Many individuals have seen the benefits that come from using laser hair removal. They are able to toss out their razors, shaving cream and other tools that are used to get rid of excess and unwanted hair. However, one of the next decisions that a person needs to make is deciding when the best time is to start laser hair removal. This is a treatment that requires an individual to go in for multiple sessions that are spaced out at least a couple of weeks apart. There are several reasons why you may decide that Fall is the best time of year for you to start your laser hair removal treatments.
One of the very best reasons is because you are going to be wearing warm weather clothing during the time of year when you will begin treatments. Before you are able to come in for laser hair removal treatments, you cannot remove the follicles of the hairs that you want to have treated. This means that you cannot pluck or wax them. So in some cases, you may be required to grow the hair out in order for you to be a good candidate for treatment.
During our consultation, we will discuss with you the possibility of shaving your hair while you are preparing for your laser hair removal treatments. However, the main idea is that the follicle needs to be in place. This is what is treated using the lasers, and so it cannot be removed in the weeks before treatment.
Most individuals do not experience a lot of discomfort when they come in for laser hair removal. However, they may experience a little bit of a snapping or stinging sensation when the laser is used. This may lead to a little bit of redness or swelling in the area that was treated. During the Fall, you can more easily cover-up these areas until they heal.
Most individuals want to have hair-free legs, armpits and other places on their body when they are thinking about wearing shorts, skirts and other warm weather clothing. If you begin your laser hair removal process in the Fall, not only will all of your laser hair removal treatments be done by the Spring, but your skin will also be smooth, free of any irritation and ready to show off to the world. As mentioned, the treatments are spaced a couple of weeks apart, and you may need several treatments in order to get the best results. So if you start in the Fall, you will have at least a few months before you are ready to wear shorts and swimsuits.
Another reason to start treatment in the Fall is because some individuals have a more open schedule during this time. Usually, during the Summer and Spring months, a person is out engaging in recreation with their family and friends. And even though you can definitely engage in recreation during the Fall and Winter, sometimes there are fewer options. This may mean that your schedule is a little bit more open and you have the time that is needed for multiple treatments.
