Are you tired of constantly tweezing, waxing, and shaving body hair? These time-consuming and often painful hair removal strategies can give you temporary results, but for a permanent solution, you might consider laser hair removal. Winter is the perfect season for treatment, offering many benefits you’ll want to take advantage of!
Pale Skin is More Effective
Laser hair removal uses laser pulses to destroy the hair follicle. The paler your skin is, the more contrast there is between the skin and hair, making the laser more effective. Your skin will naturally become paler in the winter months as you spend more time indoors. You’re also less likely to develop a sunburn prior to treatment that could delay the process! It is recommended to avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after each treatment session for best results.
Take Advantage of Cold Weather
When the weather gets cold, you probably cover up with pants and sleeves, making body hair less of a concern. This is actually a great time to consider laser hair removal because you are required to limit tweezing, waxing, and other hair removal techniques that remove the hair’s root. You can comfortably allow hair to grow before treatment without having to worry about it showing in bathing suits or other summer clothes. It’ll also be easier to cover any redness, swelling, or other mild effects of treatment you may experience.
Finish Treatment in Time for Summer
Due to the natural cycle of hair growth, only about 30 percent of the hairs can be removed with one session. Therefor multiple treatment sessions are recommended for complete results (80-90% removal). Most individuals require about six to eight spaced-out treatment sessions. So, although you may not be concerned with removing visible body hair right now, it’s a great time to start so your results are ready by summer!
