IPL for men – Hair removal without ingrown hairs

Body hair removal for men is one of the fastest growing areas of the grooming market. Men around the world are waking up to the fact that smooth skin isn’t just for women anymore. Whether it’s back hair or uneven ‘plumes’ of hair on your shoulders you can be rid of it.

Hair removal options

For the hair on your face, there’s pretty much just two methods to select – an electric shaver or razor. There are many more options for body hair removal. Waxing, sugaring, epilators and creams, to name a few, but all of these options come with serious downsides. Waxing hurts and is really high maintenance as you have to go back every month. Epilators are the same, although you don’t need to book appointments, you still need to maintain it. If you’re getting rid of hair on your back, you’ll need a very patient partner to do it for you! Not only are all these hair removal methods messy and inconvenient, but you also have to deal with something that women don’t have to worry about as much – you’re far, far more likely to get ingrown hairs.  Men’s skin is much thicker than women’s, and your hair is a lot thicker too, which makes new growth much more likely to get stuck, causing painful red spots all over your skin. But there is another way….

IPL Hair Reduction

Using specialised light filters to deactivate the hair follicles, IPL is a fuss-free, permanent hair reduction option. All you have to do is turn up for your treatments, and the expertly trained therapist will use a specialised handset to shine pulses of light into your skin  – it’s as simple as that. And importantly, once you finish your IPL treatments, you don’t have to worry about ingrown hairs! Rather than cutting the hairs or pulling them out, IPL stops your follicles from producing hair in the first place, which means there’s nothing to get stuck in your skin. It’s the perfect choice if you want to enjoy fuzz-free skin without hassle, ingrown hairs or inconvenient upkeep. 

IPL for your face

Now, while it’s not a good idea to get IPL hair reduction done on your face (it’s permanent, so if you change your mind one day and want to grow a beard, you won’t be able to) there are lots of other IPL treatments you can have done on your face – such as Photorejuvenation, which is ideal for helping to reduce spots, scarring, areas of pigmentation from sun damage (did you know that 50% of men never wear sunscreen?!) and fine lines and wrinkles. When you inquire about IPL Hair Reduction, make sure you ask the therapist about Photorejuvenation too! Find your nearest therapist now.
