When is the prime time to do laser hair removal and laser vein treatment?
Heartland Plastic and Hand Surgery offers laser hair removal procedures to men and women living in Sikeston, Farmington and other nearby communities.
Both laser hair removal and laser vein treatment work best with a very pale skin background, a dark, coarse hair follicle or small, bright red, telangiectatic spider vein appearance. The contrast between the structure hair or vein and the underlying or base skin is very important to maximize the result from the laser treatment. Usually, several series of treatments are needed anywhere from one month to two months apart. Although laser treatments can be done year round, when patients have a dark tan the results are less successful and sometimes treatments have to be postponed if the underlying skin is quite dark. My general recommendations to patients would be to begin laser treatments in the late fall, after the pools have closed down and they are back wearing long pants or long sleeved shirts. Again, a series of treatments everyone to two months is needed. With this time frame, oftentimes by the time spring comes around, they have completed their treatment sessions. At the time of the consultation we will discuss the number of treatments that are needed, as well as the interval between the treatments with each patient.Back to Blog home
