Laser Hair Removal for Men in NYC

The Best Laser Hair Removal for Men in NYC

Guys, you know the manscaping drill. Whether we’re talking men’s facial hair, men’s leg hair or anything in between, the grooming routine is pretty standard: Shave, wax or pluck…and repeat. It’s time to say enough to this never-ending cycle! Laser Hair Removal for men is a top permanent solution for unwanted hair. Here’s all you need to know about the best laser hair removal in NYC.

Laser Hair Removal for men has the benefit of eliminating:
  • Ingrown Hairs
  • Razor Burn
  • Cost of upkeep like razors or monthly waxing 
  • Endless skin maintenance


We all know that a laser produces a beam of light. So how exactly does light work to remove hair? When a laser pulse is directed at the treatment area, it travels underneath the skin and seeks the hair follicle. Then, the light converts to heat and the hair follicle is damaged or destroyed. As a result, hair either grows back finer or hair regrowth is stopped altogether.

Yes! Male laser hair removal is an effective solution for putting an end to hair regrowth. And men have an added advantage when it comes to lasers. Men literally have thicker skin than women. As a result, laser hair removal is generally a less painful and more comfortable treatment for the guys. And, speaking of pain, most clients refer to a pulse of a laser as like the “snap of a rubber band” on the skin.

The procedure is actually quite simple. It can take anywhere from a few minutes to an hour, depending on the treatment area. A skincare professional will apply a numbing cream on the treatment area. Then, she will pass a handheld laser device over the treatment area to target thousands of hairs at the follicle. 

Put simply, laser hair removal works anywhere there’s unwanted hair on the face or body. That said, let’s drill down on common areas for men:

Laser Hair Removal for Men’s Back / Body Hair

The back and shoulders are a common area for male laser hair removal. These areas, (along with men’s chest, men’s stomach, men’s legs and or full body hair removal) are particularly suited for laser treatment, because a laser machine has the benefit of being able to treat a large surface area. In essence, the laser machine is able to target thousands of hairs in a single session. As a result, it’s a quick and effective option for permanent hair reduction in these areas.

Laser Hair Removal for Men’s Beard / Facial Hair

Facial Laser Hair Removal is another popular treatment area for men. Options include: men’s neck, unibrow / brow, upper lip / moustache, hairline / head, check / sideburns, or full face hair removal. Most of these areas have delicate skin and are susecptible to ingrown hairs, razor cuts or nicks and skin irriation. The advantage of laser treatment is that it’s strong enough to permanently reduce coarse hair, but gentle enough to work without side effects or risks like scars or burns. 

Smooth Synergy exclusively uses the Candela Gentle Max Pro system, which is known for its safety. Its higher wavelength reduces the amount of energy dispersed into healthy surrounding tissue. As a result, it minimizes the risk of laser burns. Additionally, a longer pulse duration or pulse width assures that energy is delivered over a longer period of time. It’s simple: fewer pulses coming in contact with the epidermis translates into a safer treatment. 

Multiple sessions are needed to treat an area, because the laser works only on actively growing hair. Additionally, each session will get 80% of actively growing hair. As a result, 5-8 sessions is typically required to treat a single area. 

We like to think of Laser Hair Removal as an investment. While it definitely costs more upfront, you’ll save money in the long run with less trips to the drug store for razors or fewer waxing sessions. Plus, you can’t put a price on the time you’ll save or the confidence you’ll gain by taking advantage of this permanent solution  That said, the price of Laser Hair Removal depends on the treatment area, as well as the volume of hair on the treatment area to begin with. For example, how much Laser Hair Removal will cost for men’s back will be different than how much Laser Hair Removal will cost for men’s beard. It’s best to seek the advice of a skincare professional to determine the price of Laser Hair Removal.
