Laser Hair Removal for the Winter Months

With the holiday season coming near, the greatest gift you can offer yourself is hair-free skin. Laser hair removal is fairly popular during the cold months, not only for the beauty effect but also for the comfort that it brings.

As a result, if you’ve been thinking of having your hair permanently removed, now’s the time. Dr. Ostad offers laser hair removal services in the weeks leading up to the colder winter months so that you can look your best and feel confident. 

What Is Laser Hair Removal?

Laser hair removal is a procedure that uses a concentrated light beam (i.e., a laser) to remove hair from specific parts of your body. The treatment is recommended for those who want to remove unwanted hair in a quick and painless way with long-lasting results. 

During the procedure, the light emitted by the laser will be absorbed by the hair pigment (the melanin), which will convert it into heat. As a result, this will damage the hair follicle, preventing the hair from growing in the future. This will eventually leave smooth and hair-free skin behind.

Benefits of Laser Hair Removal during the Winter Months

There are several reasons why you should consider laser hair removal during the winter months. These may include:

1. Reduced Sun Exposure

Laser hair removal works more effectively on untanned skin. In the winter, people tend to have less sun exposure, which means their skin is generally lighter. This contrast between the skin and hair makes it easier for the laser to target the hair follicles without affecting the surrounding skin.  

2. Consistent Treatment Schedule/ Summer Prep 

Laser hair removal typically requires multiple sessions, spaced several weeks apart. Starting in winter allows for a consistent treatment schedule without interruptions due to vacations and outdoor activities that are more common in the summer. Starting these sessions in the winter ensures that most of the hair reduction occurs before swimsuit session. 

3. Less Risk of Sun Damage

Laser hair removal can make the skin more sensitive to sunlight. Getting the treatment in winter reduces the risk of sun damage because people are more likely to cover up and use protective clothing, minimizing direct exposure to the sun.
