As men get older, the hairs atop their heads thin out while patches of fuzz-pop up in less desirable locations, such as the shoulders and back. If it’s any consolation, scientists say that back hair is a sign of high testosterone. Manliness aside, each guy has a different preference for how to groom the area or to not groom it at all.
At Spektrum laser spa we treat everyone regardless of their gender and their skin color. Laser hair removal is a procedure that works on all skin types, skin colors, and hair colors, provided that the right technology is used. All areas of the body can also be treated, and that also includes full back laser hair removal.
Full back Laser treatment is best for one kind of customer: the dark-haired, light-skinned agent who doesn’t mind suffering for his smoothness. A beam destroys hair roots over several sessions, giving results that can last for years. Lasers don’t just hit hard at your follicles, though: A single session can cost a couple of hundred bucks, so it will also get you in the wallet.
Why remove hair on your back?
There may be plenty of reasons why you decide to remove hair on your back. Although most hair removal patients wishing to treat their back are men, some female customers also do give it a go.
Some women will naturally have more or less hair on their back. While some will not be bothered, others will be. Very often than not, female patients decide to remove body hair on their back, shoulders, or waistline for aesthetic purposes. Hair removal is a growing trend amongst male demographics.
Transgender people going through the transition may also wish to remove unwanted hair, on their back as well as other areas of their body. Hair removal is an annoying yet essential aspect of transitioning from male to female. In any case, removing one’s back hair is very tricky and is safer when done by a professional.
How to Remove Back Hair Permanently
If you’re looking for a permanent solution, it’s time to consider laser hair removal treatment. Laser hair removal is quick and relatively painless. It also requires multiple treatments, but you’ll only spend a few minutes at a time under the laser.
Not only is laser hair removal very safe but it is also rather affordable. Yes, the side effects are minimal and the contraindications are very few. The cost is also something to keep in mind. The cost of laser hair removal for the next fifty years is the cost of one year of waxing.
Laser hair removal will also help you remove your hair close to permanently. The treatment reduces hair growth by up to 95%. The few hairs that may grow back will be thin and light, thus barely noticeable.
How does Laser Hair removal work?
A laser emits pulses of light onto the skin that destroy your hair follicles and prevent hair from growing back. Hair grows in three different phases, and the laser is only effective when the hair is in the growth stage.
In order to capture and destroy every hair, multiple treatments are required, as not all hairs are in the same growth phase at the same time. Some people require as few as four treatment sessions, each of which lasts only a few minutes at a time. Unlike electrolysis, which targets each hair one at a time, laser hair treatment targets multiple hairs with each pulse of the laser.
Back laser hair removal only works when the hair is in the anagen phase of growth. Indeed, it is the only time the hair and follicle connect, allowing the energy to travel from the former to the latter. Unfortunately, only 20% of all hair is in the correct phase of growth. Thus, a laser session can only treat up to 20%. This explains why a laser treatment always includes several sessions, six weeks apart.
What to Expect After Full back Laser Hair Removal Treatment
It is common for many people to see red or swollen skin immediately following a session. This is normal, and these minor side effects can usually be relieved simply by using moisturizer or lotion with aloe.
After treatment, you’ll also need to avoid exposure to the sun. Only when your sessions are complete will it be safe to expose your skin to the sun.
You’ll also need to wear loose clothing and avoid activity that makes you sweat, such as working out or spending time in a hot tub or steam room. Keep in mind that, depending on your skin type and hair type, you may not see 100% permanent results. Some people need to have follow-up treatments after several months or several years.
