5 Reasons to Start Laser Hair Removal This Winter

Woman undergoing laser hair removal.

Getting laser hair removal in the winter may seem counterproductive. Wouldn’t you want it removed in the summer when you’re enjoying the sun? Actually, winter is the best time to start hair removal, and there are many reasons for it.

More Effective on Lighter Skin

Laser hair removal is most effective with dark hair on lighter skin. It’s still possible to see results with lighter hair or darker skin, but you can improve outcomes by having treatments in the winter when you’re less likely to experience sun exposure, and your skin isn’t as tanned.

Easier to Avoid Sun Exposure

It’s also essential to avoid the sun after laser hair removal because your skin has already experienced concentrated light. Additional UV rays can cause hyperpigmentation or, in severe cases, burns. During the winter months, you’re more likely to wear pants and long sleeves or stay indoors away from the sun.

More Time to Heal

Hair removal treatments require time to heal. When starting them during the winter, your skin has plenty of time to recover from the effects of the laser. You may experience redness or swelling, which is often easier to disguise in winter with clothing than in summer.

Results by Summer

It takes several sessions of laser hair removal to start seeing results and, depending on the area being treated, could take as many as four to six. Because these treatments are five to six weeks apart, it can take time to see the full effect. By starting your hair removal process early, you can expect results by summer, when you can fully enjoy them.

Beat the Rush

Many people don’t think about laser hair removal until it’s time to bring out their summer attire. This causes a rush of appointments for these and other cosmetic procedures. Getting treatments in the “off-season” gives you more flexibility that can make it easier to work laser hair removal into your busy schedule.

If you’re tired of shaving or more painful hair removal methods, now is the best time to invest in laser hair removal like DiolazeXL. To learn more about this process and how it can benefit you, contact Creative Facial Aesthetics today to schedule your consultation.

Stephen P.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

Robin M.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

Scott S.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
