Considering laser? Why winter is the best time to start your summer beauty prep

They say summer bodies are made in winter, and when it comes to things like hair removal, it’s true. Laser is, without a doubt, the most effective method of waving bye-bye to body hair for good and because you need multiple treatments weeks apart (which cannot be done if you’re exposing your skin to the sun), winter is the best time to start prepping for bikini season.

That said, the landscape of laser is vast and varied, with many machines that simply don’t cut the mustard. In fact, there have been instances of practitioners with very little skill or experience buying sub-par machines and promising life-changing results for very low prices. But if something is too good to be true, it probably is.

So, while not every laser is created equal, allow us to guide you on where to find the ones that rise above the rest. Dubbed the ‘Rolls Royce in laser hair removal’ the Candela Gentle Max Pro is widely touted as one of the highest quality machines in the world, lauded for its pain-free process, lasting results and for the fact that it works on a wider range of skin-types than others of its kind. This means that even those for whom this treatment hasn’t worked in the past could now be a candidate to get results, thanks to the two-laser system at play here.

Lucky for us then, that this unparalleled hair-removal option is available locally at Off & On. There, laser treatments are run by some of the most experienced specialists in the country, including Off & On’s National Trainer Stacey Faloon.

“Having been in the business for over a decade, Off & On truly are New Zealand’s hair removal experts,” says Stacey. “In addition to having top-tier laser hair removal technology, we also ensure our technicians receive formal training and qualifications. The result is being able to offer our clients some of the highest qualified technicians in the country that clinically understand the effect of our laser machines on different bodies, ensuring that everyone receives the best possible treatment for their skin and hair type.”

And if all that wasn’t enough, a course of laser at Off & On is unlike anywhere else, thanks to the way each treatment is tailored to the individual. There is no one-size-fits-all approach here. Whatever your goals, however you want to tame your body hair (be it a little, or a lot) the experts at Off & On know exactly what to do to get you there. Which is exactly why we’re kicking off our summer beauty prep here, and why you should too. Trust us, you’ll never look back.
