You may not be thinking about that unwanted body hair now, when you can cover it up with your cool weather clothing. However, fall can be the perfect time to schedule your laser hair removal treatments. At Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics, we have plenty of good reasons for you to get started on your hair removal treatments today.

No Tans

At Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics, we use the LightSheer Diode for our hair removal treatments. This device works well on a variety of skin tones, but it is not recommended for tanned skin. Not only can that summer bronze impact the effectiveness of the hair removal, it may also result in damage to the skin. Most Minnesotans are tan-free by this time of year, making this a safe and effective time to pursue laser hair removal.

Limited UV Exposure

In addition to avoiding UV rays prior to treatment, it is a good idea to protect skin from the sun after your procedure. UV rays can affect the result of your treatment and damage vulnerable skin – in some cases, permanently. With cooler temperatures now, it is easy to keep those treatment areas under wraps, where they can heal fully without the risk of complications from sun exposure. In addition, there is less sun exposure to worry about during the fall and winter months, which means even if you have hair removal on an exposed area like the face, you are less likely to experience any type of complication.

Hiding the Evidence

Laser hair removal is a relatively painless procedure that involves few, if any, side effects. However, some patients do experience a bit of redness or swelling around the treatment sites, which can persist for a few days. By scheduling your treatments now, you can cover up those telltale signs of a cosmetic treatment under your cool weather clothing, so no one knows you are undergoing laser hair removal this season.

Time for Treatment Sessions

Laser hair removal treatments target hair that is in the anagen or growth phase of the hair growing cycle. Not all hair is in this phase at the same time, which means not all of your hair follicles will be addressed during every treatment session. You will need to undergo a series of laser hair removal sessions to achieve your full results, which generally takes a number of weeks to a number of months. Starting your treatments now will ensure you are ready to don those skin-baring summer fashions when the time is right.

A Hair-Free Summer

Summer may be the last thing on your mind right now as you are enjoying the fall foliage and stocking up on supplies for a snowy winter. However, that warm weather will return before you know it. Wouldn’t it be lovely to greet that new season completely smooth and hair-free? If you begin your treatments during the fall, you can be relatively certain you will be anxious to get those shorts out of storage and your hairless legs out of hiding.

At Sapphire Advanced Aesthetics, we offer one of the top devices for hair removal on the market today. This procedure is highly effective and involves no anesthesia, incisions or downtime. If you are ready to say goodbye to unwanted body or facial hair, contact Sapphire Advanced Aesthetic today at 952-460-1970.
