One thing no one enjoys having to endure during the Summer months is making the time to commit to a shaving schedule… or dealing with messy chemical-filled hair removal creams or burdensome waxing appointments…
Preparation for that hot, care-free and adventurous summer is really the surest way of experiencing it…and laser hair removal treatments with the gold standard Candela GentleMax Pro just happen to be best suited for the Winter months. This is because of the following key reasons:
- Winter makes it effortless to avoid sun exposure (no kidding eh Canada?!): It’s common knowledge that when compared to our hot summer months, avoiding sun exposure in the winter is a piece of cake. Excessive sun exposure can have an adverse effect of damaging laser treated skin, which can result in the formation of blisters and/or burns (ouch). Hence, our after-care instructions for our laser hair removal treatment sessions includes avoiding sun exposure on treated areas for a window of two to four weeks post-treatment. The winter time makes this recovery step a much easier process versus the summer time
- Winter is the time to layer up and live in fleece i.e protecting the laser treated area from unnecessary exposure: This is related to #1. Covering up post-treatment protects the laser treated area from unnecessary sun exposure.
- Winter is the ideal time to begin preparing for your best Summer skin: At LMC – Laser Medical Clinic, we use the Candela GentleMax Pro Laser, which is a gold standard laser for permanent hair reduction. The Candela GentleMax Pro works on all skin types and additional hair removal sessions are advised to be conducted four to six weeks apart after the first treatment. Meaning, if you sign up for laser hair removal with us today, there are still several months where you can undergo a series of easy laser hair removal treatments before revealing the amazing results at the start of summer: smooth legs, being bikini body ready forever and best of all, ditching the shaving schedule!!! Ingrowns? Razor bumps? You don’t know them
