Silk’n Guide to Smooth & Sexy Chest & Back Hair Removal
For many men, hair removal habits start and finish with a morning shave, and that suits them just fine. However, a recent survey of over 300 women revealed some very interesting statistics when it comes to what they like to see when it comes to hair grooming on men.
The study revealed that 60% of women prefer only a ‘moderate’ amount of chest hair, and 34% actually favor a hair-free chest. Only 6% of respondents indicated they preferred a heavy amount of chest hair. With a whopping 94% of respondents indicating that a lot of chest hair is not their cup of tea, there’s undoubtedly going to be a lot of men out there who are going to want to invest a little extra time in grooming below the neck.
Goals for Back and Chest Hair Removal
How much grooming you do on your back and chest is entirely up to you, but it is helpful to know what some common approaches and goals are so you have a good place to start before you begin. To kick things off, let’s start with the chest.
There are many men who simply want to go for a completely hair-free chest, and there’s a relatively simple approach to use to achieve that goal; treat the whole thing! For men who still want to maintain at least some chest hair coverage to better suit their personal style or the preference of their partner, a different approach will be needed.
In general, there’s a balance of three things that you should go for when figuring out what you want out of your chest hair grooming. First is the distribution of the hair over the chest and abdomen, second is the symmetry of the hair growth, and third is the length of the hair. To give you a rule of thumb to work with for most cases when you don’t want to go completely hair-free, you’re going to aim for a moderate amount of hair distribution that looks symmetrical on both sides, and is relatively short in length.
When considering these three criteria, most people will encounter a situation that looks similar to these examples:
- If your chest hair is only covering a moderate area, and it looks pretty symmetrical, you may only need to give it the occasional trim with an electric shaver (use one with adjustable trim heights) to give you the look you want.
- If you’ve got a relatively short length of hair that covers a moderate amount of your chest, but it’s got inconsistencies in where it grows on the left and right side, you’re probably going to want to treat the excess areas using a permanent hair removal method for a better look that lasts.
- If your chest hair is a good length and is mostly symmetrical, but it covers way more of your torso than you’d like, you’re probably going to want consider a more extensive hair removal approach that will deliver permanent results.
Everyone will have slightly different goals when it comes to the look they aim for, so just use these examples as a guide and tweak them to suit your own preference.
When it comes to back hair, the goals are usually much more consistent for most men; they just want it all gone, and for it to stay gone. To this end, a permanent hair removal method offers the most ideal solution.
Problems with Traditional Methods of Back and Chest Hair Removal
Once you’ve got an idea of what you want from back and chest hair removal, it’s time to consider your options to achieve that goal. While it may be tempting to simply opt for the familiar method of shaving the areas, most people quickly become frustrated by fast regrowth of stubble. Not only does this require frequent touch-ups to maintain the desired look, it can become itchy and uncomfortable as it grows back.
Waxing, sugaring, and epilators offer longer-lasting results when compared to shaving, but come with the unfortunate side effect of being rather painful due to the hair being ripped out all at once. If you’ve seen the famous scene of Steve Carell getting waxed in the movie ‘The 40-Year-Old Virgin”, then you know what we’re talking about. Interesting fact about that scene – It wasn’t acting! They actually waxed the very-hairy Carell and filmed his real reactions!
In addition to the initial discomfort of these methods, they also come with the disadvantage of longer intervals between treatments in order for there to be enough hair growth for the wax, sugar, or epilator to grip properly. This means that you’re inevitably have some visible regrowth while you wait for the right time for your next treatment.
Moving down the list of hair removal methods, we come to laser and intense pulsed light (IPL) hair removal. Laser hair removal, while able to deliver permanent results, is limited in terms of the types of skin and hair tones that it is able to treat effectively. Laser treatments are also quite costly and require appointments at professional clinics, which can definitely make things inconvenient for those of us with very busy schedules.
IPL hair removal, on the other hand, is a permanent solution that offers many advantages over lasers such as the ability to perform the treatments by yourself in the comfort of your own home, at any time that is convenient for you. In addition, IPL devices use a broader spectrum of light when compared to lasers, which means that IPL devices are much more effective at treating a wider variety of skin and hair tone combinations.
Advantages of Intense Pulsed Light for Back and Chest Hair Removal
The specific benefits that IPL devices offer for back and chest hair removal make it the clear choice for people looking for an easy-to-use solution that delivers permanent results with no pain, discomfort or irritation.
IPL devices allow you treat specific areas of your body with great precision, allowing you to sculpt your hair growth to achieve the exact look you want. If you want it all gone, you can do that. If you want to create lighter coverage on your body while still maintaining growth in certain areas, you can do that too.
If you’re unsure of just how much you want to remove, IPL devices make it easy to progress in stages until you get the look you like the most. Start out with treating outlying areas and gradually treat more and more space until you’ve achieved the hair coverage level that makes you look your best.
Get Amazing Hair Removal Results with the Silk’n Infinity
In the world of IPL hair removal devices, the Silk’n Infinity is leading the way. This advanced hair removal device combines IPL with galvanic energy to produce better results, in less time, and with greater comfort than ever before. The Infinity produces intense light pulses that target the hair and generate heat energy deep within the root of the hair inside the follicle. This heat then affects the surrounding cells that are responsible for the generation of new hair, inhibiting growth and resulting in long lasting hair removal.
The addition of galvanic energy, which is transferred to the skin through an electrode on the tip of the Infinity, helps stimulate the skin and opens the pores, allowing the light energy to penetrate deeper and reach the root of the hair more effectively. With the Infinity, you get better hair removal results in less time. Plus the light emitter of the Infinity is able to generate 400,000 light pulses, which is enough for a lifetime of treatments without ever needing to be replaced.
