A well-groomed appearance is important in business as well as socially. Beyond that, some men just naturally have too much body hair for their own sense of style or their partner’s aesthetic taste.
If you’re not someone who cheerfully puts up with a time-consuming hair maintenance routine, you’ve found the permanent hair removal solution for men: electrolysis.
How long is each treatment session?
Treatment sessions can range from 15 minutes to more than an hour, depending on the area being treated. Based on a thorough and confidential consultation, a professional electrologist will provide you with a tailored treatment plan that will address your specific areas of concern.
How do I know that I’m getting good treatments?
The electrologist should explain all aspects of the treatments, recommend a treatment schedule that will help you accomplish your hair removal goals, and explain how to take care of the treated skin.
Generally speaking, you should not feel the insertion of the probe into the hair follicle, nor should you feel like the hair is being pulled out when it is removed; the hair will usually slide out of the follicle when properly treated.
You skin will likely be red after treatment. The redness should dissipate within the day. Your skin should not be unduly irritated and will heal normally if a few precautions are taken, as should be discussed during your consultation. If you have any questions, the electrologist should be happy to answer them to your satisfaction.
Electrolysis for athletes
In athletic competition, even a fraction of a second can make a difference. A streamlined profile can cut down on wind or water friction, provide a comfortable “feel” during athletic activity and make hygiene easier. Experts also say that athletes who participate in a sport which produces chafing could find some relief through hair removal.
The trend of widespread body hair removal, from back to arm and leg hair to the pubic region—even going totally bare—is most common among swimmers, cyclists and triathletes.
Athletes who turn to hair removal for improved athletic performance may choose to commit to weekly upkeep. But for those who would like the convenience of a permanent solution, electrolysis is the only effective option. Other methods may reduce the amount of hair but only electrolysis provides permanent hair removal.
