Laser hair removal offers a permanent and safe way to remove unwanted hair without damaging the skin. Unlike waxing and shaving, it is much more convenient, effective, long-lasting and significantly reduces the risk of ingrown hairs.
While you can start laser hair removal at any time of the year, the most popular time to start is in the cooler months. Why? Because you will experience maximum results in summer. Let’s break down the reasons why laser hair removal is so popular in the winter.
1. Limited sun exposure
During the winter, you typically experience less sun exposure, which is ideal for laser hair removal treatments. To ensure optimal treatment efficacy and prevent skin damage, you should avoid excessive sun exposure for two weeks before and after your laser hair removal treatment. This makes winter a more desirable time to start your laser hair removal plan.
2. Easier treatment preparation
You will need to take a break from waxing, hair removal, and depilatory creams before starting your laser hair removal treatments. You should also avoid fake tanning, as our medical-grade lasers can confuse tan trapped in hair pores. For safety reasons, you must ensure that there is no fake tan residue on your skin at the time of your treatment. During the summer, people often turn to a fake tan for that summery glow. Therefore, it is much easier to start in the summer.
3. Stay indoors
After each laser hair removal treatment session, our experienced therapists recommend that you avoid excessive sweating, swimming, and wearing tight, restrictive clothing. These are much easier to avoid in winter.
During the colder months you can enjoy staying indoors in your comfortable clothes while allowing the laser hair removal to work, it’s magic! It’s also easier to stay fully covered, as hair can take up to two weeks to fall out.
In general, winter allows you to have summer-ready skin. And when the warmer months roll around, you won’t have to worry about shaving and waxing because you won’t be hairy!
