Survey of Men Grooming Habits- how popular is laser hair removal?

Laser Hair Removal – how popular is it?

A recent survey in March 2013 was carried out by a laser manufacturer/distributor, and looked at the grooming habits of men across the UK. The result was rather surprising!

More than 80% of men who removed body hair using various methods such as shaving and waxing, said they were not embarrassed by it. Yet only 0.4% had tried laser or IPL hair removal.  Even more surprising, only 2.9% of women who regularly remove hair had tried laser or IPL hair removal. 

Are you surprised by this low percentage?

At the Canterbury Skin and Laser Clinic, Kent, laser hair removal is one of the most popular treatments we provide. We have clients from all areas of Kent including Canterbury, Ashford, Faversham, Dover, Margate, Broadstairs, Deal, Folkestone and further afield. We do treat more women than men but we have a significant number of men who have laser hair removal for their backs or necks, the latter is great for helping to reduce shaving rash.

The survey also found that one third of men who have not tried laser hair removal yet, would consider it.

Laser Hair Removal works best on dark, course hair on a light skin background. In our Kent clinic we use the gold standard Alexandrite laser. One treatment will often give you appreciable improvement but generally a course of 4-6 is recommended over 12 months.
