The Essential Guide to Male Hair Removal: How to Get Rid of Hair Like a Pro

Introduction: What Men Need to Know about Hair Removal

Hair removal helps to reduce bushiness and any itchiness that can be accentuated by sweating, especially during the hot humid Singapore weather

Hair removal is an important grooming aspect for many men in Singapore. Whether you’re looking to maintain a clean-shaven look or simply tidy up stray hairs, there are various options available to suit your needs. However, the process of hair removal can be daunting for those who have yet to explore the world of waxing, shaving and laser treatments. In this article, we discuss what men need to know about the different methods of hair removal available in Singapore.

Is it Okay for Men to Remove Hair?

Experts report that more and more men are opting for the same grooming rights as women – including smooth body skin. “Most men don’t necessarily want it all removed, but increasingly they do want it thinned out, on their back and chest, for example,” says dermatologist David Goldberg, MD, who regularly performs laser hair removal on men.  In this article, we are going to share on the various options of hair removal for men.

Of course, it’s okay for men to remove hair! In fact, it’s more than okay – it’s practically a requirement these days. Who wants to look like a woolly mammoth wandering around in modern society? Plus, think of all the advantages – no more getting your chest hair caught in your shirt buttons, no more unsightly back hair peeking out from under your collar, and no more looking like a Sasquatch in your swim trunks. So go ahead, guys – break out the razors, wax strips, or laser treatments and get to manscaping. Your significant other (and your mirror) will thank you.

“Stay sleek and smooth, and don’t let your hair slow you down!”

Why are Men Opting for Hair Removal?

Well, it’s simple really. Men are tired of looking like they’re auditioning for a remake of “Planet of the Apes.” It’s not exactly a sexy look. Plus, let’s face it – nobody wants to be the guy with the back hair that looks like a miniature forest. It’s like having your own personal ecosystem growing on your body. And don’t even get us started on the dreaded uni-brow. That’s like having a hairy caterpillar living above your eyes. So yeah, it’s no wonder why men are opting for hair removal these days. Who wouldn’t want to look and feel smoother than a freshly waxed floor?

Improved Athletic Performance

You know what they say, “less hair equals more speed!” That’s why athletes have been shaving their legs for years. It’s like taking a few pounds off your body and reducing drag – except instead of a fancy sports car, it’s your hairy legs that are holding you back. And let’s be real, who wouldn’t want to swim faster, run harder, or cycle smoother? So now, men are getting in on the action and realizing that hair removal can give them a competitive edge. Who knows, maybe one day there will be a new Olympic sport – the hairless 100m dash.

Enhanced Hygiene & Grooming Habits

Let’s be honest, nobody wants to be the guy with a forest of hair growing in their armpits or down below. It’s like having your own personal Amazon rainforest on your body – except instead of exotic animals, it’s just sweat and stench. And let’s not forget about the dreaded “dingleberries” – nobody wants to deal with those. So it’s no wonder why men are opting for hair removal these days – it’s like a natural deodorant that actually works. Plus, it’s just good hygiene. Nobody wants to be the stinky guy in the locker room.

Aesthetically Pleasing Appearance

Gone are the days when having a hairy chest was considered manly. Now it’s just considered, well, hairy. It’s like having a sweater permanently glued to your torso. And don’t even get me started on the back hair – it’s like having a hairy backpack that you can never take off. So it’s no wonder why men are opting for hair removal these days – it’s like a natural contouring system. Who needs to spend hours at the gym when you can just get rid of your body hair and instantly look more chiseled? It’s like a magic trick, but instead of pulling a rabbit out of a hat, you’re just pulling hair out of your body.

Boosts Confidence & Self-Esteem

It seems that men are finally catching up with women in the hair removal game, and the reason is not just for the sake of aesthetics, but also for boosting their confidence and self-esteem. I mean, who wouldn’t feel like a smooth, sleek dolphin after a full body wax? And let’s face it, if you can handle the pain of ripping hair out of your body, you can handle anything life throws at you. So go ahead, guys, get that hair removed and strut your stuff with newfound confidence. Just don’t forget to wear sunscreen on your newly hairless skin, unless you want to end up looking like a freshly boiled lobster.

And let's face it, if you can handle the pain of ripping hair out of your body, you can handle anything life throws at you.

Cultural & Professional Expectations

Well, it seems like cultural and professional expectations are causing men to go to great lengths to maintain their appearance. Or should I say, go to great lengths to get rid of their hair? From waxing to shaving to laser treatments, these men are willing to endure a lot of pain and discomfort just to meet society’s beauty standards. Who knew that being a hairless dolphin was the key to success in the modern world?

Avoiding Ingrown Hairs & Razor Bumps

It’s a jungle out there, and not just in the Amazon rainforest. No, I’m talking about the treacherous terrain that is a man’s body hair. With the constant threat of ingrown hairs and razor bumps lurking around every corner, it’s no wonder that men are turning to hair removal. Who needs a machete when you’ve got a razor, am I right? But seriously, these guys are waging a war against their own follicles, and the battle scars are not pretty. So let’s all take a moment to appreciate the sacrifices they make in the name of smooth skin. Salute!

See the table below for a simple breakdown of why men are increasingly opting for hair removal:

What are the stages of hair growth?

Most people need multiple laser hair removal treatments to achieve desired results. Treatment frequency depends on the individual's hair growth cycles. Typically, treatments are scheduled 4-6 weeks apart.

Hair and skin have more in common than you may think. Both skin and hair are made up of multi-layered flat cells whose rope-like filaments provide structure and strength to the hair shaft. Have you ever wondered why we find hair growing on some parts of our body and not others? this happens because human hair grows mostly everywhere on the body except for the eyelids, the lips, the palms of the hands and soles of the feet. 

There is a specific growth cycle that hair, like skin, follows in its development. this is formed of three distinct and concurrent phases: anagen, catagen, and telogen phases which occur simultaneously. despite this, each hair follicle is completely independent of each other and while one strand of hair may be in the anagen phase, another may be in the catagen phase. it is this very process that prevents our hair from falling out all at once! the length of hair is also determined by very specific characteristics unique to each phase. 

Shaving for hair removal

Almost anyone wanting to remove unwanted hair is a candidate for shaving, males and females. It can be used to remove hair from large or small areas including the moustache, beard, eyebrows, legs, arms, underarms, bikini line and pubic area. Shaving can be done with a straight razor or safety razor (called ‘manual shaving’ or ‘wet shaving’) or an electric razor (called ‘dry shaving’) or beard trimmer. 

Using an electric razor can be quick and convenient, but many guys find that it may not give the close and accurate shave that a standard razor can. Although using an electric razor is pretty easy (just turn it on and move it around your face), shaving with a standard razor has a few rules to follow. Apply a shave gel or foam lather it up and spread it all over to help hydrate hairs, improve razor glide, and help protect against irritation. Learn more here about why you need shaving cream, and the differences between shave gels and foams. 

When you use a razor to get rid of visible hair on your skin, you’re not really removing all your hair you’re just cutting it off close to where it grows. Your hair follicles continue to grow hair underneath your skin, and shaving can cause those follicles to become irritated. It’s this irritation that makes you feel itchy after you shave. 

Here are our recommended steps to take for effective public hair shaving without getting ingrown hairs:

Steps for Effective Pubic Hair Shaving without Ingrown Hairs
1. Trim hair to a manageable length using scissors or clippers.
2. Take a warm shower or bath to soften the hair and open up pores.
3. Apply a shaving cream or gel to the area.
4. Use a sharp, clean razor to shave in the direction of hair growth.
5. Rinse the razor frequently to avoid clogging.
6. Use a clean, damp washcloth to wipe away excess shaving cream or gel.
7. Apply a soothing lotion or cream to the area to reduce irritation.
8. Avoid tight clothing or sweating for a few hours after shaving.
9. Repeat the process as necessary to maintain a groomed appearance.

Note: It’s important to use caution and take your time when shaving the pubic area to avoid cuts, irritation, or infection.

Waxing for Hair Removal

Ah, the joys of waxing. Nothing says “I love pain” like voluntarily ripping hair out by the roots. But hey, at least it’s temporary, right? It’s like a rollercoaster of emotions, from the initial excitement of silky smooth skin to the terror of realizing you’re about to be in agony. And let’s not forget the post-waxing “joy” of dealing with redness, irritation, and the constant fear of ingrown hairs. But hey, it’s all worth it for those fleeting moments of hairlessness. Just don’t forget to breathe through the pain, and maybe have a shot of tequila beforehand. Cheers to hair removal, the ultimate test of our pain tolerance!

Jokes aside, waxing is an option worth considering for controlling that unibrow, ear hair, or unwanted hair on the neck, legs, arms or underarms. Hair removal around the genitals is possible, but it’s also the most painful. 

Of course, waxing is no walk in the park, and it will probably never be pain-free. If your pain threshold is remarkably low, you may want to look at the pros and cons of waxing and weigh them up against other hair removal methods. Or if you like the sound of waxing, you could prepare yourself with advice on your first wax to ensure it goes as smoothly as possible.  

Sugaring for Hair Removal

Unlike waxing, sugaring only pulls out the hairs and doesn’t disturb the surface of the skin. Hot wax attaches to the hair and the skin, pulling skin cells with it as it is removed. This is not only painful, but can cause redness, swelling, inflammation, and even bruising, says dermatologist Howard Sobel, M.D . If the wax is too hot, it can also burn your skin, especially in sensitive areas. Sugaring is a more gentle method of hair removal as the paste does not stick to your skin it only attaches to the hair. This minimises the amount of irritation to the area and pain during the process. The sugar paste is also more malleable than hard wax, which allows it to get all the way down to the root. This makes it less likely to break off hairs at the surface.

Unlike waxing, shaving, or other hair removal treatments, laser hair removal can provide a permanent reduction in hair growth over time

How does Laser Hair Removal Work?

Using laser light energy to penetrate the hair shaft, it actually kills the hair root. This doesn’t kill the follicle (the place where hair growth starts). So technically, another hair can grow in its place, but it’s difficult. That means results of laser hair removal last a fairly long time. Laser hair removal works great for the back, chest, stomach and shoulders. It’s also effective for your private parts. And, like electrolysis, laser treatments can also target specific hairs, helping to thin out certain areas. Laser hair removal seem to have the least side effects amongst the several hair removal methods. Because less pain is involved, this works well for facial hair removal too. 

How Many Hair Removal Treatments are Needed?

A man’s back or chest will need six to eight treatments spaced roughly two months (approximate 4 weeks apart) apart to see visible results. We can only say the client will get permanent hair reduction, not permanent hair removal, because what happens is one follicle dies, but there might be another one next to it that may regenerate itself. 

The laser is killing hairs in the growth stage; and the ones that are dead will shed after a few weeks. So by the time you go to your next appointment, the hairs that were in their growth stage are now in their dormant or dying stage. Overall, if you follow all the rules and get your treatments in the recommended timeframe, men can see anywhere from 50 to 85 percent permanent hair reduction.
