Many men refer to male hair removal as manscaping, but we prefer to simply call it “grooming”. Previously a taboo subject, male hair removal has completely revolutionised the way men take care of themselves, and has most certainly improved their quality of life. With Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) hair removal, men are afforded the opportunity to save time, save money and save a little embarrassment. Let’s not forget about the partner in your life either - after all, back hair is not the greatest pick-up line in the world!
The problem with conventional temporary methods of hair removal, such as waxing or shaving, lies in their horrible side effects such as razor burn, body stubble and ingrown hairs. IPL, a more modern light-based treatment than laser, provides a safe, gentle and long-lasting solution to winning the battle of the beard.
IPL can successfully remove unwanted hair from almost any part of the body after an average of6-8 treatments, with proven long-term results.Popular areas for men include backs, shoulders, chest, stomach, neck, buttocks, ears, eyebrows and nose hair, followed by beard, arms, legs, toes and the pubic area. With IPL, Men can decide how much hair they want to remove, so you can go for the clean, hair-free look in some body areas e.g. shoulders, whilst simply taming or thining out hair in others e.g chest, cutting down on maintenance and concerns about appearance.
For men that stuggle with the daily maintanance of dense, coarse facial hair, a few IPL treatments will reduce hair growth, leaving the hair finer and growing more slowly, making it easier to manage your beard. You can also shape your beard eliminating any outlying hair growth on the neck or stray facial hairs.
IPL works by sending out controlled pulses of light, which target the hair follicles in the area being treated. The light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, which causes the hair follicle to heat up, and ultimately destroys the follicle. Because the treatment is only effective in specific stages of the hair growth process, you’ll need a series of visits at set intervals to ensure you get the maximum benefit.
The IPL process is relatively quick and virtually painless and requires no recovery time()Unlike laser and IPL treatments of the past, Legs eleven’s advanced IPL technology is suitable and safe for all skin types and more affordable. IPL also has the added benefits of healing and preventing in-grown hairs and helping improve acne, skin tone and texture. Being overtly hairy can put a damper on the exposé of summer, and it’s stripped down exterior. Being hair-free and care-free is an instant way to gain that extra bit of confidence for a trip to the beach, or even a workout at the gym. Besides its aesthetic merits, many men are turning to IPL for its exceptionally hygienic virtues, which results in a cleaner, neater and safer treatment. The modern South African man should regard IPL as his first choice for the removal of unwanted body hair, especially given all its benefits.
