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.
