Unless you’re a cast member in a Planet of the Apes sequel, you likely don’t want to head into the summer months with a body covered in hair. Whether you hate shaving, have a hard time keeping up with it, or simply forget to hit those unmentionable areas before you hit the pool— can you say bikini and underarms?– It’s time for you to consider getting laser hair removal done from Sterling Aesthetics. Before you get any procedure done, however, it’s important to know just what you can expect. This article will debunk three common myths surrounding laser hair removal to help you jump into summer feeling smoother, hair-free, and more informed. Read on to learn more.
Myth 1: The Darker the Complexion, The Less Likely It Is to Work
If you have heard that if you have a dark complexion that laser hair removal won’t work on you, that’s simply false. In fact, as long as you have dark colored hair, it will be easily absorbed by the laser— leaving you with smoother skin in the process. If you have blonde, gray, or light hair, it may be hard— if not impossible— for us to fully target the follicles.
Myth 2: One and Done
In a perfect world, you would be able to come into Sterling Aesthetics, sit in our chair, get one laser hair removal session done and then be golden for the rest of forever. However, laser hair removal isn’t a one and done treatment. Depending on the area of the body being targeted and the type of hair you have, you can count on having to undergo around 3-5 treatments (if not more) until you get that flawless, hair free body that you’ve always wanted.
Myth 3: It’s Just For Females
Even though a lot of our treatments at Sterling Aesthetics are primarily popular among females, they are just as accessible to men as well. If you are a male who has unwanted body hair, come into our office for a consultation, and we can get you taken care of.
Having unwanted body hair can be beyond annoying— especially when beach days are just around the corner. Luckily with the help of Sterling Aesthetics, you can get rid of your body hair once and for all. To learn more about this and other treatments, contact our Sterling Aesthetics office today!
