When Is the Best Time for Laser Hair Removal?

Winter is the ideal time to consider laser hair removal (LHR). Because tanned skin can develop undesired pigmentation after the procedure, it's wiser to undergo LHR during the months when sun exposure is somewhat limited. Here are a few frequently asked questions about LHR:

What areas of the body can benefit from the procedure?

We are often asked about unwanted hair on the legs, under the arms and at the bikini areas, but facial hair is also a source of cosmetic concern.

How do I know if I'm a good candidate for LHR?

People with dark hair and light skin find the best results with LHR. Blond, red and gray hairs do not respond very well and we would advise against using the laser with these hair colors.

How many treatments does it require?

Hair grows in cycles, and not all hair follicles are on the same cycle, so a series of five or six sessions is ideal in permanently reducing the hair growth and giving the best cosmetic result.
