You can almost smell it in the air these days -- spring is just around the corner. As the weather gets warmer and nature gradually bounces back, you might feel inspired to give your skin the love and attention it deserves. And if you’ve been meaning to take care of that unwanted hair for some time now, spring offers the perfect opportunity to do so. Here’s why a hair removal treatment could be just what you need this spring.
Spring symbolizes renewal, which is partially why many people invest in various cosmetic dermatology services this time of year -- the earth is refreshing itself, so why not do the same for your skin? You have plenty of options in this regard: chemical peels, facials, laser therapies for pigmentation issues, and so on. Hair removal is among these many cosmetic services, and certainly contributes to that renewed sense of self you’re looking for this spring. By getting rid of your unwanted hair via professional means, you can enter this season with fresh, smooth skin that lets you feel every bit of a warm breeze or gentle rain.
Hair removal isn’t just about feeling great; it’s also about looking great. After a long winter of bundling up and hiding your features, you might be itching to shed those layers. Once the weather allows you to rock some shirts and a tank top or T-shirt, you’ll have the prime opportunity to show some skin. And with a quality hair removal treatment, you can flaunt your hair-free skin all spring-long. Indeed, the best hair removal treatments offer long-lasting results (several months to a year or more with routine treatments).
There are many ways to remove unwanted hair, the most prominent being shaving and waxing. While both of these methods can be effective, neither offers the long-lasting results that other hair removal treatments do. If, for instance, you decide to shave your legs, armpits, and other areas, you’ll find yourself shaving again in a matter of days (not to mention you might damage your skin in the process). All of this effort translates to more time and money spent on maintaining your skin this spring and beyond. Receiving a hair removal treatment by a cosmetic dermatology expert may cost you more in the short-term, but it will negate the time and money you spend on constantly shaving or waxing your skin.
So, are you thinking about hair removal this coming spring? If so, it’s important to know your options. The three most effective hair removal treatments available today are electrolysis, laser hair removal, and removal via prescription creams like eflornithine. Electrolysis permanently eliminates unwanted hair follicles by passing shortwave radio frequencies through them. Laser hair removal also destroys hair follicle, but via laser technology. After 4-6 treatments, patients can see an 80-90% reduction in hair, and results can last anywhere from several months to several years. Finally, prescription creams, when applied twice a day for about a month, can hinder the production of enzymes that facilitate facial hair growth. This option can halt hair growth on the face for up to eight weeks before another round of treatment is needed.
