Not all hair removal centers welcome men.  When it comes to laser hair removal, New York City residents know that we not only offer quality services, but we welcome everyone! We are gender agnostic and proud to serve both men and women.  And, we are an official LGBTQ safe zone as identified on Google.

Let’s take a look at some of the most common laser hair removal services requested by men:

Permanent Hair Removal

Although men’s hair tends to be thicker, we can perform permanent laser hair removal on men. In fact, it is easier to target coarse hair with the laser, therefore all men and women with thick hair will see an extremely dramatic reduction after the very first sessions. Men come to us to remove hair from different areas of the body, including face, neck, back, arms, legs, underarms, shoulders, ears, chest, legs, stomach, buttocks, and private areas

Hair Reduction

Sometimes men don’t want permanent hair removal, but instead prefer hair reduction.  We can reduce the amount of hair on just about any area of the body. Popular areas for hair reduction for men are chest, arms, legs, front of the neck and under arms.

Re-Design

We have men come to us wanting to re-design their body hair.  Just about anything is possible with our customized laser hair treatments and advanced medical laser technology.

Ingrown Hair

Laser hair removal is often prescribed by doctors for patients who have chronic in-grown hair issues.  We can permanently remove ingrown hair and razor bumps.

Many “laser” providers use pulsed light vs. lasers. Manhattan Laser Centers uses state-of the-art Candela medical lasers.  When looking for an experienced and qualified center for laser hair removal, NYC residents trust Manhattan Laser Centers.  Schedule your appointment today!

What is the Difference Between Electrolysis and Laser Hair Removal?

We are often asked about the difference between electrolysis and laser hair removal.  New York City is chock full of providers who claim that electrolysis is better than laser hair removal.  Here are a few facts so you can decide for yourself.

Electrolysis is an invasive way to perform hair removal. It involves sticking a needle into the skin and literally electrocuting the area in hopes of destroying a single hair follicle. It is meant for white hair that cannot be removed any other way and is not designed to be used on large skin surfaces.  Electrolysis is also not supposed to be performed on a regular basis due to the damage and marks it leaves on the skin.  In fact, those who choose electrolysis vs. laser hair removal must wait long periods (up to nine months depending on age) in between sessions to allow the skin to heal.

Laser hair removal, on the otherhand, is not only effective for hair removal, but it has other positive benefits, including skin rejuvenation and collagen boost.  In fact, we have clients who come to us specifically for those purposes.

When comparing electrolysis to laser hair removal, think about a bicycle vs. a car.  Electrolysis is an older technology that is not considered an alternative to laser hair removal.  On the contrary, laser is faster, more efficient and is actually meant to replace electrolysis.

If you need a reliable, replicable laser hair removal provider in New York City, look no further. When it comes to laser hair removal, NYC residents trust us to provide them with honest, transparent and quality services.  Give Manhattan Laser Centers a call today!

Ingrown hairs cause bumps and discoloration of the skin.  They can also be very painful.  Imagine if you could permanently get rid of pesky and unsightly ingrown hairs?  Well, you actually can with medical laser hair removal. New York City’s preferred laser hair center offers treatment for ingrown hairs.  In fact, Manhattan Laser Centers are the preferred provider for ingrown hair treatment and laser hair removal in NYC.

First, let’s discuss what actually happens with an ingrown hair. Ingrown hairs result when the hair grows back into the skin’s surface.  This often causes a bump and/or discoloration of the skin.  It can become infected and collect puss, and often results in a skin rash.  Ingrown hairs can occur anywhere on the body and are often caused by shaving or waxing.

Ingrown hairs can be treated by medical laser hair removal.  NYC offers many “hair removal” studios, but few actually use medical lasers.  It is important to use a true medical laser when treating ingrown hair.  Laser hair removal of the ingrown hair is often performed in a series of treatments much like traditional laser hair removal. If you have discoloration of the surrounding skin as a result of the ingrown hair, we can help resolve that as well.

If you want to permanently resolve your ingrown hair problem, the only effective way is through medical laser hair removal. NYC residents and anyone in surrounding areas who experience this problem can count on Manhattan Laser Centers to provide them with a permanent solution.  Don’t continue to live with ingrown hairs.  Our staff is highly experienced and our services are very affordable.

We are taking time to answer some of the most common questions people have about laser hair removal.  New York City has many providers to choose from and it is important to select one who is knowledgeable and experienced.  Manhattan Laser Centers uses true medical lasers for laser hair removal.  NYC practices that use intense pulsed light (IPL) often falsely claim to use medical lasers.

Let’s take a look at some common questions people have about laser hair removal:

What is the difference between laser hair removal and electrolysis?

Electrolysis treats one hair at a time.  Medical laser hair removal can treat multiple hairs with each laser pulse.  Electrolysis is usually pretty painful and takes much longer than medical laser hair removal.  NYC residents and those in surrounding areas choose Manhattan Laser Centers because we use true medical lasers.

Is laser hair removal safe?

Laser hair removal using true medical lasers is not only effective, but safe.  Manhattan Laser Centers is the preferred choice when seeking medical hair removal in New York City because we use state-of-the-art Candela medical lasers and our staff is highly qualified and experienced.

Does a medical laser emit dangerous radiation?

Absolutely not.  Medical lasers use non-ionizing light, which is completely safe. This should not be confused with ionizing radiation which is often used in x-rays.  Medical lasers do NOT use ionizing radiation.

How long will my laser hair removal session take?

This depends on the area being treated.  Smaller areas such as the lip or chin may take a few minutes.  Larger areas such as the chest or legs will take longer.  We can give you an accurate estimate of time once we evaluate your needs.

When it comes to laser hair removal in New York City, no one can hold a candle to Manhattan Laser Centers.  Schedule your appointment today!

We find that many people have questions about laser hair removal but are too shy to ask.  Are you interested in learning more about laser hair removal?  New York City has many providers, and you’ll find that Manhattan Laser Centers is one of the few that is open and transparent with our clients. Over the next few months, Manhattan Laser Centers will publish a series of articles designed to answer the questions some people are too shy to ask.

“I have a lot of thick, dark hair.  Will you be able to help?”

Yes, we can help!  We are one of the few laser hair removal centers in New York City that uses a true medical laser.  Medical lasers have been proven effective on all skin types and tones and are also effective in reducing and removing thick, dark hair. In fact, thick hair is actually easier for a medical laser to target and it responds much faster to treatments. Beware of companies who claim to use a medical laser but instead use intense pulsed light (IPL).  IPL’s cannot treat thick hair without risk of burning the skin.

“Can you remove hair from my bikini or private areas?”

Yes, we perform full body laser hair removal for both men and women.  Some NYC customers prefer we treat specific areas (i.e. legs, arms, underarms, lip, chin, back, abdomen, buttocks, thighs, chest, bikini area, and private areas) while others choose to design and customize a full body package.

“Do you work with the LGBTQ communities?”

Absolutely!!!!  At Manhattan Laser Centers, we pride ourselves on being gender agnostic and are an official LGBTQ friendly zone as declared on our Google local business profile. Some laser hair removal centers in NYC are not gender agnostic and will not offer private area treatments to men.

“Can you treat ingrown hairs?”

Yes we can!  Ingrown hairs are a common problem that can be remedied with laser hair removal in just a few sessions.

Next month, we will address more common questions people have about laser hair removal.  Do you live, work or often find yourself in the New York City area?  If so, Manhattan Laser Centers is your one-stop-shop and trusted source for all your laser hair removal needs.  Schedule your appointment today!

There are many options when it comes to laser hair removal. New York City is one area that is saturated with laser hair removal providers and it is often difficult to discern the differences.  One aspect you should consider is whether the laser hair removal center you are considering in NYC uses true medical lasers or intense pulsed light (IPL).

Manhattan Laser prides itself on being a laser hair removal center that uses a medical laser.  Unfortunately, many so-called laser hair removal centers in NYC say they use “laser” when they really use IPL.  So, what is the difference between medical laser hair removal and IPL?  Let’s take a closer look:

Light Source

Unlike many laser hair removal centers in New York City, when you choose Manhattan Laser Centers, your treatments will be conducted by a professional using a true medical laser.  Medical lasers use laser technology to permanently remove hair.  IPL, on the otherhand, uses broad-spectrum light which does not permanently remove hair and is considered an alternative to waxing.

Hair Root

Destroying the hair root is key when it comes to successful laser hair removal.  Medical lasers kill the hair root while IPL deals with only the fine hairs on the surface.

Licensing

Medical lasers are a medical technology and require licensing. IPL’s are for spa’s and don’t require licensing.

Skin Tone

IPL can ONLY be used on very, very light skin with very fine hair, otherwise it will burn the skin in the process.  Medical lasers, however, can be used for laser hair removal on all skin tones and hair textures.

When it comes to laser hair removal in NYC, Manhattan Laser Centers has you covered. We are FDA cleared and use medical lasers by Candela. In addition to or as an alternative to full laser hair removal, we can also reduce or re-design body and facial hair and eliminate ingrown hairs.  If you live, work or are visiting New York City, Manhattan or any of the surrounding areas, give us a call today!

A hot trend in 2019 is laser hair removal. New York City has many providers to choose from, but not all are created equal.  At Manhattan Laser Centers, we pride ourselves on being 100% transparent with our customers.  Let’s take a look at what makes Manhattan Laser Centers different from other laser hair removal NYC providers:

Pricing

We post all of our prices on our website so there are no surprises. We have been told that other centers post prices which often do not include hidden costs for laser hair removal. NYC has many providers all competing for the same business so when you see prices, be sure to read the fine print.  You can count on Manhattan Laser Centers to provide honest, up front pricing with no hidden costs.

True Medical Lasers

We use the FDA cleared Candela medical laser for all treatments. This state-of-the-art medical laser can be used on all complexions and is very effective for permanent laser hair removal. New York City has many providers who claim to use medical lasers, but instead use pulsed light, which is not capable of going deeper into the skin and reaching the base of the hair follicle.

You should always demand transparency when it comes to services involving laser hair removal. NYC is chock full of providers who talk the talk but don’t necessarily walk the walk. We at Manhattan Laser Centers are proud of our transparency and invite you to tour our facility at any time. Are you considering laser hair removal?  New York City residents and those in surrounding areas trust us with all of their hair removal needs.  Schedule your appointment today!

Now that the hustle and bustle of the holidays are over, it’s time to do something special for you. There is no better time than the present to consider laser hair removal. Permanent laser hair removal means no longer having to worry about shaving or stubble. At Manhattan Laser Centers, we treat both men and women and can perform laser hair removal on just about any part of the body, including the upper lip, chin, bikini area, underarms, legs, arms, chest, back, abdomen, buttocks, thighs and private areas.

When it comes to laser hair removal, New York City is home to the best! We are not your typical center for laser hair removal. NYC residents, those in surrounding areas and even visitors from all over the world choose Manhattan Lasers Centers because of our quality, experience and the fact that we use true medical lasers. Inferior centers use pulsed light and call it laser hair removal. NYC has many providers who say they use medical lasers but really use pulsed light. Pulsed light is lower quality, not as effective and has challenges when it comes to darker skin. Medical lasers, on the other hand, are extremely effective, deliver precision and quality and can be used on darker skin.

Manhattan Laser Centers is the preferred provider for laser hair removal in New York City and Manhattan, including Midtown and surrounding areas. Whether you live in NYC or are just visiting, Manhattan Laser Centers will take care of you and all of your laser hair removal needs. Start the new year off right by giving us a call today!
