Tired of back hair? More men than ever are choosing to take it off, and they have several options in their quest. Whether it is hair on your back, chest, arms, or genital area, there are options men have for hair removal.

Laser hair removal may be one reason more men are talking to their doctors about hair removal. With laser treatment, heat from lasers are used to kill hair follicles. However, laser treatments aren't for everyone. Laser treatments work best on light-skinned, dark-haired people. Make sure you're a good candidate for this procedure before you commit to it.

Laser hair removal facilities can be found almost anywhere. When you are shopping around, keep in mind that the American Academy of Dermatology advises choosing an experienced healthcare provider. Laser treatment should be done with or under the direct supervision of a dermatologist , or a doctor with proper training and experience.

Side effects of this treatment include:

  • Blistering
  • Skin discoloration
  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Scarring.

Laser treatment may be costly, and several sessions may be needed to see results. Those who consider this treatment should avoid sunlight during the healing process following the treatment.
