CAN I GET LASER HAIR REMOVAL IN THE SUMMER?
In understanding the pros and cons of laser hair removal, it’s important to understand that you can undergo laser hair removal in the summer. By any definition, laser hair removal requires a level of professional expertise, and in summer, health and safety issues are somewhat magnified.
For many men and women, “bikini” hair removal (or Brazilian) is an integral part of the summer season – it’s a time to wear skimpy bikinis or revealing swimwear. Being “hairless” at the beach or pool is essential as it makes most individuals feel more confident and beautiful, so understanding the laser procedure is important.
In general, there’s confusion about laser hair removal in the summer. From the actual clinic procedure, to the post treatment, gossip and chatter can often mask the effectiveness of the whole process. Just as an example, it’s certainly possible to get safe laser hair removal during summer months without worry.
No need to fear the sun during laser hair removal – lasers are more advanced than ever!
For the most part, myths about summer laser treatment arose from fears related to sun tanning and sun exposure after laser hair removal. While there are important facts to consider, there are also misconceptions that emerge, and these need to be addressed in order to provide clarity.
The concept of avoiding sun exposure (before and after laser hair removal) has its origins years ago when the laser technology had limitations. For example, lasers didn’t have much capacity to focus their wavelengths, and this presented limitations for targeting melanin and hair follicles.
Today, laser technology has advanced significantly, and the latest generation of lasers can target body hair very effectively without affecting the surrounding skin. It means that you can certainly get laser hair removal during summer, while doing your best to generally avoid sun exposure.
Can I get laser hair removal in the summer if I have a suntan?
If you do have a suntan, you can still get laser hair removal. With technology like Soprano® XL.
Soprano® XL laser technician can easily work with settings that effectively address darker skin. At the same time, because of the darker skin, the laser treatment cannot be as aggressive as usual.
Professional advice would be to wait with the sun tanning until after hair removal. But if you’ve already tanned, it’s not terrible – here the advice would be to stay away from the sun for at least two weeks prior to treatment. After all, any clinician would want to strive for the best results.

What you should be doing right after laser hair removal treatment?
