Autumn Is an Ideal Time to Start Laser Hair Removal: Here’s Why

Autumn Is an Ideal Time to Start Laser Hair Removal: Here’s Why

Body air is natural, of course, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s desirable. If you’ve been fighting the hair removal battle for years, it might be time for you to think about laser hair removal. It’s safe, common, and remarkably effective.

At Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center in Gulf Breeze, Florida, Dr. Deborah Viglione and our staff offer numerous cosmetic services because we believe living an optimal life includes feeling great about how you look.

Permanent hair removal may sound like a dream, but you can kiss your shaving routine goodbye with a number of hair removal sessions spaced apart by a few weeks. Here are some things you should know about laser hair removal, including why autumn is an ideal season to start.

How laser hair removal works

Laser hair removal is an innovative approach to permanently preventing hair growth. The laser targets the hair follicle and slightly damages it so that it no longer produces hair. 

Generally, the darker the pigment of the hair and the lighter your skin, the better the laser can zero in on the follicle. However, Dr. Viglione uses a technology called electo-optical synergy (Elos), which works well even on light-colored hair. 

Because your hair follicles go through cycles of growth and rest, and the follicle needs to have hair growing in order for the laser treatment to work, you generally need several treatments spaced weeks apart in order to get optimal results. 

Why the season makes a difference

There are three reasons fall is a good time to start laser hair removal sessions. The first is that after treatment, it’s important to avoid direct sunlight on your skin. In the fall, days become shorter and a bit cooler, so it’s easier to cover up when you’re outdoors.

The second is that you want as much contrast as possible between the color of your hair and the color of your skin when you have laser treatments. If you have a summer tan, the treatments may not work as effectively. 

Finally, because you’re likely to need several treatments, spaced a few weeks apart, if you start in the fall, you’ll be ready in plenty of time for next swimsuit season. Imagine an entire summer of no shaving or waxing! Start laser hair removal this autumn, and you won’t have to imagine it. 

You’re unique

Each person is different. The color of your hair, its density, your skin tone, and other factors are all important when it comes to determining how many treatments you may need and how much time you should wait in between them. Dr. Viglione suggests a schedule and number of treatments based on you. 

Whether you need five sessions or seven to permanently prevent hair growth in a given area, beginning in autumn means you can reveal your smooth, beautiful skin next summer. Schedule your first laser hair removal session now at Living Waters Regenerative Medicine Center.
