When the temperature drops, leaves fall and stores start selling pumpkin-themed everything, it signals that autumn is finally here. These changes also signal that it’s the perfect time to start laser hair removal to get maximum results come spring time.
One of the key safety instructions for laser hair removal is to avoid sun exposure. Sunlight sensitizes the skin to the energy from the lasers, making possible side effects more likely. The sunshine of spring and summer can be too tempting for some, so autumn is an ideal season to begin laser hair removal treatments.
Staying out of the sun can be tricky in summer, but it becomes much easier in the fall. People cover up more as the temperature cools off, and they spend less time outdoors in direct sunlight. This makes it much easier to follow laser hair removal safety guidelines by protecting treated areas from sun exposure.
“Cool weather clothing helps clients better protect their skin from the sun, so fall is an excellent time to begin treatments,” said Graciela Vargas, Manager of Amerejuve’s Galleria location. “Timing your sessions to begin this time of year helps you get the most out of your laser hair removal and reduces that risk that you’ll forget to protect treated skin from the sun.”
Starting a series of laser hair removal sessions in the autumn also times the completion of the treatments perfectly. Most packages of laser hair removal include six treatments, spaced every 6-8 weeks depending on the areas. By beginning in the fall, many clients finish up their final sessions in the early spring. This finishes their package in time to shed those long sleeves, pants, and skirts for warmer weather and not have to worry about sun exposure on recently treated skin.
This timing also means men and women have reached maximum hair reduction, so they can begin reaping the rewards of laser hair removal. That first major shaving or waxing session of the spring is a thing of the past for those who have gotten laser hair removal.
