When Is the Best Time to Get Laser Hair Removal?

Unwanted hair can be a chore to remove, particularly in the warmer months when you want to wear shorts, tank tops, and swimsuits on a regular basis. Laser hair removal can make your routine faster, easier, and more comfortable; however, waiting until summer for treatment is not recommended. The reason for this is because many lasers should not be used on tanned skin. In other words, the perfect time for laser hair removal is right now.

At our practice, Dr. Shehla Ebrahim and our laser technicians offer three state-of-the-art hair removal options:

Soprano ICE

An innovative and advanced technology, the Soprano ICE system can remove hair from virtually any area of the body with greater comfort than ever before, and it also works on all skin types.

Cutera CoolGlide®

CoolGlide can also work on all skin types. In certain cases, it can even work on tanned skin. If you flew south for the winter, this treatment may still be an option for you.

Sciton® Forever Bare BBL™

BBL stands for broadband light, and it works a little differently from a laser. Very gentle and efficient, Forever Bare BBL is another highly recommended option for the ideal patient.

There are many subtle differences that can make one technique more appropriate than another for your individual needs and goals. During your initial consultation, we will discuss your concerns, evaluate your skin type and treatment area, and develop a customized treatment plan based on your desired outcome.

Call us today to schedule your initial appointment and take the first step toward summer.
