Why Do We Recommend Starting Your Laser Hair Reduction Treatments During Fall?
As fall comes, short and bikini season fades, we tend to think less about hair removal as we show off less skin and hide the unwanted hair underneath our favorite sweaters and long pants. But with the smell of pumpkin spice comes the best season to actually start your laser hair reduction treatments, and we’ll explain why.
The Timing - Get Ready For The Upcoming Summers in Time
Laser hair reduction is a great and effective way to get rid of unwanted hair. But as the highly-concentrated intense pulsed light targets hair specifically in the new-growth stage which happens in different circles for each hair, you will need several treatments — with four to six weeks between — to reach the overall results. Depending on the hair’s thickness, color, and skin pigment, the number of sessions would vary for each person. But for example, permanently reducing hair on the legs can take about 4-8 treatments, with 6-8 weeks in between. This means if you want to have completely smooth skin for summer — without the extra hustle of constant shaving, plucking, or waxing —, you should start planning in time. Do it for the future you!
When contacting LEC, our licensed estheticians will guide you through the exact process, and the recommended sessions you personally need to most effectively reach the results you desire.
The Skin - Less Sunlight, Less Worry
Yes, we miss the summer sun just as much as anybody else. But less sun exposure can actually come in handy when you are going through laser hair removal treatments. Too much sun exposure after any laser treatment can cause hyperpigmentation, so it’s best to avoid it as much as possible two weeks before and after each session. This can be pretty challenging and inconvenient during summer when all you want to do is lay on the beach.
Even though there might be less direct sunlight, we still recommend using SPF 30 or above on a daily basis, so your skin can stay safe, healthy, and juvenile!
