Why Winter is the Best Time to Begin Laser Hair Removal Treatments

The winter months bring colder weather, warmer clothes, comfort foods, and family get-togethers. 

You start planning big family meals and picking out the perfect gifts. And why not get a gift for yourself? This is the perfect time for laser hair removal treatments. Laser hair removal is a safe, effective way to get rid of unwanted hair and look your best.

If you live near Yuma or Tucson, Arizona, you can rely on the experienced staff at Peach Skin and Laser and their state-of-the-art treatment methods.

The advantage of a winter laser hair removal treatment

Unlike the spring and summer months, you won’t be spending extensive time out in the heat during the winter. This means that you will have a lot less damage to the skin to worry about before and after treatment, as treated skin can be more sensitive to sunlight in most laser treatments. 

You will also be spending more time indoors overall, which will give your body the proper time to heal between treatments. And since multiple treatments are common for permanent hair removal, you can get this done in the winter months so your skin is in great shape for fun in the sun.

Understanding laser hair removal

Laser hair removal uses a concentrated beam of light that damages the follicles that produce hair on the skin. The light energy from the laser inhibits future hair growth, which delays hair from returning for longer periods of time than many other methods. 

You will likely experience mild discomfort (like a warm pinprick) during the procedure, but once it is finished, you can get on with your day. You can expect some redness and swelling, but it can be managed with ice, or you may be prescribed a  cream or other medication to relieve discomfort.

Using diode lasers

The professionals here at Peach Skin & Laser use a clinically tested diode laser called the Lumenis® LightSheer® laser. The diode laser is a newer laser treatment that offers some perks that other treatments do not. 

Many laser treatments use one or multiple wavelengths of concentrated light to penetrate the skin and remove hair. The Lumenis LightSheer diode laser uses a combination of shorter and longer wavelengths of light, which allows for deeper penetration into the hair follicles and effectively absorbs melanin in the skin. 

This laser reduces skin damage and discoloration and works on many shades of skin. A diode laser treatment will also allow you to remove more hair at once, as it can cover larger areas of hair than other laser treatments.

So, if you’re looking for an effective way to get rid of unwanted hair over the winter to be ready for the warm weather to come, make an appointment with Peach Skin and Laser today to get on the path to beautiful skin.
