Summer is Near – Get Lovely Legs for Swimsuit Season

Beautiful woman's legs on the beach

It’s springtime in New Jersey. Temperatures are beginning to rise and summer will be here before you know it. Make sure your gorgeous gams are ready for days spent poolside or at the shore with laser hair removal by Metropolitan Dermatology. Here are a few tips to help you prepare.

Choose doctor who is board certified in a specialty such as dermatology or cosmetic surgery and has experience with laser hair removal. If a physician’s assistant or licensed nurse will perform the procedure, make sure a doctor supervises and is available on-site throughout the treatment.

Before scheduling your procedure, schedule a consultation with your doctor or aesthetician to go over all pertinent details, including your medical history and all risks, benefits, costs and expectations.

In the six weeks to two months prior to your procedure, stay out of the sun. This helps to reduce the risk of side effects including inadvertent skin lightening. If you have a tan already, wait until it fades before making your appointment. During this time, also avoid plucking, waxing or electrolysis – all of which can disturb the hair follicle and interfere with laser hair removal.

The day before your procedure, shave with a new, clean razor. This will help allow the laser to better target the hair follicles and ensure that there is no lingering bacteria that could cause contact dermatitis (a delayed allergic reaction) after your laser treatment. Also, avoid caffeine for 24 hours to help you feel more relaxed and to minimize pain.
