As you hunker down under layers of fleece and flannel this winter, the farthest thing from your mind is probably your bikini line. But if you can spare a moment in your hibernating schedule, listen up, because the winter is actually an ideal time to consider grooming treatments like laser hair removal.
There’s no way around it—the hot summer sun can be a nuisance for any laser treatment, laser hair reduction especially. For starters, lasers work best on skin that isn’t tanned. Since the lasers for hair removal target the dark pigment of your hair follicle, not the skin around it, too much melanin in your skin can make it harder for the laser to detect your pigment, decreasing the effectiveness of your treatment. Even worse, tanning can actually increase your risk for potential side effects, such as skin lightening.
And don’t forget about your valuable time. Your hair grows in stages, not all at once, meaning that effective laser hair removal takes months to achieve. For smooth, hair-free skin in time for summer, you need to start treatments months in advance. Typically, we see optimal results with a series of six treatments spaced four to six weeks apart.
