When to get laser hair removal

Before deciding when to get laser hair removal, it’s always best to discuss with your practitioner – particularly if this is your first time. They can help to determine the most appropriate time for you to undergo your sessions, discuss your current health condition and any potential medications you may be on. (remove this)

Why laser hair removal in the winter is best

Low UV Factor

The reason winter is often considered one of the best times for laser hair removal is because treatment should be administered when your skin has had the least exposure to UV rays and sunlight. During the colder months, UV factor is low, meaning your skin is less likely to react or burn during your laser sessions. But remember, always wear an SPF on your treated areas no matter what time of year you get laser hair removal! (non of this makes sense, remove this)

Perfect Timing

When considering when to get laser hair removal, you have to factor in the time frames between appointments and your final results. By getting laser hair removal in the winter, your course of treatments would be complete in perfect timing for the spring and summer. 

Starting treatment during the summer months may prolong the process. Tanned or sunburnt skin cannot be treated as your skin is more susceptible to burns after long exposure to strong UV rays. During the winter, treatments can be quicker, however there are a number of other factors that may make these times fluctuate (including where on the body you’re getting laser hair removal, hormones, medication and genetics). (A lot of this is not true its not quicker in the winter, remove to)

Protecting Your Skin

As you know, exposure to UV rays and sun tanned skin can be a huge risk for those choosing when to get laser hair removal. But why is that exactly? Well, because your skin is more sensitive and susceptible to burning after exposure the ultra violet rays! 

You should be covering the treated area and wearing SPF at all times during your course of laser hair removal; and keeping your skin covered during the summer is much harder than in the winter.
