Combat Ingrown Hairs: Laser Hair Removal for Men
- Posted on: Dec 15 2016
As a man, you know just how frustrating it can be to experience ingrown hairs around your neck and chin caused by shaving. By causing your hair follicles to become irritated, clogged, and even inflamed, ingrown hairs can be more than uncomfortable— they can be unsightly as well. However, at SKIN Medical Spa, we know the importance of having smooth, clear skin and that is why we offer our male patients the opportunity to undergo laser hair removal on their chin and neck. Read on to learn more.
Is it safe?
Typically when you think of laser hair removal, you likely think of a female getting it done on her legs, bikini area, or underarms— not on her face, which may leave you feeling a bit skeptical about getting laser hair removal done on your face or so close to it. However, unlike lasers of the past, the lasers that we use at SKIN Medical Spa are extremely safe and won’t give you any burns or blemishes. However, you have to make sure that you are taking proper care of your skin both before and after your laser hair removal because things like sun exposure can cause permanent damage to your skin and may even discolor it.
Is it effective?
Just like with any part of your body where you may get laser hair removal done, it is extremely effective but will take at least a few sessions for you to get the permanent results that you are going for. And if in between sessions you notice a patch of hair that looks like it was completely missed by the laser— don’t be alarmed, it wasn’t missed but those hair follicles will come out.
Is it painful?
Getting laser hair removal on your neck and chin is a bit more painful than say, your legs. However, one of the experts at SKIN Medical Spa will apply a topical numbing gel to help ease any pain or discomfort that you may feel. Many patients say that laser hair removal feels like rubber bands smacking against your skin.
If you suffer from nasty ingrown hairs on your neck or chin, try getting laser hair removal done. To learn more or to schedule an appointment, contact SKIN Medical Spa today!
