Laser hair removal is a growing trend in the UK and here at Tej & Co, it is something we are very fond of. Winter weather tends to bring about a hibernation phase in terms of hair growth as we all like to leave a little more insulation and when the weather brightens, our clothing patterns change, with more sun exposure and that’s when we look to remove hair, however, the rigorous process of Summer hair removal can be all but avoided by an extremely effective winter therapy, Laser Hair Removal.

But why is Laser Hair Removal a winter therapy?

The way laser hair removal works is by focusing an intensely concentrated beam of ultraviolet light down through the hair shaft (the visible hair above the skin) to the hair follicle, in order to target the melanin, or pigment, in the hair. Laser hair removal works best on dark hair on light skin, and since there is less sun exposure these wintery days and your skin will most likely have lost most of its summer tan, you will get the best results from your treatment.

Here are some other considerations that may help you in your decision to get Laser Hair Removal in the winter months:

Tanned Skin is burnt skin, if you have a tan, there is a higher risk of burning and scarring during treatment which can almost always be avoided when treatment is completed in winter months

  • We do not operate laser hair removal when sunbed use and self-tanning lotions have been used as these increase the risk to the user, in the winter you’re less prone to have used these, so there is a larger available time for treatment to take place.
  • When returning from holiday, it is important to allow at least 6 weeks before treatment to allow your tan to fade
  • Hair must be shaved before treatment to allow the laser to target the melanin and must not be left to grow for example when wax treatments are undertaken.

Here at Tej & Co, we operate the latest Laser Hair Removal IPL treatments and always carry out a consultation before initiating treatments, drawing up a detailed plan to outline your requirements. Laser Hair Removal is extremely effective and with treatments every 4-6 weeks, treated hair will begin to shed 2-3 weeks after treatments, with a course of treatments required due to hair growth cycles. With good aftercare, the results of IPL can be permanent!
