Laser Hair Removal

Is there an Ideal Time to Start My Laser Hair Removal Journey?

YES! ….. there is

Starting laser hair removal in Autumn/Winter is a really clever decision for many reasons –

Sad, but true with reduced Sunshine Exposure during these months and also that we tend to spend more time indoors due to cooler temperatures and shorter daylight hours, make it the perfect time to start.

This reduced sun exposure is beneficial because laser hair removal is most effective on untanned skin. Sun exposure can make the skin more sensitive and increase the risk of side effects like hyperpigmentation or burns.

We wear more clothes – In the colder months, we wear more clothing that cover the treated areas, making it easier to protect the skin from sun exposure immediately after a session. This can help prevent potential complications and ensure a smoother recovery.

Laser hair removal typically requires multiple sessions spaced several weeks apart to target hair follicles at different stages of growth. Choosing to start the process as autumn & winter draws in, gives you several months to complete the full series of treatments before spring graces us with its presence and then of course summer, when you might want to show off your beautiful smooth skin.

Laser hair removal can make your skin more sensitive for a short period after each session. The cooler months can be more comfortable for those with sensitive skin, as they are less likely to experience discomfort due to heat or sunburn.

It’s important to note that, regardless of the season, you should always follow the guidelines provided when it comes to protecting your skin from sun exposure during and after laser hair removal. Sunscreen and protective clothing are essential throughout the entire treatment process to ensure the best results and minimize the risk of adverse effects.
