Laser Hair Removal is a Manly Thing to Do

Historically, there has been a virtual line in the sand between men and cosmetic treatments. Procedures like facelifts, liposuction, and just about everything else that the average woman was able to obtain were off-limits to men; not a “manly” thing to do. Fortunately, our perception of male grooming and what that can entail has changed dramatically over time.

Laser Hair Removal for Men

Since the onset of injectable solutions several years ago, we have witnessed an ongoing increase in the number of men obtaining cosmetic treatments. One of the procedures we cannot overlook is laser hair removal.

The fact that hairiness is a typical male trait does not mean all men appreciate this aspect of their biology. Truth be told, the women in their lives may not appreciate it all that much either. Laser hair removal allows a man more freedom in his grooming. It also allows him to feel much more comfortable in his own skin.

How Laser Hair Removal Works

The usual male grooming technique is to shave away unwanted hair. A few brave souls may undergo waxing on certain parts of the body. Each of these methods of hair removal is efficient, but not ideal. Shaving is something a man may have to do daily to maintain smooth skin; and, at that, he may still struggle with razor bumps. Waxing may lengthen the time in between grooming sessions, but not by much. A man may have to wax every few weeks. This is not only expensive but also uncomfortable. This is why laser hair removal makes sense for men.

Laser Hair Removal vs Shaving or Waxing

Laser hair removal differs from shaving and waxing because it neither cuts hair nor pulls it from the follicle, it vaporizes it. More than that, each laser hair removal session disables part of the hair follicle. This happens through the absorption of laser light. When specific wavelengths are directed toward the skin, light hits strands of hair and gets transferred as heat. This thermal energy immediately travels down the hair shaft into the follicle, where heat penetrates the tissue, causing controlled damage. Instantly, the hair that was at the surface disappears.

Results of Male Laser Hair Removal

To achieve the long-term results of up to 95% hair reduction, between 6 and ten laser hair removal sessions are usually necessary. Stopping after one or a few sessions will halt the progress of disabling hair follicles, and hair growth will continue as usual. The full course of treatment is scheduled in intervals that target each new active phase of hair growth. This is how we achieve permanent hair reduction.

Lip Fillers are an Easy Fix for the Signs of Aging

Throughout history, we can find substantial evidence of our love for full, luscious lips. For those who were not born with this trait, which many of us weren’t, there has historically been very little hope of changing things. The invention of dermal fillers has created a world of possibility, though. In our Denver office and across the country, according to statistics, one of the most common uses of dermal fillers is to enhance the lips. Here, we discuss what you have to gain by treating your lips to a refresher.

Benefits of Dermal Fillers for Lip Enhancement

We have plenty of evidence that dermal fillers can fill out the lips. In some of the most recognizable instances, the over-done appearance that is achieved with injectable enhancement is actually a detractor. You may have considered lip augmentation but have not moved forward because you can’t envision those overfilled Kylie Jenner lips on your face. This is not a concern that needs to stop you from feeling great about how you look.

One of the benefits of getting lip enhancement at Fante Eye & Face Center is that our goal is to achieve natural-looking results. In many cases, first-time lip injections are ultra-conservative. There is no need to attempt maximum fullness in the first visit; dermal fillers are buildable. By taking augmentation in stages, you give yourself time to acclimate to your new appearance and further accentuate your lips as you see fit.

How Do Dermal Fillers Work For Lips?

The filler products that are used for lip enhancement contain hyaluronic acid. The action of hyaluronic acid in the body is what creates the appearance of fullness. The substance draws in water molecules from the body, plumping tissue over time. Because the body produces hyaluronic acid and because this substance does nothing more than draw in water, there is no risk of severe adverse side effects. The body will accept the hyaluronic acid we inject and will metabolize it naturally.
