The leaves have fallen, the holiday season is here in Ohio, but you’re already daydreaming about short shorts and bikinis next summer.  As we head into a wintery wonderland, now is the perfect time to start your laser hair removal treatment. In contrast to methods such as shaving and waxing, laser hair removal is convenient, pain-free, and permanent. Even better, it doesn’t leave unsightly bumps and rashes!It may seem odd to think about your summer hair removal routine even before the new year, but there are actually a few great reasons to schedule your consultation with us to get started with your laser hair removal sessions.

Less sun exposure

During your hair removal sessions, we’ll use lasers that target the pigment of your hair directly in the follicle. Over the course of treatment, this disrupts the follicle’s ability to produce new hair. Because laser hair removal works better on lighter and undamaged skin, sun exposure and tanning can minimize the effectiveness of the laser treatments. Treatments also require 2-4 weeks before and after treatment without sun exposure, which is much easier to do in the winter than the summer. Given the shorter days, less time outside, and more winter clothing, you’re much less likely to get too much sun exposure.

Time for treatment

Laser hair removal typically takes 4-6 weeks to fully remove the hair and allow your skin time to heal. Including the pre- and post-treatment time during which you need to be sun-free, this quickly adds up. During your treatment, you may experience slight discomfort that can be exacerbated by exposure to high temperatures and sunlight. We also highly recommend that you avoid direct sunlight on those areas being treated with laser hair removal, and summer makes that much more difficult. Since winter means warmer clothes and less time outdoors, it’s much easier to complete the full course of treatment without missing out on any summer fun.

So this winter,  take advantage of the winter weather and begin your laser hair removal sessions at Elite Body and Laser in Lewis Center, Ohio.  Just Call 614-334-4944 today to schedule your consultation.
