WHY AUTUMN IS A GOOD TIME FOR LASER HAIR REMOVAL

Updated: Oct 30, 2023

Autumn is often considered a good time for laser hair removal for several reasons:

  1. Reduced Sun Exposure: Laser hair removal works best on individuals with lighter skin and darker hair. Sun exposure can make your skin more sensitive and increase the risk of side effects like burns or hyperpigmentation. In autumn, the days are shorter, and people tend to spend less time outdoors, which can help reduce sun exposure. It's important to avoid direct sun exposure before and after laser hair removal treatments to ensure the best results and minimize the risk of complications.



  1. Avoiding Tan: A tan can make it more challenging for the laser to distinguish between your skin and hair, potentially reducing the effectiveness of the treatment. By scheduling laser hair removal in autumn, you can ensure that your skin is at its natural tone, making it easier for the laser to target the hair follicles accurately.

  2. Limited Chlorine and Saltwater Exposure: During the summer months, people often spend time in chlorinated pools or in the ocean, which can be harsh on the skin. These environments can lead to skin dryness, irritation, and sensitivity, making it less suitable for laser hair removal. Autumn provides a break from such activities, allowing your skin to recover and heal, which can improve the outcomes of the treatment.

  3. Preparing for the Next Season: By getting laser hair removal in the autumn, you can prepare for the following season when you might want to show off smooth, hair-free skin, such as during the winter holidays or early spring. Laser hair removal typically requires multiple sessions, and spacing them out during the fall and winter can help you achieve desired results by the time the next warm-weather season arrives.

  4. Avoiding Excessive Sweating: Summer can be hot, leading to increased sweating. Excessive sweating can potentially irritate the skin after a laser hair removal session, as well as increase the risk of infection. Cooler autumn temperatures reduce the likelihood of sweating and related complications.

  5. Hair Growth Cycles: Laser hair removal is most effective when targeting hair in the anagen (growth) phase. Hair grows in cycles, and treatments need to be spaced apart to target hair in various stages of growth. Scheduling your initial treatments in the fall can help ensure that you've had multiple sessions by the time the next summer season arrives, reducing hair regrowth.
