Best Time of Year for Laser Hair Removal

winter treatmentsWhat is the best time of year to have laser hair removal?

While the benefits are most noticeable during the warmer, summer months, the best time of year for laser hair removal is actually winter.

So while holidays may seem a distant dream, you can start preparing now by having laser hair removal to tackle unwanted hair and reduce the need for daily shaving or regular waxing.

3 Reasons Why Winter is Good for Laser Hair Removal

1. Paler Skin, Darker Hair

The contrast of skin vs hair is at its greatest during winter as:

  • less tan from the sun
  • less bleaching to the hair

Laser hair removal works best when there is a good contrast, as the laser energy targets the pigment in hair.  Laser hair removal is designed to destroy the follicles and thereby prevent future regrowth.

2. Sun Protection

After laser hair removal, clients are advised to be very cautious about sun exposure, covering up and using high factor sunscreen.  This is less of a risk in winter as the skin is generally covered by clothing anyway, the sun is not as strong and the amount of time spent in the sun is at its lowest.  If you are having facial laser hair removal or a foreign holiday, then you will still need to have sun protection, but most people can worry a bit less about sun protection during winter, as the skin is simply not exposed.

3. Timing

Laser hair removal can deliver some improvement after the first treatment, but it will take a course of treatment in order to show the full results. This is because the laser targets hair in the active growth cycle, so a series of treatments are necessary in order to capture each successive set of hair growth. Starting during winter means that the full results will be complete by early summer – ready to enjoy the results.
