Lo que los hombres y la depilación láser

What should men know before their first laser hair removal appointment?

When it comes to laser hair removal for men

To ensure the most effective laser hair removal routine, your pre-treatment consultation with your laser professional will help you determine which type of laser is best for your skin type and hair removal goals.

Different lasers have different benefits. Intense pulsed light works best on lighter to medium skin tones, whereas a diode laser ( Laser Hair Removal System ) tends to work on a more diverse range of skin types.

Before laser hair removal you should

1. Shave

You should shave the area to be treated before the appointment. If you don’t, the technician or dermatologist will trim or shave the area for you. (If that sounds worrisome, take our advice and shave beforehand.)

2. Stay out of the sun

The reason people often go for laser hair removal in winter is because you don’t want to be out in the sun in the area you are treating for about three weeks before your session.

The reason is twofold: Because lasers work best on light skin and dark hair, you don’t want your skin to be tanned and your hair slightly bleached from the sun. This also means that you cannot use self-tanners before your appointment. Plus, you don’t want to risk damaging your skin.

3. It’s pretty fast

Laser hair removal will take around 15-20 minutes, while the back will take about 30 minutes to complete. Your technician will draw a grid to make sure the entire area is treated, then apply a soothing cream to relieve redness and inflammation. It is like having a mild sunburn.

4. You can’t exercise after treatment

Actually, there are quite a few things to look forward to after your date.

Because you are temporarily injuring the skin, you want it to heal before going into excessive heat because it can cause more swelling and discomfort. After 48 hours , you can sunbathe, go to the sauna, take a jacuzzi and exercise.

How Much Does Laser Hair Removal Hurt?

With the advent of new lasers, laser hair removal does not cause much pain . Of course, it will depend on your tolerance for pain, but for the most part, it will feel like a prick or snap of a rubber band.

How many treatments do men need?

A man’s back or chest will need six to eight treatments spaced approximately two months (six to eight weeks) apart to see visible results.

The laser prevents hairs in the growth stage; and the ones that are dead will move out after a few weeks. So by the time you go to your next appointment, the hairs that were in their growing stage are now in their latent death stage. In general, if you follow all the rules and receive your treatments in the recommended time frame, men can see 50 to 85 percent permanent hair reduction and benefits that laser hair removal offers.
