Any season is a great time to opt for laser hair removal, including the wintertime. Although you may be bundled up this time of year in Indiana, you may still want silky smooth, stubble-free skin. As you know, shaving in the winter easily leads to dry, rashy skin. Waxing involves time and expense, and you may be interested in an alternative. Laser hair removal offers lasting hair reduction. To learn more, please call Indiana Plastic Surgery at 219-500-5766 , or 866-613-2100.

Below, we discuss some of the top benefits of choosing this laser treatment.

Enjoy Smooth, Soft Skin Under Those Layers!

Let’s face it: Sometimes it’s easy to skip shaving knowing that you’ll be completely covered up this winter. Nonetheless, maybe you like your skin to feel smooth and not stubbly. With laser hair removal, your skin will be soft and hair-free every day.

Ditch Razors and Waxing

Imagine never having to do these things. They are chores, they are inconvenient and they may irritate your skin. Shaving can take a lot of extra time in the morning, time that may be precious to you as you try to get out the door. Plus, if you forget to shave, you may find yourself red in the face at work as you realize you are wearing a sleeveless top! It’s similar with waxing: You have to make time to attend these appointments, and sometimes you have to let the hair grow quite a bit before you can get it waxed. Ditch these hassles when you opt for laser treatment.

Reach Optimal Results in Time for Spring and Summer

For most people, 6 laser hair removal sessions are recommended, typically spaced 6 weeks apart. If you schedule your appointments over the winter, your silky skin will be ready to unveil by spring or summertime. Wear warm-weather clothing confidently and comfortably, knowing your skin looks and feels its best without any shaving.

Reduces Hair in Just About Any Area of the Body or Face

Laser hair removal is a versatile procedure. It can be used on almost any area, such as:

  • Upper lip, chin, cheeks and other areas of the face
  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Bikini area
  • Arms
  • Back

Arrange a consultation at our practice to find out if it can be applied to your areas of concern.

Minimal Discomfort and Minimally Invasive

The laser device works by sending pulses of laser energy below the skin. It looks like pulses of light from the outside. The process itself is not typically described as painful, and most people say discomfort is minimal. It may feel like a gentle pinch or snap against the skin when the pulse is emitted. The procedure itself can be completed relatively quickly, depending on the number and size of treatment areas. Usually a single treatment area requires only minutes per session.

Targets Dark, Coarse Hairs and Not the Skin

Although the laser device is applied to the surface of the skin, the energy is attracted into the pigment of the hair, stopping hair growth in the follicle. The follicle and hairs are treated while surrounding skin and tissue is untouched.
