Sweater weather is here! As we don our favorite cardigans and long johns to stay toasty in the cold, crisp air, the last thing on our minds is our bikini line. Yet winter is the ideal time for laser hair removal in Chesapeake, VA.
At Chesapeake Vein Center and MedSpa, we encourage our patients to begin laser hair removal in the winter months for three main reasons:
- We Need Your Roots: Laser hair removal won’t work if you’ve recently waxed or plucked, which we are apt to do in the summer months. Because these lasers specifically target the roots of your hair, we recommend that you stop plucking and waxing for at least six weeks before treatment.
- Lasers Hate the Sun: Exposure from the sun makes laser hair removal less effective and increases the likelihood of complications after treatment. We ask our patients to avoid sun exposure for six weeks before and after treatment, which is much easier to do in the winter months when we are indoors and out of the sun.
- Treatment Takes Time: Depending on the area of your body and the amount and type of hair you are removing, you will need to undergo multiple treatments because hair growth occurs in stages. So if you’re determined to be bikini-ready by summer, we recommend that you start treatment months in advance.
It takes a bit of planning and preparation, but the results of laser hair removal are worth it! With laser hair removal in Chesapeake, you can say goodbye to unsightly razor bumps and ingrown hairs and say yes to a more confident, smoother you! Call 757.663.5461 to schedule a consultation.
