What exactly is laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal uses innovative laser technology and its energy to target active hair follicles with enough heat to damage their ability to grow hair. The laser energy is tuned to a temperature that addresses the follicle but leaves surrounding skin healthy.

Is laser hair removal safe?  

At Sublime Aesthetics, we use the Vectus® laser platform to deliver consistent and uniform results over a wider area than most aesthetic lasers. Better yet, safety mechanisms built into the system make it appropriate for all skin types.

Because of their power, lasers in unskilled hands can certainly be worrisome. Our practitioners undergo extensive training to ensure their knowledge of the system and their ability to remove hair in targeted areas without damaging surrounding tissue.

Why is winter a good season for laser hair removal?

Any time is a good time to start laser hair removal treatments, but winter offers a few advantages. Because your hair grows in cycles with some follicles in the resting phase and others in the active growth phase at any given time, it’s impossible to target all unwanted hair with one treatment.

To work around your hair’s growth pattern, treatments are spaced about six weeks apart. Scheduling your sessions when snow and cold have you reaching for cozy sweaters and warm leggings means you can time the grand reveal of your new hair-free skin to coincide with spring and summertime clothing.  

It’s also important to note that it takes time for a hair to die and the follicle to cease its function. Thus, with laser hair removal, you’ll notice a gradual shedding of your unwanted hair over several weeks. Not always the best look for warm weather fashions.

And despite its safety and efficacy in the right practitioner’s hands, laser hair removal does result in a couple of days of mild skin sensitivity in the treated area that doesn’t interact well with the sun. Most individuals find it easier to avoid the sun in January or February rather than June.
