While all the Northern birds are flying South this winter, all the beauties in Charlotte are flocking to Criswell & Criswell Plastic Surgery for a certain beauty treatment. See, they are all in on a secret. They know that the wintertime, when we are least likely to bare our skin, is actually an ideal time for laser hair reduction treatments. Sounds ironic, doesn’t it? But it actually makes perfect sense. Here’s why.
Let’s start with technology. Laser hair removal works by targeting energy into the dark pigment of your hair follicles. The darker your skin is with melanin, the harder it is for the laser to detect the pigment in your roots. Even worse, sun tanning can also increase the possibility of side effects you definitely want to avoid, such as skin lightening.
Time is another factor. To achieve the smooth, carefree skin you crave, it can take months of treatment. Often, we see optimal results after a series of five treatments spaced about four weeks apart. So do the math: To be bikini-ready by June, you should start hair removal treatments by January.
Instead of hibernating, get productive this winter by scheduling your laser hair removal treatments in our Ballanytne office! Call today to schedule your consultation at 704.424.5050.
