Many dermatologists across the nation are seeing a boost in their male clientele who seek laser hair removal as technology has advanced. Initial laser hair removal could only comfortably manage small areas, such as the underarms or bikini line. However, lasers with larger target areas are making it feasible to remove hair from areas commonly of concern to men, such as the chest and back.
Pseudofolliculitis barbae, characterized by irritation of the skin and in-grown hairs, is a common condition in men that can be well treated by laser hair removal. Improvement is often noted after just one treatment, with several treatments usually yielding long lasting results.
Laser hair removal is just as effective for men as it is for women, and many men are turning to their dermatologist for hair removal rather than spending money on shaving, waxing, trimming hair. If you’re interested in laser hair removal, contact Dr. Zimmet’s office.
