Nickel men’s spa offers laser hair removal for men in Manhattan. Laser hair removal is a faster, gentler way to remove unwanted hair, with great results. Male laser hair removal treatment applies controlled pulses of energy, reaching into the active hair follicles that lie beneath the skin. The normal hair cycle is comprised of three stages: active growth-anagen, transition-catagen and resting telogen. All hair follicles go through these cycles and the only time you can destroy the hair follicles is when they are active. The energy heats the hair, right down to the bottom of the root, destroying it without damaging surrounding tissue of skin. The destroyed follicle cells are eliminated from the tissue by phagocytosis.
