From bikinis to short shorts, summer in Salt Lake City is the prime time to show off your skin. For this reason, you might think that summer is also the perfect time for laser hair removal treatments, but it is far from.
The colder months are much better suited for Utah laser hair removal, so by the time next spring and summer come around, you will have flawlessly smooth skin. Still skeptical? Here are three reasons why contacting our Salt Lake City medical spa to start laser hair removal treatments in the fall is the perfect plan.

3 Reasons to Get Laser Hair Removal in the Fall

Skin Pigmentation

In the summer, you are more likely to be outside getting a tan or applying a sunless tanner to give your skin a nice sun-kissed glow. While this look is a summer must, it is a big no-no before a laser hair removal appointment.

The lasers that remove the hair do so by picking up a contrast between the pigmentation of your skin and the darkness of the hair. Utah medical spas will all agree treatment is less effective if your skin does not have a contrast with your hair. In the fall, your skin is more likely to be covered up and sunless tanner is getting a lot less use. While saying goodbye to your summer tan is hard, it makes for an ample time to start laser treatments.

Time Between Laser Hair Removal Treatments

If you are considering Utah laser hair removal, you must be able to commit the time it takes to complete the entire series of treatments. Typically, laser hair removal is completed in six to seven treatments with about a month or two in between each treatment. This means, if you start the sessions in the fall, you will be done with the process just in time for spring. If you wait too long to start your treatments, you will still be completing sessions in the spring. This means being mindful of sun exposure at a time when you will want to be embracing the warmer, longer days.

No Waxing of Threading During Treatments

You might be thinking that you can avoid the look of re-growth by waxing, threading, or tweezing the hair that grows back between laser hair removal treatments, but this is not allowed! You must let the hair grow into the follicle so the laser has the chance to hit the shaft of the hair and do its job. During the fall, long pants, maxi skirts and leggings are always part of the wardrobe. This means skipping a wax will not be as big of an issue as it would be in the warmer months.
