Start Laser Hair Removal Now and Be Pool Ready by Summer

Unwanted body hair affects people of all demographics, including both men and women and every skin color. Gentle laser hair removal has proven to be one of the most effective, safe, and cost-effective ways to combat unwanted hair and eliminate the need to constantly shave or wax.

At Omni-Med Family Care in Florham, New Jersey, Dr. Roger DiRuggiero and his exceptional team offer laser hair removal treatments using the GentleLASE system. This method provides optimal results and can give you the silky smooth skin you long for. 

Why choose laser hair removal?

Women spend almost 60 days and nights over the course of their lifetime doing some form of hair removal on various parts of their bodies. If you’d like to get that time back, laser hair removal could be perfect for you. Just three sessions of Gentle Hair Removal laser treatment can get rid of as much as 80% of unwanted hair — permanently. 

Laser hair removal is suitable for many areas of your body, including your:

Laser hair removal is fast and almost painless. Many people describe the sensation of the laser as similar to the feeling of a rubber band being snapped lightly against your skin.  

How laser hair removal works

The laser used in the treatment sends a fast pulse of light energy that targets the pigment in your hair and runs down the hair into the follicle. The energy slightly damages the follicle, impairing its ability to grow hair. After each laser hair removal appointment, your hair grows back lighter, thinner, and finer, until it eventually stops growing completely. 

Your hair grows in stages, and the laser treatment works optimally when your hair is in its growing stage. Since each hair is in the active stage at different times, multiple treatments spaced about a month apart deliver optimal results. Typically laser treatment patients will see results in three treatments, but up to six might be required. 

Why winter is the best time for laser hair removal treatments

You’ll need to be at least six weeks post-tan, and it should have been six weeks since other hair removal treatments like waxing or depilatory creams have been used, to safely get laser hair removal. After your first treatment, you’ll probably need two more sessions — a month apart — then a six-week complete recovery period before you expose yourself to direct sunlight. 

By starting right now, while it’s winter, you can complete your entire series of sessions, recover, and be ready for sun and sand before summer hits. Ready to get started on your beach body?
