| Aesthetics, The Spa
No one wants to deal with mortifying waxing experiences, messy at-home creams or last minute bikini season shaving. When it comes to removing unwanted body hair, laser hair removal is both an effective and long-lasting solution. The SPA at The SHAW Center offers the Lumenis LightSheer Infinity for 75% faster treatments than the average hair reduction session, and it can be used on all skin types. There are a few things you should know before setting on your way to a silky smooth lifestyle.
Avoid the Sun Before Your Treatments
Laser hair removal works best on dark hair and pale skin, so if you’re tan the effectiveness of treatments can be hindered. When your skin is tanned, the laser has to be reduced, which can render it less effective as well. Additionally, you’ll need to keep your recently treated areas out of sunlight, so it’s best to begin these treatments during autumn or winter.
Don’t Expect Instant Results
We wish it only took the one treatment, but good things take time. While our SPA offers the gold standard in laser hair removal with the LightSheer Infinity, we still recommend anywhere from five to six sessions to see drastic results.
You Can’t Target the Whole Body at Once
If someone tells you that you can, you’ve been seriously misinformed. While our SPA is all about helping you to achieve your aesthetic goals, we’re big on safety too. There’s only a certain amount of cosmetic laser light and heat your body can safely absorb each session.
Consistency is Key
Your hair follicles are on their own growth cycle, so those who see the best results will typically go in for treatment every four to six weeks in order to maximize eliminating the most follicles. This time frame also allows the dead hair shafts to fall out on their own.
Our SPA is offering a free laser hair removal package when you buy the first one now through the end of September. Call our SPA at (480)767-1900 to learn more about this special.
