Why is winter the best time to get laser hair removal? There are a few reasons!
Typically, people don’t have quite as much pigment on their skin during the winter season. The lasers used in the hair removal process are designed to target the melanin (pigment) of the hair in the follicle and disrupt growth. Therefore, the lighter your skin is, the easier it is for the laser to identify the hair in the follicle. If your skin is darker than your natural color, due to sun exposure or sunless tanning, the laser will not be as effective. It might even increase your risk of burning!
Sun exposure to most parts of the body is less likely to happen in the winter, so it’s definitely a more practical time to start laser hair removal treatments. Additionally, you must avoid sun exposure to the treated areas for 2-4 weeks prior to and following a laser hair removal session. Avoiding the sun is typically easier to do in winter.
Laser hair removal also takes time.
Laser hair removal targets hair in the first stage of growth in the follicle, so several sessions are necessary to eliminate all the hair in the area being treated. We usually recommend most clients plan for at least 4-6 sessions over the course of 6 months before the entire area is hair free. For this reason alone, you should begin the process long before you expect to wear clothing that will expose the areas of your body where the hair has been removed.
