Why Winter is The Perfect Time for Laser Hair Removal

Why Winter is The Perfect Time for Laser Hair Removal

Have you been considering getting laser hair removal? Maybe you are dreaming about
warmer, bikini weather and how great it would be not to have to worry about shaving all
the time! Well, if you are tired of shaving and looking for smooth, flawless skin, winter is
the time to make a dream come true. The cooler months are the perfect time for laser hair
removal and here are a few reasons why.

Less Sun
Before a laser treatments/session, the skin shouldn’t be exposed to the sun and the main
reason that fall and winter are the best times of year to start the treatment. Treatments
will be completed in six sessions and you will be ready by spring and summer without any
restrictions to stay out of the sun.

Also, when you get laser hair removal, the lasers target the melanin of the hair follicle.
So, when the skin is lighter, it is easier for the laser to identify the follicle. When the skin
is darker the laser is not as effective.

More Coverage
During laser hair removal, it is important that you are out of the sun for at least two weeks
or more before beginning treatments. During winter time, most people aren’t as exposed
to the sun, and when they are, they typically wear long sleeves and pants due to the
temperature which is the opposite of the warmer months where you are more likely to
wear shorts and tank tops!

Desired Results Take Time
The results you desire will take time. During the summer you will more than likely
want instant gratification and a quick fix. However, when it comes to laser hair removal
that is not the case and it does take time. Most patients need between 4 to 6 sessions
over the course of six months before the area is basically hair free. Due to the amount of
time it can take for the results, it is essential to begin the laser treatments long before you
plan to expose the area where you are getting treatment.
