Hair Removal for Summer (Men & Women)

Skin Deep – April 2012

Welcome to ‘Skin Deep’ – This month’s feature looks at our ‘Hair Removal for Summer’.
Any questions, just ask Dr. Angie Winnington-Sharp or 01925 263660 & 07967 481594.  Next month – Combating Ageing.

Although the weather is still ‘changeable’ at best during spring, it is definitely the ideal time of year to start laser hair removal. We’re no longer in the deepest, darkest winter months, our wardrobes are changing and summer is (hopefully) not too far away. Alternatively, if you are planning a summer break somewhere exotic, now is the time to begin your course of hair removal. This is because any tan that you gain whilst away will delay further laser treatments on your return as the pigment in the tan is different to your normal skin tone, and can be detrimental to your normal treatment settings.
Providing you find a clinic that has the appropriate type of laser-based device a wide variety of hair colours and skin types can be treated, along with sufferers of PCOS (polycystic ovary syndrome) or people with other hormonal imbalances. Hair removal is also becoming increasingly popular amongst male clients and sports enthusiasts as well as the more established female client base.
So, use this period of variable weather to your advantage, the sun has temporarily deserted us, so a few weeks of cooler weather are an ideal prompt to start work on a fabulous bikini line, unwanted facial hair, underarms, legs, backs, shoulders and brows to name just a few. Whether you are looking for a great hair-free appearance or maximising your aerodynamics for speed and performance, laser hair removal could be the answer for you and your inner confidence!
