This month’s beauty spotlight focuses on why autumn is the best time for laser hair removal – and how salons can cash in on this! With technological advances making permanent hair removal more accessible for people of all skin types and budgets, demand is booming. And with autumn approaching, now is the time to invest in the latest laser and IPL equipment and training for your staff to make sure you can make the most of the busiest time of year.
Summer is winding down, and the season of thick tights, wooly jumpers and covering up is looming. Excess or unwanted hair becomes more apparent for most people over the summer period; with many meticulously shaving, waxing, plucking and even epilating (ouch!). These hair removal methods are often painful, which need repeating often and can cause rashes and ingrown hairs. Laser and IPL hair removal offers a permanent alternative, which contrary to popular belief can save clients time and money in the long run. According to Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics laser hair removal was the 3rd most popular non-invasive cosmetic procedure in 2016, for women and men.
Why is autumn the best time for laser hair removal?
As we look towards to cooler seasons, the relief of avoiding the inconvenience of hair removal is often welcomed. However, most clients will be thinking of how great it would be if next summer there would no more shaving rash after hastily prepping because the sun has made an appearance, and more spontaneous outfit choices!
Autumn is the best time to begin hair removal, as it is an ongoing process which can be completed for the following spring. Furthermore, prior to treatments it is best to avoid the sun and tanning. Between treatments clients will have to keep their skin covered, as it will be more sensitive, which makes the cooler months optimum time. To get the most from permanent hair removal, clients should also refrain from removing any hair by the roots, such as waxing, plucking or epilating. This is because for the hair to be successfully removed, the laser needs a root to target.
Men continue to embrace numerous tactics to ‘manscape’ and ‘maintain’ such as laser hair removal, accounting for nearly 1 in 10 clients in 2016 getting non-invasive procedures as noted by Cosmetic Surgery National Data Bank Statistics – make sure you don’t miss out on this emergent market.
