Laser hair removal is one of the most popular cosmetic procedures performed in our clinic. Unwanted hair grows on various parts of the body. Often, individuals find the presence of hair in certain regions of the body unsightly or embarrassing. In other instances, individuals wish to lessen the need for shaving, waxing, tweezing, or other methods of hair removal. Most commonly, laser hair removal is used to reduce hair growth on the face, back, legs, forearm, underarm, and bikini area. However, laser hair removal can also be used to permanently reduce or thin out the amount of hair on any area of the body. The results from a laser hair removal procedure depend on your skin tone, your hair type, and the growth phase of the hair being treated.

Summer weather and laser removal don't go together. Here's the most frequently asked question:
Is it safe to be exposed to the sun while having laser hair removal? How Long Should I Stay out of the Sun After Laser Hair Removal?
It is not a good idea to get a tan or sun exposure while getting laser hair removal. Sun exposure is discouraged while getting laser hair removal, or any other type of laser procedure. The reasoning is simple: laser treatments generally cause inflammation, and inflammation can easily lead to hyper-pigmentation Sun exposure increases skin color tone, increases the likelihood of getting hyper-pigmentation, and prolongs the time needed for the hyper-pigmentation to resolve. So, if not only are you more likely to get hyper-pigmentation if you have had a great deal of sun exposure, but you are also likely to have it longer than usual since you are tan.
Although we know that doing laser hair removal to get ready for the summer is a goal for many people, it is important to do it right and take precautions to minimize the possibility of complications so that you can enjoy your results throughout the entire summer season.
While receiving any laser treatment, it is highly recommended to avoid sun exposure at least 2 weeks prior and after. It is best to be at your base skin tone while receiving laser to get the maximum results possible. Lasers are attracted to pigment and if we have had recent sun exposure, the laser will detect the tan and heat from the skin and leave possible burning. Moreover, wearing sunscreen daily and protective clothing in areas to be treated are imperative to have a safe and effective treatment. Skin type, tendency for sunburn, and use of certain types of medications may affect your risk.
