Frequently Asked Questions
Does Laser Hair Removal Affect Male Fertility?
Rumors and speculations concerning how using laser hair removal on the male genitals may affect fertility have spread. However, these are generally unfounded and there is little risk to fertility when treating the genitals. The rumors often stem from the noted decrease in sperm count following laser hair removal treatment.
This decrease in sperm count is slight and likely due to the heat of the laser. Similar decreases can be observed after using a hot tub or sauna. Long term effects on fertility are pretty much unheard of.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Sessions Are Needed For A Man?
The number of laser hair removal sessions needed for a man depends on several factors including the treated areas, hair thickness, hair type, amount of hair, goals for treatment, hair color, and skin tone. On average, men need anywhere between four and ten sessions to see their desired results. Men with thicker hair, hair on the lighter side of colors that can be treated, or treating larger areas may all increase the number of sessions needed.
Does Laser Hair Removal Last Forever?
The FDA considers laser hair removal a permanent way to reduce hair. However, future touch-ups may be required to maintain total hair loss. Though, they do reduce the overall need to shave and cause any hair that comes back to come back much thinner. Therefore, for those hoping to simply thin out their hair or who just want to make their routine quicker and less of a hassle, laser hair removal is a great option.
Can It Help With Ingrown Hairs?
Yes, this is one of the common motivations for men seeking laser hair removal. If you frequently get ingrown hairs from shaving, laser hair removal may help reduce the number of ingrown hairs you see.
