Winter is a Great Time for Laser Hair Removal

During the winter, most people are thinking about protecting their skin from the cold, dry weather, but in fact, it’s also a great time for laser hair removal. Red Deer men and women who are preparing for a vacation down South, or simply wish to remove unwanted hair before the warm weather arrives here in Canada, should consider laser hair removal during the winter.

Easier to Avoid Excessive Sun Exposure

During the winter, Canadians typically have less exposure to harmful ultraviolet (UV) sun rays. Shorter days mean less sunlight exposure, as well. This, of course, goes a long way in protecting your skin after a laser hair treatment, because avoiding excessive sun exposure is one of the most important guidelines to follow after a removal session. The rule is that excessive sun exposure should be avoided for some time prior to your session and one week following the session, depending if there is tanning in the skin. This means you should plan your hair removal sessions with ample time around a beach vacation. Additionally, you should also apply sunblock to treated areas daily, even during the wintertime. Laser and Skin Care MedSpa have a variety of healthy easy to wear sunblock for men and women.

Avoid the Spring & Summer Rush

Beat the rush for laser hair removal! Complete hair removal can take several sessions to achieve, and you’ll have to wait six to eight weeks between each session. So, it can be a lengthy process that’s best started as early as possible. Starting your removal process during the winter will give you a head start on total hair removal, and ensure that you will be ready when the warmer months arrive. Laser hair removal can be done year round, however it’s easier for exposed areas during the Fall to Spring time frame in Alberta.

Optimal Hair Growth

For the best laser hair removal results, your hair must be in the active growth phase prior to the treatment. This will allow the laser to better target the root of each hair follicle. However, not all hair will be in the active growth phase at the same time, so multiple removal sessions are required. Winter is a great time to treat hair on the legs and arms, as these areas are typically covered by clothing.
