Start Laser Hair Removal Treatment Now and Be Pool-Ready by Summer

Laser hair removal is an easy process that gets rid of most unwanted hair forever. Shaving and waxing can’t claim that.

But laser hair removal isn’t an overnight procedure. You might need several appointments to achieve optimal results. That’s why you should start laser hair removal treatment in winter, so your body can be pool-ready by summer.

Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa in Godfrey, Illinois, offers laser treatments that can help you banish your unwanted hair. Here’s how.

What is laser hair removal?

During laser hair removal treatments, Dutch Hollow Medical Day Spa employs laser light energy to destroy hair follicles, which prevents hair from growing back. Facial hair, because of hormones, may be the exception and could return after laser treatments.

You can use lasers to remove hair virtually anywhere you shave or wax. Legs, arms, bikini areas, and backs are popular targets. Not only does hair remain gone forever, but you don’t suffer from the stubble and razor bumps that often accompany shaving. 

Laser hair removal has no downtime. But it’s not a quick solution to unwanted hair. You may need at least six sessions, separated by at least two weeks. In total, the process can take about six months.

That’s why we suggest you start laser hair removal treatments long before summer or vacations that involve showing a lot of skin.  

Why you should think about hair removal now

The first warm days of summer make most people think about peeling off layers of warm clothing and exposing body parts covered during the cold months. That’s often the time people start thinking about laser hair removal. But if you first start treatments in summer, you’ll be done when it ends.

Layers protect treatment areas

Layers come in handy when you’re in the middle of laser hair removal. Treatment areas are particularly vulnerable to sun exposure, and warm clothing guards your skin against damaging sun rays. Scheduling laser hair removal treatments in during the colder months lets you comfortably shield legs and arms, which are usually more exposed during summer. 

Pasty skin is a plus

Laser hair removal works best on untanned skin. That’s another plus for starting laser treatments in winter, when last year’s tan has faded.

If you’re a fan of artificial tanning, you need to take a break from tanning salons while you’re receiving laser hair removal treatments. But isn’t that a small sacrifice if you never have to shave in summer again?

If you’re fed up with the inconvenience, pain, and expense of constant waxing and shaving, laser hair removal could be right for you. Make the most of the cold, and start treatments now. Give us a call at 618-227-7168, or use our online booking tool to request an appointment.
