If you’re tired of having to shave every day – not to mention the nicks and cuts that come with it – just to look sleek and smooth in your warm weather outfits and swimwear, there is an alternative.
Both men and woman looking for a more permanent solution to unwanted body hair can choose laser hair removal.
In as little as four hour-long sessions, laser hair removal can stop hair growth by cutting off blood flow to hair follicles. It’s a safe, virtually painless procedure with practically no side effects. It’s also a convenient way to say goodbye to unwanted hair in several areas:
· Bikini Area
· Upper Lip
· Facial Hair
When To Schedule Your Laser Hair Removal
If you elect to undergo laser hair removal, the best time to do it is at the end of summer, or during the fall or winter. Why? Because laser hair removal requires multiple treatments, each of which are staggered six to 10 weeks apart. So, once summer has begun, there isn’t enough time to complete the treatment before the season is over.
There are other reasons why it makes sense to undergo laser hair removal in the latter part of the year.
One of them involves color. The greater the contrast between your skin color and hair color, the more efficient the laser hair removal process. Dark hair more readily absorbs the heat energy of the laser, and thus is more effectively destroyed. Also, if you have tanned skin, the power of the laser needs to be turned down, which can result in the need for more treatment sessions. For fair-skinned patients, you may need fewer laser hair removal treatments during the fall and winter months.
Another factor affecting the timing of your treatments is your skin’s sensitivity to sun exposure. You need to wait about one month after completing your laser hair removal treatment before you can start working on your tan. This waiting period helps prevent skin damage and discoloration, and it’s why fall and winter are generally the best times for laser hair removal.
If are worried about too much sunlight exposure even in cooler months, you should wear sunscreen and avoid contact with sunlight right after laser hair removal treatments.
