Why Fall & Winter Are The Best Times For Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is a safe, effective way to remove hair from anywhere on your body. It’s virtually painless, and doesn’t take much time per session. But, it can take a few sessions to eliminate all of your hair, for a number of reasons. That’s why at Spa Nala we suggest starting your laser hair removal journey in the fall or winter if you’re looking for flawlessly smooth skin for the summertime!


Of course, laser hair removal is beneficial anytime of year, but to be beach-ready, you’ll want to get a head start and schedule today. Here’s why.

Hair Grows In Stages

Body hair grows in four distinct stages, and lasers can only target hair which is in a single stage – the actively growing stage. This means that in a single session, we can only target ¼ or less of the hair you have on your body.


This means you’ll need multiple treatment sessions to effectively remove your body hair and get the body you desire. At Spa Nala, we offer a package of seven treatments, with free maintenance for one year after completion of your seventh treatment.

Your Schedule May Dictate Time Involved

One session of laser hair removal at Spa Nala is usually completed in less than one hour. But depending on the size of the area, it could take as few as five minutes to complete.


For men and women, common treatment areas include:

  • Face
    • Eyebrows
    • Top of nose
    • Lip
    • Neck
    • Chin
    • Ear lobe
  • Upper body
    • Shoulders
    • Breast
    • Back
    • Underarms
    • Arms
    • hands
  • Lower body
    • Abdomen
    • Pubic area
    • Bikini line
    • Buttocks
    • Thighs
    • Legs
    • Toes


Depending on what you all need done, you may or may not have time for it all depending on your schedule, which can extend treatment time.

Less Sun Exposure

For laser hair removal, less tanned skin works best. While our laser works with all skin types, it’s most effective when you don’t have a tan or darkened, whether from the sun, tanning beds or tanning lotions. This means fall and winter are best as the sun tends to be at its lowest angle and our skin receives the least direct light this way, leading to lighter skin in general.

Avoid The Rush

Of course, one of the best reasons to get laser hair removal done in the fall or winter is because no one else is thinking far enough ahead! That means plenty of people will be scheduling laser hair removal appointments in March, April, May and even June, so by getting in early you’ll be able to easily schedule your appointments around your life.
