Alert the media — laser hair removal isn’t just for women! Men have reaped the benefits of laser hair removal for at least a decade and with spring and summer around the corner, there’s no time like the present! In this article, we’ll be exploring the common areas men get laser hair removal at Toronto’s Elements Spa and why men of all ages and ethnicities love the results they achieve with our laser hair removal specialists.

Laser hair removal has become increasingly popular for men. At Elements Spa, our team specializes in treating men’s hair. If you’re sick and tired of shaving, waxing, and using pungent depilatory creams then laser hair removal may prove to be a cost- and time-effective option for you. Our tailored procedure can treat most areas of unwanted hair on the face and body including the back, neck, chest, arms, legs, and more. Because laser hair removal is technically a ‘medical procedure,’ it is vitally important that you choose a medically-led clinic like board-certified cosmetic plastic surgeon Dr. Adibfar’s Elements Spa. This ensures a safe and effective treatment, as well as the best possible long-term results.

Laser hair removal is a state-of-the-art treatment for permanently reducing the amount of unwanted hair. Many men struggle with inflammation of hair follicles and ingrown hairs which can be quite uncomfortable. Laser hair removal proves to these men a freeing treatment because they don’t have ingrown hairs on their collars or any other areas. Many men also simply do not want hair on their backs. Back hair can cause many men to feel itchy and bothersome causing acne and other bacteria to fester. Waxing the back is also quite painful and only provides a temporary solution. Many athletes also seek laser hair removal to reduce the amount of hair on their arms and legs.

Essentially, laser hair removal offers a permanent reduction of hair in treated areas. To ensure the laser energy penetrates the hair follicle the area must be shaved before treatment so that the laser has access to the root of each hair. During your laser hair removal session, a laser emits a light that is absorbed by the pigment in the hair. The light energy is then converted to heat which in turn damages the hair follicles that produce hair. This damage essentially stops and/or reduces future hair growth over time.

At Elements Spa we suggest a minimum series of 6 treatments to catch each hair in the appropriate phase of growth. The sessions are typically spaced once every four to six weeks with no need for downtime.

Our patients are incredibly thrilled with their results. After a full series of recommended sessions, these men no longer need to shave specific areas daily and can spend their time doing more important things every day. These men feel more confident in their appearance as well as experience more free time as shaving, waxing, and the application of hair removal creams were very time-consuming.
