Laser Hair Removal In Summer?

When the summer is on its way, a lot of people suddenly realize that they need to get ready for the "right" beach look towards their summer holiday. The "right" look often includes hair free body areas and the body areas free from ingrown hair. The best solution to it is laser hair removal, but there is a few things to bear in mind.

It is better to start getting ready in advance as you are not allowed to expose the areas of concern to the direct sun 4 weeks before and after a laser treatment. Why? You do not want to increase the risk of getting burnt during your holiday or get hyperpigmentation on the vulnerable skin that has been treated with a laser. The sun promotes heat and further activates melanocytes inside the skin that has lately been exposed to the heat from a laser. So, stay away from the direct sun exposure for a minimum of four weeks before and after the treatment.

Often the areas, such as underarms and intimate areas can be lasered less than 4 weeks towards your beach holiday as they do not get direct sun exposure easily. Areas that are more vulnerable, such as face, legs, arms, back and chest, must be considered with extra care as they are very difficult to protect from the UV while spending time on the beach. If you decided to go ahead with a laser hair removal treatment in summer, make sure that you have those 4 before-and-after-safety-weeks and use a minimum SPF50 sun protection at all times.

You are welcome to book a laser patch test and a consultation online. Bear in mind that a patch test must be carried out 72 hours before the actual treatment.
