Men need hair removal and skincare treatments too! At Geelong Laser and Electrolysis Clinic, men are very welcome to come along to a private and confidential clinic, where you can feel relaxed, knowing you will be offered safe and effective treatments to suit your individual needs.
Men seeking a permanent solution to shaving rash, ingrown hairs, untidy beards, eye-brows, an uneven hairline, nose and ear hair find having electrolysis treatments the only method to successfully eliminate their unwanted hair.
Whether hair is red, grey, white or blonde, and skin is darker, Electrolysis will work, unlike Laser or IPL/SHR.
Professional peels and at home cosmeceutical skincare to target oily skin, sun damage, wrinkles and uneven skin tone are offered to enhance your hair removal treatments.
Removing unwanted body hair was pretty much the domain of women, with the exceptions of bodybuilders, swimmers, and cyclists. But now men realise the value of removing or thinning areas of unwanted hair such as on the chest, back, legs and arms. Laser hair removal is one of the most popular and successful way to remove hair from large areas.
Is Laser Hair Removal Permanent for Men?
It’s easy to think that laser energy could instantly remove all of the hair in an area. But the FDA approvals for laser hair removal are for “permanent hair reduction.” There are two reasons for this:
- First, lasers only damage hair in the anagen (growth) cycle.
But hairs can also be in the catagen (transitional phase between growth and rest) or the telogen phase (rest). The catagen and telogen phases are transitioning into shedding the hair. These cycles stop nourishing the hair, shed it, and start growing a new hair shaft. That’s why lasers don’t affect hair in these phases; they’re already on their way out. Every hair on the human body is independent and works alone. Considering that the human body has around five million hairs on it (men have a few hundred thousand more than women), those are a lot of hair follicles to hope to catch in the anagen phase for effective laser removal.
- Second, damaged follicles can rebuild with hormonal changes.
Plus, if a follicle is only partially damaged, it may heal and begin to regrow hair. The bottom line, numerous studies show the degree of permanent hair reduction to be from 80 to 90 percent.
Good Candidate for Male Laser Hair Removal?
Lasers are the most effective when removing dark hair on lighter-toned skin. This is because the melanin in the hair shaft that gives the hair its darker colour attracts the laser energy. With darker skin tones, we find that the Alma Soprano SHR. is the most effective and less painful method. We can treat our clients with the optimum energy without any side effects, as the beam bypasses the epidermis and disables the reproductive cycle of the hair within the follicle.
The globally recognised Gold Standard Lightsheer Diode is also used, with clinically documented and proven results. High powered energy and unique output control enable treatment of any hair diameter and density.

Helen is so welcoming and accommodating, she made what can be an embarrassing situation very comfortable. The results have been great and whilst I appreciate the service and expertise I receive when visiting Helen, I am happy to say the results mean my visits are occurring less frequently.
My electrolysis experience with Helen has been unparalleled. Helen is highly skilled, caring, and honest – I trust her assessment of my skin and know she has my best interests, not my wallet, in mind. I walk out with minimal skin irritation (if any) and NO scars, pits, etc. I highly recommend Helen for permanent hair removal.
Geelong Laser and Electrolysis Clinic has given me a true feeling of comfort and confidence. Not only has Helen made me feel good about my hair removal decision, the environment in her clinic makes my sessions very pleasurable. I am glad I choose GLEC for my hair removal treatments.
I came to Helen about a year ago, wanting laser hair treatment on my full legs. Since my hair was darker and coarser on my lower leg, it worked wonderfully. The upper leg was a little more difficult to treat since the hair is lighter there. Although there was success, especially with ingrown hairs on the backs of my thighs and darker hairs near my bikini line I followed up the laser treatment with some electrolysis and I have had wonderful results.

As a 45 year old male, I had ear and nose hair that I was tired of plucking. Fortunately, I found Helen. She explained that due to the thickness of my hairs, it would probably take about a year of treatments (once a fortnight initially, then monthly). A year later, the hair has stopped. I was really impressed with Helen’s professionalism, she would explain what she was doing and why she was doing it, which was very important to me. What separates Helen from her competition is that she truly knows how her customers feel about unwanted hair and she enjoys helping them get rid of it and seeing the results.

I am a 25-year-old male with a mono brow. I have tweezed it for years and wanted to get rid of it. After finally plucking up the courage to do something about it, I am well on the way to losing the dreaded mono.
