By Milan Laser Hair Removal By Milan Laser Hair Removal | October 12, 2022

If you’re not one of the men embracing hairiness, you’re likely sick of daily grooming. See why laser hair removal is the best solution for avoiding constant maintenance.


Managing unwanted hair can be a lot of work. And while women make up a large portion of laser hair removal clients, they’re not the only ones who deal with stubble woes. Laser hair removal for men has become more mainstream, and many are signing up to get zapped. To learn more about laser hair removal for men, we spoke to Chicago’s laser hair removal experts at Milan Laser Hair Removal to get the inside scoop on becoming permanently smooth.

How does laser hair removal for men work?

Laser hair removal literally gets to the root of the problem of unwanted hair. A laser pulse is delivered directly to the targeted area during laser hair removal treatments, and a controlled amount of heat safely and effectively damages the follicles. Because the hair follicle is destroyed at the source, it can never grow again-ever.

And guess what? Laser hair removal works on all skin tones when performed properyly. But not all laser hair removal providers are equal, so do your research and find one with the technologies to treat the entire skin tone spectrum. For example, Milan Laser uses the Candela GentleMax Pro, which includes two lasers- the Nd: YAG for brown to black skin and the Alexandrite for lighter skin tones. That way, places like Milan Laser can creaete a tailored treatment plan for a client's exact skin tone.


What's the cost of laser hair removal compared to waxing and shaving?

Men get in the habit of shaving and even going to waxing appointments, but they don’t sit and do the math on what’s being thrown away on temporary results. The average person spends 39 hours a year shaving and $3,800 over a lifetime on shaving essentials. For waxing appointments at salons, you’re looking at $24,000 over a lifetime.

Laser hair removal, on the other hand, is an investment rather than an expense. We say that because, over time, laser hair removal saves you time and money with permanent results. The average Milan Laser client is 95%+ hair-free within seven to 10 treatments. To get the best value for your money, take advantage of places that offer laser hair removal specials and payment plans. For instance, Milan Laser offers everyone affordable laser hair removal payment plans.

What are the most common areas men get treated?

This is up to personal preference, of course, but we see many men getting laser hair removal treatments in a variety of areas. Some of the most common areas where men get laser hair removal are their backs, face, chest and shoulders, just to name a few. These are also the areas where men risk getting razor burn, irritated skin, and ingrown hairs.

Laser hair removal can be done anywhere below the eyes, and doesn't come close to the pain of waxing, as most people will do anything to avoid. We read so many laser hair removal reviews from clients who insist laser hair removal treatments are either painless or feel like a sting similar to rubber band snapping against the skin, but only for a milisecond-the time it takes for the laser to zap your hair.


What are the benefits of laser hair removal for men?

By now you’ve learned that laser hair removal benefits for men are tenfold compared to other hair removal methods. Laser hair removal for men is a small investment of time and pays off big in the long run. Other hair removal methods will leave you with the dreaded stubble, unappealing skin irritation, and inevitable regrowth requiring constant maintenance.

Laser hair removal is safe, effective, and gives you permanent, lifelong results. Ready to quit the neverending upkeep? Give Milan Laser a call at 833-NO-RAZOR or go in for a FREE consultation.
