When it comes to autumn, you may fall into one of two camps. In the first camp, fall lovers embrace pumpkin spice lattes and cozy sweaters. In the second camp, fall haters cling to short sleeves until they can no longer deny that summer is over.
No matter which of these camps you fall into, there’s one thing you have to appreciate about the fall season: It’s the best time to get laser hair removal.
Whether you’re trying to make the most of autumn or you’re awaiting summer with bated breath, now is the time to start your journey to hair free skin – read on to learn why!
Why Fall and Winter Are the Ultimate Laser Seasons
So why is autumn the ideal laser season? There are a few reasons, but they all tie into the fact that getting laser hair removal in summer isn’t ideal. Let’s explore that in more detail:
Less Sun Exposure
Both before and after getting laser hair removal, sun exposure can be disastrous. It’s important that your skin is at its base color when undergoing treatment. Before getting lasered, sun exposure can darken the skin which can compromise your results.
After the treatment, your skin is more sensitive than normal, so exposing it to the sun comes with a greater risk of developing sunburns or hyperpigmentation.
In the fall, it’s easier to cover up most treatment areas, so even on the occasional sunny day, you’re at much less of a risk.
That said, if you’re undergoing laser hair removal on your face or any other body part that is often exposed, make sure to keep on wearing sunscreen for protection, regardless of the season!
For a few days after your laser treatment, any exposure to heat can increase your chances of experiencing adverse effects like redness and stinging.
That’s why we always caution our clients to stay out of the sauna or steam room after getting laser hair removal. It’s also important to avoid intense exercise that causes your body temperature to rise.
In the summer, even going for a short walk can cause overheating and potentially lead to irritation, which wouldn’t be an issue in the fall and winter.
Get Smooth by Summer
Wouldn’t it be wonderful to not have to think about hair removal when summer finally rolls around?
The precise time frame for seeing laser hair removal results varies widely from person to person and even body part to body part. That said, many clients will achieve their desired level of smoothness if they come in consistently over the course of both fall and winter.
In other words, if you start your laser hair removal journey in September or October, you could be done by the time June rolls around! That means being able to put on a swimsuit or shorts and a tank top at any time, without a second thought.
Take Time for Repair
Another great way to benefit from med spa visits in the fall is to undergo a skin-beautifying treatment that will stimulate repair. Summer can take a serious toll on the skin since exposure to the sun speeds up the aging process and can lead to hyperpigmentation.
As with laser hair removal, those exceptional skin renewing services also require that you practice good sun protection after undergoing treatment. Since this is easier to do in the autumn, it truly is the best time to renew the skin and repair the damage from summer’s sunny onslaught.
