Spring is here. That means summer’s right around the corner. And that means wearing shorts, skirts, and dresses. To prep for summer you have to get in shape -- and you have to trim some winter growth. These are the spots you should focus on:

  1. Your face. Facial hair on women is more common than you think. You can grow hair on your chin, around your mouth, on your cheeks, and above your eyes.
  2. Your privates. The bikini line is totally where you remove unwanted hair, especially during the spring and summer months. Prepare for swimsuit season by opting for bikini or Brazilian hair removal services.
  3. Your legs. A hot spot for hair removal, particularly during spring and summer, when you like to sport shorts, dresses, and skirts.
  4. Your armpits. Warm weather brings out unsightliness in this area. Deal with it soon.
  5. Your chest and back. Are you a swimmer or an athlete? If you are, then you’ll have an especially have a tough time with these areas.

Laser hair removal works

The only way to achieve permanent hair reduction with just a few treatments, laser hair removal is noninvasive and fast. And it leaves your skin softer and smoother. So say goodbye to time-consuming painful shaving and waxing.

Though laser hair removal may seem like magic, the science behind it is simple. Laser hair removal uses laser light pulses that selectively destroy hair follicles by targeting the melanin in them. The follicle’s pigment absorbs the laser’s light pulse, and the follicle becomes damaged enough to significantly slow down hair regrowth. Since the lasers target melanin, coarse, dark hair and light skin combinations tend to respond best to treatment.

Clients with darker hair and darker skin and lighter hair and lighter skin combinations can still achieve desirable results with a Nd:YAG laser. The Nd:YAG laser has a longer wavelength and better pigment selectivity than other lasers used for hair removal, meaning that it can penetrate hair follicles more precisely and leaves the surrounding skin tissue undamaged.

Your typical laser hair removal session

A laser hair removal procedure’s length depends on the size of the treatment area. It may last from a few minutes to several hours. Before the actual laser hair removal session, you’ll be given protective eye gear and an elective topical anesthetic. Once the session begins, you’ll feel a stinging sensation. This indicates that the laser has been activated. A session involves a series of laser pulses that produces a prickling and burning sensation. Don’t worry, though; the pain isn’t too bad. It’s similar to that of a rubber band snapping against your skin.

After the laser hair removal session is over, you may experience temporary swelling and redness. Most clients can resume their normal activities. It’s important that you avoid direct sun exposure. You should also wear sunblock with a high SPF for several weeks afterward.

Laser hair removal delivers results

Dermatologists agree that laser hair removal is the preferred way to remove hair. It’s safer and more permanent than waxing, plucking, shaving, and electrolysis. Laser hair removal is so effective that most clients experience permanent hair reduction after three to five sessions. You’ll have to attend several laser hair removal sessions to realize the best results because only hair in the anagen—or active—stage of hair growth can be successfully treated.

What’s more, laser hair removal is the only proven method available for easily and painlessly removing hair from large areas of the body, including the back, chest, legs, and face.
