Yes, it’s the winter, but the spring fashions are already filling up store racks and shelves and, by spring, you’ll start seeing swimsuits everywhere too. Ah, swimsuit season – sunny days, pool parties and maybe a vacation at the shore! You’ve still got plenty of time to tweak your diet, start working out and toning up so you’ll be ready by the time summer arrives, but wouldn’t it be great to be hair-free by swimsuit season?
Hair Removal Options
It’s fair to say that most women wage a daily battle with excess hair. Whether it’s an unwanted “mustache”, a “unibrow”, hair along the bikini line or just the hassle of underarm and leg hair that seems to begin growing again within hours after it’s shaved, excess hair removal is the hassle that never seems to end.
Electrolysis isn’t an option for many women since it’s an incredibly slow process, and waxing is messy and painful — not to mention that the hair that’s being waxed has to be on the long side for the procedure to be effective. Then there’s the depilatory option. Smelly, messy and perhaps more trouble than it’s worth, when all is said and done. We’re talking about laser hair removal, but not just any laser hair removal, this is the GOLD standard!
Have You Considered Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal can target much larger treatment areas than electrolysis, so it’s faster by far. It works by aiming a beam of light at hair. The targeted light is absorbed by the pigment (melanin), and damages the follicle enough to retard future growth.
With some lasers, results can last anywhere from a few months to a couple of years, but clinics using a LightSheer diode laser can deliver permanent results after 6 treatments. (Note: The LightSheer is the first laser that has been approved by the American FDA for hair removal, so you can rest assured that it’s safe and effective.)
Can It Damage Skin?
Damage to your skin is unlikely, partly because the laser performs its magic in a series of short, rapid pulses. In other words, the laser turns off before it can damage your skin. However, you should avoid sun exposure after treatment as the area will be more vulnerable to the damaging effects of the sun’s UV rays.
Does It Hurt?
Everybody’s perception of pain or discomfort is different. For some, the sensation is mild, while for others, it can feel a little like a snap from a rubber band. However, a diode laser can be complemented by cooling technology, or other pain reducing methods which improve both efficacy and patient comfort.
Does It Work for Everybody?
The LightSheer laser is generally very effective and safe for all skin types, but like most laser hair removal systems, it is most effective when there is a contrast between hair color and skin (light skin, dark hair).
How Do I Prepare for Laser Hair Removal?
To prepare for your treatment, all you need do is shave prior to your arrival! Then get ready to experience the freedom from razor nicks and burns, smelly messy depilatories and painful waxing once and for all!
