Wouldn’t it be nice to enjoy a summer without having to worry about shaving or waxing? Wouldn’t it be nice to just put on your shorts and head out the door without having to run into the bathroom to shave first? These questions probably aren’t forefront in your mind at the moment, but having laser hair removal now can help to ensure a summer free of shaving and waxing!
Why should you plan for hair removal now?
Laser hair removal is convenient and effective – but it does take more than one treatment. It can take 6 to 8 sessions to completely get rid of hair. The number of sessions you need depends on factors such as your hair color and how coarse the hair is that you want removed.
You should also start planning early for hair removal because you will need to prepare your skin beforehand, by letting your tan fade and avoiding the sun for about a month. And, for about 2 weeks after treatment, you’ll want to avoid tanning and exposure to the sun. Your doctor may have other instructions for you to follow for best results, as well.
Why should you have laser hair removal?
Most people who have had laser hair removal love the results and can’t imagine life without it. It makes life a little less hectic, as you don’t have to worry about shaving or waxing all the time. It is very effective – the hair follicle is destroyed by the laser to keep hair from coming back (although you still may need touch ups every few months), and some people see as much as a 90% reduction of hair.
Men and women both get hair removed, on the chest, abdomen, bikini area, back, face, arms, and legs. It is very safe, has been used by millions of people, and is FDA approved.
