4 Reasons Why Winter is the Best Time for Laser Tattoo Removal

The colder temperatures have a lot of us missing the longer, warmer days of summer. However, winter is actually the prefect time for many beauty treatments at Salt Lake City medical spas – including laser tattoo removal. Read our post about laser hair removal during cold winter months here.

Learn four reasons why wintry weather makes it the ideal time to erase unwanted body art at Inklifters at Aesthetica Medical Spa.

1. It’s easier to shun the sun.

At Aesthetica, we are always preaching how avoiding the sun will benefit your skin. But it is particularly important to avoid direct sunlight after laser tattoo removal. Doing so gives the treated skin a better chance to heal.

Salt Lake City laser tattoo removal patients should wear SPF 40 sunscreen on the treated area and avoid tanning for a minimum of 14 days, depending on how long it takes for the skin to heal completely. With our high elevation and predisposition to outdoor summer activities in Utah, winter conditions often mean less sun exposure, making it a great time to start the laser tattoo removal process.

2. Winter can keep your head above water.

Clients should be careful when exposing the treated area to water for several days or weeks after laser tattoo removal treatment.

Clients will need to keep the treated area out of the direct stream of water – even in the shower – for the first few days after laser tattoo removal. Completely submerging the area shouldn’t be done until it is completely healed, often takes several weeks after treatment. This means fewer lake, pool and beach days, which could disrupt summer vacation plans and weekend getaways.

3. Things may get hairy.

Clients should avoid shaving the treated area until the skin has completely healed after laser tattoo removal.

This could be a bit of a challenge for someone who doesn’t want to go au natural while removing a leg tattoo, for example. Winter’s long pants, skirts and tights keep your hairy secret under wraps while you erase unwanted body art at Inklifters.

4. Gives you time before next bikini season.

Some of us prefer to hibernate during the colder months. But we often overlook the opportunity winter gives us to tackle beauty and fitness to-dos to prepare for the next pool season.

Picosure laser tattoo removal requires fewer treatments than older q-switched laser systems, but you will still need to dedicate several months to complete the process. Beginning tattoo removal at Inklifters now can make sure you are ready to show off your newly restored skin when temperatures heat up.
