Did You Know…
Just before the laser is fired, a jet of frozen air is sent to the skin to protect the skin from the laser energy and to decrease the pain.
The idea behind the CoolSculpt machine started after doctors noticed that children who sucked on popsicles lost the fat in their cheeks without damage to the skin. It is amazing what can develop from a simple observation.
In the past some doctors tried to dye the patient hair dark so that more of the laser energy would be absorbed by the hair and thereby the laser would more effectively remove the hair. Unfortunately, it did not work because the dye did not reach the hair follicle.
The same laser that is used for hair removal, can get rid of toe nail fungus.
In the 1450s, women would shave their pubic hair to get rid of lice. And then they would have a pubic hair wig made as a replacement.
Neurotoxins are medications developed from the bacteria known as clostridium botulinum. Researchers noticed that people infected with this bacterium had suffered muscle weakness. Dysport and Botox have been developed from this discovery.
The light from a hair removal laser passes through the skin and is absorbed by the hair follicle. The laser energy is absorbed by the hair follicle and is destroyed. Since people have different skin colors, we need to have lasers with a variety of colors of laser light.
A tan can absorb some of the energy of laser light and prevent the laser light from reaching the hair follicle. Do not get a tan before laser hair removal.
The word “Cosmetic” is derived from the Greek word “Kosmos” which means “of this world.”

Laser Hair Removal – Who’s Doing It and Why?

Self-confidence.  Doing something for yourself.  Part of your regular personal care routine.  For a variety of reasons, women and a dramatically increasing number of men are using laser hair removal to eliminate unwanted hair from the face and body.

When’s the last time you caught a glimpse of your physical image in a full-length mirror? For most men body hair issues influence self-esteem, personal preference and confidence.  Laser hair removal can improve how you feel about yourself, which is why more men are including hair removal from Fremont Laser & Skin Care as part of their grooming routine.

Create the Best Image of Yourself

For years, hair removal for men was seen strictly as an athletic routine.  Sports authorities agree having less hair on your body helps to increase performance in sports.  Athletic speed is still a factor. However today, men’s body images are more socialized and women are more outspoken about it.  These are two of the simplest reasons for why men are removing unwanted body hair.

Laser hair removal can completely remove or thin out particular areas where the hair tends to be dense.  The back and shoulder areas can be thinned by blending the hair growth pattern to the upper arms.  The process is customized for the person.

Facial hair growth patterns are as individual as the man.  Depending on the hair’s density, laser treatments can improve the texture of your skin.  The results are a younger and healthier appearance.  Treatments also diminish five o’clock shadow.  Some men have experienced fewer ingrown hairs making it easier to get a clean shave with fewer nicks.  Don’t forget about the uni-brow.  It’s now possible to remove the unwanted hair and shape both of your eyebrows.

Men’s Hair Myths

It is true most men do worry about unwanted hair. Not paying attention to it doesn’t make it less noticeable. The advancements in personal care have made the treatments more available and comfortable. Make this the year you man-up and boost your self-confidence.

Technology has a solution for removing hair from all parts of your body. The treatment targets the hair root. This specialized process is the reason laser hair removal lasts longer compared to other hair removal options. The extension of time between treatments helps to maintain your physical appearance longer.  The most commonly treated areas are men’s backs, shoulders, chests, beards and necklines.

Like everyone else, there are parts of your body you enjoy and parts you could do without. Laser hair removal isn’t just for women. It’s time to make an appointment or schedule your free consultation with Fremont Laser & Skin Care.
