The snow is melting, the temperatures are rising, and summer is rapidly approaching. This is the time of year where many men and women start to daydream about the perfect beach body. Body contouring treatments are all the rage, and people are starting to think about laser hair removal. If you’re like many, you’re hoping to enjoy soft, smooth hair-free skin by the time summer rolls around.
How Does Laser Hair Removal Work?
To understand the best time of year for laser hair removal, you’ll need to have an idea about how treatments work. Laser hair removal uses thermal energy to target the pigmentation at the base of the hair follicle. It’s essential that surrounding skin be a blank canvas for the treatment (That means, no prior tanning!). To minimize potential superficial damage, its best to get laser hair removal before summer arrives.
Furthermore, your skin will be ultra-sensitive to UV-rays following your treatment. Get laser hair removal before longer, warmer spring and summer months approach. You are encouraged to wear protective clothing and use a sunscreen with an SPF of 30+ throughout your laser treatments.
When Will You See Results?
Some initial results can be seen immediately after your short, in-office visit. Noticeable results will continue to occur for about 2-weeks following each session. Only hairs that are in their active growth phase can be treated. Most patients need anywhere from 3-5 sessions to get the results they want.
Laser hair removal treatments are done every 4-6 weeks to achieve an optimal outcome. You’ll notice finer, lighter hairs with each consecutive treatment until hair is gone for good. Many patients have smooth, hair-free skin for years to come, while others enjoy lifetime results from laser hair removal.
Is Laser Hair Removal Right for You?
If you’re ready to be hair-free this summer, you might want to consider getting laser hair removal treatments sooner than later. During your in-person consultation, your skilled provider will start you on a hair removal plan to have you beach-body-ready in time for your summer vacation.
I went to Capital Skin Care to get a procedure done. The staff was ultra-professional, very nice, and did an amazing job. They fixed my issue right away and followed up to make sure everything went fine after the procedure. The offices are beautiful too. I was very happy and would absolutely come back and recommend it to others.
