Read on to learn more about laser hair removal for men and whether it’s the treatment option for you! 

What is laser hair removal for men?

Laser hair removal for men treats excess hair by killing the hair root, making it difficult for another hair to grow in its place. The result? Long-lasting hair removal for skin that remains hair-free, longer. At Stirling Skin Care Clinic, we use the excel® HR laser system by Cutera®, a global leader in medical aesthetics. 

What areas does laser hair removal for men treat?

Men can safely use laser hair removal on most areas of the body where unwanted hair grows, including:

Our team determines if laser removal is right for the areas where you want to eliminate hair. Some men may not be candidates for laser hair removal. For example, laser treatments work best for men with darker hair and lighter skin. Our team evaluates your skin and hair to recommend a treatment plan that will work for your needs.   

What’s involved in laser hair removal?

For the best results from your laser hair removal, we recommend you prepare first. It’s important to stop shaving, waxing, or plucking six weeks before your session. It’s also best to avoid tanning and to shave the treatment areas on the day of your appointment.

Different areas of the body, the quantity of hair being removed, and your hair and skin color all affect how many sessions your treatment may require and how long each session lasts. For example, a small area, like behind your ears, might only take one to two minutes while hair removal from your back could take up to an hour. 

During your treatment session, you’re free to lie back, relax, read, or listen to music. Most patients find laser hair removal is painless, but different people respond differently. Depending on the treatment area, it could feel like tingling or tickling or even a fleeting feeling of a rubber band snapping. 

Once your treatment session is complete, your skin may be slightly irritated for a short time. This usually resolves quickly, leaving you with the smooth skin you’ve longed to have. 

What results can I expect with laser hair removal for men?

Laser hair removal offers a fast and effective way for men to eliminate unwanted hair. Hair in different areas of the body and different types of hair respond to laser treatments differently. Most often, you’ll see a decrease in the amount and thickness of hair after each session, and over time, you’ll notice less stubble and new growth.

Many of our patients find the Cutera excel HR laser system results in permanent hair removal, however, that result isn’t guaranteed. Laser hair removal lasts for months and sometimes years. If hair does grow back, most men report finer, lighter hair. 

For the best results, Stirling specialists may recommend maintenance treatments every 6-12 months. At Stirling Skin Care Clinic, we help set expectations and treatment protocols to ensure your hair removal goals are met.
