Now that summer is over and sun tans are fading, it is the perfect time to consider starting laser hair removal. Laser hair removal should not be performed on tanned skin due to the risk of the laser picking up on the increased pigment in the skin and burning it. Therefore, now that summer holidays have come to an end it is a great time to start.
A course of laser hair removal takes around a year to complete: sessions are typically 6-8 weeks apart for most body areas and 4-6 weeks apart for the face. If holidays in the sun are planned over the winter months, areas being lasered should be protected from sun exposure for four weeks following treatment. If you are tanned, a minimum of four weeks must be waited before having further laser hair removal treatments.
Laser hair removal can help you reach the hair removal results you desire, whilst saving you time and money on temporary hair removal solutions.
