Winter is the time when you get to have an excuse to hibernate inside your home and cover yourself with as many clothes as you need. While most of us focus on keeping ourselves warm and cozy during the cold season, did you know that it is also the best time for laser hair removal?

Laser hair removal might be the least of the skincare priorities that have crossed your mind for the winter. However, doing this in winter allows you to prepare your skin discreetly for the season of tank tops, bikinis, beaches, and the summer sun. When plucking, shaving, and waxing unwanted hair is already so passé, laser hair removal can help you permanently reduce the growth of your unwanted hair. 

Benefits of laser hair removal during winter

Why laser hair removal is best done during winter, you wonder? Here’s why:

  • Less sun exposure

Summer season means that the warm sun is constantly calling you outside which may require you to wax your skin to look good on your bikinis and summer dresses. Before the laser hair removal treatment, you should not touch your hair follicles for at least 12 hours. You can give your skin a rest from shaving and waxing during winter, thus making it easier to prepare it for the laser hair removal treatment. 

After the treatment, we will advise you to avoid exposing your treated skin to the skin as it is more susceptible to sunburn and sun damage. And avoiding sun exposure is easier during winter when the cold temperature tempts you to curl up indoors. 

  • More time to recover

While laser hair removal appointments can be done in about 20 minutes, results can only be noticed after 2 treatments, with 4-6 sessions over six months, depending on your skin color. The treatment targets the natural skin pigment called melanin. This means that laser hair removal is more effective for individuals with high-color contrasts or dark hair color with lighter skin. For this length of time before the result starts to show up, wouldn’t it be ideal to start early in winter for your skin to be all ready come summer? 

  • Healthier skin this summer

Everyone wants to achieve that silky-smooth skin for the summer. And this is what laser hair removal offers you. Apart from that, there also no painful skin bumps or ingrown hair that you use to suffer from plucking and waxing unwanted hair. Start your laser hair removal treatment sessions early in winter and you can be assured that your skin is on its road to full recovery by summertime. 

  • Is laser hair removal treatment right for you?

According to Cosmopolitan, most individuals that undergo laser hair removal treatment report that about 90% of unwanted hair growth is permanently reduced. You also need to wear sunblock with high SPF for added protection against the sun.
