Default Hair removal on neck?

Hi, Im a 25 year old male and Im looking to get my neck hair lasered off. The hair on my neck grows in funny directions which means I have to shave against the grain to catch it. This results in razor burn and ingrown hairs and it really does my head in.

Been well informed that IPL is no good and that I should be using something called the light sheer diode laser????

Any guys on here had there necks done and if so how did you get on??

just go to a place that will guarantee their work, and not worry about the equipment they use.

Chris, are you serious? One must absolutely be concerned about the type of equipment that is used. What good is a guarantee if there are no results. Lasers types used vary by skin color/tone and hair density/coarseness. Failure to use the appropriate laser and settings for one's skin type may result in serious damage (burning,scarring,etc.).

Benwolves, you must complete due diligence here. Go to hairtell forum and present your question there. You will get good advice from experts in this field.

Default Laser

I am a LHR technician and owner. The only laser specifically "built" for hair removal is an alexandrite 755nm laser. All other wavelengths can "catch" pigment, but they are more forgiving of pigment and that is why dark skinned people can get results. Using IPL's and multipurpose lasers on fair to light brown skinned people is ineffective as you need to use more energy that often times subjects cannot tolerate it even with numbing cream. So, practitioners under treat in order to keep the business. These machines do have terrific applications in the medical field such as tattoo removal, skin resurfacing and more, making this the economical choice for multi service offices to purchase. Many companies make lasers using the 755nm wavelength. I preferred the Candela GentleLase when shopping around and doing my home work. That being said, this laser can only accommodate fair to light brown skinned people with pigmented hair. It has very few other applications as this is a laser that seeks pigment and perhaps not an economical choice for multi service practitioners. Your treatment area needs to be unexposed to the sun past and present and you cannot be on any light sensitive meds. The next acceptable laser is the Nd:YAG at 1064nm wavelength. This accommodates dark skinned clients as it is forgiving of pigment so it can bypass the dark skin and focus on the dark follicle. Results vary with this laser based on the darkness of the skin and hair. Same safety parameters apply as far as sun and medicine.

I had electrolysis hair removal on my neck and face and found that as effect as laser.

I went a highly reputable office in Charlotte and am very pleased with their work.

The desire to remove excess or dark hair usually begins in adolescence and seems to continue until the day we die. Whether it is hair on the face, armpits, legs, bikini line, or other body parts, many women AND men are intent upon having the hair on their scalp be the only visible hair on their bodies. With the emphasis on smooth, hairless skin, it is interesting to note that excess hair, especially in women, is still a taboo subject.

IPL works good if you have a dark hair. You can try it if you are sensitive to the painful laser. Depending on the machine, you can get painless light therapy for one tenth of the laser price. Goodluck anyway.

Shaving. This technique simply cuts the hair off at the skin surface. Effective only for small term purpose since hair may start to grow back within 1 to 3 days. It is very best performed with the use of some kind of skin lotions to the skin to aid the razor in sliding over the skin, avoiding cuts. Common skin lotions contain water, shaving cream, hair refresher, or body wash.
