Los Angeles, U.S.A – The expert staff at Renaissance Laser & Vein Institute has been noticing for some time that laser hair removal in Los Angeles is no longer primarily the domain of women. Now, ‘Mansome’, the newest film from pop documentarian Morgan Spurlock (“Super Size Me,” “The Greatest Movie Ever Sold”), which is playing in select theaters nationwide, is directing extra attention to a hairy topic.
The film humorously explores the lengths to which modern men will go to improve their appearance while maintaining their personal sense of masculinity. One primary focus of Spurlock’s comic attention is the practice of “manscaping,” i.e., trimming body hair for greater attractiveness. Comic actors Will Arnett and Jason Bateman of “Arrested Development” as well as Zach Galifianakis (‘The Hangover’), famed writer-director Judd Apatow (‘The 40 Year-Old Virgin’, ‘Knocked Up’) and radio host Adam Carolla provide humorous commentary on this growing phenomenon.
The fact of the matter is that aesthetic standards for both genders change over time. While massive mounds of chest and arm hair on men were once considered highly desirable and back hair was once charitably overlooked, 21st century pop culture has made it clear that that is no longer the case.
From Steve Carrell’s painful encounter with chest waxing in ‘The 40 Year-Old Virgin’ to the monthly shearing of actor Bryan Cranston as the ultra-hirsute father on the sitcom ‘Malcolm in the Middle’, excessive body hair is now far from sexy and mostly a subject of mirth. No wonder, then, that Renaissance Laser & Vein Institute is finding that providing men with laser hair removal in Thousand Oaks and other Southern California cities is one of its fastest growing services.
Of course, laser hair removal in Encino may be more common than in Dubuque or Boise but, as ‘Mansome’ points out, men’s interest in looking smooth and clean whether fully dressed or while partially (or fully) unclothed is a trend that transcends all demographic boundaries. The good news for men is that laser hair removal allows for permanent hair removal without the pain of waxing or the mess and difficulty of shaving at home. Renaissance Laser & Vein Institute provides the safest and most technologically advanced permanent laser hair removal on all parts of the body.
