While prepping for summer in the middle of winter may seem like overkill, it’s an important part of the process if you plan to have laser hair removal treatments.

Emmanouil Karampahtsis, NMD, offers comprehensive laser hair removal services that allow you to finally ditch the messy waxes and razor burns while still enjoying baby-smooth skin.

To ensure you get the results you want in time for lazy days at the beach, you need to start scheduling your laser treatments in advance.

How laser hair removal works

Laser hair removal is an effective treatment that uses laser technology specially designed to target the pigment in your hair follicles. Delivering laser energy into the follicles beneath the surface of your skin heats the hair follicle and ultimately destroys its structure.

With the hair follicle destroyed, it can no longer produce new hair growth, eliminating the need to shave and wax to remove unwanted body hair.

Versatility of laser hair treatments

Dr. Karampahtsis uses the latest laser technologies to treat unwanted hair on many areas of the body. The treatment is safe and highly effective for all skin types and suitable for both men and women.

Following a customized treatment plan, Dr. Karampahtsis can address unwanted hair in both small and large areas of the body, including:

  • Legs
  • Back
  • Arms
  • Hands
  • Chest
  • Abdomen
  • Underarms

While powerful enough to treat hair all over the body, the laser hair removal systems can also address more delicate areas, like the bikini line, ears, and sides of the face. Men can even receive laser hair removal services to reduce beard hair growth.

Why starting laser hair removal treatments early matters

While it’s always good to stay on top of grooming and personal hygiene, when you schedule your laser hair treatments also matters.

Laser technology can only treat hair that’s in the active growth phase. Since body hair grows in different cycles, you’ll need multiple laser sessions to address follicles previously inactive during your other laser sessions.

It takes time to fully address all hair follicles and achieve the results you want by the time beach season rolls around. Dr. Karampahtsis and his team customize your treatment plan based on a variety of factors including:

  • Skin type
  • Hair color
  • Coarseness of hair
  • Size of the treatment area

Typically, 4-6 treatments are needed to achieve optimal results but your specific treatment plan outlines exactly what to expect.

Scheduling your laser hair removal sessions during the winter also helps protect the health of your skin. After each laser treatment, your skin becomes more sensitive as it heals. Exposing treated skin to the sun can increase your risk for sunburns and other skin damage.

By undergoing laser treatments during the winter, you have time to moisturize and care for your skin and ensure it’s fully healed before spending long days at the beach. Wintertime laser hair removal treatments allow you to enjoy your time in the summer sun without having to limit outdoor time.
