Ditch the Neck Hair: Laser Hair Removal for Men
Guys, shaving is probably already part of your normal routine, but what if it wasn’t? Laser hair removal for men, also sometimes referred to as “manscaping”, is a growing trend that removes unwanted body hair for a more permanent solution.
We’re not saying you should eliminate that full beard or mustache, but what about pesky neck hairs (that you should trim anyway)? If you have sensitive skin and the ability to grow a strong 5’oclock shadow by lunch time, daily shaving can be a painful hassle.
Our patient (above) experienced razor burn and painful ingrown hairs after shaving his neck. After several laser hair removal treatments, he had an incredible hair reduction and no longer suffers from ingrown hairs (“folliculitis”) or razor burn. He is a couple of touch up treatments away from being neck hair free.
“We all have areas of hair that we just don’t want to bother with,” said board-certified plastic surgeon John Renucci. “Whether it’s the ears, back of the neck, or back, it can just be a pain. Laser hair removal removes that hassle of shaving and is less expensive long term than waxing or tweezing.
