Over recent years male grooming has progressed from hair-cut and nose-hair trimming to be something many men take very seriously. Permanent hair reduction treatments are increasingly popular.
There are several common reasons for men to opt for hair removal, these include:
High hair density in the ‘wrong place’. If you are a very hairy person, this might mean you have lots of hair where you don’t really want it, such as on the shoulders.
Cosmetic reasons: after spending hours in the gym you find you achieve a ‘hairy gorilla’ physique when you were shooting for something more refined.
Comfort: too much hair in the crotch and bottom regions can be uncomfortable and cause irritation and related problems.
Women have things relatively easy when it comes to hair removal, as they tend to start removing unwanted hair at school and can easily talk to friends. Men normally don’t know where to start and find themselves at a loss as to what to do about too much hair or hair in the wrong place. But now this is no longer a taboo subject or just for bodybuilders, cyclists and swimmers, more and more men are taking hair removal seriously. Some quotes from our practitioners:
“Popular areas for men recently have been areas around the ears and the back of the neck, as well as backs.”
“Most men utilise IPL permanent hair reduction for the back, upper arms, and chest and most want it thinned out, not removed -- something which IPL can easily accomplish."
“We are seeing more men asking for one of the most popular female treatments, the ‘bikini line’. The main reason is to ‘tidy up’ the look ‘down there’, I think it’s great that more men are taking care of their appearance and care about the impression they make physically.”
IPL treatment is a low maintenance solution and is a natural choice for many of the common areas men want treating. It can also work for situations where you are looking for hair reduction in certain areas as the treatment can be both very specific and the number of sessions can be adjusted to reach whatever goal you are looking for. Our practitioners will be able to answer all of your questions and advise on the best way to proceed. Contact us or call us for a confidential chat. We are happy to talk and you will be under no obligation to have an IPL session.
