Laser hair removal is an easy process that gets rid of most unwanted hair forever. Shaving and waxing can’t claim that.
But laser hair removal isn’t an overnight procedure. You might need several appointments to achieve optimal results. That’s why you should start laser hair removal treatment in winter, so your body can be pool-ready by summer.
Total Cosmetix medical spa in Irvine and Laguna Beach, California, offers laser treatments that can help you banish your unwanted hair. Here’s how.
What is laser hair removal?
During laser hair removal treatments, Total Cosmetix employs laser light energy to destroy hair follicles, which prevents hair from growing back. Facial hair, because of hormones, may be the exception and could return after laser treatments.
You can use lasers to remove hair virtually anywhere you shave or wax. Legs, arms, bikini areas, and backs are popular targets. Not only does hair remain gone forever, but you don’t suffer from the stubble and razor bumps that often accompany shaving.
Laser hair removal has no downtime. But it’s not a quick solution to unwanted hair. You may need at least six sessions, separated by at least two weeks. In total, the process can take about six months.
That’s why we suggest you start laser hair removal treatments long before summer or vacations that involve showing a lot of skin.
Why you should think about hair removal now
The first warm days of spring make most people think about peeling off layers of warm clothing and exposing body parts covered in winter. That’s often the time people start thinking about laser hair removal. But if you first start treatments in spring, you’re still undergoing treatments during summer.
Also, our medical spa gets busy in spring and summer. If you start hair removal treatments in winter, you’ll have an easier time getting an appointment that fits your schedule.
Winter layers protect treatment areas
Winter layers come in handy when you’re in the middle of laser hair removal. Treatment areas are particularly vulnerable to sun exposure, and winter clothing guards your skin against damaging sun rays. Scheduling laser hair removal treatments in winter lets you comfortably shield legs and arms, which are usually more exposed during spring and summer.
Pasty skin is a plus
Laser hair removal works best on untanned skin. That’s another plus for starting laser treatments in winter when last year’s tan has faded.
If you’re a fan of artificial tanning, you need to take a break from tanning salons while you’re receiving laser hair removal treatments. But isn’t that a small sacrifice if you never have to shave in summer again?
If you’re fed up with the inconvenience, pain, and expense of constant waxing and shaving, laser hair removal could be right for you. Make the most of winter, and start treatments now. Give us a call at 949 259 9625, or use our online booking tool to request an appointment.
