Laser Hair Removal for Men
Feeling self conscious about your body is not just common in women; more and more men also feel self conscious about the way their body looks.

Here at Dezire clinic in Pune, Bangalore, Delhi, Gurgaon in India, we are committed to giving Laser hair removal for men and women of all ages.
Reasons for Laser hair removal in men:
- More and more men have started feeling conscious about excessive hair growth and are searching for hair removal solutions which are effective, painless and permanent. Laser hair removal offers them a great solution.
- Apart from appearance, many men get the hair removal or reduction due to professional careers as a model or actor as well as sportsman and athletes including swimmers, cyclists and track and field athletes.
- Some men who do not like shaving can also benefit from laser hair removal on their beard area (lower face and chin). In addition to eliminating the need to shave every day, it will also prevent irritation and the development of folliculitis, a condition often experienced by men where one or more hair follicles becomes inflamed from shaving.
- At Dezire Clinic, we operate Diode laser machines, the most trusted name in the industry.
Laser – The preferred method of hair Removal
Laser hair removal is safer and preferable to other treatments such as shaving and avoids the risk of “Shaving Bumps” and ingrown hair that come from shaving. Other treatments such as Cream Depilatories can give rise to chemical burns. Another common procedure waxing requires hair growth of some length to be effective, that really misses the point and purpose of hair removal, and is painful and may lead to significant skin irritation and inflammation.
Laser Hair Removal is the best way to treat and prevent ingrown hair. Other options include electrolysis; electrolysis works by running an electric current into each hair follicle to heat and destroy the follicle. Electrolysis is directed at one hair at a time hence it is time consuming, tedious and dependant on the therapist identifying each follicle.
At Dezire Clinic, we can treat Men of all ages.However, young people under age 18 require the presence of a parent on the first consultation or written consent from a parent. Since it is a permanent procedure, it should be carefully considered and evaluated in the context of possible future personal needs and expectations.
Laser hair removal process:
Lasers work by delivering an intense beam of light that is absorbed by the skin. This absorbed light is then converted to heat and is absorbed by the cells being targeted which get affected by the heat, while leaving the surrounding tissue unaffected. Hair in the active growth phase or Anagen phase is most affected by treatments as the hair contains optimum levels of melanin, which is directly targeted by the laser.
During laser hair removal treatment you and your Dezire Clinic Laser Therapist will both wear safety goggles to protect your eyes during the procedure. The doctor will use a small hand piece that touches your skin to deliver the laser pulse. A light spray of coolant on your skin might be felt before each laser pulse. Our laser machine has a dynamic cooling device. This cools the skin on contact, making the laser hair removal treatment more comfortable.
Is Laser Hair Removal permanent?
Laser hair removal treatment permanently removes hair follicles which are in the growth (Anagen) phase. At any time, about 85% of our hair is in the growth stage and will be removed by Laser. During this stage, the hair is most receptive to Laser because it is rich in protein, keratinized cells and melanin. The How long the hair will stay in anagen phase is decided by our genetic make-up.
Anagen phase of a hair may last for several years, thereby 85% of our hair representing Anagen or growth phase. At the end of the Anagen phase, the follicle enters the Catagen or transition phase and then the Telogen or resting phase when the hair begins to shed while the follicle is stimulated to begin a new cycle. Hair is not susceptible to Laser Hair Removal treatments during the Transition and resting phases.
The duration of these different phases of hair growth varies from person to person. It is affected by our basic genetic (DNA) make-up, age, health and gender. Different hair colour and follicle shape also affects the timings of these phases. As hair follicles enters the growth phase they become susceptible to laser treatment and can then be removed permanently, hence the need for follow up visits to treat the follicles that were not in the growth (Anagen) phase during earlier visits.
Laser treatments have been used for many years for a variety of medical and cosmetic procedures. Diode laser the most trusted name in the industry, has pioneered the development of some of the safest and most effective laser technologies and products available on the market today.
Number of Sessions required:
Number of sessions required for complete and permanent hair reduction by Laser depends upon the body area targeted. On an average 3-10 sessions are required for laser hair removal. The reason for this being laser can only attack hair follicles in growth or anagen phase. At any given time about 95% of your hair will be in anagen phase. More number of sessions are required to destroy new hair follicles in growth phase.
