It has been estimated that a man spends an average of five months of his life shaving! This is not only time-consuming but also an everyday need since facial hair re-grows within a few hours. In addition, frequent shaving is many times the cause of pseudofolliculitis barbae, a condition in which hair grows into the skin creating bumps and irritation. This is quite common in men with high hair density on both the face and the neck. Laser hair removal is indicated in the areas of the cheekbones, the cheeks and the neck. Moreover, it is the most safe, painless and permanent solution for unwanted hair of the nose and ears, where the use of a razor or a hair removal device is both difficult and dangerous.
For many men, hairy chest is not a positive aspect of masculinity, as it used to be in the past. Nowadays, a hairless chest is considered better as it allows the muscles to emerge. Moreover, for those who are engaged in sports, lack of hair is an ally for better performance. Shaving using a razor or a shaver leads to more rough bristles, redness and to the development of in-grown hairs. Despite the fact that hair on the chest is hormone-dependent, with the use of laser it is possible to eliminate them safely and without pain.
Hairy back is considered disturbing for many men as it does not allow them to enhance their muscles, whilst it may also be used for awkward jokes. Moreover, more time and effort are necessary for hair removal at the back because of its dimension and its location in comparison to other areas of the body. The use of a razor is not indicated as it results to rougher hair and may lead to injuries, while shavers, hair removal creams and waxing are quite painful procedures that can cause folliculitis and irritate the skin. Laser hair removal constitutes the only method that offers quick, painless and permanent hair removal in the area of the back.
Many times the arms of men are particularly hairy, with their hair growing from the upper part of the arm to the fingers that are apparent even below long-sleeve shirts. Hairy arms and hands look ugly especially for men engaged in sports, while for some sports, such as swimming, it may even be an obstacle to their performance. Hair removal using a shaver or through waxing is a painful procedure, while it may lead to folliculitis or burns. On the other hand, laser hair removal is painless and safe, while it can be used for the removal of hair from the arms, forearms, hands, and fingers.
Hairy legs are a common aesthetic problem for many men. Although it may be considered as a characteristic of masculinity, it does not allow the promotion of a good looking body with muscles. Especially for people engaged in sports, such as cycling, swimming and athletics, hairy legs constitute a problem that should be permanently treated, and this cannot be achieved with razors, shavers, hair removal creams or waxing. In most cases, these hair removal methods most of the times result in pain, minor injuries, irritation and, of course, frequent need to repeat the procedure. Only laser can ensure elimination of excessive hair, hence unwanted on the thighs, legs and feet in a safe, quick and painless manner.
