Laser hair Removal Benefits & Tips

        Tip #1 – Winter is the ideal season to have Laser Hair Removal

        It’s a fact that Laser Hair Removal works best on paler skin. Usually, by winter most people have lost the majority of their summer tan. A sun tan on the treated area/s decreases the efficacy of the treatment & when skin is tanned the laser settings could need to be reduced in order to protect the skin from a potential burn. Both of these issues mean more treatments could be needed if you have laser hair removal during the summer or at times when you have a tan.

        With daylight savings and the colder weather, people usually spend less time outdoors, which means there is more time available to complete a series of laser hair removal sessions, making it a great time to get into a routine and actually follow through so you get the best result. At the BioSpa we find that patients who try to fit their sessions in during Spring or Summer tend to be less committed to following the protocol for treatment, because they are distracted by the nice weather and want to be out & about enjoying themselves.

        After each laser treatment, targeted areas tend to become sensitive to light, so we advise our laser hair removal patients to protect the treated area from the sun. Keeping treated areas out of the sun is much easier in the wintertime.

        Completing your laser hair removal over the winter months means you will be ready to go in time for Summer! If you get started early enough, you could even be ready for Spring Break!

        Tip #2 – Properly plan out your treatment schedule, so you don’t miss appointments or fail to complete your series. The innovative laser tool by Lutronic® Aesthetic is safe for all skin types, however, you will still need to set aside time for 4-6 sessions spaced apart approximately every 6 weeks.

        Tip #3 – Don’t pluck, wax, or bleach the area being treated for 4-6 weeks before and after your scheduled appointment.

        Tip #4 – DO NOT expose the area being treated to the sun for at least 2 weeks prior to your appointment. Remember – the lighter your skin the better.

        Tip #5 – If you are considering laser hair removal for multiple areas, combining them into one series of treatments will not only save you money but will also save you time compared to treating multiple areas one by one.
