WHY NOW IS THE BEST TIME TO BOOK LASER HAIR REMOVAL
Laser hair removal works to destroy the hair follicle, offering permanently smooth limbs on almost every part of the face and body. Just imagine not having to think about shaving or waxing ever again! Although you can book laser hair removal treatments at any time of the year, the autumn and winter months (October to March) are the most practical time to schedule your sessions. Here’s why…
IT’S EASIER TO PREPARE FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL IN THE WINTER
Prior to your laser session, the hair in the treatment area needs to be grown out slightly and shaved off. Starting the course during the colder months is ideal, as we tend to remain covered up in tights or jeans and don’t have to worry about waxing and being hair free.
IT CAN TAKE A FEW MONTHS TO FINISH THE LASER HAIR REMOVAL COURSE
It usually takes around three to six treatments, spaced four to six weeks apart to complete a course of laser hair removal. This is becauseour hair grows in cycles and we need to catch the hair at the right time – known as the active growth phase.
If you want guaranteed smoother skin when the warmer weather makes an appearance, give yourself sufficient time by starting your hair removal journey during the autumn or winter.
LASERED SKIN IS SENSITIVE TO THE SUN
Laser treated skin is more sensitive to the sun. You must not expose your skin to the sun or use fake tan for at least two weeks before your treatment. The lasers used for hair removal cannot differentiate between the pigment in the hair follicle and the pigment from a tan -and this can trigger hypo-pigmentation (lighter patches of skin) after the treatment.
Minimising sun exposure post treatment is also crucial in order to reduce your chances of developing hyperpigmentation (brown patches of skin).
At Laser and Skin Group, we use the Cynosure Hair Removal system- one of the most superior and sophisticated deviceson the market. The laser offers 90 per cent hair reduction, as it uses laser light to precisely target, heat and destroy the hair follicle.
