From removing unwanted hair to minimizing fine lines and wrinkles, laser treatments are one of the go-to minimally invasive cosmetic procedures for men.

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) reports that there were more than 1.3 million cosmetic procedures performed on men in 2018. Aside from Brotox, Botox® — and soft tissue fillers, laser treatments were among the most popular minimally invasive procedures. The ASPS’ 2018 Plastic Surgery Statistics Report found that there were about 185,000 laser hair removal procedures performed on men last year.

Part of the popularity can undoubtedly be attributed to a wide range of aesthetic concerns lasers can treat and the ease at which they relieve them. While laser treatments can range from relatively superficial to invasive, the most common cosmetic concerns (hyper-pigmentation, unwanted hair, skin tightening, etc.) can often be addressed with little to no downtime.

Popular Laser Treatments for Men:

  1. Laser Therapy for Facial Redness and Broken Blood VesselsIn the case of patients dealing with redness on the face because of skin conditions like rosacea and telangiectasia or broken blood vessels and spider veins, vascular lasers can improve the tone and texture of the complexion.

     

  2. Laser Hair Removal“Laser treatments are tailored to an individual’s skin type. With hair removal, men may have thicker, coarser hair that requires slightly different treatment parameters and, possibly, a greater number of treatments.”

    Just as male and female hair follicles are different, so too are the areas of the body they most often treat.

    Considering a patient’s skin tone is also important. For laser hair removal, the wavelength is usually longer, and the pulse duration of the laser pulse is longer for darker skin tones to minimize the risk of post-inflammatory hyper-pigmentation.

     

  3. Photo-facials for Sun Damage and Age SpotsWhether it is sunspots, age spots, liver spots, or any of the other forms of hyper-pigmentation that both men and women experience with age, laser treatments can even skin tone and texture and restore a more youthful appearance.

    Many sunspots can be effectively removed with a single session — provided the patient uses strict sun protection for at least a month after treatment.

    After a treatment spots on the face will often look darker for approximately 14 days before flaking off to reveal clearer skin.

The Takeaway…

Given the scope of cosmetic concerns laser therapy can treat, it should come as no surprise that multiple devices can be used together to achieve the best results.

Regardless of what you are looking to address, consulting a professional doctor supervised aesthetic clinic will ensure you receive the best course of laser treatment for you.
