Can you have laser hair removal with fake tan?

Do you love to indulge in tanning products but not sure how they would impact your next laser hair removal treatment? Can you have laser hair removal with fake tan? The answer is critical for those who use fake tanning products. But also wish to benefit from laser hair removal treatments. In this article I am offering guidance to those patients who love wearing fake tan but wouldn’t want to compromise their skin’s safety.

Safe laser hair removal 

Laser hair removal has emerged as a popular and effective solution for men and women seeking to save time on shaving. And combat issues like ingrowing hairs and hormonal facial hair. As one of the leading providers of laser hair removal in London, we understand the importance of this treatment in restoring confidence. And achieving an attractive, smooth body. Our focus on safe laser hair removal ensures that each session is tailored to individual needs. Offering the best results with utmost care. 

Can you have laser hair removal with fake tan?

The short answer is no. But why is that? The principle behind laser hair removal is the targeting of hair follicles by a specific wavelength of light. This light is absorbed by the pigment in the hair, effectively destroying the follicle to prevent future hair growth. However, when you have a fake tan, the tanning products can also absorb this light. This absorption not only reduces the efficacy of the laser treatment but can also lead to adverse skin reactions. The laser may target the pigment in the skin rather than just the hair follicle, potentially causing burns or discolouration.

Preparing for your treatment

For the best laser hair removal experience, it’s essential to prepare your skin properly. This includes avoiding the use of fake tan products for at least 3 weeks before your treatment. Typically, we recommend that you refrain from applying fake tan at least three weeks before your laser hair removal appointment. This gap allows the tan to fade sufficiently. Ensuring that the laser can target the hair follicles more effectively and safely.

Additionally, it’s important to follow other pre-treatment advice. Such as avoiding sun exposure and not waxing or plucking hairs, as these can also affect the results of your laser treatment.

Embracing effective hair removal

Investing in laser hair removal is a decision to embrace a more confident and attractive self. While the interaction with fake tan can be a minor inconvenience, the overall benefits of laser hair removal far outweigh this. By following the recommended guidelines, you can ensure safe and effective treatment, leading to long-lasting, smooth skin.
