If you are fed up with wasting your time with tweezing, waxing and shaving unwanted hair, then here is some excellent news! January is the best month to get your body ready for summer. Following are some reasons that will surely convince you why January is the perfect time to start laser hair removal.

Procedure Takes Time

 Some areas of your body require 4 to 8 laser hair removal sessions. The number of sessions needed for best results depends on several factors, such as the growth cycle of hair, the part your body that is being treated and the thickness of the hair.

All hair grows in three stages: growth, regression, and resting. However, not all hairs are actively growing in the same area at the same time.

The laser hair removal procedure works by damaging hair follicles that are growing actively at the time of treatment. The specific area that is being treated may require several laser removal sessions because some hairs will be in resting or regression at any particular time. Therefore, the client is recommended to wait for a few weeks in between laser hair removal session on the same area.

With this being said, if you will start laser hair removal treatment in January, then this will give you time to complete your course of treatment before summer.

Sun Exposure

While receiving laser treatments, it is recommended to avoid exposure to the sun due to skin sensitivity.  Therefore, it is ideal to go for laser hair removal in January because this is the time of year when you bundle up your body under layers of clothing, protecting it from the sun.

Skin Tone

Laser hair removal works best when there is a color contrast between the hair and skin.  This is because the laser directly targets the hair follicle’s pigment. Therefore, the results are more optimal and safer than if the skin is tan. Having less color in the skin minimizes the risk of any skin color changes, for example, freckles, dark spots or hyperpigmentation.


The Laser hair removal treatment is an expensive process and requires some budgeting if you want to enjoy life-long results. Thus, another important reason to start your laser hair removal procedure in January is that you can take advantage of deals and discounts.
