Now is the best time of the year for Laser Hair Removal

Nataliya, Skin Care Therapist at Spa Utopia North Vancouver, talks about Laser Hair Removal and why now is the best time of the year to begin treatment.

Winter is coming, and at Spa Utopia, we know that now is the perfect time to prepare for next summer.

Have you ever thought about getting rid of unwanted hair once and for all? Well, now is the time to begin treatment, while the sun is farther south and less intense. Because laser is light, it "sees" colour on and inside your skin, hair, sun damage (brown spots), or redness (rosacea). During the winter months our skin becomes lighter with less exposure to the sun so the laser is better able to 'see' where the hair is. So, you'll feel less heat and achieve faster results at this optimum time of the year. Treatments are scheduled 8 weeks apart and for best results we recommend 5 – 6 sessions.

Our diode laser and can effectively work on all skin colours. Laser needs to be able to see the hair colour so light blonde or grey hair may be difficult to treat. When the colour of the hair is darker than the skin the laser goes directly to each hair follicle and damages it. This damage is enough to retard future growth and results can vary, lasting from months to years.

During treatment you'll feel pulses of light (30 ms each) – we describe the feeling like an elastic band lightly snapping. Some medications may increase sensitivity.
