A Guide to Men’s Laser Hair Removal
Although it is commonly considered that women are the ones that desire a permanent solution to hair removal. Men are now discovering the benefits of laser removal as well. Other forms of removing that unwanted fuzz, although effective, can feel time-consuming and the results are often short-lived. You may also be someone who suffers from pseudofolliculitis or razor bumps that are often difficult to treat. Leaving you feeling frustrated and uncomfortable. A solution for all of this is our men’s laser hair removal treatment. At Cambridge Micropigmentation Centre, we will have you fuzz-free and smooth in a matter of weeks so you can finally ditch that razor or wax for good.

The Treatment

So, how does the treatment work? At our clinic, we use Xlase Plus Diode which is the worlds most advanced light treatment. The diode technology will release pulses of light energy into the skin, which will target the follicle and root. The innovative technology will destroy only the root and follicle, resulting in a permanent or significant reduction in growth. Multiple sessions are necessary to target the regrowth stage. Your body will have hair growing at all different stages of the growth cycle. This will enable us to treat every single one.

Our laser hair removal can treat many areas of the body, including:
  • Back
  • Shoulders
  • Chin
  • Neck
  • Facial
  • Chest
  • Groin
And much more…

We can target sizeable areas of the body quickly, so if you choose to remove everything on your legs, it will be a pretty simple process.
Our laser hair removal treatment is suitable for all skin types (Fitzpatrick Skin Types I-VI) and can even be used on tanned skin. We can set the machine on lower pulse lengths and frequencies to prevent any epidermis damage for darker skin types and people with a tan.

What To Expect

For most who receive our men’s laser hair removal, the experience is not painful, but they do describe some discomfort. The sensation is usually of an elastic band flicking against the skin repeatedly, accompanied by a feeling of warmth. The Xlase machine is fitted with a cooling device that reduces the uncomfortable sensation. Everyone feels things differently. However, our feedback has informed us that in particularly sensitive areas, cooling has made a significant difference to the overall experience for our clients.


Depending on the individual, you may only require 3 sessions and others may need more. The laser is proven to deliver permanent results and is safe to use on all skin types and strand tones. For the best results, we recommend at least 3-5 sessions on the targeted area. The Xlase offers the shortest treatment time out there, so when you are looking for the “gold-standard” of this type of treatment, you can trust us to deliver. Over time, you may need a few top-up treatments for anything that was not targeted effectively. There is no recovery time, but our team will provide advice on how to take care of the treated areas.
