While laser hair removal can be performed any time of year, it is widely accepted that winter is the best season to start your treatment series. When most people retreat indoors and indulge in comfort food on the couch, those ‘in-the-know’ take the cooler weather as an opportunity to transform themselves before summer.
Why is winter the best season for laser hair removal?
Laser hair removal is a great treatment to be done in winter as it requires some preparation. For example, waxing, depilatory cream, sun exposure and fake tan are prohibited two weeks prior to treatment. As this is not ideal for summer bikini weather, it’s much easier to prepare in the cooler months when you are all rugged up in cozy jumpers and jeans.
It is easier to avoid the sun
Many first-time laser hair removal clients don’t realise sun exposure before treatment is very detrimental. Sun exposure increases risk of inaccurate laser settings, which can damage your skin. This is why we strongly advise you avoid tanning, which makes winter an ideal time to begin your laser hair removal treatments.

You can stay covered post-treatment
Once you have received a treatment, the hair can take up to two weeks to fall out. This is not something you want to be rocking on the beach, but is quite alright when you are curled up in your yoga pants on the couch.
It is also advised to lock in your next treatment within four to six weeks, making the three months of winter the perfect period of time to get a few treatments in time for summer.
Take advantage of the winter months and get a head start on having smooth, hair-free skin now so you can rock that bikini with confidence.
