Modern day lifestyles can be demanding and tiring. From challenging careers and expectant children, there are sometimes not enough hours in the day to complete everything on your to-do list. But no matter what your lifestyle is and how much there is to juggle, we all want to look and feel our best. For many men and women, this includes having glowing tanned skin which is smooth, silky and hair free.

Tanning changes your natural skin pigmentation. Whether you choose to tan in the natural sunlight, use sunbeds in a tanning salon or use tanning creams, all methods of tanning have the same effect on skin by changing the skins natural pigmentation.

LHR is quickly becoming the number one choice for hair removal and is fast, convenient and affordable. Laser hair removal gives you hair removal without all the fuss and mess of other hair removal options.

However, people who favour tanning have been discouraged from having laser hair removal due to the fact that tanning, whichever method is used, darkens the skins and changes pigmentation. People are advised to use SPF15 or higher, even in everyday sunlight. This is because the procedure for laser hair removal involves light energy passing through the skin and entering the hair follicles below in order to disable them and prevent hair growth. However, tanned skin will absorb excess amounts of light energy as it passes through the skin. When the skin absorbs excessive amounts of light energy, the skin can suffer burning or discolouration. People were therefore advised to wait six to eight weeks after the last exposure to sunlight or tanning creams or until the tan had faded from their skin to avoid any adverse side effects during laser hair removal treatment.

But now as lifestyles changed and technology developes, lasers using longer wavelengths which provide safer treatments for people with darker or tanned skin are becoming more popular. The longer wavelength lasers enable people with tanned or darker skin types to have laser hair removal treatments comfortably and without the burning or discolouration which may have damaged skin when using other lasers.

Thanks to the constant development of technology, there is now a safe method of LHR available every skin tone and type.

Anyone who has just had a laser hair removal treatment, no matter which laser was used or what their skin type is, needs to look after their skin properly. The area which has been treated will be sensitive after treatment and patients should avoid exposure to sunlight and tanning creams until the sensitivity has gone and skin is healed. SPF 30 or higher should be used on treated areas to ensure the skin is not overexposed to sunlight and enable the skin to heal properly.
