The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal

In recent years, there has been a remarkable shift in societal attitudes towards grooming and self-care among men. A prominent example of this transformation is the increasing popularity of laser hair removal. Once considered exclusively a female domain, this advanced hair removal technique has gained traction among men, offering a convenient and long-lasting solution to unwanted body hair. At the Laser Club we treat many male clients who either want to shape their beards, remove unwanted body hair, or achieve less hair in certain areas.


The Rise of Laser Hair Removal Among Men: Breaking Stereotypes

Traditionally, the concept of men undergoing hair removal treatments was often met with scepticism. However, the modern man embraces grooming as an essential aspect of self-care, leading to a surge in the demand for laser hair removal. This trend reflects a societal shift towards inclusivity, where people are breaking free from conventional gender norms and embracing practices that enhance their appearance and confidence.

At the Laser Club we will treat anyone regardless of gender identity or expression and welcome anyone through our doors.


The Science Behind Laser Hair Removal: A Closer Look

Laser hair removal is based on the principle of selective photo thermolysis, a process that targets specific structures within the hair follicles while sparing the surrounding skin. The treatment involves the use of a concentrated beam of light, usually a laser, which is absorbed by the pigment (melanin) present in the hair. This energy is then converted into heat, effectively damaging the hair follicle, and inhibiting future hair growth.

At the Laser Club we use the PrimeLase Laser hair removal machine which is the strongest diode on the market so we know we can get our clients the best results in a quick, effective, and safe way.


Commonly Treated Areas: Where Laser Hair Removal Shines

At the Laser Club we treat many male clients with our incredible Primelase machine. We have many male clients who are sick of waxing or constantly shaving leaving them with rashes, in grown hairs or the wasted time and money of keeping up with it constantly.

Back and Shoulders: Many men opt for laser hair removal on their back and shoulders to achieve a cleaner, smoother appearance. The broad treatment area and coarse hair often make these regions ideal candidates for the procedure.

Chest: Laser hair removal on the chest is a popular choice among men seeking a well-groomed look without the hassle of regular shaving or waxing.

Face and Neck: While facial hair is a symbol of masculinity, laser hair removal can help sculpt and define facial hairlines. Some men choose to target specific areas like the beard or neck for a more polished appearance.

The Laser Hair Removal Process: What to Expect at the Laser Club

At The Laser Club you will always need to come for a free consultation and patch test at least 24 hours before any treatment can start. This is where you will fill out a medical form and check that you are a suitable candidate for laser hair removal. We will also explain any before and after dos and don’ts for laser hair removal.

Preparation: Before the procedure, you need to shave 2-24 hours before the treatment area and avoid sun exposure two weeks prior and after. This helps ensure the laser energy is effectively absorbed by the hair follicles.

Treatment: During your session at the Laser Club one of our expert therapists will use the Primelase machine to target the area you are being treated and will skim the skins surface only once as our machine is so powerful. It has a cooling tip to help with any discomfort.

Aftercare: Following the treatment, you may experience mild redness or irritation, which typically subsides within a few hours. It’s essential to follow post-treatment instructions provided by your provider to ensure optimal results.
