Do Women Like Laser Hair Removal for Men?
It’s official – hair removal is very much becoming the new norm amongst men. According to a survey by Cosmopolitan, 95% of men regularly groom their body hair, and ladies are loving it. We talk about the case for hair removal, and whether shaving, waxing, depilatory creams or laser hair removal for men is best.
Studies Show Women Like Hairless Men
A study published in the Archives of Sexual Behaviour revealed that women across the board prefer men without body hair. Over 300 women were shown images of men with hairy chests, and men without. The researchers found that only a very small percentage of women preferred men with hairier chests.
Hair Removal for Men is Becoming More Popular
Laser hair removal for men has become much more popular and culturally accepted over the past few years. A recent study by Lafayette College found that men cite the following reasons for wanting to remove hair;
- Sex appeal
- Body definition and muscularity
- Better sexual experience
- Sports performance
Laser Hair Removal on the Face
As well as removing body hair, we’ve seen a significant rise in the number of men using laser hair removal to permanently remove their facial hair. They’re saving precious time every morning by not having to shave, and they’re avoiding the 5pm shadow that some men dread.
Another major reason men are turning to laser for facial hair removal is to avoid the razor burn and skin irritation that so often occurs when shaving the sensitive skin on their faces. With laser, a perfectly clean-shaven face is achievable for good.
If a clean-shaven look isn’t your thing, did you know about laser hair removal for beard shaping? Often, facial hair doesn’t grow as evenly or neatly as some men would like. So instead of worrying about constant shaving and plucking to whip your beard into shape, laser hair removal acts as a permanent solution.
Is Laser Hair Removal the Best Option?
While you can always turn to shaving, waxing or hair removal cream – laser hair removal has some obvious benefits. It doesn’t cause the same skin irritation that other hair removal methods cause, it’s less painful than waxing and after enough treatments, it’s permanent.
How does it work? We use an award-winning medical grade laser machine that directs a narrowly focused laser beam at hair follicles. This laser damages the follicle and destroys its ability to regrow hair. With each treatment, your hair will grow back slower and finer until the follicle eventually grows no hair at all.
If you don’t want permanent hair removal, laser hair removal might not be the best option for you. But keep in mind that you’ll need quite a few treatments to see complete, permanent hair removal. So if you’d just like to see a reduction in hair, one or two treatments might do the trick.
