As they say, ‘timing is everything. And this is never truer than when it comes to an often life-changing treatment such as laser hair removal.
There are many drivers for clients to come to our St Albans laser hair removal clinic, besides the obvious… unwanted, or excess hair removal. However, it normally boils down to one, or both, of the below reasons for wanting laser hair removal:
1/ an event, such as a wedding, and they want their skin to look its best. Bye chin hairs, be gone underarm hair!
2/ they’ve simply had enough of frequent and sometimes irritating, or painful, hair removal methods that don’t offer results with longevity.
Do you fall into one of those categories? I know I did. For some of us, it’s both!
Before I had laser hair removal treatment, I would be conscious that my makeup would cling to the little hairs above my top lip and make my ‘moustache’ look worse. I would also frequently be dealing with in-grown hairs on my bikini line which, to add insult to injury, would leave marks; so even if I had taken the time to shave and was hair free, the skin around my bikini line would often be bumpy with the ingrown hairs and the skin was peppered with little brown marks where the inflammation had been.
If this is something you can relate to, there’s no pressing time limit for you to go to a laser skin clinic and have treatment. You can start your laser-hair-removal-liberation whenever you decide you’ve had enough of frequent hair removal which has no long-term impact.
If you have an event that you want to improve your excess hair in time for then I would strongly suggest that you don’t delay starting treatment. At our clinic for laser hair removal st Albans, the average person has a treatment once a month. In general, clients start to notice some changes by the third treatment, for example, hair is less thick; patchiness; needing to remove the hair at homeless frequently between laser hair removal treatments. Some people may see improvements sooner and for some, it may take longer-we’re talking about the human body and as we are all unique, as can our treatment experience be.
As a very general guide, give yourself 6 to 8 months to complete your course of treatments (for reference, our laser hair removal St Albans clinic offers courses of 8 treatments). Hair that may have an underlying reason for its growth, such as female facial hair and somebody hair -especially in those of us with PCOS- may need additional/maintenance treatments.
The key really is giving yourself more than enough time to see your laser hair removal results. There’s enough pressure with a big event, without adding your hair removal to it!
