Men’s Back Hair Removal?

Did you know one of the most popular areas for male hair removal is back hair? Many people seem to prefer a smoothed appearance without hair. But when you think about back hair, some men have it, and some don’t. Why is that?

The leading cause of back hair is often a mixture of genetics and hormones. Specific genes can make men more sensitive towards testosterone. Male hormones like testosterone encourage and stimulate hair growth. As a result, this can make back hair thicker and more noticeable. 

Solutions for Back Hair Removal

Short-term solution?

The most common solution is shaving.

The problem with a short-term solution is that you will see hair regrowth the next day. It is also a problematic area to shave by yourself. If you have sensitive skin, shaving may also cause a shaving rash.

Another popular method for back hair removal is waxing. For maintenance, you need to wax every 4-6 weeks. The issue with waxing is that you need to grow hair to be able to wax, and some people don’t like the regrowth stage.

Long-term solution?

If you have dark hair, the long-term solution is Laser Hair Removal.

The back is a large area, so it usually costs more than other areas and will need a course of treatment, but it can help to achieve good hair reduction and smooth, soft skin in the long term. Also, if you are suffering from ingrown hair or folliculitis due to shaving or waxing, laser hair removal might be a good option.

The important thing you should remember is that laser hair removal treats the symptom of hair growth but can’t treat hormone balance. Hormonal issues often cause back hair. The exact number of laser treatments varies by individual; you will require occasional maintenance sessions after a course of treatment.
