Laser hair removal

Part Two

We are continuing our series on the pitfalls of shaving and reasons to consider hair removal laser treatment.  Our previous article covered the fact that shaving is temporary and laser hair removal is permanent.  We also discussed how shaving can cause various types of skin irritation.  Today, we will take a look at two more reasons to consider hair removal laser treatment.

Shaving Can Cause Ingrown Hairs

We discussed how shaving can irritate the skin in our previous article.  This continued irritation is more than just annoying.  It can actually lead to a bigger problem of ingrown hairs.  Once you have hair removal laser treatment performed on a part of your body, you no longer need to shave and therefore eliminate this annoying and unsightly shaving pitfall.

Shaving Requires Ongoing Purchases of Supplies

Shaving cream, razors, blades, lotions and after shave are among the shaving supplies that must be purchased on a regular basis.  Laser hair removal is permanent, thus eliminating the need for shaving supplies.

If you are considering permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers is a good place to start.  Our friendly, experienced laser hair removal staff will perform a complimentary patch test and provide you with a proposed hair removal laser treatment plan for your consideration.  Our laser hair removal center treats all areas of the body and we even perform full legs laser and full body hair removal.  If you are ready to ditch shaving forever, we offer the best hair removal treatment in NYC.  Give us a call to schedule your complimentary, no obligation consultation today!

Laser hair removal

Part One

Still shaving?  If so, you are not alone.  However, if you are tired of the hassles involved with shaving and are interested in a solution for permanent hair removal, Manhattan Laser Centers can help. Laser hair removal using true medical lasers is effective for permanent hair reduction and hair re-design.  Our next series of articles discuss the pitfalls of shaving and some reasons to consider hair removal laser treatment.

Shaving is a Temporary Solution

Shaving provides only a temporary hair removal solution.  And, depending on the area, amount and thickness of your hair, you may need to shave once a day or more to keep unwanted hair at bay.  Hair removal laser treatment is permanent.  There is no need to worry about that five o’clock shadow or shaving your legs again before going out.  Whether you want full body hair removal, full legs laser, or a specific part of the body treated, rest assured you will never have to contend with stubble again.

Shaving Often Results in Irritated Skin

Shaving irritates the skin in the worst way.  People with sensitive skin are especially susceptible.  Shaving is an invasive and abrasive process of dragging a blade flat against your skin to get the closest shave possible.  Razor burn, red bumps, cuts and

overall irritation are some of the downfalls of shaving.  Laser hair removal is permanent and does not involve constantly irritating your skin.

Our next article will cover two more reasons to consider laser hair removal and ditch shaving forever.

Arms

Many women shave or wax their arms. This often results in stubble, ingrown hairs, cuts and scrapes.  Why endure this several times a month when laser hair removal can permanently reduce or eliminate the hair.  Our full arms laser hair removal permanently gets rid of hair and leaves skin smooth and soft.  This treatment includes the area from just under the shoulder to the wrist.

Belly

Belly hair that is shaved, waxed or plucked can become irritated or infected.  Hair removal laser treatment can permanently remove unsightly belly hair. This laser hair removal treatment includes the mid line from the bikini area to just above the belly button.

Full Bikini (Brazilian)

The bikini area definitely should not be waxed or shaved due to its extreme sensitivity. Our full bikini / Brazilian laser hair removal eliminates re-growth stubble and creates a smooth, flawless area. This laser hair removal treatment includes the bikini line slightly over the underwear and the full area and center of the buttocks.

Back

Some men are self-conscious about hair on their back.  Whether you wish to have laser hair removal or reduction, our goal is to make it look natural.  If you are keeping hair on connected areas, we will make it fade-in so no one will be able to tell that you had the area treated.

Shoulders

When we perform laser hair removal on your shoulders, we also treat your upper arms and a portion of the chest to ensure the hair fades in and looks natural.  Some men choose to have us perform laser hair removal on both their back and shoulders concurrently.

Legs

We can perform upper, lower or full legs laser hair removal.  Lower legs laser hair removal includes the area from above the knee to the top of the ankle.  Upper legs laser hair removal includes the top of the leg to the top of the knee.  Full legs laser hair removal includes the area from the top of the leg to the ankle.

Laser Hair Removal or Electrolysis: Which is Better?

We are often asked about the differences between laser hair removal and electrolysis.  Laser hair removal was actually developed to replace the “older” technology of electrolysis.  Let’s take a look at some of the differences:

Side Effects

When considering laser hair removal or electrolysis, laser hair removal has much less risk of side effects than electrolysis. Scarring and/or infection may occur with electrolysis. When performed by an experienced professional, laser hair removal using an FDA cleared medical laser is completely safe.

Treatment Time

Most areas can be treated with a laser in a few minutes.  Electrolysis takes much more time per session.  And, in most cases, electrolysis requires an average of 30 treatments whereas with laser hair removal, the desired result can often be achieved within 10 treatments.

Comfort

Bottom line, electrolysis hurts!  Electrolysis involves placing a needle into the hair follicle and passing electric current through the follicle.  This not only results in pain and discomfort but swelling as well. It is for this reason alone that when many people are asked if they would like laser hair removal or electrolysis, they choose laser hair removal.

Full Body Hair Removal

When it comes to full body hair removal, laser hair removal is much more practical and comfortable than electrolysis.  The number of electrolysis treatments needed for full body hair removal is extremely high compared to laser hair removal.

Why settle for electrolysis when you can get the best laser hair removal in NYC.  Manhattan Laser Centers is experienced, affordable and gender agnostic.  We happily welcome both men and women.  Give us a call to book your appointment today!

Laser Hair Removal: Why You Should Not DIY

We live in a do-it-yourself (DIY) society where people take on just about anything and everything from home remodeling to making their own beer and wine.  While DIY can be fun and rewarding in some areas, there are other areas that should be saved for the professionals.  Laser hair removal is one of them.  Sadly, there are many DIY laser hair removal kits that are flooding the market.  While they may sound like a bargain, there are many reasons to avoid DIY laser hair removal:

Safety

The safety of DIY laser hair removal treatments is questionable at best.  A trained professional using an FDA cleared medical laser has the knowledge and experience to safely perform laser hair removal treatments.  They also know how to adjust the laser to different skin types and can address specific concerns such as sensitive skin.

Effectiveness

The goal of laser hair removal is to achieve permanent hair reduction and/or removal.  DIY laser hair removal methods are often not only ineffective, but it is difficult to gauge the current length and number of treatments needed without professional training and experience.

Complications

The adverse reactions associated with DIY laser hair removal is significant.  Some of the side effects of DIY laser hair removal include swelling, redness, blisters, scarring and discoloration.

Full Body Hair Removal

Full body hair removal is a process that should only be performed by a trained professional.  When it comes to full body hair removal, DIY methods should definitely be ruled out.

If you want the best laser hair removal in NYC, look no further.  Not only are we professional and experienced, but we are also affordable.  DIY comes with many problems that make it not worth the risk.  Why use a questionable DIY method when the best laser hair removal in NYC is within reach?  Give Manhattan Laser Centers a call to book your appointment today.

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!
