Laser Hair Removal in Winter: Everything You Need to Know

Why Should You Get Laser Hair Removal in Winter?

Thanks to the cold weather and low UV, the best seasons for laser hair removal are winter and fall. These are the key benefits of getting your laser hair removal during these colder seasons:

Your Skin is Probably at Its Base Color

For laser to be safe, comfortable, and effective, your skin needs to be at its base color. Whether you’re a self-tanner aficionado or a devotee to the sun, letting go of that tan is easier when the UV index is low and no one expects you to look like a bronzed goddess. So embrace your base tone, and get started with winter laser hair removal. 

Your Skin Can Recover More Easily

In summer, heat and sun exposure can exacerbate the side effects of laser hair removal, potentially leading to adverse reactions. In winter, staying protected is easier, so the recovery process can be faster and more straightforward.

Be Smooth for Summer

It usually takes several sessions of laser hair removal to achieve dramatic results. If you’re hoping to achieve that total smoothness by a specific date, it’s important to start your treatments with plenty of time to spare. For many, that specific date is in the summer when you may want to show off more skin. We usually recommend playing it safe and starting your laser in the autumn, but starting in winter may still give you enough time

Aftercare for Laser Hair Removal in Winter

It’s incredibly important to follow your provider’s recommendations after laser hair removal, so your skin can recover quickly with minimal side effects. Here are a few additional considerations for aftercare in the winter:

  • Avoid hot tubs, saunas, hot yoga, and any other sources of intense heat for a day or two following treatment. 
  • For a day or two after your laser appointment, avoid wearing tight thermal layers over the treated area. 
  • Keep the area moisturized using gentle, fragrance-free products.
