Unwanted hair can be embarrassing for men, especially when it is abundant or growing in the wrong places. These problems most often arise in people with light skin and dark hair, although anyone can experience excessive or unwanted hair on the face or body.
There are several treatment options available for men seeking a long-term solution. Laser hair removal exposes specific areas of the body to beams of laser light that disable active hair follicles and delay or prevent re-growth. Ideal for patients with dark skin, this procedure effectively removes unwanted hair after a series of treatment sessions. Electrolysis can also achieve hair removal, and it is quick, safe and causes little discomfort. During the procedure, a tiny probe is inserted into the hair follicle, where it delivers radio frequency energy that heats the hair matrix until it coagulates. The hair is removed after a series of weekly treatments.
