Most people start to think about cosmetic laser treatments like laser hair removal in the spring, when it becomes time to work on getting back your beach body. It’s tough to look great when you have ingrown hairs and razor burn. Perhaps this February’s spring-like temperatures in Chicago will get people considering laser hair removal before it’s too late! Winter laser hair removal is when you want to get started.

Why Early Winter Laser Hair Removal Is Your Best Bet

There are two simple reasons winter laser hair removal is your best bet:

  1. Laser hair removal takes time to complete
  2. Sun exposure is not recommended before or after treatment (it is risky)

People typically require roughly 6 treatments to achieve desired results. With treatments spaced every 6 weeks apart, to target the hair growth in the proper stages, total start-to-finish treatment time will take at least 36 weeks. By that math, you may even want to start sessions in the fall.

Fortunately, there is no reason you can’t wait more than 6 weeks between treatments. So, if you decide to take the summer off, you’re certainly able to do so.

Of course, all this presumes you live in Chicago where the frigid winters cause us to bundle up. Our friends at Pulse Laser in New York can relate. If you’re lucky enough to live in warmer climates that are sunny year-round, there’s probably never an ideal time for laser treatments.

If you’ve read this far, you may be wondering why we’re posting this advice in February. “You’re not going to get bookings,” you say. Well, that’s very observant of you. At Bare Tattoo & Hair Removal, our objective is to give you the best possible advice so you can make an informed decision that works with your lifestyle.

So, our advice is that early winter laser hair removal is the best time to get started with your treatments.
