Repeated shaving of the facial area can cause a lot of irritation for the skin. It’s a task, however, that men find themselves needing to repeat on the regular. In fact, the average man’s beard grows two millimeters per day, so shaving is often a daily task.

There are lots of ways, however, that taking a razor to your skin so often can cause harm and irritation. Shaving is a form of physical exfoliation that can impact the health of the skin. Shaving can cause razor bumps, ingrown hairs, razor burn, and inflammation. It can also compromise the lipid barrier of your skin, which helps to keep moisture in tissues and control the entry of external chemicals from entering the deeper layers of the skin. It is easy to compromise this lipid barrier through shaving, especially if you are in the habit of using alcohol-laden aftershaves.

With the lipid layer compromised, not only can water escape from the underlying tissues of your skin – causing skin dehydration – but chemicals from the environment can now penetrate your skin, causing further irritation and sensitive skin. Unfortunately, once the skin becomes inflamed, anything can irritate it, including the daily process of shaving. Additionally, inflamed skin can lead to premature skin aging.

How can you reduce or avoid the pain and irritation associated with shaving? With laser hair removal! Laser hair removal is the only method for permanently reducing unwanted body hair. After laser hair removal, you’ll no longer have to touch up those same spots that give you problems every day. When it comes to facial hair, laser hair removal can help in a couple of ways.

Some men opt for total beard removal. Removing all facial hair means you no longer have to spend countless hours shaving. You can eliminate the need altogether. Laser hair removal removes hairs on top of as well as under the skin. No more five o’ clock shadow – just smooth, hair-free skin. You’ll no longer have to worry about nicking your face with a sharp razor.

Other times, men just want the shape of their beard to be more defined. Reducing hair in certain areas can make your shaving routine easier. You get to decide what facial hair you want to keep and what facial hair must go.

Whether by eliminating the need for shaving completely or by getting hair in certain areas permanently reduced, you can save yourself a lot of pain with facial laser hair removal.
