How Does Laser Hair Removal Work
In order to show you why this procedure is equally effective for any gender, we will start by explaining how it works and why it's done.
As you know, laser hair removal is used to reduce unwanted hair. Common treatment locations include legs, armpits, upper lip, chin, and the bikini. However, it's possible to treat unwanted hair in almost any area (except around the eyes). During the procedure, a laser beam that is attracted to pigment, destroys her follicle, inhibiting or delaying future hair growth.The procedure can be performed on anyone with extra body hair.
The Popularity of Laser Hair Removal Among Men
Recently, the interest in laser hair removal among men has risen. Men are increasingly embracing grooming practices that were considered exclusively for women. The latest studies show that almost 84% of males have a positive attitude towards the procedure and would go through with it themselves. We expect this trend to continue growing.
Let's see which are the preferred areas for hair removal in men:
Front and back of the neck
Back and shoulders
Chest and abdomen
In between eyebrows

Addressing Common Concerns
Another myth about laser hair removal is that it is a painful procedure. That is even more often said when it comes to men. In reality, modern technology allows us to reduce the pain to the maximum extent possible. The discomfort experienced during the procedure is often compared to snapping a rubber band against the skin. Still, you should consider that Pain might vary depending on the extent of tolerance and sensitivity of an individual's skin.
