Are you fed up with the wax pain every month? Or are you complaining about shaving because it after 2 days your hair starts to grow and leave you with a prickly feeling on your skin? Then laser hair removal is the right thing for you!
Laser hair removal is an amazing long term hair reduction method that helps you to get rid of your unwanted hair. Thank s to the latest technology cooling system, it is not painful like waxing. And because it actually gets rid of the hair follicles, it leaves your skin silky smooth; unlike shaving.
And we are sure that you will be happy to hear that winter is the best time to start your laser hair removal journey. Why? Here are the main reasons why you should start your laser hair removal treatments now.
There is less sun exposure
Laser hair removal 101. The laser cannot be performed on tanned skin.
You will love the sun once your laser treatment finishes and you will be able to go to the beach without any preparation. But until then, you need to stay away from the sun!
Before starting your laser hair removal treatments, you need to make sure that the area is not been exposed to sun and there is no tanning. Also after your laser treatment, you need to wait 2-4 weeks before you can suntan. Otherwise, your skin can get damaged and some pigmentation can occur. Also, we recommend having your laser sessions every 4-6 weeks. If you get suntan after your laser session, you won’t be able to get your skin ready before your next laser appointment.
You can probably see why starting your laser sessions in winter is beneficial. Your skin has already been away from the sun and ready for permanent hair reduction. And you can make sure you won’t get any tan between your sessions as especially London in the winter doesn’t really match with beach requirements.
No excessive sweating during the winter
Laser by its nature heats the hair follicles and gets rid of them. We do use the latest technology cooling to make sure you are as comfortable as possible during your treatment. But the laser beams still heat the hair follicle. This may cause the skin around the hair follicles to get more heat-sensitive for 24-48 hours.
We recommend you to prevent excessive sweating and getting exposed to heat right after your laser session. However, during the summer time, it is not as easy to do so.
Wintertime, on the other hand, is perfect for you to stay cool after your laser hair removal treatment with our experts. As long as you don’t take very hot showers or use the sauna or steam room, nature’s cooling will help you to be more comfortable after your session.
You don’t need to shave or wax during winter as you will be more covered up
Laser hair removal works on hair follicles. If it’s applied on your actual hair, it will burn the hair and can cause pigmentation.
To prevent this, we kindly ask you to shave the treatment area 24 hours before your laser treatment. But until then, you need to let your hair be free!
It takes 4-6 weeks for a hair follicle to complete its cycles and come to the correct stage for the laser to be effective on. If you wax during this time, you will change the whole cycle period and on your next laser session, the laser may not be able to as effective as usual.
Winter times come with their layers. The long sleeves, tights under skirts, and not being the bikini weather outside helps to cover your excess hair as well. This way you can let your hair be on the perfect stage during your sessions.
You will be beach ready by the summer
We recommend 6-8 hair removal session for the optimum results. And each session would need to be 4-6 weeks apart.
If you were to start your laser hair removal treatments now, you can easily be ready to enjoy stress-free summer!
