Why fall is the best time to start laser hair removal

Between boots, apple-picking, and pumpkin spice everything, fall is the best. If you are considering throwing away your razor for hibernation season and growing a nice furry coat on your legs, think again. You might be bulking up on clothing, but fall is the best time to start laser hair removal.

Starting Now Means You'll Be Ready For Swimsuit Season

If you start now, you will have 9-10 months of treatments done by the time you dust off your trusty bikini for the summer. You might not be completely hair-free, but you'll be over halfway and have awesome results to show for it. Don't start thinking about swimsuit season in May; start now so you can feel confident and smooth next summer. 

Sunny Days Are A Thing Of The Past

Whether you are mourning the passing of summer or are itching to break out your stash of trendy scarves, you can celebrate your season-long hiatus from the sun. Sun exposure and laser hair removal don't mix well, so you can spend the fall and winter getting laser hair removal treatments without constantly worrying about accidentally getting tan or burned. 

Winter Clothes Hide Hair Growth

Once you start laser hair removal, your hair grows back in patchier. If these patches of hair bother you during the laser hair removal process, you can easily hide it behind cute sweaters and long pants.

No Hair Zone - Laser Hair Removal for Athletes

Fall sports season has arrived! As athletes begin training, they are busier than ever. From practices to games, sports are time consuming. For sports such as swimming, dancing, cycling, gymnastics, and bodybuilding, being hair-free is a necessity. But where's the time to shave? 

We've all had it happen; life gets crazy and we have so much to do that we forget to shave. We show up to practice, not realizing our error until it's too late. Sports uniforms can be revealing, leaving your mistake hard to hide. It's embarrassing, uncomfortable, and the last thing you want to worry about it. 

Body hair removal in sports is more than just for the visual impact. Not having body hair can make you more aerodynamic and help athletes achieve a faster personal time. Several studies have proved this, especially in cycling and swimming.

Laser hair removal is the perfect solution for athletes who want to spend more time training and less time shaving. After just 18 months of treatments, most clients are hair free and never have to worry about shaving before practice again. It will shave off valuable time so athletes can spend time doing what they are passionate about.

5 reasons that college is the best time to get laser

College is the time to experiment and find yourself. It's a time when all of the rules go out the window and you get to start making your own decisions. One of the best decisions you can make during these formative years is to start laser hair removal.

Here's a list of our top five reasons to get started in college:

You don't have gray hair... yet.

Laser hair removal technology has come a long way over the last couple of years, but we are still unable to treat gray hair. Most people think that they won't ever go gray, but studies show that most women start growing gray hair in their early 30s. That makes college the ideal time to get this taken care of before you can't anymore.

You're dating around.

College introduces you to a lot of new people, including best friends and new loves. The last thing you want is to be seen with unsightly hairs and make a bad impression. It's perfect time to get laser when the largest number of people will appreciate it.

You don't have time to shave and you don't have money to wax.

College is hectic. You juggle classes, a job, homework, and some semblance of a social life all at once. Because of this, it's hard to find the time and energy to shave all of the different areas of your body. And waxing is just way too expensive on a college budget. Luckily, laser hair removal has actually become more affordable than waxing, faster than shaving, and on top of all of that, it's permanent. 

It's the time to flaunt.

You're young, you're hot, and you want the world to know it. You're constantly meeting new people, some who will be in your life forever. Make the most of this time by getting laser so that you don't have to worry about the possibility of missing a spot or cutting yourself. 

You get more value the earlier you start.

Since laser hair removal is permanent, the earlier you start, the more value it has for you. If you get rid of all of your hair when you're 20, you get to enjoy not having to shave for a long time. That is an amazing investment!

At-home laser hair removal: does it work?

You've probably seen the commercials offering permanent hair removal at home. We get a lot of questions on how at-home devices work and how they compare to laser hair removal in a clinic, so here is a breakdown!

at home laser hair removal comparison

All at-home laser hair removal devices are different. Some use pulses of light (think like a weak version of an IPL) to encourage the hair to fall out. However, these can be easy to accidentally burn yourself with. Others use radio frequency waves to "shock" the hair follicle. This is an attempt to crystalize the follicle, making hair growth difficult. 

Some devices want you to have your hair grown out for your at-home treatments, similar to waxing. This means you'll need to grow your hair out in between treatments, plus there is often an unpleasant burnt hair smell. 

Another little known fact about these devices is that they are incredibly time consuming. It takes longer than shaving and most people have to treat themselves multiple times a week. For people to see the results they are hoping for, it can take up to five years just to thin out the hair.  

The last thing to consider is that many of these devices are not FDA approved. When considering at-home last hair removal, be careful to read the reviews for the device (many people are unsatisfied with their lack of results). Also, make sure you do a price comparison. These devices range from $300-$600. 

For peace of mind, go to a trusted laser hair removal clinic that uses a proper laser for the best results, professional treatments, and an overall better experience.

Think Zinc! 3 reasons you should be using a Zinc based sunscreen

All sunscreens are not created equal. While SPF may be an important factor in which sunscreen you decide to pick up this summer, you should also make sure that you know what the active ingredient is in your sunscreen.

Many sunscreens use chemicals to protect you from the harmful rays of the sun. While this is better than nothing, using a physical sunscreen (zinc based) is much better for you and here's why:

  1. Zinc-based sunscreens protect against UVA and UVB rays. Most chemical sunscreens filter out the UVB rays that burn the skin but allow UVA rays to penetrate the skin, which causes the skin to age and harden.
  2. Zinc sunscreens also act as a physical block against the sun. The reason that Zinc is so effective in protecting the skin is that it physically stops the rays from entering your skin as opposed to chemical blocks that rely on a chemical reaction to protect you.
  3. The last reason that Zinc is so amazing is because it is always protecting you. As I said before, it acts as a physical barrier from the sun and can protect you all day as opposed to other sunscreens that stop protecting you after a certain amount of time.

This is not an exhaustive list of the reasons that Zinc is amazing. It has many qualities that make it the perfect complement to any beauty regimen. Order your own bottle using the promo code Zinc to get $5 off!
