If you are tired of shaving, waxing and plucking your chest hair, laser hair removal can help. You can see long-term results and feel confident about your skin.
During laser hair removal, a highly concentrated beam of light is targeted to the hair follicle. This causes the follicle to destroy itself and prevent it from growing new hairs.
1. It’s Permanent
Those who are tired of having to shave their chest hair can finally achieve smooth, sexy skin with laser hair removal. No more razor burns, ingrown hairs or patchy skin – this procedure is a permanent solution for the hair on your chest and back!
Chest hair is a nuisance and an embarrassment for many men. It makes low-cut shirts difficult to wear and can make a simple pool day a struggle. Ingrown hairs can also cause cuts, nicks or even infections.
Men can avoid these problems with a treatment from our medical spa in Phoenix, AZ. At Suddenly Slimmer Med Spa, we use the most advanced techniques in laser hair removal for men to get rid of unwanted body hair permanently.
Our laser treatments are designed to treat the upper portion of your chest, from the clavicle to the breast area, including the areola. Patients typically need a series of treatments to achieve 85% of permanent hair reduction.
Each treatment removes the hairs while they are still in the growth stage. The hairs that remain after a treatment are in the dormant or resting stage. This means that new hairs will be able to enter the growth phase when they are ready.
The number of treatments needed to achieve permanent hair reduction depends on the patient’s skin and hair color, among other factors. For best results, we recommend at least 6-8 treatments spaced weeks apart.
The treated area may be a little red or swollen immediately after treatment, but this will eventually go away on its own. It’s also important to avoid sun exposure on the treatment area for about 4-6 weeks after your last session. This can cause your skin to be sensitive and irritated, which is why we encourage you to avoid tanning beds and other forms of sun exposure for this time frame.
2. It Reduces Body Odor
If you have a lot of body hair, it tends to absorb sweat and create excessive body odor that no one wants. This is especially true for chest hair as it is a prime area for sweat and bacteria to collect.
If it is a problem for you, laser hair removal to thin your chest hair can help alleviate this issue for good. Chest hair is also notorious for causing skin irritation because it can leave razor burn, blisters, and scabs if it is not removed properly.
When you have a treatment session on your chest, the laser pushes out the hair follicles to the point where they die and cannot grow back. Depending on the type of hair, you may need several sessions to achieve the desired result.
During a laser treatment, you may notice a burning smell in the air. This is called a “laser plume” and is a natural byproduct of the laser process.
However, it has been found by researchers that the smoke and particulate matter created during a laser session can be a health hazard. The smoke contains chemicals that irritate the airways and are known to cause cancer.
Another common complaint from laser clients is that the process can leave them smelling like it burned their hair. This is not uncommon and can happen even when the process is done correctly.
However, when it is done properly by a trained professional, it is completely safe and will not leave you smelling like it was a burning fire.

3. It Reduces Irritation
Thick, coarse chest hair is a common problem for men. It can be uncomfortable, it makes wearing low-cut shirts difficult, and it can leave cuts, burns, or ingrown hairs that can be embarrassing. If you want a permanent solution to this issue, consider laser hair removal to thin your chest hair.
Laser hair removal to thin chest hair will remove the unwanted growths of your body hair by damaging the follicle and inhibiting new growth. It’s a simple procedure that involves quick pulses of light to the area that destroys the follicle without harming the skin.
While laser treatments work best on naturally darker skin, they can be effective on people with lighter or tanned skin as well. If you have a tan or sunburn, your doctor may recommend a lightening cream before treatment to reduce the risk of discomfort and blisters or scabbing.
Your doctor will also adjust the laser settings to target your skin tone and the areas you’re treating. You’ll be given protective eyewear, a cooling device and cold gel to help protect your skin from intense heat during treatment.
The process is quick and easy, but you might experience a pinching sensation similar to the snap of a rubber band while the doctor directs the pulses of light to each hair follicle. This is a minor side effect and can be easily tolerated by many patients.
The follicles that are damaged by the laser will no longer produce hairs, so they will eventually die. This process can take a few weeks and you’ll need several follow-up sessions to see the final results. It’s important to schedule follow-up appointments regularly so you can keep your chest hair under control.
4. It Reduces Sweating
Unwanted chest hair is a common issue for men and women alike. If you want a smooth, hairless chest without having to wax or shave on a regular basis, then you might consider laser hair removal.
Laser treatment works by targeting the hair follicles with light energy that isn’t absorbed by the surrounding skin. This allows the hair follicles to be destroyed and prevented from growing, which results in permanent hair loss.
Unlike other types of hair removal, laser treatments do not cause any irritation or razor burns. This is especially helpful for those who have sensitive skin, as waxing or plucking can often result in painful ingrown hairs and other irritation.
Another benefit of laser hair removal is that it helps to reduce sweating. This is especially beneficial for athletes, as it can decrease the natural body heat, decreasing the amount of resistance during exercise.
It can also reduce body odor, which can be especially irritating to those who participate in sports or work out. This is because body hair tends to absorb sweat, which can lead to the storage of potentially smelly odors in your pores.
The only downside to laser hair removal is that it can be uncomfortable for some people, but this feeling can be mitigated by shaving or waxing the area before your treatment. This will ensure that the laser energy is absorbed at the hair follicle level, and will make the procedure more comfortable.
The first treatment will thin the hair significantly, and subsequent sessions will gradually start to remove it, until it falls out completely. This process can take several months, and patients will usually need about 6 sessions to achieve complete hair removal.
5. It Makes You Look More Toned
If you want to get a clean, toned look, laser hair removal for your chest is an excellent option. It’s fast and virtually painless, and the results are more permanent than shaving or waxing.
When you have excess chest hair, it can make your body look untidy and unkempt. It can also cause a number of health issues, including ingrown hairs and skin irritation.
One of the most common reasons people seek laser hair removal is to achieve a more toned appearance. When there’s less hair, it makes the pecs and chest appear more chiseled and muscular.
The treatment is a simple in-office procedure that typically takes less than 30 minutes, depending on the size of the area. The provider passes a small hand piece over the area and delivers short spurts of laser energy that destroy unwanted hair follicles.
During the treatment, you can expect to feel some discomfort, but it’s generally mild. Some patients may request a topical numbing cream prior to their treatment.
Once the treatment session is complete, you’ll notice that some of the hair on your treated areas will start to fall out. This is a normal part of the process and usually occurs over the course of a few weeks.
To get the best results, it’s important to follow all of the instructions provided by your provider. For instance, you’ll need to avoid sun exposure and store-bought tanning lotions for six weeks before your first session.
Laser hair removal can reduce the amount of body hair you have by 10 to 20 percent after each session. You’ll need to repeat the procedure a few times to completely eliminate the hair growth. This is because hair grows in cycles.
