As we head into the Nelson autumn and winter, we know it’s tempting to delay your regular hair removal treatments. We understand that… Waxing and laser hair removal are not the most pleasurable treatments. And you were going to be wearing jeans and trousers all winter anyway! But, at Woman, we think there are some good reasons to continue with your hair removal maintenance in winter. Read on to discover more.
Hair Removal Treatments in Autumn and Winter:
Your body hair naturally grows in three phases. To get the best removal results, you need to catch the hair in the anagen (initial) growth phase every time. So establishing a good wax routine is essential.
With consistent waxing throughout winter, you’ll eventually find that we’re removing all the hairs in the first phase of growth every four weeks. So, when spring comes around again, you’ll find regrowth is finer and slower.
It’s easy to get caught out in winter… You’ve had your legs covered for so long you forget there’s a bit of fuzz going on below the knee… Then you get asked to an event and realise you need to slip a skirt and sheer tights on! If that’s the case, please don’t reach for the razor; call us instead to book a wax. Shaving will leave your leg hairs uneven, meaning that they will not grow simultaneously, making it more difficult to achieve a smooth finish that lasts.
IPL in Icy Months:
We can carry out IPL at any time of year. But, the winter months are ideal to begin IPL hair removal treatment. This is because before (and after) any IPL treatment, we’ll ask you to avoid a few things. These include sun exposure, fake tan and chlorinated swimming pools. All things you’re more likely to come into contact with over the summer months.
IPL is a fabulous hair removal solution to prepare you for next spring. We offer a complimentary consultation and patch test. Prices start at $75 per treatment. A series of treatments (every 4 to 8 weeks) is required, depending on the individual. But we’ll tailor a treatment schedule for you at your free consultation.
