You might not be thinking about wearing shorts, t-shirts, and swimsuits this time of year, but winter is actually the perfect time to prepare for upcoming summer months. During winter, your skin pigment is typically lighter, which helps to increase the effectiveness of laser hair removal. You’ll thank yourself in a few months when you are swimsuit, short, and tank-top ready!
Laser Hair Removal
The technology in laser hair removal is largely based on skin tone, so having an even, tan line–free surface to work with means better, faster results. “Laser hair removal is best to do in the winter because there is less sun exposure than other times of the year,” says New York City dermatologist Paul Jarrod Frank, M.D., who sees permanent results in patients within four sessions, each around three weeks apart. “The laser targets pigment, therefore having the least amount of melanin makes the treatment easier, safer, and most effective.” Andréa Young, co-owner of Manhattan’s Beam Laser Spa, confirms that her practice sees yearly clients who strategically book sessions to coincide with the cooler, darker months.
