Men turn to nationally known dermatologist for laser hair removal
When hair grows out of control, tweezing, shaving, waxing, or plucking may no longer be sufficient. Men, as well as women, experience unwanted hair growth. Fortunately, a dermatologist can provide laser hair removal and help patients attain their desired results. Dr. Jeanine Downie, nationally known dermatologist and founder of image Dermatology® in Montclair, is happy to help men in Glen Ridge and the surrounding areas attain smooth skin with laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal treatment for men
Whether it is for the chest or back, more men are opting for laser hair removal. Many of our male patients do not want all of their hair removed but prefer to have it thinned. This makes laser removal an ideal treatment. Men often have hair thinned on their chest, back, and arms. Dr. Downie recommends 5 to 15 treatment sessions depending on the thickness of the hair and the amount the patients wish to have removed.
Benefits of laser hair removal
Benefits of laser hair removal include:
- Safe, effective treatment – We use lasers to target hair without damaging the skin.
- Convenience – Men can undergo a treatment during a lunch break. The laser can treat multiple hairs simultaneously. We can treat small areas of the face in a minute, whereas the back or chest may take up to an hour.
- Achieving desired results – What are your goals? We will create a treatment plan with you. Most patients will eventually experience permanent hair loss. Others enjoy thinner hair on their back, chest, and arms.
Preparing for treatment
After a consultation appointment, Dr. Downie will work with you to decide if laser removal is right for you. If it is, she will recommend avoiding sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment. Sun exposure reduces the effects of treatment. It is also important to limit plucking or waxing, which temporarily removes hair roots.
Ask yourself the following questions: Would you like thinner hair on your chest, back, or arms? Do you want unwanted hair removed permanently? Laser hair removal may be your solution.
