Sick of shaving and waxing? Are you participating in no-shave November? The fall and winter months are the perfect time to receive laser hair removal so you can prepare for summer next year!
Why Is Winter the Ideal Time for Laser Hair Removal?
Here in Rochester, NY, we have long winter months with little to do. It doesn’t take long to notice that our skin has lost its bronzed glow and the sun is starting to disappear. But fret not, this is the perfect time to take care of unwanted hair! When the skin is tan, it is unsafe to provide laser hair removal since the laser targets the darker pigment. This is also why laser hair removal is ineffective on lighter or white hairs.
How Many Laser Hair Removal Treatments Do I Need?
Whether you’re looking to treat your legs, upper lip, or bikini line, we have you covered. To achieve desirable results, it may take roughly 6-8 sessions spaced around 6 weeks apart (plus maintenance treatments when needed). So if you start now, you’ll have significantly reduced your unwanted hair by the time the warmer weather appears again!
What Does Laser Hair Removal Feel Like?
Hair removal sessions are fairly quick treatments, and from personal experience, they are very tolerable. The sensation is like a warm rubber band snapping on your skin. We have a fantastic device called the Zimmer Cryo 6, which blows cool air on the area during treatment to decrease the skin’s temperature, making it much more comfortable.
