Start Laser Hair Removal Now and Be Beach-Ready by Summer

An excellent way to remove unwanted body hair without the hassle and discomfort of waxing and shaving, laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to ensure a smooth body all over. 

At the office of Allen Sapadin, MD, in Hackensack, New Jersey, we’re dedicated to covering both your health care and cosmetic needs. That’s why we’re proud to offer laser hair removal treatments, and why we’ve compiled this helpful guide to why you should get started on treatments now!

How laser hair removal works

At our office, we use the Cynosure® Apogee+™ system to remove unwanted hair safely and effectively. This advanced hair removal system works by destroying melanin inside your follicles, effectively preventing them from growing again.

The treatment uses an applicator wand to deliver laser and chilled air technology to ensure that treatments aren’t uncomfortable or overheated. Sessions typically don’t last more than 60 minutes. 

The laser is effective on all skin types and pigments. It works by eliminating your hair follicles during active growth, so that they break down and are destroyed permanently over time. The system is safe as well: It doesn’t harm your skin. 

The treatment is great for all areas of your body, including your:

And that’s not all. Laser hair removal is noninvasive and involves no down time. You can even schedule your sessions during your lunch break. 

Why getting laser treatments early is important 

When you get laser hair removal treatments, you need to allow for time between treatments. We usually space treatments a week to several weeks apart. And considering that most people need at least six treatments on a single area, you can see why it’s important to start early, so that you’re totally smooth come summer. 

Another reason to start early is that laser treatments can leave your skin sensitive to direct sunlight, which is why we recommend that you stay out of the sun as much as possible during your treatment. And be sure to use sunscreen when you can’t avoid being outside. For that reason, it’s ideal to have your treatments now, during the winter months, when the days are shorter. 

Get smooth skin today

Laser hair removal provides long-lasting results. You don’t have to fuss with a razor or wax anymore. Imagine just slipping on your bathing suit and heading to the beach whenever you feel like it. With laser hair removal treatments, you can do just that. 

If smooth skin is important for your summer plans, call us or schedule an appointment right on our website today.
