Although it’s been an exceptionally mild winter here in the UK, the chances are that you haven’t really started thinking about your summer beauty regime yet, unless you’re counting down the days to a holiday in sunnier climes.
If you would like your legs – or any other part of your body – to stay hair-free and silky smooth for the summer, then you may be considering laser hair removal, which is currently the most effective way to reduce your hair growth over long intervals without the need for plucking, waxing, threading or shaving.
If that’s the case, winter is the time to take action!
Most people find that they need six initial laser hair removal treatments, each approximately four to six weeks apart, to see the best hair reduction. This means that, if you book to begin your laser hair removal sessions now, your treatment should be nearing completion in mid-July.
Factors such as your skin colour, the treatment area, your genes, and hormones will all affect your hair regrowth. For example, facial hairs on women may need more sessions, while your leg hair may need fewer sessions. If your hair is very dark in contrast to your skin, this may also speed up how quickly you can see the results.
One of the many benefits of laser hair removal is that it doesn’t cause ingrown hairs or shaving bumps that can be cause discomfort and be prone to infections. It can also help to improve the overall texture of your skin, so that it looks and feels summer ready.
To find out how much hair reduction you can expect between now and the summer months, and how many sessions you will need – as well as the time between them – we’d recommend that you speak to a skilled laser hair removal practitioner as soon as possible, especially if summer is your deadline.
