IS IT ADVISED TO HAVE LASER HAIR REMOVAL TREATMENTS IN SUMMER ?


It is recommended to wait at least two weeks before having Laser Hair Removal Treatments after being exposed to sun as you can burn with Laser and then advised to wait at least 2 weeks after treatments before heading back to the beach, as it can cause pigmentation. However, some people suggest waiting only 2-3 days, and others recommend waiting 24-48 hours before having a swim. One should apply a sunscreen at least SPF 30 when you go out, and make sure you choose a reputable product with protection against both UVA and UVB rays. A large enough hat should be worn to keep your face covered and long sleeves should be worn if possible.


After your treatment, your skin will be EXTRA sensitive and will need time to calm down. Excessive exposure to the sun at this time risks damage to your skin, so it's highly advisable to avoid sun tanning. The sun can cause hyperpigmentation on heat sensitive skin, so if you do have to go outdoors, put a good amount of a high SPF sunscreen on your skin for protection.

You can get laser hair removal at any time of the year – however, you do need to be more mindful of sun protection during summer. Smaller areas are recommended in the hotter months as they are easier to keep covered, but Autumn and Winter are ideal seasons to have Laser Hair Removal Treatments.
