Men can say goodbye to unwanted hair with waxing, laser hair removal


Are you a man battling excess back hair?

Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center can be your solution.

These days, back waxing for the opposite sex is extremely common. The treatment removes the entire hair follicle from the root.

“There are several men that come in to get their back waxed around the time of their vacations,” said Kathe Malinowski, lead esthetician and marketing manager for Eterna MedSpa & Laser Vein Center.

In need of some eyebrow manscaping? A waxing session at Eterna can help with that, too.

Like women, men can avoid the discomfort often associated with waxing by instead opting for laser hair removal.

The procedure is fast growing in popularity among males who are looking to get rid of the unwanted hair on their backs, necks and chests.

“Some men request their abdomen also,” Malinowski said.

How does laser hair removal work? A laser targets hair follicles and heats them with infrared energy. The laser plate is place in the area treated and the laser beam looks for the dark follicle. The laser hits the follicle, if the follicle is in the Antigen stage of hair growth the hair follicle will die and not grow back.

Hair growth takes place in cycles of growth and resting phases. And because only actively growing hair can be removed at each treatment session, several sessions will be necessary.

“Usually the men that come in for this are the guys that have very thick follicles and lots of it,” Malinowski said. “It usually takes more than the usual eight to 10 treatments especially if they have lots of thick follicles.”
