Why you should be thinking about bikini season now: Laser Hair Removal

posted on: February 12, 2015


Is anyone else ready for summer time? I sure am. When we start thinking about summer time and hair removal it’s often too late to start treatments. Most laser treatments require you to avoid the sun or be very careful about avoiding the sun after the treatment. Patients must also wait until their tan has faded from the previous summer before receiving most laser treatments. Now is a great time to get started. Another advantage of undergoing laser treatments during this time of year is that most lasers require a series of applications to yield optimal results. For example, laser hair removal typically requires 5-7 treatments, while vein reduction with sclerotherapy usually requires 2-3 treatments, etc. Therefore, it’s wise to give yourself a little extra lead time if you want to be able to show off your results on that beach vacation you’re planning this summer.

Laser hair removal is the best way to permanently reduce unwanted hair. Laser Hair Removal will not remove 100% of your hair. Typically it removes 70-85% of the hair, but the hair that is left is thinner, finer and grows in slower. Laser hair removal involves a beam of highly concentrated pulses of light penetrating through the skin being absorbed by hair follicles. The heat that is generated will ultimately destroy the hair and it’s potential for regrowth.  Learn more about laser hair removal in the above video.
