Are you sick and tired of traditional body hair removal such as waxing, tweezing, and shaving? Well, it’s officially spring – a time for new beginnings and fresh starts. It just so happens that spring is the ideal time to start your laser hair removal treatments, too! Instead of waiting for the re-growth of hair for waxing appointments or spending more time in the shower shaving, start your laser hair removal treatments today and watch as your hair…doesn’t grow back! Each time you are treated, there is about a 15 percent reduction in hair growth. We recommend at least six treatments for every client to get the best results possible. Not only do we have amazing package deals for our laser hair removal treatments, but we have the most advanced lasers on the market and highly trained registered nurses to ensure that by the end of your six sessions you will have forgotten all about the agony of other hair removal techniques.
Before you begin your laser hair removal treatments, it is important to know that no waxing or tweezing can be done for about four weeks prior to having your first laser treatment done, as well as in between each treatment. This is because the laser is attracted to the pigment in the hair follicle, so if the hair is removed from the follicle the laser will not be able to properly do its job of disabling the growth of new hair. Also, it is imperative that you do not tan your skin before and in between each appointment. This includes tanning from the sun, tanning beds, and spray tans or self-tanning lotions. As mentioned previously, the laser is attracted to pigment, so the darker your skin the greater the chance that 1. The laser won’t be able to find the “right” pigment (i.e. hair follicle), and 2. There is a risk for burn if an individual has too much pigment in their skin. Not to worry if you naturally have darker skin, though! Our nurses can still treat those with naturally more melanin in their skin – it just takes more treatments because they will go lightly with each treatment. So, before the summer sun comes out get those legs, bikini area, and/or back lasered so the only thing you have to think about this summer is which beach to go to!
