Get Your Legs Smooth for Summer With Laser Hair Removal Treatment
You already know that beach bodies are made in the winter but don’t forget about getting your skin summer ready, too! As we head into the new year – and another month closer to swimsuit season – there’s no better time to schedule your laser hair removal treatment. By starting laser hair removal now, you’ll be able to enjoy smoother, clearer, sexier skin just in time for the warmer months ahead. Curious about what to expect with laser hair removal and what kinds of results may be possible for you? Below, board-certified physician Dr. Austin Mitchell and the knowledgeable team of aesthetic providers at Brentwood Skin Clinic in Nashville, TN answer many of the most commonly asked questions about laser hair removal.
Does laser hair removal really work?
Laser hair removal, though highly effective in many cases, may be more appropriately thought of as laser hair reduction. This is because laser hair removal is not designed to permanently remove 100% of hair. Instead, laser hair removal offers men and women the opportunity to dramatically reduce the thickness, coarseness, density, and speed of their hair growth. In many cases, hair growth stops for many years or even decades. Other times, patients may experience a significant reduction in hair growth and/or have “stragglers” of regrowth from time to time. This unwanted regrowth can typically be stopped with routine maintenance treatments, or “touch-ups.” In general, laser hair removal is most effective when performed by a properly trained provider on patients with lighter skin and darker hair – though the advanced Soprano ICE® laser hair removal system used at Brentwood Skin Clinic is FDA cleared for all skin types.
Where can you get laser hair removal?
Some of the most popular treatment areas for laser hair removal include:
- Upper lip
- Male chest
- Bikini area
How many laser hair removal treatments will I need for my legs?
Because hair follicles go through cycles of activity and dormancy, patients will require a series of laser hair removal sessions at intervals of 4 – 6 weeks in order to achieve a complete treatment. On average, patients can expect to require about 3 – 5 treatment sessions to achieve their desired level of hair reduction, though some patients may require additional treatments.
Can I get laser hair removal in the summer?
While laser hair removal is available all year long, there are a number of reasons to consider laser hair removal treatment in the fall and/or winter months. Not only will this give you plenty of time to complete your course of treatment and enjoy silky, smooth skin just in time for summer, but it can also reduce your risk of side effects associated with heat and sun exposure. Following a laser hair removal treatment, patients must take great care to avoid sun exposure, as this can damage the healing skin and lead to discoloration, burning, and even scarring. Because temperatures are cooler in the fall and winter months, patients are typically more covered up indoors and, thus, naturally avoid excess sun exposure. By scheduling your laser hair removal treatment at the beginning of the year, you can be ready to show off your smooth, sizzling legs with confidence this summer.
