Losing belly fat isn’t just a summer thing - it’s a goal that many women (and men) struggle with at times. If you’ve been trying to switch up your diet and hit the gym more but still aren’t seeing the results, these might be the reasons:

You’re doing the wrong workout
Cardio workouts alone won’t help you slim down your waist. What you need is a balance of cardio strength training and weight resistance training. Muscle burns more calories than fat, which means you naturally burn more calories by having more muscle.

You’re eating too many processed foods
Refined grains like white bread, chips, and sugary drinks only increase inflammation in your body. Continuing to eat these processed foods will only slow the process of losing belly fat, so start incorporating more natural foods, fruit, vegetables, and whole grains which into your diet. They all have anti-inflammatory properties and can prevent belly bloat.

You’re aging
It’s not just a myth - as you mature, your body changes the way it gains and loses weight. Your metabolism slows and you will experience menopause. In menopause, the production of estrogen and progesterone slows. The testosterone levels start to drop, but at a slow rate. This causes women to hold weight in their bellies. You can, however, fight this by doing a combination of weight and cardiovascular training.

If a healthy diet and exercise isn’t helping you achieve the body you want and deserve, Cavi-Lipo can help! Ask us about our cavi-lipo treatments to see how they can benefit you. Call today for a free consultation at 516.307.1543 or visit our website for more information. We offer treatments to patients on Long Island at our Garden City location, 825 East Gate Blvd., Suite #104.

Winter is not a girl’s best friend, which is why giving your skin a little extra TLC is essential. Here are 10 tips we recommend to help you get a radiant winter’s glow:

1. Wash with lukewarm water as this will avoid the stripping of your natural oils.
2. Moisturize immediately after bathing. It needs this especially after washing up.
3. Choose the right moisturizer - one that is nourishing and doesn’t have petroleum based ingredients (which can further dry your skin in winter).
4. Install a humidifier in your home to put even more moisture back into your skin while you’re sleeping.
5. Drink more water instead of hot cocoa because your skin needs extra hydration from the inside, out.
6. Exfoliate to eliminate dead cells, especially on our hands. Find an exfoliating mask you can use on both your hands and face and moisturize immediately afterwards.
7. Switch up your cleanser for a more hydrating version that contains moisturizing ingredients.
8. Eat foods high in water. Winter makes us want to turn to comfort foods, but opting for apples, oranges, tomatoes, and zucchini can support the healthy production of collagen and elastin.
9. Avoid toxins and irritants such as wool and chemical-laden detergents, which can bother sensitive skin.
10. Try making a DIY hydrating mask using ingredients such as avocado, honey, yogurt, olive, and jojoba oil.

Don’t forget to pamper yourself with one of Tropicalaser’s organic hydrating facials! All signs of roughness and  winter dryness will be smoothed away to leave a polished and glowing complexion. We service Garden City, Great Neck, and surrounding areas. Give us a call at (516) 307-1543 to schedule your FREE consultation with an experienced Tropicalaser practitioner.

Haunted houses should be the only thing making you scream this Halloween, not your monthly waxing appointment. While the pain of waxing is something most men and women have come to terms with, take a minute to learn about some of the ways waxing may be harming your body before scheduling your next appointment. 

Burns. Nearly every woman who has tried a ‘home wax kit’ has a horror story. The most common problem? Burning yourself. Keeping the wax just a degree or two too hot can burn your skin off, leaving it red and inflamed.

Irritation. Remember the first time you had your eyebrows waxed? You expected to look in the mirror and see Brooke Shields, but instead you just saw red, blotchy skin that had swelled to twice its normal size. Even though the redness usually goes away within 24 hours, waxing can still leave your skin dry, sensitive to the touch and itchy - especially when done on more sensitive areas, like bikini line and underarms.

Infection. Tearing out hair from its follicle is not only painful, but leaves behind hundreds of small open wounds. With all those open wounds, it’s no surprise that you’re more susceptible to infection after getting waxed. “Pulling the hairs out of those areas increases the risk that tiny skin tears will get bacteria in them that was never meant to be inside the skin. It can cause surface infections and even deeper cellulitis in some cases,” said Dr. Jessica Krant, M.D., an Assistant Clinical Professor of Dermatology.

Scarring. Years of waxing (especially if not done properly) can leave skin permanently irritated, wrinkled or scarred.

Ingrown hairs. Anytime you pull a hair out by the root, a new one takes its place a few weeks later. New thin and weak hairs can get stuck under your skin if it can’t make it to the surface - leaving you with an ingrown hair. Not only are they irritating and unsightly, but can become infected if not treated or removed.

Still want that smooth, just shaved feeling all year long, but without the harmful effects of waxing? Try laser hair removal for a painless, long lasting solution to unwanted hair. Give us a call at 1 (516) 307-1543 to schedule your free consultation. During your consultation, your expert practitioner at Tropicalaser will assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you. Plus, at Tropicalaser - we frequently offer discounts and specials, interest free financing and offer the best prices. If you find it cheaper - we’ll match it or beat it.

Let’s just admit it: winter isn’t our skin’s best friend. 

By now, you might be happy that  your air isn’t frizzing up, but what about your skin? For most of us, winter means cracked hands, scaly legs, and dry cheeks. What you need to combat the lack of moisture is a new beauty routine. Grab these 7 basic skin care products to help you feel better in your skin:

1. Moisturizer: You will need to moisturize - a lot more than you did over the summer. First, find out your specific skin type, whether you’re dry or oily/dry combination.Apply within a few minutes of bathing to help trap the moisture. 

2. Vaseline: Vaseline will be your new best friend. This petroleum jelly-based product can be used for anything from a lip balm to a foot cream. It also moistens your feed, elbows, and knees.

3. Aquaphor: Aquaphor isn’t much different than Vaseline. It’s like your secret ingredient to skin care therapy, especially for dry under-eye patches. 

4. Humidifier: A humidifier might take up more space in your bedroom, but for what it’s worth, a humidifier can hyper-hydrate your skin while you sleep and prevent that pesky, itchy outer layer. 

5. Warm Water: Taking a hot shower is tempting when the temps outside are freezing, but before you turn that handle, let’s get one fact straight: hot water removes the natural oils from your skin, removing natural oils and making your skin even more dry. If you’re willing to sacrifice your beautiful, healthy skin go for hot, but if you’re looking to avoid looking scaly, then warm water it is!

6. Cream Cleanser: Just before bed and in the morning, you’ll need a creamy cleanser to moisturize the skin, remove your makeup, and avoid irritating your skin at the same time. 

7. Toothbrush: A toothbrush will be your guide to soft, luscious lips this winter. Why? Because scraping off excess skin with bristles is a friendly cure for your chapped lips.

Looking for more winter skincare tips and treatments? Turn to Tropicalaser.  We offer a wide variety of facials such as our Pear & Poppy Seed Polishing Facial, designed to return clarify and luminosity to the skin as dead cells are exfoliated. In the end, all signs of roughness and dryness will be smoothed away to leave a polished and glowing complexion. We service Garden City, Great Neck, and surrounding areas. Give us a call at (516) 307-1543 to schedule your FREE consultation with an experienced Tropicalaser practitioner.

In today’s world where many women and men are looking to remove unwanted body hair, it’s not uncommon to opt for laser hair removal. In fact, many are turning to this skincare treatment because it’s less time consuming and is financially worth it in the long run. But how do you know when to start such treatments? At Tropicalaser, we believe that fall is the perfect time to start your laser hair removal journey, and here’s why:


Save time and money
Think about the time and items you spend money on to beautify your legs, underarms, and bikini area - razors, blades, conditioning soap, shaving cream, waxing kits, and aftershave. American women who shave will spend an average of ten thousand dollars and nearly two entire months of their lives managing unwanted hair! A woman who waxes once or twice per month can spend anywhere around twenty-three thousand dollars over the course of her lifetime - and in modern day, the same applies to men. Although laser hair removal is more money upfront, there is something to be said about saving money (and hours) in the long run. 

Fall is perfect time to start
The average woman or man needs about 4 to 8 weeks between laser hair removal treatments. And approximately 4 to 6 treatments are needed, depending on location and hair type. With the time you need in between and the amount of sessions required, your skin will be silky smooth just in time for next beach season!

Looking for a way to get rid of unwanted hair for good before next bikini season? Give us a call at 1 (516) 307-1543 to schedule your free consultation. During your consultation, your expert practitioner at Tropicalaser will assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you. Plus, at Tropicalaser - we frequently offer discounts and specials, interest free financing and offer the best prices. If you find it cheaper - we’ll match it or beat it.

You’ve heard it a handful of times: drinking water helps you lose weight. But how, why, and is it true? In short, yes, drinking water really can help you slim down. However,  maybe not for the same reasons you think:

Drink before you eat
Water is an appetite suppressant, so drinking a glass before meals can make you feel fuller and make you less likely to binge. In fact, WebMD states that “drinking water before meals results in an average reduction in intake of 75 calories per meal”. That means you’d lose about eight pounds per year just because you’re drinking more water!

Drink it cold
Drink more water, and drink it cold. WebMD also claims that drinking ice cold water boosts your metabolism because your body needs to work harder to warm it up, leading you to burn more calories (hence, lose weight).

Drink it often
If you’re also hitting the gym to slim down, make sure you’re especially drinking more water. This natural fluid helps prevent muscle cramps and keeps joints lubricated, meaning you can work out longer and harder - plus, it feels refreshing post-workout.

If following the rules of drinking water and working out aren’t giving you the results you desire, then turn to the Cavi Lipo experts at Tropicalaser. Ask us about our treatments to see how they can benefit you. Call today for a free consultation at 516.307.1543 or visit our website for more information. We offer treatments to patients on Long Island at our Garden City location, 825 East Gate Blvd., Suite #104.

As Summer turns to Fall, it’s necessary to adopt a new skincare regime. We like to think of it as tweaking your daily beauty routine. These small changes in the end can do wonders for the skin, especially when dry winters come around. If you’re unsure how to make this simple change, follow our quick guideline below:

Cleansers - Never hit the pillow without cleansing your skin. Makeup and all that junk you apply to your face, neck, and chest can clog pores and cause premature aging and breakouts. To improve the feel and appearance of your skin, use warm water to loosen dirt and clogged pores. Then, apply a dime-sized amount of your favorite cleanser (depending on your skin type). Gently massage away all that dirt and rinse with lukewarm water. Speaking of skin types: remember that cream cleansers are best for dry skin and gel formulas are more suited for oily complexions.

Exfoliators - We’re always big advocates on exfoliation, but if you want a healthy glow in dry winters, a facial scrub is a must-have skincare item. Not only do they help speed up skin cell production, but they also help clear away old skin cells. Not to mention, they unclog pores. Look for an exfoliator made from natural fruit enzymes - one that will dissolve dead skin cells without microbeads. Exfoliate about once or twice a week depending on how your skin type (dry skin needs once a week while oily combination skin needs three or four).

Moisturizer - Moisturizer is a year-round beauty essential, but finding the right one for fall and winter is the trick. Remember: you always need a base of SPF to protect your skin against UVA and UVB rays. The air in winter is dry, so treat your skin accordingly - mainly by purchasing the right formula and applying twice daily. In the morning, rinse using a slightly lighter formula. Before bedtime, use a richer formula - one that contains collagen, elastin, and essential lipids to refresh your face and slow the aging process overtime.  

We’re loving this list of other skincare essentials from Health Magazine!

For additional skincare tips and treatments, turn to Tropicalaser.  We offer a wide variety of facials such as our Pear & Poppy Seed Polishing Facial, designed to return clarify and luminosity to the skin as dead cells are exfoliated. In the end, all signs of roughness and dryness will be smoothed away to leave a polished and glowing complexion.

People have different interpretations of taking care of your body - eating right, sleeping well, meditating, taking good care of your skin - the list goes on! While there’s no right or wrong answer to what it means to take care of your body, there are two core practices that can inspire you to fall in love all over ahead - especially if you’ve been neglecting what’s important to you. What it comes down to is taking good care of your body:

Find the right diet
If you want to fall in love with your body, you need to fuel it well. And we don’t mean adding a few healthy meals here and there. What we mean is adopting a new lifestyle and diet. Toss away the old junk in your pantry and fill it with delicious, nutritious snacks instead, such as dark chocolate covered almonds. It also means filling your fridge with your favorite produce. The more healthy foods you put in front of you, the more inclined you are to eat them. You know what they say - walk around the grocery store, not in the middle of it! You’ll find the most healthy foods around the perimeter.

Adopt an exercise routine
Falling in love with your body isn’t always about looks - it’s also about feeling good. While maintaining a healthy diet is the first step, the second step is to exercise right. When you exercise, you gain more energy, more confidence, you get in touch with your inner self, and you feel stronger (both mentally and physically). It takes discipline, but if you can find even a few minutes to walk every day or pair up with a friend, you’ll be able to adopt a fitness routine that makes you feel better than ever.

While we believe that diet and exercise can boost your self confidence, we know that sometimes you’re looking for a little more. If you’re looking to slim down, turn to the Cavi Lipo experts at Tropicalaser. Ask us about our treatments to see how they can benefit you. Call today for a free consultation at 516.307.1543 or visit our website for more information.

It may be the end of summer this week but that doesn’t mean it’s the end of grooming hair down there for all the ladies out there. While some women opt for waxing the area, shaving is still the most popular form of grooming, according to a study published in JAMA Dermatology. Unfortunately, one thing that always goes hand in hand while shaving your pubic hair are bumps, redness, and irritation. 

Want to learn the right way to shave in order to avoid these pesky side effects? Follow these steps:

Dont Skip Pre-Shave Prep

Has it been awhile since your last shave (no judgement here!)? Start by trimming your hair first before taking a razor to it. Next, soak the bikini area with warm water for 10 minutes to help prevent razor burn..this will soften your skin which makes it easier to remove hair. Lastly, exfoliate and moisturize your skin. Exfoliating once a week will help remove dead skin and extend the life of your razor blades. 

Buy The Right Razor

You should invest in two different razors - one for your bikini area and one for your legs and underarms. The bikini area is sensitive which means it needs a razor that is less harsh on the skin - two to three blades max. 

Shave Smart

DO NOT shave against the direction of hair growth. By shaving in the direction that your hair grows you prevent razor burn as well as ingrown hairs. Your blade should feel smooth over your hair, if you feel a lot of pressure and resistance, you’re pressing too hard.

Post-Shave Rinse And Moisturize

Hold a cold compress to the area for about 10 minutes to prevent irritation. The last step is to apply moisturizer. Try to stay away from heavy creams with perfume and alcohol ingredients. Try a moisturizer with aloe vera or lavender oil to help sooth the area. 

Looking for a way to get rid of your pubic hair for good? Instead of shaving and waxing try laser hair removal. Tropicalaser is one of the leaders in Laser Hair Removal, with many locations for your convenience. We have the best trained Medical Staff, the cleanest facilities, and the latest Equipment.

Pinterest is full of random hacks from cooking to shopping and even shaving! We love coming across little tips that can help us ladies avoid the pain of shaving. Here are our top favorites:

Getting a perfect underarm shave:
First you need to invest in a good razor, finding one that is soft yet efficient. Make sure you have a gentle touch as to not irritate the skin. Prepare by shaving when you are under the shower or right after you finish it to avoid injury. Move your razor in a c-shaped motion or angle as opposed to up and down (since the skin grows in many directions there). On top of that, you will need a great lotion - one that can remove the unpleasant irritation and leave your skin feeling silky smooth.

Making bikini line shaving less miserable:
BuzzFeed recommends trimming your hair down there before shaving. Keep the hair just a few centimeters long., Once you’re ready to shave, relax in the shower about 5 to 10 minutes beforehand to open up the pores. Lastly, get into the habit of exfoliating your skin before you start shaving. “This primes the area so you can remove the hair more easily.” 

Shaving your legs properly:
When it comes to shaving your legs, don’t skimp on the cream. It’s incredibly important to hydrate your hairs with a sensitive shaving cream formula before you just go at it. You can also apply baby oil before the shaving cream to prevent razor burn in the shower.

If you’re tired of the daily shave, you might want to consider switching to an alternative solution - laser hair removal. Laser Hair Removal is designed so that you never have to purchase shaving and waxing supplies again! At Tropicalaser, we will assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you. Plus, at Tropicalaser - we frequently offer discounts and specials, interest free financing and offer the best prices. If you find it cheaper - we’ll match it or beat it.

Laser hair removal has become one of the most popular, non-invasive treatments among both men and women. While most people can be a candidate for this procedure, there are a few signs you’ll want to look out for. We recommend the following: 

Your skin is not prone to pigmentation

The most common side effects of laser hair removal are skin irritation and discoloration and pigment changes. If you’re one whose skin gets pigmented easily, you might want to talk to your clinic about testing to see how your skin reacts to the treatment. 

You are free of skin conditions

Generally speaking, laser hair removal is not recommended for people with skin disease or infection. Part of the reason being that some medications you take for your skin conditions, such as isotretinoin, could make you photosensitive. Inform your doctor about such conditions before your treatment. 

You have dark hair

LHR works best when the pigment in your hair absorbs the light energy of the laser being used. As a result, it heats up the hair and causes small blood vessels that feeds the hair to close. Without blood flow, the hair cannot regrow, which is what makes laser hair removal so successful. 

Like the sound of never having to shave, bleach or wax again? Give us a call at 1 (516) 307-1543 to schedule your free consultation. During your consultation, your expert practitioner at Tropicalaser will assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you.

As the days get shorter and your skin gets a little drier, it’s time to switch up your skincare routine, prep your complexion for cool weather, and repair sun damage. From sunscreen to soap, here are a few tips we recommend: 

Switch up your sunscreen

Summer heat and humidity can be heavy on the skin, so you’re forced to give your complexion a break by lightening up on your sunscreen by switching to a gel or liquid formula. This fall, you don't have to worry about looking or feeling too greasy if you choose a creamier one.

Layer up your moisturizer

The same goes for your moisturizer. When the temperatures outside are hot and humid, you have to choose a lightweight product. But in the fall, your skin will start to dry up, leading you to need a slightly heavier moisturizer than you did last month.

Ditch the soap

Soap can make your skin dry out easily, so choose a hydrating cleanser or creamy body wash that will leave your skin feeling silky smooth all through the fall and winter months. 

Get a facial 

Just because summer is almost over, doesn’t mean you should forget about exfoliating and clarifying. In fact, you should be doing it more as the weather dries up! At Tropicalaser, we offer a wide variety of facials such as our Pear & Poppy Seed Polishing Facial, designed to return clarify and luminosity to the skin as dead cells are exfoliated. In the end, all signs of roughness and dryness will be smoothed away to leave a polished and glowing complexion.  

We service Garden City, Great Neck, and surrounding areas. Give us a call at (516) 307-1543 to schedule your FREE consultation with an experienced Tropicalaser practitioner.

With all the shaving you do on a weekly basis, we took it upon ourselves to dig up some of the most interesting facts on the internet about the way your hair follicles work (and some other cool info you probably don’t know). Many of these surprised us as well! 

  1. Shaving, tweezing, or waxing does not cause hair to grow back thicker or fuller (but it still is a hassle)
  2. When saturated with water, the strength of a single strand of hair is approximately ⅓ to ½ less than the strength of dry hair, making it much easier to shave.
  3. The average person has about 615 hairs per square centimeter.
  4. The first safety razor was patented in 1901.
  5. Shaving cream was only made for men until the industry specifically targeted women in 1986.
  6. Nearly 70% of American women prefer a clean-shaven man.
  7. There are nearly 5 million hair follicles covering the human body.
  8.  The odds for damaging the skin increase significantly with an older, blunt blade.
  9. Shaving in the direction of hair growth will reduce the blade's friction with the skin.
  10. Body hair usually grows out from an individual’s skin at a 30 to 60 degree angle.
  11. Hair grows faster during the day than at night.

Wouldn’t you prefer to be easily hair-free? Most women wish they could remove bikini, underarm, leg, and facial hair forever, which is why Tropicalaser offers Laser Hair Removal treatments for you!

Give us a call at 1 (516) 307-1543 to schedule your free consultation.

It’s no secret that warmer, more humid temperatures can cause more acne prone individuals to breakout in the midst of summer. Switch up your skincare routine to help fight acne and put your best face forward. 

Clean Deep

The hot, humid weather can cause your oil glands to kick in big time, which ultimately leads to clogged pores. Beat it with a cleansing brush that can get deep into your skin - more so than your soaped up fingers can. 

Apply Toner

Got ultimate oily skin? Use a toner. Tab a bit on in the morning and at night using a cotton pad. Gently apply to the forehead, nose, cheeks, and chin. Don’t forget the neck and chest area! This method in conjunction with deep cleansing will fight pimples. 

Treat Breakouts Immediately

When you see a pimple, don’t wait! Treat it with a thin layer of benzoyl peroxide spot treatment before bed and allow it to work overnight. The treatment will kill bacteria that causes zits to grow in the most unwanted places.

If these three tips just aren’t doing the trick for your skin, then pamper yourself with organic facial treatments from Tropicalaser of Long Island! A facial cleans, exfoliates and nourishes the skin, promoting a clear, well-hydrated complexion, and can help your skin look younger.

We service Garden City, Great Neck, and surrounding areas. Give us a call at (516) 307-1543 to schedule your FREE consultation with an experienced Tropicalaser practitioner.

Smooth skin has become an obsession for many people - shaving, waxing, threading - doing everything one can to remove that unwanted patch of hair. But all that money adds up, which is why laser hair removal is so convenient. Sure, it costs more money upfront, but in the long run, the money savings and aesthetic results are well worth it!

If you’re thinking about biting the bullet and getting laser hair removal treatments, chances are you have a few questions. We’ve got your answers!

The best candidate
Laser hair removal doesn’t work on all skin types. In fact, it has been proven to work best on those with light skin and dark hair.

How long it takes
Laser hair removal takes several sessions to take full effect. Ask your laser hair removal clinic to assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you and figure out how long it will take. Most patients see the greatest results after 4 to 6 sessions.

The pain
By now you might be wondering if it hurts. The truth is, the treatment causes only minimal discomfort- many patients say that it feels similar to the snap of a rubber band. At Tropicalaser, our advanced laser has a built-in cooling system, but ice packs can also be applied pre and post treatment to further lessen any discomfort. 

After effects
After the treatment you may see some slight redness or very occasionally localized swelling, but this usually subsides within the first 24 hours after the hair removal session.

Like the sound of never having to shave, bleach or wax again? Give us a call at 1 (516) 307-1543 to schedule your free consultation. During your consultation, your expert practitioner at Tropicalaser will assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you.

When was the last time you said, “I’ll start tomorrow?”

Every day is a chance for new beginnings - especially when you’re feeling the Monday Blues. Everyone does - but there’s a difference between those who let it defeat them, and those who defeat it. Whether it be for your health, your diet, or your professional or personal life, there is no excuse to stop fighting for you! But for all those “if” and “buts”, we’re here to whisper that friendly reminder in your ear that anything is possible when you set your mind to it. Here are your Monday Mantras (for today and every day):

1. When you’re afraid or lack the energy to start something new.
“Every journey begins with a single step.”

2. When you feel like you can’t go farther.
“Know your limitations and then defy them.”

3. When you feel like skipping a workout.
“Exercise gives me energy and makes me feel happy.”

4. When you’re muscles feel fatigued ( don’t give up!)
“I am powerful, I am unstoppable.”

5. When you’re having a tough day at work.
“Strive for progress, not perfection.”

6. When your day couldn’t be going any worse (it can).
“Clear your mind of ‘can’t’.”

7. When you put your dreams aside and stay in your comfort zone.
“This is your life. Do what you love, and do it often. If you don’t like something, change it.”

8. When you’re feeling fearful.
“What would you attempt to do if you knew you could not fail?”

9. When someone tries to bring you down and question your efforts.
“I’m doing this for me.”

10. When the going gets tough.
“Breathe through it.”

We love that you're feeling motivated! No matter what aspect of  your life you decide to improve on, keeping these 10 mantras in mind is key. But as Long Island’s licensed skincare and Cavi Lipo experts, we know that sometimes all the diet and exercise in the world doesn’t give you the aesthetic goals you have in mind. Ask us about our cavi-lipo treatments to see how they can benefit you. Call today for a free consultation at 516.307.1543 or visit our website for more information. We offer treatments to patients on Long Island at our Garden City location, 825 East Gate Blvd., Suite #104.

Most of us women can agree: achieving a smooth shave isn’t easy. In fact, sometimes it feels impossible - especially when you’re rushing out in the morning. But with a few quick tips, you might be able to change some of your shaving habits:

Skip the single blade
Many women are guilty more often than not of using single blade disposable razors. Single blades are not made to reach all hair in every angle, especially under the knee and around the ankles. For a good, close shave, you’ll need to invest in a 4 to 5 blade razor whose blade head you can change time and time again when it becomes dull.

Shaving first thing
Another common mistake is waking up and immediately reaching for your razor. The truth is, when we sleep at night, our legs swell, causing the hair to retreat back into their follicles. Therefore, shaving right after you wake up only makes for an incomplete shave in which you’ll find yourself having to shave again later in the day. So instead, shave either right before bed or wait a good twenty to thirty minutes before attacking your stubble.

Grooming with dry legs
Shaving dry is a big no-no for us, gals! Not everyone has time in the morning to wait to shave, but trust us - if you give yourself a few extra minutes to lather up with a conditioning shaving cream, the results will be night and day. 

When all’s said and done, shaving is undoubtedly a hassle - but laser hair removal isn’t! If you’re ready to bite the bullet and start your laser hair removal treatments to banish hair for good, give us a call at 1 (516) 307-1543 to schedule your free consultation.

During your consultation, your expert practitioner at Tropicalaser will assess your skin and hair type to determine which course of laser hair removal will best suit you. Plus, at Tropicalaser - we frequently offer discounts and specials, interest free financing and offer the best prices. If you find it cheaper - we’ll match it or beat it.
