Well, January is almost over. But the cold and snowy winter still has a whole lot of life to it. Depending on who you are, this is either really good or really bad news. Rarely is there ever any in-between. So, for those of you who can’t stand the winter, here’s hoping that the following information can make for the rest of the winter months be bright ones for you.
It’s the perfect time of year for laser hair removal treatments! Now, you may be wondering what the big deal is. You can get your hair removed at any time of year, right? Well, of course you can. But during the winter months, when your skin is predominantly covered from head to toe, you offer your body the ideal opportunity to rid itself of unwanted hair. Want to know why?
Your Skin Is Paler. Laser hair removal works best on pale skin and dark hair. So during the summer time, when your skin gets more sun, you give it less of an opportunity to adequately remove hair using a laser. Think of it this way. You know how it’s a good idea to avoid wearing black on hot summer days? That’s because the darker colour absorbs more heat. This is what makes the lasers used for hair removal so effective!
Less Interruptions. During the winter, you should hopefully have more time to devote to your laser hair removal sessions. The kids are in school so you’re not forced to entertain them on a daily basis. The holidays have just ended so you’re less likely to be planning parties and frantically shopping for gifts. It’s a good time of year to get into a routine that you can stick to.
Ideal Preparation For Bikini Season. Let’s face it. You really want to be smooth for the summer time anyways, right? So why not do your laser hair removal sessions during a season when no one will be privy to your progress? It’s much easier to keep things under wraps – or literally your legs under pants – during the winter. When the summer comes, you should be all set to take to the beach without fear!
It’s Virtually Painless. Okay, so it doesn’t matter if you opt for laser hair removal during the winter or any other time of year – the process is virtually painless. In fact, most patients liken the feeling of getting the treatment to light snapping or pinching. Patients getting the treatment are generally quite calm and comfortable. Now compare that to the agonizing processes of shaving, waxing and tweezing.
It Saves You Money. Speaking of those traditional hair removal practices, consider the costs of shaving cream, razors, wax strips, tweezers and the like. You’re constantly having to replace them, therefore, the whole hair removal process is an ongoing money-draining practice. Once you’ve undergone the appropriate number of laser hair removal sessions, you can do away with buying any of the above mentioned items again.
