Get Beach Body Ready
Many men find the hair on their body becomes thinner and more noticeable as they age. Some use a razor or waxing to help keep conditions under control, but both are temporary treatments that can become bothersome over time. That’s why Cosmetic Plastic Surgery of Illinois offers Laser Hair Removal for Men as a more permanent hair removal solution.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
Laser Hair Removal puts an end to routine shaving and waxing using an intense pulsed light (IPL) process that removes the unwanted hair. This specifically filtered, pulsed light destroys the hair follicles and cells that grow new hair resulting in smoother, younger-looking, hair-free skin. Areas for treatment include anywhere hair grows.
Laser Hair Removal Results
Each hair removal treatment will eliminate about 15-20% of the hair follicles permanently. Because hair cycles through active and resting phases, only hair that is in the active phase of growth at the time of treatment will be destroyed. That’s why it can take several treatments before full results are realized. A typical regimen includes 4-6 treatments with 6-8 week intervals. By the sixth treatment, most clients see a 90% hair reduction. Treatments are quick, permanent and less expensive in the long run. Follow-up visits may be needed to maintain results once or twice a year. Result duration is eventually permanent.
