Top 5 Reasons Laser Hair Removal is Better in Autumn and Winter

Many people are turning to laser hair removal as the best way of removing unwanted hair without causing any damage to the skin. As opposed to either shaving or waxing, laser hair removal is far more convenient and effective. It also provides a longer-lasting result, and it dramatically lowers the risk of developing ingrown hairs.

You can actually do laser hair removal at any time of the year, but the most popular time for most people seems to be in the cooler months. This is primarily because with laser hair removal being done during spring or fall/winter, all those good results actually show up in the summer time, when people are most frequently out and about.

Below, you'll find some other reasons why so many people do laser hair removal in the cooler months of the year.

Cooler is better for laser hair removal

Most experienced therapists recommend that after laser hair removal, a patient avoids wearing tight clothing, swimming, or exercising to cause excessive sweating. It's much easier to avoid all these activities in winter time and the cooler months, when you can dress in loose-fitting clothing.

For the most part, people stay indoors during winter and the cooler months, thereby limiting the potential for being outside and sweating in the sun. While you're covering up in your loose clothes, the treated hairs are falling out, so the process occurs unobserved.

Easier to prepare for treatment

When you're preparing for laser hair removal, you'll have to stop waxing, shaving, and plucking. You'll also have to discontinue any tanning sessions you might have begun, because lasers can mistake tanned skin for skin that needs to be treated.

During the cooler months, most people don't undergo tanning sessions because a tan would look out of place at that time. With no other plans for body modification, laser hair removal is best scheduled in the winter time or in other cooler months.

Less exposure to the sun

Typically, people will have far less exposure to the sun during winter and the other cooler months, and that's ideal for laser hair removal. To get the best results from laser hair removal, it will be necessary to avoid exposure to the sun at least two weeks before and two weeks after treatment. It's much easier to avoid going out into the sunshine during winter and the other cool months.

Easier to stay covered up

During winter time, most people tend to bundle up, and on really cold days, it might be necessary to wear layered clothing. This is ideal for laser hair removal, because it can actually take up to two weeks for hair to fall out after being treated.

All you have to do is throw on some sweatpants, and let the process work through, so the treated hairs will fall out naturally. You won't feel as much like covering during summertime, and that's why summer is not a good time for laser hair removal.

The timing works out well for summer results

If you were to start your laser hair removal treatments in autumn and continue through winter, it will be very easy to get in a full series of sessions before summer time. It's easy to see why starting the process in winter time is much more desirable than starting laser hair removal in the summertime, and having to go several weeks into summer to complete the process.
