What Men Need to Know about Hair Removal

Experts report that more and more men are opting for the same grooming rights as women – including smooth body skin. “Most men don’t necessarily want it all removed, but increasingly they do want it thinned out, on their back and chest, for example,” says dermatologist David Goldberg, MD, who regularly performs laser hair removal on men.  In this article from Wellaholic and curated by the Tropika Club team, we are going to share on the various options of hair removal for men.

WHY ARE MEN OPTING FOR HAIR REMOVAL?

Excessive Body Hair and Aesthetics – Laser hair removal is appealing for men who are uncomfortable with excess hair on their back, chest, stomach, or all over. And let’s clear up a misconception: Laser hair removal doesn’t have to leave you looking like a hairless fitness model (unless you want it to). A lot of guys treat their chest, not because they want to get rid of their hair completely, but they like to thin it out they want it to be finer and sparser.

Ingrown Hairs – A lot of guys want to have less hair to make shaving easier, especially if they get ingrown hairs on their neck. Laser is the only way to effectively treat a condition called PFD, pseudofolliculitis barbae. Clusters of inflamed, red, or dark bumps will appear around hair follicles from shaving. Ingrown hairs cause red, often itchy bumps where a hair has grown back into the skin. There are things you can do to treat and prevent them and in most cases you will not need to a see a doctor or specialist for treatment. Essentially, they’re ingrown hairs that grow in all sorts of directions, which can leave scars. 

Shaving and waxing can cause or exacerbate ingrown hairs. The shaving techniques described above can be applied to prevent or decrease the occurrence of ingrown hairs.  

Sports – There are many cyclists who do their legs and lower bodies, too. A lot of body hair can cause added chafing and irritation when combined with tight cycling kits, sweat, and long ride times in the saddle. It also makes putting on compression tights, foam rolling, and massages easier and pain-free, since the hairs won’t get caught or tugged. Plus, it saves any athlete loads of grooming time. There’s no need to shave and prep their bodies before a race or competition, and it eradicates any risk of cuts and nicks from getting infected in a locker room or pool.
