Let’s get started with the best time to start laser hair removal.
The best time to start laser hair removal is when your skin is at its healthiest. This means you should schedule your appointment before or after summer, when your skin tan free! September is the most busiest time of the year for laser hair removal treatments!
If you have darker skin, spring and fall are also great times of year for laser hair removal sessions. You won’t need as many sessions during these seasons because they provide less light (which can damage your skin).
You May need multiple sessions
Laser hair removal isn’t a one-and-done sort of deal. Normally, it takes between 6 -8 sessions to achieve complete results. Those sessions have to be spaced out by about a month.
In the shortest, you might complete your series of laser hair removal treatments within 5 months. At the longest, it can take around a year. Keep this in mind and consider when you want to finish your treatments before you get started.
Winter is a great time to start laser hair removal.
Laser hair removal can be a really great way to get rid of unwanted hair, but it does come with some risks. In most cases, the best time to start laser hair removal is in the fall or at the beginning of winter.
The reason for this is pretty simple. After laser hair removal, your skin will be pretty sensitive and your chances of getting a bad sunburn are very high. In winter and fall, we don’t go outside as much and we tend to wear more layers. It’ll be much easier to protect your skin from the sun during that time of year!
Additionally, heat and sweat can also exacerbate the sensitivity of the laser hair removal treatment. You’re much more likely to work up a sweat in the summer, so that’s another reason to try and avoid laser hair removal during that season.
The Benefits of Fall and Winter Laser Hair Removal
Spring and summer are just around the corner, and if you’re anything like us, you’re already thinking about what you’ll wear when it gets warm again.
But have you ever stopped to wonder why your legs and bikini area feel so smooth in the summer? It might be because you shave or wax them every few weeks—but there’s another option: laser hair removal!
Almost all women have had this moment: It’s spring or summer, you want to head to the beach or rock a short skirt, and then you realise that you’ll have to shave or wax first.
It’s also a big reason why starting laser hair removal well in advance of the hot seasons is such a good idea. If you start your laser hair removal a the beginning of fall, you might achieve your desired level of smoothness right before spring starts!
What could be better than being totally hair-free for spring and summer?
Time & Scheduling
When you’re ready to start your laser hair removal, it’s important to consider your schedule and general availability, as well as any special events or travel plans you may have.
For example, maybe you want to start your laser hair removal right in time for a tropical vacation in winter. Or maybe you’d rather wait until spring so that you can be done before going on a 3-month research expedition to the Galapagos.
Another consideration is whether or not you’ll be able to come in for follow-up sessions after starting your laser hair removal. You don’t want to schedule your first laser hair removal appointment before a 3-month research expedition.
Think about your personal plans, especially when it comes to travel and special events. If your situation is more complicated than that, don’t worry! We’ll be happy to help you figure out the best time for getting started with laser hair removal.
