Can I Have Laser Hair Removal in The Summer?

In a word, yes! Summer is all about skin and since laser hair removal offers a lasting, hair free and carefree appearance, it’s a popular treatment this time of year. With laser hair removal, there is none of the annoyance of a 5 o’clock shadow, little red bumps or ingrown hairs.  For many of our Odessa clients, laser hair removal is the preferred method of hair removal.

However, it’s important to note that if you plan to undergo laser hair removal this summer, you must stay out of the sun. Any area of the body that you plan to do laser hair removal on cannot be exposed to sunlight, as this treatment cannot be performed on tanned skin. If your skin is naturally darker, however, never fear; we have the lasers to accommodate all skin types and tones.

This doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors – it simply means you must be great care to apply (and re-apply!) an SPF50, and preferably keep on some layers. For instance, if you plan to do laser hair removal on your arms and underarms, keep a light cardigan on while outdoors. It will be well worth it when you’re finally hair free and carefree!

Laser Hair Removal is typically recommended in packages of five, scheduled several weeks apart, in order to disable all of the active hair follicles and provide lasting hair reduction.
