Believe it or not, summer IS coming. Yes, the streets of New York City are still covered in snow and the temperature hasn’t gone above freezing in a while. However, summer will be here before you know it and we’ll all be bikini-clad hitting the beach. And while you may not want to even imagine baring those legs or showing any skin in this frigid NYC winter, think some warm thoughts and let’s talk about laser hair removal and why you should start treatments now! Yes, right now! And as an extra bonus, you’ll save 20% by booking using code XOXO for our Valentine’s Day Sale.
What is Laser Hair Removal, anyway?
While the name may sound pretty self-explanatory, there’s a lot more to laser hair removal than meets the eye. BeautyFix’s depilatory technique involves using a laser which emits light that is absorbed by the melanin in the hair. This light energy then becomes heat, which damages the follicles (where the hair grows out of) so that new hairs cannot grow back. Watch this handy video where Aesthetic Coordinator Maria talks about the science behind laser hair removal.
Why is Laser Hair Removal better than shaving?
Most methods for getting rid of unwanted hair only cut the follicle, which allows for it to grow back quickly, and often thicker. Unlike other hair removal methods like shaving, waxing or using an epilator, laser hair removal actually kills the hair follicle at the root, rather than cutting it or plucking it out. This means the results are permanent, and you’ll never have to endure another razor bump or feel those pricklies on your legs.
What are the benefits?
So many, babe! First off, this treatment is permanent. That’s right - once complete, the hair will never grow back, as the follicle is damaged. This treatment saves time and money, so say hello to never needing to buy razors or taking an extra 10 minutes to shave every day! It also eliminates pesky razor bumps, nicks, and ingrowns - yuck. Laser hair removal is safe for anywhere you’re growing hair and works on all skin types and tones. Don’t worry about pain, either - most patients report a slight “rubber band snap” sensation.
OK, so why do I need to get it NOW?
Many people know laser hair removal is the permanent option, but don’t realize it’s not just one time under the laser. While many people associate summer and the warm weather with this treatment, there’s a bit of prep involved before you’re bikini-ready. You’ll need about six or more sessions to achieve a completely hair-free look. Over the course of your sessions, you will notice the hair falling out and getting lighter and thinner with each time. After these six treatments, the hair follicle should be damaged enough to prevent any hair from growing back at all. We recommend scheduling these sessions 3-4 weeks apart so that your skin will have enough time to fully recover. If you’re looking to be totally hair-free this summer, you’ll want to start those sessions now so you’re completely smooth and sexy once the hot weather hits! And since you’ll want to keep the treated area(s) out of the sun while you heal, the cold weather will keep you covered up (another good reason not to take this treatment in the summer - you’ll need to limit sun exposure as much as possible.)
If you’re ready for summer mentally but need to catch your body up, book a free consultation now to learn about our HairFix: Laser Hair Removal.
