While some amount of facial and body hair is preferable in maintaining a masculine image, too much hair can be undesirable, both aesthetically and functionally. Overgrowth on the back, arms, or chest can cause embarrassment and discomfort. Overly thick eyebrows, ear or neck hair may also be unsightly. And as most male clients who suffer from excess hair are well aware, shaving, waxing and tweezing can become unduly tedious, offering only temporary relief. Even electrolysis, once considered a pioneering hair removal procedure, can be painful and require a lengthy downtime.
At Lasky, we find that our male patients enjoy the most satisfaction and best results with laser hair removal for men. This subtle, advanced technology can thin or even completely remove unwanted hair from any area of the body, all while ensuring maximum client comfort and permanent outcomes. With rapid precision, targeted hair follicles are penetrated by nuanced energy micropulses, while the surrounding skin remains undamaged and intact. At long last, you can feel confident going to the beach, taking your shirt off on a hot day, or snuggling up to a significant other who will be delighted with your smooth, silky skin.

Not only is the Pronto the fastest laser on the market, it is also the most comfortable, employing a cutting edge system of simultaneous cooling that keeps skin temperature in check.
When you first enter our cozy yet sophisticated offices, you will immediately sense the warmth and friendliness of our staff. After a quick tour of our state-of-the-art facilities and advanced, groundbreaking equipment, your board certified physician will examine you, review medical records and make the best recommendations for moving forward with a customized treatment plan for your needs.
The consultation is a wonderful time to ask questions, discuss concerns, and review our fantastic library of before and after photographs, which will give you a better idea of the kind of outstanding results you can expect at Lasky Aesthetics. Your doctor will also explain the action plans for before your treatment and afterwards. Sun exposure is especially discouraged, as this can have a detrimental effect on your hair removal results.
Most Lasky clients find that they do not require anesthesia. However, numbing agents are available should the need for greater comfort arise. Before administering the laser treatment, your technician will cut the hair down to mere millimeters, ensuring the most accurate and efficient approach is achieved. After the laser settings are fine-tuned to the patient’s individual parameters, the eyes are covered with protective gear and the skin receives a layer of soothing gel. Finally, the lasers emit their potent energy, clearing the unwanted hairs from the body within a matter of minutes.
Discomfort after the treatment tends to be minor; however, you may benefit from applying an ice pack, cold compress or healing serums to the skin’s surface. Any redness or tingling is on par with a mild sunburn and will subside within a matter of hours. Patients can return to normal activities and work duties right away. Once again, sun exposure is to be rigorously avoided while the skin recovers.

Depending on the amount of hair to be removed, laser treatments may need to be repeated several times. Generally permanent hair reduction or elimination can be achieved within 4 sessions, with touch up appointments scheduled once a year.
