Men Embarrassed by Body Hair

Men and Skin Care Atlanta GA

We all have hang-ups about our bodies, or certain traits that threaten our self-esteem. When it comes to men, however, new research finds that over half of men admit to feeling “embarrassed” about their body hair. The New York Post recently weighed in on these findings, which reveal that of the top five hang-ups that men have about their body, chest hair and back hair are the top two (ranking just above beer belly, acne and lack of muscle). This unwanted body hair proved to be the reason that 1/3 of men avoided the swimming pool and 1 in 4 men avoided time in the gym.

Body Hair and “Manly Stigmas”

The New York Post article not only featured body hair as the leading body hang-up for men, but it also explained the mindset behind their perception. While millennials are beginning to change things, our society still follows stigmas that suggest male grooming (and even skin care) is not manly. The study showed that over half of men (56 percent) agree that men should only shave their face and that 54 percent of men feel there is a societal stigma attached to men who care about grooming habits

This has led many men to shy away from hair removal products that involve anything else but their face. So if daily shaving is too much of an inconvenience or threat to your “man card,” then you may want to consider another solution using laser hair removal.

If you’re one of those guys who admits feeling ashamed about their chest hair or back hair, laser hair removal can be the answer to a more confident you.

Mandy Ramer, NP-C was such a pleasure to meet with. She listened to all of my concerns and addressed each one with a plan that fit my needs. I am so glad I picked Olansky Dermatology. Absolutely thrilled with their service from appointment setting through check out.

Kara E.

The appointment process is quick easy and convenient online. Parking is easy enough. I got in basically right at my appointment time. I didn’t have to wait hardly at all. The doctors and nurses are nice, knowledgeable and helpful. The procedure I had was easy and I got out fast and was on my way.

This was probably the best experience I’ve ever had going to a dermatologist. Every interaction I had with the staff was pleasant and they were so helpful. I had accidentally cancelled my appointment and the girls at the front desk help me get in so I could be seen and someone could help me. Which I really appreciated, most places would have just turned me away. The doctor or pa I saw that day I can’t remember her name was lovely and took great care of me. I will be going to Olansky’s going forward. You will not be disappointed! The staff is excellent!

Coriana W.

Dr. Bender honestly changed my life around. I had extremely bad hormonal and cystic acne, and have been told for years that there is nothing I can do but wash my face and etc.. Dr. Bender gave me hope that there is hope she helped get my confidence back and now I’m finally free. She cares about her patients and takes her time with you every visit. If you need help in anything derma-logical then you really need to go to her.

Jenny S.

The doctors and PA’s are great and very knowledgeable. I never have to wait to long and the office staff is always very nice. I also take my son there and they are great with him as well. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology.

Kristen R.

Olansky Dermatology is wonderful! Our whole family goes. My daughter has had terrible eczema through the years and both my kids had mollescum too. They always make things better and spend time explaining whats wrong and how to fix it.

Mike D.

I recently had a couple appointments at Olanksy Dermatology and was seen by Julia Lee. Julie was excellent and quickly took care of the issue I was having with my skin. I would highly recommend Olansky Dermatology and especially Julia Lee to anyone in need of a dermatologist.

Tamima D.

My husband is a patient of PA Sharon Doering I appreciate all she did for my spouse. She’s very down to earth & made him feel comfortable. Sharon communicated in a way that he can understand.
Thank You

I have had excellent experience at Olansky Dermatology. Dr Burger is meticulous and thorough and has a most pleasant and calm manner. I have every confidence in her and this office.

Cheyenne G.

Very kind and understanding people. Dr. Bellamy and her nurse took the time to listen to all my concerns and never made me feel rushed.

Kishan P.

I was actually running a bit late, but they were very friendly and knowledgeable about what was going on with my skin. And also very timely.I will definitely stick with them!

Khol S.

Very professional and pleasant staff. When I arrived at my appointment this afternoon I was informed that my doctor called out sick and they tried calling to let me know but I just recently changed my number so they were unable to reach me. The receptionist was so sweet and helpful. Instead of leaving and making a new appointment they fit me in without an issue and without any waiting.

Susan H.

Dr. Ilyas was highly recommended to me so I decided to change dermatologists. I am so glad as I am pleased with his expertise and his highly professional manner. I am also delighted with Emily Raville, Aesthetician. She does a wonderful job and I am recommending her to my friends as well. I am completely satisfied – can’t get any better than that!
