Manscaping: what to know about laser hair removal
It’s not just women looking to part ways with their excess body hair.
Some men are just as eager to pay a visit to the spa to have unwanted hair in areas such as their chest, back, neck, and face removed.
For men wanting to avoid the discomfort associated with waxing, laser hair removal is a popular cosmetic treatment alternative available at Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.
“It’s less painful and has long-lasting results,” said Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna.
How does it work? Through the process, a laser targets the hair follicles and heats them with infrared energy. The patient’s skin is rapidly treated and hundreds of hair follicles can be disabled in less than one second. Laser hair removal can treat larger areas such as the back and legs, as well as smaller areas such as the face and underarms.
Hair growth takes place in cycles of growth and resting phases. Because only actively growing hair can be removed at each treatment session, several sessions will be necessary.
Want to cap off your manscaping session with some products? Eterna’s male clients have a few favorites.
“Generally, the men like the Oil Free Cleanser from Avene,” Malinowski said.
The gentle gel cleanser effectively removes impurities without stripping the skin.
Avene’s A-Oxitive Antioxidant Defense Serum is another favored product.
“It is very light and has no scent and will protect their skin from aging,” Malinowski said.
Men can top off their skin with the Obagi SPF Matte Sunscreen, which provides a high level of protection against harmful UVA and UVB rays. The non-greasy, PABA-free, and fragrance-free formula is ideal for all skin types and applies completely sheer.
