The Right Time to Start
Laser Hair Removal

If you’re ready to ditch the razor and toss the wax out the window, then Laser Hair Removal may be the right choice for you! But when should you start? We say right now, and with good reason! Laser Hair Removal is a procedure you want to take care of proactively, and not reactively. And what exactly do we mean by that? 

Stop in this fall!

Laser Hair Removal is best done when you’re not going to see prolonged exposure to the sun. So while you’re probably thinking it’s a good idea to see what LHR is about when spring has sprung, the opposite is actually true. Laser therapy treatments require you to avoid direct sunlight, tanning, spray tans and self-tanning lotions. Think about it this way: you’re trying to get rid of that pesky unwanted hair… might as well do it when you’re rocking your layers! As you brave the cool weather that autumn and winter have to offer, you’ll have what we consider an awesome head start for the warmer seasons. Springtime will be here before you know it, and you’ll already be well on your way to optimal results if you start early. 

Why didn’t I think of that?!

Because it’s counterintuitive. Typically, 8 to 10 successive LHR treatments are required for optimal results. Facial hair usually requires 12 to 16 successive treatments. Each session should be spaced about 4 to 8 weeks apart, depending on the area of the body being treated. Since only the hair in the active growth phase is affected by the laser, the repeat treatments are necessary to reach maximum reduction. 

So if you think about it, the cooler months are the perfect time to get started with your Laser Hair Removal treatments. Before you know it, bikini season will be in full swing, and you already did all the legwork (or arm-work, or bikini area work!), and you’re ready to hit the beach! Just let this be our little secret.
