With spring right around the corner, there is no perfect time to begin your laser hair removal journey than now! Dreaming of soon-to-be shorts weather and vacation time, you don’t want to miss the best time to begin your hair removal sessions. Continue reading to learn what exactly laser hair removal is, who is a candidate for this treatment and why now is the best time to begin your sessions!
What is Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal is the process of removing the hair in specific areas of your body, as the name suggests. The laser targets the melanin in the hair follicle, which inhibits or delays the hair growth. At Deux Rosé Beauty Refinery, we use a 810mm laser to target the hair. Unfortunately, one treatment is not enough to permanently prevent the hair growth. Typically, we recommend a minimum of six sessions with 4-8 weeks in between each session to achieve optimal results.
Why is Now the Best Time to Begin?
Winter time is the best time to begin your laser hair removal sessions, as it presents less opportunities for your skin to be exposed to the sun. Laser hair removal treatments can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun, so it’s best to avoid it as much as possible. When you begin your laser treatments in the winter season, that means you will be seeing your results just in time for the warmer weather!
Am I a Candidate for Laser Hair Removal?
Laser hair removal treatments work best on patients with lighter skin tones and darker hair. Since the laser targets the melanin in the skin, patients with these characteristics typically see the quickest results.
Patients with darker skin tones tend to have a more challenging time with laser hair treatments, as there is more melanin in the upper layers of the skin which leads to an increased chance of burns from the laser. Due to this risk, your aesthetician will lower the power of the laser, meaning patients with darker skin tones typically require between 8-10 sessions to see optimal results.
Additionally, patients with lighter hair (such as blonde or red) can also be more complicated to treat. Because the laser targets the melanin in the hair follicle, that can be challenging in patients with lighter hair colors. This means that lighter-hair patients will also require between 8-10 sessions to achieve optimal results.
Regardless of your skin tone and hair color, we recommend booking a consultation first. With a consultation, your aesthetician will be able to build a comprehensive laser hair removal plan specifically for you. Let Deux Rosé Beauty Refinery help you look and feel your best!
