If you have been considering laser hair removal now is a great time to get started. Why? Timing plays a key role in laser for two reasons:

Start now and be hair free by Summer

Unlike waxing or threading, laser hair removal requires more time in between treatments. Depending on the area your defuzzing you might need to wait 4-8 weeks until your next session. So, if you want your legs to be hair free for summer you should start in the colder months of the year.

Laser treatments and sun exposure don’t mix very well. If your someone who loves soaking up the sun you want laser- like today! When you are doing laser we require that you have NOT been in the sun two weeks before treatment and two weeks after. This can be a scheduling burden our busy members prefer to avoid.

Starting laser now will ensure Dolphin smooth skin by summer. And eliminate the stress and hassle of timing laser sessions safely between sunning sessions. But, before you jump on a spa table and begin lasering do your homework. Make sure the spa you chose has experience and state-of-the-art technology.

Doing your homework will ensure safe and effective treatments. Here’s what to look for:

The type of laser is really important. Depending on your skin type and hue you want treatment with an ALEX laser or a YAG laser. These are the industry gold standards for laser hair removal. Never get laser hair removal with IPL. IPL is not a laser and It doesn’t work. There are also Diode laser and Ruby. These technologies while effective are a bit outdated and they can only treat lighter skin types. At skin Bar NYC we use the Cynosure Apogee Elite +.

When laser was first being performed early pioneers to laser hair removal needed to be numbed with prescription strength numbing cream. It was messy and a big hassle. Today’s lasers use advanced methods to reduce the ouch factor. Our Cynosure uses a blower that pushes cold air at -30 degrees to cool the area and prep for treatment eliminating the mess and hassle of numbing creams. Other lasers have a cold tip that touches the skin and cools it down with each laser pulse. We like the fact that our technology never touches the skin and means a more sanitary treatment.

Laser hair removal is an art. Identifying where the hair is in it’s growth cycle and treating it correctly is not just a matter of punching a few buttons and lasering away. The nuances of laser hair removal are immense and require someone with experience to ensure the best outcome.
