Are you prone to getting razor burn or ingrown hairs on your bikini line? The better question is, who isn’t? While the winter keeps us bundled up indoors — and grooming our bikini lines is probably the LAST thing on our minds — we wanted to give a quick shout out for laser hair removal because now is the ideal time to undergo a series of treatments.
Here are three good reasons to schedule laser hair removal ASAP.
Treatment now means results when you need them.
Laser hair removal only works on hair follicles that are in the active, hair-growing stage. Unfortunately, our hair follicles are never active at the same time. One laser hair removal treatment will disable thousands of hair follicles, but it won’t get the follicles that are in a dormant stage. This is why we perform laser hair removal as a series of treatments. Each subsequent treatment gets you closer to reaching and disabling all your targeted hair follicles. Many of our patients see their best results after a series of five or six treatments, spaced about four to six weeks apart. Add all this time up and you can safely spend a winter undergoing laser hair removal treatments. It’s well-spent time because you’ll be hair-free and carefree in time for the spring and summer months, when you want to see and show off your results!
You’ll get better results now.
In warm weather, we’re outdoors and exposed to the sun frequently. As you know, laser treatments and the sun are a horrible mix. This is why we love administering all of our laser skin treatments, including laser hair removal, in the cooler months because it’s so much easier to keep your skin away from the sun this time of year. Staying away from the sun is vital because it reduces your risk of side effects and also boosts your chances of success, since the laser works best on untanned skin.
It’s a genius way to maximize “relaxed” grooming habits.
This tip is for all the regular waxers out there who are religious about waxing during the warm weather months. Chances are, your waxing ritual is a lot more relaxed during the winter because you’re covered up and no one really notices your legs or bikini line right now. This is a good thing for laser hair removal! Waxing is the worst thing you can do! Instead of waxing, we ask that you start shaving your target areas before your laser hair removal sessions. Shaving keeps your hair follicles intact, which is vital to successful treatments since laser hair removal only works by disabling your hair follicles. If you’ve waxed your hair, you’ve removed the hair root, so there’s nothing to disable. What’s more, shaving helps keep your hair follicles in the active, treatable stage.
You deserve to live freely and confidently!
Imagine living a life unencumbered by razor burn and ingrowns. Would you like to walk tall in your bathing suit next summer without worrying about how “clean” your bikini line looks? We can help you do just that with a series of laser hair reduction treatments this winter.
