Get silky smooth skin with laser hair removal

If you’re tired of plucking, shaving and waxing, then you should consider laser hair removal to help you achieve smooth skin before the summer months. Imagine wearing your bikini, shorts and dresses and not having to worry about daily shaving. Read on to learn more about laser hair removal and why you should be getting it done now.

What is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal removes unwanted hair by using a highly concentrated light into hair follicles. Pigment in the hair follicles absorbs the light, which destroys the hair.

Where can laser hair removal be done?

The most common areas on the body where laser hair removal is done include the legs, underarms, arms, bikini line, face, chin and back.

How do I prepare for treatment?

You will need to avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment, as sun exposure makes treatment less effective. Before your first treatment, you should limit waxing, plucking and electrolysis for about six weeks. Why? Waxing and plucking removes the root of hair, which is what the laser targets.

How can I expect during treatment?

Hair in the treatment area will be trimmed back. A topical numbing medicine may be applied before the treatment to help with the slight sting of the laser. The technician will use a cold gel or cooling device to help the laser light penetrate the skin and destroy the hair follicle.

What is recovery like?

After the treatment, you may use ice packs or anti-inflammatory creams to help ease any discomfort. Your skin will feel and look as if it’s sunburned for the next day or two.

How many treatments will I need?

You will need to space your treatments 4-6 weeks apart. This is because you are only able to successfully treat hair that is in the active growth phase. That’s why now is a good time to get started on a treatment plan, just in time for warm weather months.

Why You Should Fall For Laser Hair Removal This Fall

Laser Hair Removal Chester, NJIf you feel like plucking, tweezing, waxing, and shaving may as well be your full-time job, then it may be time to pick a new hobby. With laser hair removal, Dr. Larry Weinstein can make you practically hair free in a matter of a few sessions (depending on the area). And with the cold weather here and your bikini safely stashed away until next year, we think that fall is one of the best times to consider getting laser hair removal.

What is Laser Hair Removal?

You may have heard about laser hair removal for the past decade or so but do you really know what it is? Laser hair removal works by using pulses of laser light to destroy the hair follicles. But because your body is full of millions of hair follicles, it can be hard for us to target all of them in just one session. Depending on your hair color and the location that we are targeting will help determine how many sessions you will need.

What Makes Fall Ideal?

Because you will have to get multiple sessions done to get rid of your hair, fall is the perfect time because you won’t have to worry about shaving in between each session. In fact, you can just let your hair grow in in-between. By starting your laser removal in the fall, we should be able to get rid of your hair just in time for bikini season next spring or summer; giving you enough time to kiss your razor goodbye for good.

In our book, anytime is a good time for you to get rid of excess unwanted hair, but fall is an exceptionally good time. Are you interested in learning a little bit more about hair removal? Contact our New Jersey office today and call us at 908-879-2222.
