Why You Should Start Your Laser Hair Removal in Winter

Laser Hair Removal offers a permanent and safe way of getting rid of unwanted hair without damaging the skin. Unlike waxing and shaving, it’s much more convenient, effective, long-lasting and significantly reduces the risk of ingrown hairs.


While you can start Laser Hair Removal at any time in the year, the most popular time to start is in the cooler months. Why? Because you’ll experience the maximum results in Summer. Let’s dive into the reasons why Laser Hair Removal is so popular in the Winter.


  1. Limited sun exposure 

During Winter, you typically experience less sun exposure which is ideal for Laser Hair Removal treatments. To ensure optimum efficacy of the treatment and to avoid skin damage, you need to avoid excessive sun exposure two weeks before and after your Laser Hair Removal treatment. This makes Winter a more desirable time to start your Laser Hair Removal plan.


  1. Easier treatment preparation

You will need to take a break from waxing, plucking and depilatory creams before starting your Laser Hair Removal treatments. You also need to avoid fake tan as our medical-grade lasers can mistake tan trapped in the pores hair. For safety reasons, you must ensure no fake tan residue is present on the skin at the time of your treatment. During Summer, people often turn to fake tan for that Summer glow. For this reason, it’s much easier to start in Summer.


  1. Staying indoors 

After every session of Laser Hair Removal treatment, 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 cooler 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 all covered up as the hair can take up to two weeks to fall out.


Overall, Winter allows you to have Summer-ready skin. And when the warmer months arrive, you don’t need to worry about shaving and waxing because you’ll be hair-free!
