Male Laser Hair Removal
Some men wish to remove hair to improve comfort, while others wish to make their bodies more streamlined for sporting or aesthetic purposes. Whatever your reason, laser hair treatment is fast and cost-effective and removes the discomfort and irritation from regular shaving or waxing.
Laser hair removal is becoming increasingly popular among men due to its advantages when compared with these more traditional methods. Shaving is the most common method of hair removal for men, particularly for facial hair, but also elsewhere on the body, such as the chest or abdomen. However, the effects of shaving are short-lived and it can produce razor nicks, ingrowing hairs and other problems. Some men use waxing treatments on the body, but these can be very painful and also do not produce long-term results.
By contrast, laser hair removal is more long-lasting and is considered by many to cause less discomfort. It can also be used on areas that are almost impossible to maintain regularly, such as the back.
The most common areas for male laser hair removal are the back, beard and chest, although we are able to treat all body areas with the laser.
Treatments by body area
The length and cost of each procedure varies depending on the size of the area being treated. The most common treatment time is 30 minutes, but for larger areas it may take up to two hours for a treatment,
For smaller areas, such as parts of the face or neck, the actual procedure can take as little as 5 or 10 minutes.

We use the Lumenis lightsheer diode system which is FDA approved and regarded as the gold standard in laser hair removal. Patients will need an average of six treatments spaced between 4 – 8 weeks apart.
Face: beard, upper lip, chin, jawline, nose, ears, neck – up to ten minutes.
These areas are extremely quick to treat. Laser hair removal is not recommended for treatments around the eyes. Tweezing, waxing and threading are best for eyebrow reshaping.
Body: chest, abdomen, arms, back and shoulders, legs – 30 to 60 minutes.
These are large areas to maintain with regular shaving or waxing. Laser hair removal avoids irritation of nicks, cuts and ingrowing hairs – and frequently repeated applications.
Laser hair removal in the genital area is less painful than waxing and can be applied in whichever pattern the candidate prefers.
