Laser Hair Removal for Men is Gaining in Popularity

Some men aren’t particularly hairy. Maybe you want to reduce some unwanted hair. Years ago laser hair removal for men was typically performed for enhancement of athletic performance for swimmers, cyclists and most commonly for bodybuilders.

As laser hair removal is growing in popularity, men from all professions and walks of life and are discovering that they can be more attractive and sexier by losing that excessive body hair.

Statistics Show Men Choosing Laser Hair Removal is on the Rise

Laser hair removal for men has increased 43% since 2000.

Over 1.1 million laser hair removal procedures on men were recorded in a survey of 1160 plastic surgeons and dermatologists. The true number of men who have had laser hair removal in 2013 is much higher. Laser hair removal chains and med spas were excluded from this small survey.

Why are more men choosing laser hair removal?

Let’s talk for a minute about self image … about going outside without a shirt. One male patient told me that his children had never seen him without a shirt. After his first laser treatment, he went outside and cut his grass shirtless for the first time since he was a young boy.

Another patient told me that he developed hair on his back when he was a sophomore in college and had never had it prior to that time. He always thought that having back hair was an old man’s problem. Suddenly at a young age, he found himself having to deal with it because it had prevented him from dating and intimacy.

Women Don’t Like Back Hair

The plain fact is that women don’t like body hair and don’t find it attractive. For men, laser hair removal can give you an increased level of sexual confidence but also makes you feel more comfortable in social situations where you have to take your shirt off.

Another true example of how this affects men’s lives is seen with the story of a male patient of ours who is presently going through a divorce. His wife told him that one of the reasons that she didn’t want to be with him any longer was that she no longer felt he was attractive. She mentioned his body hair as an example.

One of our city’s professional athletes told us that he was ridiculed in the locker room because of the hair on his back. After his first treatment, he brought three teammates who also loved their results. They ended up bringing their wives who had laser hair removal and were equally as happy with their new “look”.

laser hair removal for menSometimes You Just Want Your Back or Chest Hair Thinned Out

Men often don’t want it all removed. In many cases they just want the hair thinned out on their chest and back and that’s easy for us to do. It is less expensive to just have it thinned out.  You can have it thinned a little or as much as you want.

Another example is the hair on the back of the neck. Men often get a haircut just to clean up the scruff on their neck. After laser hair removal those clean ups are no longer necessary which saves you time and money.
