Laser Hair Removal for Male Swimmers

male laser hair removal

Competitive swimmers could speed up their times in the pool as well as in preparation by considering laser hair removal.

For swimming competitions, every tiny little factor to improve performance must be considered. That’s why many male swimmers join their female counterparts in shaving body hair.

Male body hair can cause a certain element of ‘drag’ in the water. Men’s body hair tends to be much longer and thicker than women’s, so many men get body hair removed to ensure they are as sleek and ‘aerodynamic’ in the water as possible.

Male Body Hair Areas

Areas topping the list of hair removal for men are:

  • arms
  • chest
  • legs
  • back
  • shoulders

How Male Swimmers Remove Body Hair

Hair removal is traditionally done the night before a big race.

Firstly, long or thick hair is generally trimmed down with electric clippers as close to the skin as possible. Then the remaining stubble is shaved, most commonly using shaving foam and a double blade razor in the bath.

Some men shave all over to ensure that dead skin cells are removed too – even the soles of feet, palms of hands can be shaved. Some shave their heads too.

Waxing for Men

Waxing is an alternative form of hair removal which lasts longer than shaving and provides a smoother result. Hot wax is applied directly to the skin with a spatula, then a strip of special material is spread out over the top and quickly removed with the wax and hair stuck to it.

Laser Hair Removal for Men

Laser hair removal is a very compelling alternative for athletes, offering long-term benefits with significant hair reduction. Laser hair removal attacks and destroys the follicle so that the hair cannot regrow. This means enjoying smooth skin every day with far less fuss before a big competition.
