Laser Hair Removal – Why Winter Is the Best Time

During the cold winter months, you are probably covering every inch of skin you can in order to stay warm and hydrated. The last thing you may be thinking about is a laser hair removal treatment, but there are several reasons Atlantis Clinic suggest winter is the perfect time to have yours done.

What Makes Winter Ideal For Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal by Atlantis Clinic is a safe, painless, and effective way to get rid of unwanted body hair. Hair that is in its active growth phase is the best target, though several treatments are needed to see the best results. Hair that is allowed to grow out is the best for those seeking laser removal treatments, and winter time is the best time to let your hair grow without facing social pressure to shave those areas.

Usually, laser hair removal requires 5 to 7 sessions in order to be considered complete or the area hair-free. In the summer, it can be hard to find a salon with available booking slots, which may mean that more time than recommended goes by between each session. This extended time frame can slow the removal process. In the winter, you can get a head start and be hair free by the time summer rolls around.

Also, tanning products and direct sunlight are a big no-no after laser treatments. By booking your treatments in the winter, you get to avoid the temptation altogether. You should always wear sunscreen even in the winter, but since its cold outside, that means your treatment areas will have even less exposure to the sun which will allow your skin to heal much more quickly.

The Benefits of Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective way to get rid of unwanted body hair forever. Before you start your treatments, you should stop waxing, shaving or anything else that reduces the hair growth in the targeted treatment areas. Since you will need several sessions to target all of your hair, and lasers work best on follicles in their active growth cycles, it is best to allow your hair to grow out for the best result.

After each treatment, it’s important to protect your skin from the sun and other elements. Winter is the perfect time since most people already try to stay bundled up and hydrated during the colder months. Also, since lasers work on the skin by passing through it, some skin tones may need additional treatments to be effective, starting in the winter ensures that you will have that smooth beach-ready body in time for the summer break.

Why Opt For Winter Laser Treatments

Thanks to the reduced amount of exposure to the sun and its harmful UV rays, it’s easier for patients to follow the aftercare requirements following a laser hair removal session. As a result, the sessions tend to be more effective and have longer lasting results than those taken in the summer months.
