It can often be difficult to find information on laser hair removal on the male beard. This is an increasingly popular area to have treated for a variety of reasons. At Complete Lasercare we have sixteen years experience of successful laser hair removal treatments on the male beard. We have treated clients suffering from ingrown hairs, follicultis, those who no longer wish to shave and also those who are transgender.
Laser hair removal can be extremely effective to remove male beard hair, but can take quite a few treatments. We would normally advise a minimum of six treatments, but it may take more. The number of treatments required varies from person to person. It is important to note that regrowth may be patchy in between treatments. The hair would usually become sparser, finer and slower growing as the course of treatment progresses. Quite often we find the upper lip and chin area may have more resistant hair growth and take more treatments than the cheeks or neck.
Results on the male beard area tend to be very good, due to the coarse nature of the hair. The thicker and darker hairs are, the more melanin that is present and the more easily the hair follicle can be effectively targeted by the laser.
