Marina Del Rey, CA (PRWEB) December 23, 2011
The staff at The Stevens Institute, a medical day spa serving all of Southern California, has noticed a rise in the number of men turning to laser hair removal in Los Angeles. This matches a trend that is taking place across the nation.
Dr. Grant Stevens, a board-certified plastic surgeon and founder of The Stevens Institute, says men want an easier, more effective way to get rid of unwanted hair than the traditional hair removal methods, such as shaving and waxing.
"I've seen an increase in the number of men coming into The Stevens Institute for laser hair removal," Dr. Stevens says. "This relatively simple procedure provides long-lasting results for guys who don't want to hassle with more tedious methods that require daily maintenance. This increase in patients corresponds with a trend across the U.S. that finds more men opting for a smoother skin appearance."
The Stevens Institute offers laser hair removal for Los Angeles women and men who want a quick treatment with proven results. Dr. Michelle A. Spring, a board-certified surgeon at The Stevens Institute, says most treatments only take 15 minutes and require no downtime.
"Laser hair removal is a great way for patients to easily achieve a smoother look," Dr. Spring says. "Women aren't the only ones taking advantage of this treatment. We're seeing more men who want to minimize the amount of time spent removing unwanted hair. And, with permanent results seen after only 4 to 6 treatments, it's no surprise that men across the nation are turning to this simple procedure."
Dr. Stevens says the increase in the number of men seeking laser hair removal corresponds with a larger movement that sees more males taking advantage of cosmetic surgery. With a wide range of surgical and nonsurgical procedures available for skin and body rejuvenation, men are discovering how they can look and feel their best.
"It's great to see that more men are learning how laser hair removal can easily create smooth skin for an enhanced appearance," Dr. Stevens says. "We're also seeing an increased number of men turning to other cosmetic treatments in Los Angeles like BOTOX®. This nonsurgical procedure helps patients lessen facial wrinkles with a single treatment to create more youthful looking skin. Regardless of the procedure, we welcome women and men to our practice and hope more men discover how they can have more healthful looking, physically enhanced versions of themselves."
