.  At Manhattan Laser Centers, we serve both men and women and are also gender agnostic and a LGBTQ safe zone.

We are continuing to answer more of your questions about laser hair removal for men:

How do you ensure that my laser hair removal looks natural?

Whether you want to focus on a specific area (i.e. facial laser hair removal, back laser hair removal, buttocks laser hair removal, etc.) or full body hair removal, we take extra steps to ensure a natural look.  For instance, when we treat shoulders, we also treat the upper arms  and a portion of the upper chest at no additional charge.  This helps the areas blend and look natural. When we treat the back and shoulders, we include the upper arms, full shoulders, upper line of the chest, full back, sides, the back of the neck and the hairline at no additional charge. We even go the extra mile to make the hair fade-in if you are keeping hair on connected areas.

Should I start with one body part or consider more?

It’s up to you.  Some men prefer to start with full upper body, full lower body, or full body hair removal. When treating multiple areas, we greatly discount additional areas and offer a customized price that is less than paying for each separately.

Will laser hair removal become less costly over time?

Absolutely. Some areas may require less sessions. Your intervals between sessions will also become longer. The majority of the laser hair removal process occurs within the first 6-8 sessions.  After that, we can easily schedule your follow-up sessions either immediately or several weeks down the road.

Do you perform laser hair removal on private areas?

Yes. We do not discriminate and you do not need to feel self-conscious about discussing any topic or area. We have several clients who have laser hair removal on their genitals and buttocks for esthetics and/or hygiene reasons.

You deserve the best laser hair removal in NYC.  Not only are we experienced and qualified, but we serve everyone and are honest and transparent with our pricing.  Give us a call to schedule your first laser hair removal appointment today!

Laser Hair Removal

One reason why Manhattan Laser Centers is considered by many to be the best laser hair removal in NYC is because we proudly serve everyone.  There are several centers that only offer women’s laser hair removal.  New York City has plenty of providers, but few that are gender agnostic and cater to both men and women.

We are continuing our series on laser hair removal for men.  Whether you want to focus on a specific area (i.e. facial laser hair removal, back laser hair removal, buttocks laser hair removal, etc.) or full body hair removal, we can help!

Do I need more than one treatment?

Complete laser hair removal requires multiple sessions.  Although we remove a cycle of hair on your first visit, there are more cycles to come. The good news is that although the next hair cycle will start growing immediately, it won’t reach the surface for nearly a month. You will be able to enjoy a naturally hair free look starting immediately after the first session.

How many sessions will it take to achieve complete laser hair removal?

Another reason we are considered by many to provide the best laser hair removal in NYC is because we are honest and transparent. Laser hair removal for men, especially full body hair removal, generally requires more treatments than it does for women.  The average number of sessions recommended for men is 10.  Any laser hair removal center that suggests less is, in our opinion, doing the customer a great disservice.

What if I cannot come back for a few weeks?

Since the previous hair cycle was incinerated completely during laser hair removal you will not see a coarse or prickly re-growth as experienced with shaving. If you were to miss a session, you may see some fine hair from the next hair cycle. You can avoid this altogether by following the recommended schedule, but if you miss an appointment, take comfort in knowing that any new growth will be fine and appear natural.

What if I don’t want to completely remove all hair?

Whether we are treating a single body part or performing full body hair removal, every treatment is a permanent contribution to your overall results.  Some men decide they want hair reduction rather than complete laser hair removal and either pause the treatments or take longer breaks in-between.

If you want the best laser hair removal in NYC, look no further.  Give your friends at Manhattan Laser Centers a call today!

When it comes to hair removal, women often consider options such as waxing, depilation, laser hair removal or electrolysis.  The safest, most effective is laser hair removal performed with true medical lasers.  Manhattan Laser Centers is considered one of the best laser hair removal in NYC because we are qualified, experienced and use an FDA cleared medical laser.

Although we are experts in full body hair removal, most women prefer to focus on certain areas.  Permanent laser hair removal takes approximately 10 sessions but can vary depending on the amount and thickness of hair.  Let’s take a look at some popular laser hair removal areas for women:

Underarms

This includes the armpit and areas slightly above and below.

Buttocks

Permanently remove hair from the area from just below the waist to the line where the legs meet the buttocks.

Full Bikini

This is also referred to as Brazilian and includes the bikini line slightly over the underwear, full area of the buttocks and center of the buttocks.

Belly

We treat the mid line extending from the bikini area to just above the belly button.

Lower Legs

Includes the area from above the knee to the top of the ankle bone.

When deciding between waxing, depilation, laser hair removal or electrolysis consider whether you want the hair removal to be permanent.  Laser hair removal using a true medical laser is the only permanent solution.  Waxing and electrolysis are also very painful. Advanced laser technology is much more precise and less painful than in the early days of laser hair removal.  Today, most people describe feeling a series of tingling sensations as the laser works its magic.

Whether you need full body hair removal or just want to focus on a specific area, we can help!  If you want the best laser hair removal in NYC, then make an appointment with Manhattan Laser Centers today.

Men are often overlooked when it comes to hair removal services. Manhattan Laser Centers proudly provides laser hair removal to everyone, including men, women and the LGBTQ community. We have specialized services that cater to the needs of men, including full body hair removal.  And, we are an official LGBTQ safe zone as identified by Google.

There are many hair removal options on the market including depilation, laser hair removal or electrolysis. Laser hair removal is by far the most effective. When you choose Manhattan Laser Centers, you can take comfort in knowing you are receiving the best laser hair removal in NYC.  We are specialists in full body hair removal. We can also treat specific areas including the head, neck bikini line, back, shoulders and chest.

Some men come to us wanting permanent full body hair removal, while others are seeking hair reduction.  Depilation and electrolysis are not permanent and they are definitely not effective in hair reduction. Laser hair removal is the only effective option.  We can also re-design body hair.  And, if ingrown hairs are a problem, then laser hair removal can permanently remove ingrown hair and razor bumps.

When it comes to removing hair, many people wonder whether to go with waxing, depilation, electrolysis or laser hair removal.  The most effective and permanent method is most definitely laser hair removal.  If you are looking for the best laser hair removal in NYC, look no further. Give Manhattan Laser Centers a call today!

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective method to remove and/or reduce body hair.  In fact, using a true medical laser like we have at Manhattan Lasers Centers is arguably the safest method of hair removal.  When it comes to laser hair removal, New York City trusts us because we are experienced and truly care about our clients.

Let’s take a look at some common alternatives to laser hair removal to better understand why true medical lasers are one of the safest, most effective methods.

Shaving

Shaving is harsh on the skin and the hair starts to come back within hours.  When shaving a large area such as your back or chest, it will often itch and feel uncomfortable as it grows back.  Experts are also noticing that shaving is not as safe or sanitary as it increases the chances of infection, especially when re-using blades.  With laser hair removal, you do not need to worry about bacteria, bleeding or infection.  And, when the area is properly treated with a true medical laser, laser hair removal and/or reduction is permanent.

Waxing

Waxing is extremely painful and not permanent.  There is also a chance of cross-contamination of germs if the spatula is double-dipped.  We properly maintain and clean our medical lasers so laser hair removal with us is germ-free, safe and permanent.

Electrolysis

Electrolysis is invasive, painful, leaves marks on the skin, is not permanent and can cause infection if the equipment is not properly maintained.  Laser hair removal was developed to replace the “older” technology of electrolysis. Medical lasers are safer, faster and more efficient.

When it comes to laser hair removal, New York City residents count on Manhattan Laser Centers to provide them with the most advanced, experienced, safest and affordable services.  Don’t settle for a risky alternative.  Give us a call today!

Part 2

There are a lot of false rumors spreading about laser hair removal.  New York City has many providers, but few who use a true medical laser.  Problems can arise with methods that do not use true medical lasers.  Last month, we debunked the following myths about laser hair removal using true medical lasers:

  • You can only use laser hair removal on light skin – False
  • Laser hair removal is not for men – False
  • Laser hair removal is unsafe – False

This month we will expand on a few more laser hair removal myths.

Laser hair removal hurts

False.  Most clients report that laser hair removal feels like tiny pricks on the skin, but nothing that is painful.

Laser hair removal is expensive

False.  At Manhattan Laser Centers, it is not expensive for laser hair removal.  NYC does have providers who are not transparent with their pricing.   With us, you always know the costs up front.

All laser hair removal centers have the same technology

False.  In fact, when it comes to laser hair removal, New York City is full of providers who claim to use lasers but instead use intense pulsed light, an inferior technology.  At Manhattan Laser Centers, you can take comfort in knowing that we use true medical lasers.

When it comes to quality, transparency and experienced laser hair removal, NYC area residents need to look no further.  Schedule your appointment with Manhattan Laser Centers today!

There are many myths when it comes to laser hair removal. New York City residents count on Manhattan Laser Centers to be honest, open and transparent.  Let’s take a look at a few of the most common myths associated with laser hair removal.

Laser hair removal only works on light skin

False.  While it is true that intense pulsed light (IPL) is not ideal for dark skin tones, medical lasers can effectively and safely treat darker hair and skin. Beware of laser hair removal providers that claim to use lasers but really treat the area with IPL. Manhattan Laser Centers uses the FDA cleared CANDELA medical lasers for all laser hair removal treatments.

Laser hair removal is primarily for women

False.  We have an excellent track record of treating both men and women!  If you happen to have thick hair it is not a problem because thicker hair actually responds much faster to medical laser treatments.  When it comes to laser hair removal, NYC men and women prefer Manhattan Laser Centers.  We are gender agnostic and an official LGBTQ friendly zone.

Laser hair removal is not safe

False.  Treatments performed by a qualified clinician using a true medical laser are very safe and effective.  Beware of laser hair removal providers that do not use true medical lasers or have untrained staff performing the treatments.

Next month, we will cover three more myths associated with laser hair removal.  NYC trusts Manhattan Laser Centers to provide the highest quality laser hair removal with true medical lasers.  Summer is just around the corner.  Give us a call to make your appointment today!

When it comes to laser hair removal in New York City, many providers have hidden fees.  They advertise one rate for laser hair removal in a certain area, then add fees.  At Manhattan Laser Centers, we deliver exceptionally high quality, full laser hair removal treatments that cover all necessary parts within the price we advertise.  No two people are alike, which is why all of our laser hair removal services take aesthetics and customization into consideration.

Laser hair removal prices are based on the size of the area.  In some cases, we do recommend additional treatments and will disclose this up front.  For instance, a gentleman with a lot of thick chest hair connected to his back hair may need laser hair removal on his back, sides and chest. Many laser hair removal centers will either charge extra for this without disclosing, or, they will intentionally not treat the sides and leave a straight line, which does not produce a desired outcome.

When it comes to laser hair removal on the shoulders, we evaluate how much of the upper arm should be included to make it look natural.  We also take into consideration how much of the arm should treated so that the client does not need to purchase a separate package to achieve the desired look. We also go the extra mile to make the hair fade in from the untreated portion. We do the same for the upper arms while treating the shoulders.

Our price lists are transparent and straightforward.  Best of all, we do not have the hidden fees of many laser hair removal providers in NYC.  Here is a breakdown of what is included with each body part:

  • Lower legs – includes knees and feet (if necessary)
  • Lower arms – includes hands
  • Full legs – includes thighs knees feet
  • Face – includes the front of the neck, cheeks, and any other area that may have hair (i.e. sideburns, forehead, etc.)
  • Chest – includes stomach and sides
  • Buttocks – includes the center (Brazilian)
  • Back and Shoulders – includes entire shoulders front and back (all the way to the chest hair), back of the neck, hairline, the sides and half of the upper arms. This is the only item men need to purchase to get rid of their back hair.
