How Laser Hair Removal Works


Laser hair removal is a non-invasive procedure that uses concentrated light to target and destroy hair follicles. The laser’s energy is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, which then heats up and destroys the follicle. This process inhibits future hair growth, leading to long-lasting results. It’s important to note that laser hair removal works best on darker hair, as the laser targets the pigment (melanin) in the hair.

Treatable Areas


One of the great advantages of laser hair removal is its versatility. It can be used to treat virtually any area of the body. For men, common areas include the back, chest, shoulders, neck, and face. However, it’s also effective for smaller areas like the upper lip, underarms, or even the bikini line. At Canova Medical, we tailor our treatments to your specific needs and preferences, ensuring a personalised experience.

Number of Treatments Required


The number of treatments required for optimal results varies from person to person. It largely depends on the area being treated, the density and coarseness of the hair, and individual hormonal factors. On average, most men require between 6 and 8 sessions, spaced 4 to 6 weeks apart. However, you’ll start noticing a reduction in hair growth after the first few sessions.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal for Men


Laser hair removal offers numerous benefits. It’s a long-term solution for unwanted body hair, saving you time and money on shaving or waxing. It also helps to prevent ingrown hairs and razor burn, leading to smoother, healthier-looking skin. For athletes, it can enhance performance by reducing friction and improving hygiene. Plus, thanks to our state-of-the-art technology, the Soprano Titanium, the treatment is virtually painless, with most clients describing the sensation as a slight tingling or snapping against the skin.

Duration of Laser Hair Removal Sessions


The duration of a laser hair removal session can vary based on the size of the area being treated. Smaller areas like the upper lip or underarms can be treated in as little as 10 minutes, while larger areas like the back or chest may take up to an hour.

Preparation Tips for Laser Hair Removal


Preparing for your laser hair removal session can help to enhance the results. It’s recommended to shave the area being treated a day or two before your session, as this allows the laser to better target the hair follicle. Avoid sun exposure and tanning products for at least two weeks prior to treatment, as these can increase the risk of skin irritation. On the day of your session at our Wilmslow clinic, come with clean skin free of any lotions, creams, or deodorants.

The laser machine is pain-free: it works by destroying the hair follicles, but without burning the dermis of the skin.

Before a laser hair removal session, it is generally recommended to shave the area to be treated a day or two before your appointment. This is because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle, and the follicle can be more easily targeted when the hair is short. However, the hair should not be waxed or plucked as this removes the follicle, which is necessary for the laser treatment to be effective.

What should you wear to a laser hair removal session on the back or chest?

When going for a laser hair removal session, it’s best to wear loose and comfortable clothing. This will help to avoid any irritation on the treated area post-session. For treatments on the back or chest, it might be a good idea to wear a button-down shirt or something similar that does not need to be pulled over the head. This will make it easier to undress and dress before and after the session, and will also minimize contact with the treated area.

Is there a difference in the duration of a laser hair removal session for men and women?


The duration of a laser hair removal session can vary based on several factors, including the size of the area being treated, the type of hair, and the specific individual’s pain tolerance. However, generally speaking, there is not a significant difference in the duration of a session between men and women. Both may require multiple sessions to achieve the desired results, and each session can last anywhere from a few minutes for smaller areas to an hour or more for larger areas.
