Shaving and waxing can be so tiresome. It seems like every few days you’re seeing new hairs pop back up. Thankfully, there’s a way to greatly reduce how much time and energy you spend on this unwanted hair. If you live in the Thousand Oaks area, we would be happy to meet with you to answer all the questions you have about laser hair removal.
One of the first things that our clients should understand is that it is going to take some time for long-lasting hair reduction with this treatment. You will likely need to visit our office about one time per month for at least five or six months. This is necessary because the laser is going to treat hairs that are going through an active growth phase. Since the hair on your body goes through different growth cycles, you will get the best results by coming in every four to six weeks for at least five or six treatments.
Something that many people are happy to learn is that they can shave before and in between their laser hair removal sessions. Some people think that laser hair removal sessions are similar to waxing sessions. When you have hair on your body removed with wax, it has to grow out to a certain length in order to be effective. This is not true with laser hair removal. In fact, it is actually beneficial for individuals to shave in the days before their treatments. The idea behind this treatment is to get the laser energy to affect the hair follicle, so you do not need to have long hair in order to qualify as a candidate for this treatment.
This means that you can have laser hair removal performed at any time of the year. You could still wear shorts during the summer since you can shave in between treatment sessions. However, it is important for you to know that you have to avoid extended exposure to the sun. This is one of the reasons why many people opt to start to their laser hair removal treatments during the autumn months. During this time of year, they do not have as much sun exposure. Also, it is likely that all of their treatment sessions will be over by the time spring comes and they want to wear shorts and swimsuits.
We have seen our clients walk away with great results. In fact, many of them are able to say goodbye to their razors thanks to laser hair removal. If you are tired of the frustration that comes with shaving, we invite you to contact us today the Pierre Skin Care Institute in Thousand Oaks and learn more about this treatment.
