There’s no season better for laser hair removal than winter. That’s a surprising fact to most - after all, in the winter you’re mostly covered up, so if you’re looking to get hair removed for aesthetic reasons, why do it when you don’t have any skin exposed?
What’s more, as all of us know, Winnipeg winters are cold! You’d think that having a little extra hair might be a good thing - for insulation (though that extra hair isn’t going to do you much good in -40°C). So why would winter be the best time for hair removal? Read on, and you’ll find out.
Less Sun Is Better
Laser hair removal and sun tans, sadly, do not mix. Laser hair removal can’t be performed on sunburned, freshly tanned skin - even sun-kissed skin isn’t great for hair removal. In the winter, you’re far less likely to end up with an unintentional tan, so it makes it a much more suitable season in which to have the treatment done.
What’s more, your skin is more susceptible to UV rays after laser hair removal. That makes sunburn more likely. Get laser hair removal in the summer, and you’ll have to resist the temptation to go sunbathing at Grand Beach when it’s 30 degrees celsius out - in the winter, that problem is pretty much non-existent.
No more Waxing
In order to get the best results from laser hair removal, there’s no waxing, plucking or depilatory creams. You can however shave as often as you like and we ask that you come cleanly shaven the day of your appointment.
A lot of people use those hair removal techniques during the summer months, when more bare skin is exposed. In the winter, it’s easier to be a bit more lax with your hair removal treatments - you can use long clothing to your advantage, unless of course it’s on your face, but then as we said, you can go ahead and shave. Many women shave their faces now anyway. It removes hair, debris, excess oil, and dead skin cells which can brighten the look of skin. This helps makeup go on smoothly and last longer.
Time Is On Your Side
Laser hair removal isn’t a one-and-done practice. You’re going to need between 8 - 12 appointments, depending on the person. The treatments are spaced 4 - 6 weeks apart. By starting the process in the wintertime, hopefully your hair removal will be done by the time the next summer comes around again.
With this knowledge in hand, it’s clear why getting laser hair removal done in the wintertime is the best option.
