Laser Hair Removal is Not Just for Women: Get Smoother Before Summer

Over one million laser hair removal procedures are conducted each year in the U.S., according to recent statistics. And while women account for many of these procedures, increasingly more men are going under the laser for this gentle, noninvasive treatment. Doing so during spring months can help you get the smooth, hairless skin you desire—without the hassle or potential pain of shaving and waxing—in time for summer.

If you’re interested in laser hair removal, our team at Tulsa Vein Institute would love to assist. Dr. Davin Haraway uses the Cynosure® Elite+™, one of the most effective and revolutionary laser hair removal systems, to dramatically minimize unwanted body hair growth.

How laser hair removal works

Laser hair removal uses concentrated light energy to target and destroys hair follicles in treatment areas, guarding against regrowth without damaging surrounding skin. It tends to be well-tolerated, with only mild-to-moderate discomfort that’s temporary and easily managed with ice packs and topical treatments. While you might be satisfied with only one session, most people find a series of treatments most effective for permanent results.

During the treatment, you might notice a sensation that feels similar to a rubber band lightly snapping against your skin. Most people tolerate the treatment well, but you can request a topical numbing cream if you’re concerned about possible pain.

Areas laser hair removal treats

Laser hair removal is effective for people of all skin types and all hair colors and textures. It’s also gentle enough to treat your most delicate skin areas. Men often seek treatment for the following areas:

Laser hair removal for men can also help treat regions especially prone to ingrown hairs, such as the groin and beard areas.

Making the most of laser hair removal

To ensure that your skin stays smooth and healthy and that you get the most out of your treatment, follow your provider’s recommendations for before and aftercare. Important steps include:

If you want to get rid of unwanted hair in time for summer vacations or beach trips, schedule your first session with Dr. Haraway two to three months ahead. This allows for two or more treatments, spaced three to six weeks apart.
