Truth be told, there’s no reason you can’t get laser hair removal any time of the year. That said, if you’ve been toying with the idea and are looking for some pointers on when the best time for laser hair removal is, you might want to plan for this winter. Here’s why.
LHR Results Don’t Happen Overnight
Laser hair removal takes some time before you see your full outcome. In fact, most people need about 6 to 9 treatment sessions spaced several weeks apart to maximize laser hair removal results.
If you schedule your first sessions during the winter, you can cover up those legs with cozy sweatpants and forget about waxing or even shaving if you don’t feel like it. Come next summer, you’ll be well on your way to smoother, effortless skin.
You Can’t Be BFFs with the Sun
Start your laser hair removal treatment in the winter, and you won’t have to worry about banishing yourself indoors while everyone else is poolside.
Unfortunately, the sun is not your friend during laser hair removal treatments. Not only can your skin become more sensitive to sunlight and therefore sunburn during LHR, but getting a tan can also slow down the process and could cause some complications.
Take a Tip from Nature
Fall and winter are the times of year for LHR when nature goes out with the old to make way for the new. So why not follow suit and do something nice for yourself this winter so you can feel renewed and refreshed come spring?
