Summer weather means shorts and bathing suits. Both women and men want to look their best, and laser hair removal is quite popular during the summer months. However, it is important to know which type of hair removal is best for you, when to have it done, and how to protect yourself before and after treatment.
Prepare for the Season
Most people are covered throughout the winter, reducing exposure to the sun; during springtime, the weather can fluctuate between hot and cold and rainy and clear, so people are not spending as much time outdoors. Since removal takes multiple sessions, the last session can be completed before bathing-suit weather. This is especially important for those wanting to avoid shaving bikini areas or men with excessive back hair.
The first 48 to 72 hours after laser hair removal is critical for staying out of direct sunlight, regardless of the season. It is important to stay out of the sun for at least a month before laser removal and at least two weeks after removal. Sunscreen with zinc is your best defense against sun exposure both before and after laser removal. Not only does it absorb and reflect UVA and UVB rays, it can be applied multiple times throughout the day.
Laser hair removal continues to be a safe and convenient way to remove hair. Knowing which type of laser removal to choose, what season to begin treatments, and how to protect yourself will help your laser removal be a success.
