Back Hair Removal is a common request from men in our Image by Laser clinics. Back hair tends to appear when men are in their 20’s to 40’s and may worsen over time. Hormones and genetics are the usual reason that men have hair on their backs and apart from removing it; there is not a lot that can be done to prevent it.
Common methods to remove back hair include waxing or shaving. Laser back hair removal is a better long term option and means no ingrown hairs, shaving rash or irritation which are common side effects of shaving or waxing.
Removing Black Hairs – The Laser Method
Back hair removal with laser is quite a simple process. The back is marked up around where the hair growth is and then the hair is shaved down with a disposable razor. This is so the laser targets the hair under the skin (in the hair follicle) and not on the surface of the skin.
Back hair removal with laser can take from 20 – to 60 minutes depending on the size of the area. We are always careful to blend the area we remove with the top of the shoulders where it meets the chest, and we can also do the upper arms or the back of the neck.
Other Areas for Men’s Laser Hair Removal
Other popular areas for laser hair removal for men include the chest and stomach, arms, legs, outer ears and tidying the beard line on cheeks or front of throat.
The cost of laser back hair removal depends how much hair growth there is. For example some guys have a patch of hair on the lower back or shoulders, while others need the full back area treated.
