Is winter the best time to get laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal can be carried out during all seasons and all months of the year. However the winter months are better. During the winter months there are less ultraviolet rays than the summer months. During the summer months the skin is prone to tanning naturally from the sun. 

We all love the sunshine however if you have been exposed to the sunlight on the beach, holidays or even just a day at the park. This can result in a sun tan. Laser hair removal will be contra-indicated if the skin to be treated is tanned. If the area is tanned we will ask you to 3-4 weeks before your next laser hair removal session. During your course of treatments avoid sun exposure. Sun exposure and a tan can result in pigmentation issues especially when you are having laser hair removal. Laser hair removal can make the skin photosensitive. 

If you have decided to have a summer holiday to enjoy the sunshine you are probably better to start you laser hair removal journey in the winter. Laser hair removal in the winter will lead to a hair free summer body.

Avoiding heat

Following laser hair removal we suggest that you avoid any hot baths, exercise which can make you feel hot and saunas or steam rooms. During laser hair removal the follicles within the skin are heated up by the mechanism of photo thermolysis. This can make the treated area slightly more sensitive to heat. In the summer months due to the heat this tends to make our bodies feel more hotter and sweatier. Hence the reason why we say winter is ideal to start you laser hair removal journey and winter in the UK is very cold. 

Hair removal

We are dressed in warm clothing for the winter months meaning less of the body is exposed. Therefore we can avoid shaving, waxing and plucking in winter months as our body is covered up more. Another reason to start your journey with lasers in winter as you will have a session of laser every 4-6 weekly and you will not have shave regularly. Shaving can be done just before your  treatment session. This saves time and is less irritating to the skin.
