Benefits of Facial Laser Hair Removal

Hair removal laser treatment performed on facial areas offers numerous benefits for both women and men. Our next series of articles will cover some of the benefits experienced by people who visit a laser hair removal center to address the facial area.  Let’s get started:

Permanent Removal or Reduction

Hair removal laser treatment performed anywhere on the facial area can permanently remove or reduce hair in specific areas. Some men may wish to permanently remove hair in between their eyebrows and reduce the amount of hair that grows on their chin, upper lip, cheeks, and jawline. Women may choose to permanently remove all hair from their chin and upper lip areas. Laser hair removal or reduction performed on the facial area is permanent.

Eliminates Ingrown Hairs, Razor Bumps, etc.

Shaving, depilatories, waxing, and other forms of hair removal can cause ingrown hairs, razor bumps and other skin irritations. Laser hair removal is permanent and eliminates these issues on treated areas.

Our next article will cover more benefits of facial laser hair removal.

Laser Hair Removal Before and After Skin Care

We are continuing our series of articles discussing before and after care tips for laser hair removal. Our previous article covered the importance of making changes to your skin routine in preparation for your hair removal laser treatment and to avoid exposing your skin to the sun or chemicals at least two weeks prior.

Nurture Your Skin

After your hair removal laser treatment, it is important to pay close attention to what is happening with your skin for the first 24-48 hours and act accordingly. If there is any redness or swelling, you may apply ice. Consider wearing loose fitting clothes so there is no rubbing or friction against your skin. You may use an unscented moisturizer if necessary.

Avoid Heat

Heat is not your friend, at least until 48 hours after your hair removal laser treatment. You should avoid taking hot showers, saunas, hot tubs. Stay away from steam rooms. Also, refrain from any activities that could cause your skin to overheat, such as exercising. Minimize exposure to the sun.

Laser hair removal is a safe procedure, but it does require some before and after care. Our next series of articles will cover some skin care recommendations to consider.

Make Changes Six Weeks Before You Plan to Begin Treatment

Avoid all waxing and plucking since this is done at the hair root. If you want to shave, you can do so up to 48 hours before your hair removal laser treatment. Stop using any hair bleaching products on the area being treated. Also, please advise us of any medications you are taking as we may ask you to pause them before your hair removal laser treatment.

Avoid Exposing Your Skin to Anything

If you have a sunburn, you may not be able to begin hair removal laser treatment. Try to avoid the sun for at least two weeks prior. When you arrive to your appointment, make sure the area being treated is free from any make-up, lotions, ointment’s, or anything containing chemicals.

Common Reasons Men Have Hair Removal Laser Treatment Performed on Their Underarms

We are continuing our series of articles discussing common reasons why men choose to have laser hair removal performed on their underarms. Our previous article covered the fact that some men prefer to have a clean look when wearing a sleeveless shirt or no shirt at all. We also discussed how body odor is the result of bacteria mixing with sweat and since wet hair takes a long time to dry, having no underarm hair can significantly reduce body odor. Today, we will look at two more reasons why men opt to have hair removal laser treatment performed on their underarms.

Athletic Reasons

Some athletes choose to have hair removal laser treatment performed on their underarms. Athletes participating in sports where their attire is either a sleeveless top (i.e., track and field) or no top at all (i.e., swimming, diving) are more likely to opt for laser hair removal.

Partners Preference

In some cases, a man’s romantic partner may prefer hairless underarms. When this is the case, hair removal laser treatment of the underarms is often accompanied by laser hair removal of the full arms, back, and chest. Some men even opt for full body hair removal.

Manhattan Laser Centers offers the best hair removal treatment in New York City and surrounding areas. Our laser hair removal center is equipped with the FDA cleared CANDELA medical laser. Our experienced hair removal laser treatment staff are qualified to work on single body areas or larger areas (i.e., full legs laser, full body hair removal.) If you are seeking permanent hair removal, Manhattan Lasers Centers is the one to call. Contact us to schedule an appointment today.

 

 

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. Our technicians are sensitive and have the expertise to deliver quality hair removal laser treatment services. Not every laser hair removal center uses medical lasers.

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.

Are you seeking permanent hair removal? Manhattan Laser Centers welcomes the opportunity to work with you. We’ve earned the reputation for being one of the best hair removal laser treatment centers in New York City. Give us a call to schedule an appointment today!

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!
