Even though summer is almost over, now is the time to start thinking about getting rid of back hair you don’t like. And we’re not talking about getting a few more waxings or making sure your razor is sharp. We’re talking about a permanent way to get rid of annoying body hair.
Here, our team of experts at the Bergen County Hair Removal in Bergen County, NJ, tells you how long it takes for our advanced laser hair removal system to get rid of back hair for good.
How come my back is so hairy?
Most of the time, a man’s hairy back is due to his genes. Some genes can make men more sensitive to testosterone, the male hormone that makes hair grow on the body. If you have this trait, your back hair may be thicker and stand out more.
Back hair is usually more of a problem for men than for women, but that doesn’t mean that women can’t have it too. Most of the time, hairy backs in women are caused by hormonal problems like polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS), problems with the adrenal glands, or Cushing’s syndrome.
A disorder called hypertrichosis, on the other hand, can affect both men and women and cause hair to grow too much all over the body.
Why use a laser to get rid of hair?
Even though creams, razors, and wax have worked in the past, you’re still stuck in a never-ending battle with unwanted hair, even if you’re happy with the way you do it now. That’s because none of those methods really get to the bottom of why hair keeps growing back.
Laser hair removal does
What happened? Most of the time, hair that grows back is finer and thinner than before, and it usually doesn’t grow back at all.
How many times do you have to treat it?
How much time does it take to get there? All of that depends on how much hair you have and where on your body you want to get rid of it.
When it comes to your back, you should expect to need about 6–8 treatments to see the best results. Most of the time, we schedule these meetings every six weeks.
What should I hope for?
You’ll need about 30 minutes for a single treatment to get rid of hair on your back. Don’t worry about pain if you are. Your tech will put a soothing cream or aloe on you to make sure you are completely comfortable.
After your treatment is done, you can go right back to what you were doing before. Aside from a few mild side effects, like a mild sunburn, you won’t feel any pain afterward.
We do suggest that you stay away from saunas, hot tubs, excessive sweating, and heat for a few days while your sensitive skin heals.
