When is the Best Time to Have Laser Hair Removal?
Summer is still a few months off. The cold weather is still going on strong. And the thought of slipping into a bathing suit gives most of us the shivers. It’s easy to put off starting a laser hair removal regime until closer to the summer when everyone starts thinking about beach vacations and long days at the lake, but in reality the best time to begin laser hair removal is in the winter when you have no intention of showing off your newly smoothed skin. Why? There’s a reason why kick starting your laser hair removal in the winter offers better results. Our Delaware Surgical Spa answers common questions about laser hair removal.
Does Skin Tone Affect Laser Hair Removal?
Skin tone does affect laser hair removal results. Unless someone is visiting a tanning salon, most people’s skin is lighter during the winter months. People with paler skin and dark hair tend to respond more favorably to laser treatments. For that reason we recommend that you avoid tanning before and during treatments for a better outcome.
Can I Shave Before Laser Hair Removal?
Shaving before a treatment is fine, however, plucking hairs, waxing, or using electrolysis will affect the outcome of a treatment and should not be performed.
What Happens During Laser Hair Removal?
During a treatment, a laser hair removal specialist will use a hand-held laser to damage hair follicles. The device will be placed directly on your skin and will be moved over the surface of the treated area to prevent growth.
What Can I Expect After Laser Hair Removal?
Some common side effects of laser hair removal is having swollen and red skin for a few hours after the treatment. Rarely, burning or pigment disruption can take place. If this occurs, the practitioner will adjust the laser setting according to your skin’s needs.
How Quickly Will I see Results After Laser Hair Removal?
Results are unique to each person, however, most people will not see a noticeable difference in hair thickness and growth for a few treatments. Many people require 4-6 treatments for the most effective results. View our before and after page for some laser hair removal results.
Where are the Most Common Body Areas for Laser Hair Removal?
People tend to select the face, bikini region, legs, underarms, and back for laser treatments at our Delaware hair removal center.
