Fort Collins Laser Hair Removal for Men

Too much hair growth can lead to feelings of anxiety and knocked confidence. This can prevent men from engaging in activities where their hair is on show, like swimming, going to the beach, or hitting the gym.

Lots of men come to us after trying all of the traditional methods like shaving, waxing, or using hair removal cream, which can wreak havoc with our skin. These methods are not only inefficient, but they also take up time and need to be repeated often.

For those of us with busy lives and schedules, this can become annoying, painful, and ingrown hairs can interfere with our daily tasks.

If you are looking for a simpler, more permanent solution, laser hair removal may be the perfect choice.

At Xanadu Med Spa, Fort Collins, CO, we offer laser hair removal for both men and women, utilizing the most cutting-edge laser systems on the market.

Our Cutera Excel HR allows for rapid treatment to almost every area of the body and comes with innovative cool technology that makes the process practically painless and results in little to no side effects or downtime.

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a non-invasive treatment, designed to remove hair in a more permanent manner over several sessions. It is done using a specialized laser beam that targets the hair follicles.

After a certain amount of sessions, the hair in that specific area will stop growing completely.

Laser hair removal treatments are approved by the FDA and can be used on the following parts of the body:

  • Facial Hair.

  • Neck.

  • Arms.

  • Back.

  • Chest.

  • Legs.

  • Ingrown Hair.

How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Laser hair removal works through the use of a specialized laser that can be set to target the dark pigments that lie at the root of the hair. By doing this the follicles are destroyed, and this prevents new growth from happening.

How Many Treatments Will It Take?

Laser hair removal will take several sessions over a couple of months to maximize the effects.

This is because human hair grows in cycles, with some of our follicles lying dormant while other follicles are active. To provide the best possible results, we will have to stagger your sessions to target all of your follicles.

The actual number of sessions will depend upon several factors:

  • How large the area is.

  • How fast your hair grows naturally.

  • The amount of hair that needs to be treated.

On average, patients usually require between four and six treatments, and the sessions will be carried out monthly.

In certain cases, there may be a need for more treatments.

Is There Anyone Who Shouldn’t Get Laser Hair Removal?

Even though this is an extremely safe procedure, there are still a few exceptions. You will not be able to have laser hair removal if you:

  • Are pregnant.

  • Have an active rash or sunburn in the treatment area.

  • Are taking Accutane.

Who Can Get a Laser Hair Removal Procedure?

Laser hair removal will work on every skin type and every hair type.

The results may be slightly less effective for those that have lighter (red, blonde, gray) and more effective for those that have dark brown hair types as the laser targets the melanin inside the follicles.

What Are the Benefits?

When you shave, wax, or use hair removal cream, it often results in a sore and irritated area, full of stubble. What’s worse, you have to repeat the process regularly.

With laser hair removal treatment, there are a number of advantages:

The first major advantage is that laser systems are much more precise, they do not miss or leave stray hairs.

The next big advantage is speed and efficiency. During your treatment, your practitioner can target up to an inch by inch square of skin every single second that they are using the lasers.

Finally, laser hair removal offers long-lasting, near-permanent results.

Laser hair removal is simply the most efficient and cost-effective treatment for ridding yourself of unwanted hair.

Will Laser Treatments Cause any Damage to My Skin?

Here at Xanadu Med Spa, we use the Cutera excel HR with sapphire contact cooling technology.

This means that although there may be some reddening of the skin following your treatment, the cooling technology will drastically reduce irritation, and the redness will fade within a couple of hours, leaving no damage to the skin.

Is Laser Hair Removal Painful?

Most clients, when they come out of their treatment, are surprised by how little it hurts, and how quickly it’s over. They describe the pain as similar to being flicked with an elastic band.

There is no pain following the treatment, simply a mild itch, and redness that will fade quickly in the hours and days following the treatment.

How Long Will Recovery Time Be?

One of the biggest benefits to this form of laser hair removal treatment is that there is almost zero downtime. In fact, you can go about your normal day immediately after treatment, meaning you can fit it into your lunch break or before work.

In terms of the results, the hair will start to properly fall out in the 21 days following the treatment.

In terms of aftercare during this time, you should avoid direct exposure to sunlight and you should not wax or tweeze your hair for the entirety of the treatment period.

Is it Weird for Guys to Get Laser Hair Removal?

Not at all. In fact, a huge percentage of our laser hair removal clients are men.

Some men want hair removal treatment in order to feel more confident when they go to the beach or the gym

Some men come to us for laser hair removal for performance in swimming and cycling.

We are in the modern age, and no man should feel weird seeking treatment that will improve their confidence.

Does Laser Permanently Remove Pubic Hair?

Our body is extremely efficient at healing and replacing damaged cells within the body.

This means that laser hair removal is a long-term solution instead of being truly permanent.

Laser hair removal provides the longest results against unwanted hair, but within several years you may need a follow-up session for it to be truly permanent.

What Kind of Lasers Does Xanadu Med Spa, Fort Collins Use?

Xanadu Med Spa uses the Cutera excel HR™ Laser to remove unwanted hair.

How Do I Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?

If you tweeze or wax your hairs, you will need to stop doing so throughout the entire treatment period apart from 24 hours before your session, when you should shave the area.

Laser Treatment Hair Removal Body Areas

Laser pulse treatment works on almost every area of the body, including:

Beard and Facial Hair

If you have to shave every single day because your beard grows so quickly or if your facial hair and eyebrows grow too quickly, it can quickly become a chore.

Shaving every day can lead to irritation and soreness too, making laser hair removal the perfect option, leaving skin smooth.

Common treatment areas that we treat here at Xanadu Med Spa include:

  • Neckline.

  • Full beard.

  • Back of the neck.

Arm Hair

If your arm hair is particularly thick, it may not be pleasing in terms of your aesthetic to you.

Thankfully our Fort Collins laser treatment can reduce the appearance of arm hair to a level that you are happy with.

Unwanted Body Hair (Back Hair, Stomach Hair)

Lots of men come to us with severe confidence issues due to the amount of hair they have on certain parts of their bodies. The most common being the back and stomach.

Waxing and shaving these larger areas can take hours and can lead to discomfort due to the size of the area.

The most efficient and speedy way to remove this hair is to seek laser hair removal treatments.

As we target the hair follicle, it means you will no longer need to spend hours of your day shaving the larger areas of your body to feel confident or beach-ready.

Bikini Line Laser Hair Permanent Removal

When you are going to the beach or on holiday, everyone should be able to feel sexy and confident in their swimwear.

Bikini hair laser treatment is one of the most popular treatments we administer here at our Fort Collins Med Spa Facility.

Leg Hair

Some men dislike having large amounts of leg hair. This may be down to aesthetics or because of sporting reasons like swimming or cycling.

For these, laser removal is by far the quickest and most efficient way to solve the problem.
