As the weather heats up so does excitement for summer activities - lounging on the beach in your fab new bikini, sipping cocktails with friends while wearing deliciously silky dresses, and just generally spending more time adventuring outside.
You know what’s not exciting? Turning down a last minute invitation to a private party at The Pool Deck in the city because you forgot to shave ‘down there’ this morning.
Indeed, hair removal is perhaps the worst thing about the warm summer months. You’ve got to think about it, plan for it and (in some cases) spend time actually doing it yourself. It can be painful, messy and a major hassle.
Like most women you’ve probably been shaving for decades with expected results – hair is gone for a day or two then grows back seemingly thicker, then the cycle starts again. And shaving the bikini line and underarms is never all that safe or easy. One slight nick leads to days of irritation.
Waxing is no better for summer-smooth pins. It’s painful (especially the bikini line and under the arms) but it does last a lot longer than shaving and over time the hair does grow back finer.
The big problem is it’s not a permanent solution and still requires regular visits to the salon or struggling with a hot wax kit at home (time that could be better spent watching Orange Is The New Black).
Benefits of Laser Hair Removal
Medical grade GentleLASE is a relatively new form of hair removal, but it’s proven to be efficient and largely permanent solution for smooth summer skin. Sure it takes a few treatment cycles, but it usually results in up to 85% to 99% hair loss in as few as six treatments.
Laser hair removal is the most effective way to get rid of hair in those really noticeable areas of the body for summer, especially the underarm and bikini area.
How Laser Hair Removal Works
GentleLASE uses an intense, targeted laser beam to heat and destroy individual hair follicles. The treatment involves short pulses of laser energy that are drawn directly into the melanin pigment in the fair follicle.
Because only actively growing hair follicles are targeted, several rounds of treatment are needed to reach all the hair during the active growth period. While most people see optimal results within four to six sessions, you might need more or less depending on your hair type and the area being treated.
Not everyone can get laser hair treatments. It doesn’t work well on blonde or red hair because the laser targets the pigment in the hair follicle and lighter hair just has less pigment.
But if you have dark hair in the treatment areas then you are eligible. Laser hair removal is also a lot less painful and expensive than you might think. Most people liken it to the snapping of an elastic band against the skin. And you won’t have to keep going back month-after-month so for some short term outlay you’re getting long-term hair free benefits.
And you don’t have to worry about your hair growing out between treatments (like you do with waxing). Because laser hair removal targets the hair follicle you can continue shaving in between treatments to stay summer smooth, with the knowledge that you can soon permanently ditch the razor.
