The Best Time to Start Laser Hair Removal is Winter

Posted on January 11, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

Some people enjoy the winter season, while others shy away from the bone-chilling winds and harsh weather that comes with it. The cold air also ushers in a host of skin conditions such as dry skin, and it can also exacerbate a razor burn. Thus, traditional forms of hair removal such as shaving become more of a chore than ever during wintry conditions. One way to minimize the chance of skin irritation and keep your legs looking smooth and beautiful is by starting a series of laser hair removal treatments.

 

Understandably, showing off your legs might not be a top priority for you in cold weather, but the fall and winter months are actually the best time of the year to start these treatments. Professional grade laser hair removal is very powerful and effective method of hair removal, but it can also make your skin more sensitive to the sun. Ideally, you should have at least two weeks of minimal sun exposure before each session. Thus, even if winter isn’t one of your favorite seasons, you can still take advantage of this period of reduced sunshine to begin your laser hair removal treatments.

 

Hair on the legs tends to be coarser than other areas of the body, and it typically takes six to eight treatments to permanently reduce the unwanted hair. Laser hair removal takes time to work, and we recommend spacing treatments four to six weeks apart to achieve maximum results. Patients generally experience minimal discomfort during the procedure, but a numbing agent can be applied before the treatment to further enhance your comfort. During each session, your aesthetic technician will focus a gentle beam of high-intensity light on the unwanted hair follicles. Laser hair removal works best when the difference between your skin and hair color is easily distinguishable. Thus, if your skin is tanned you’re likely to get suboptimal results and it may also increase your chance of side effects with certain types of lasers. You can reduce this risk by scheduling your laser hair removal sessions during the least sunny months.

3 Skincare Resolutions For 2018

Posted on January 4, 2018 by Ella Fedonenko

2018 is finally here, and we are looking for ways to look our best in the New Year. If skincare is one area you hope to improve upon, we can help turn your resolutions into a reality. Below are three beauty resolutions you should consider adding to your list, because they can have a big impact on your complexion and overall skin’s health.

 

  1. Apply Sunscreen Regularly

One of the easiest ways to prevent fine lines and wrinkles is to start incorporating sunscreen into your daily routine. Sunscreen should be applied regularly during daylight hours because the active ingredients lose their efficacy approximately two hours after the application. We recommend trying out SkinMedica’s line of Total Defense and Repair sunscreens because their innovative formulas are also highly effective at rejuvenating the skin.

 

  1. Exfoliate

One of the best ways to achieve a smoother and more refreshed appearance is through regular exfoliation.

For your homecare routine, we recommend SkinMedica’s AHA/BHA Cream because it offers gentle exfoliation with naturally derived alpha-hydroxy acids. More powerful exfoliation methods should be left to the experts who can perform medical grade chemical peels. This effective form of exfoliation can treat sun damage, acne scars, and various signs of aging.

 

  1. Treat and Prevent Premature Aging

The New Year might remind us that we are getting older, but with the right products, treatments, and lifestyle choices, we can dramatically slow down the aging process. If you are interested in achieving a more youthful complexion, there are a number of minimally invasive cosmetic enhancements to try that can rejuvenate and revitalize your skin. For instance, fillers and Botox can diminish the prominence of fine lines and wrinkles. Botox, in particular, is both a restorative and preventative treatment when it comes to treating the signs of aging.
