Tanning and Laser Treatments

Table of Contents

Please do not use sunbeds before, during, or after your laser hair removal session.

The reason for this is that we need your skin tone to remain stable throughout your course of treatments, any fluctuations in skin tone during your course may lead to complications depending on the laser settings we use. 

We rely on keeping your skin tone the same throughout your course to prevent this occurring, any changes in skin tone will impact on the settings we can use during your laser treatment

When you come in for your initial consultation we assess your skin tone and perform a patch test with a setting that is safe and effective. This setting is based on the density of your hair and the color of your skin at the time of your consultation. 

How Developing a Tan Can Affect Your Skin During Your Course of Treatment

Laser energy absorbs into anything with dark pigment, that’s why laser works on black and brown hairs and why it doesn’t work on blond or red hair. If you have recently developed a tan your skin will be full of melanin. The risk of developing pigmentation, if we perform a treatment, is extremely high at this point. Your skin will be full of new active melanin and has the potential to absorb too much heat and energy from the laser in a negative way, if pigmentation occurs it can be extremely sore and irritating and it can leave marks behind that can take months to fade. Laser is an extremely safe treatment if done when skin is stable.

Absorption of Laser Into Skin

Naturally darker skin should not be confused with tanned skin. Clients with darker skin can absolutely have laser hair removal without these complications as a different wavelength is used that does not absorb into melanin in the same way.  

We would strongly recommend you do not use sunbeds if you are considering laser hair removal. Developing a tan during your course of treatment can have a major impact on your results.

If you plan a holiday to the sun we would recommend, you use a high quality sunblock (SPF 50+) try to avoid exposing your treatment areas to long periods of sun exposure and to try and cover them as much possible.  

Avoid sunbeds during laser hair removal treatment 

 We do not take any risks with our lasers and if we feel your skin is too tanned to have treatment we will recommend you allow your tan to fade until we treat you again. This is for your own safety.
