Sun exposure is a major contraindication for LHR. Increased melanin in the skin will compete for the laser energy intended for the hair follicle beneath the skin. It is more susceptible to certain side effects including Blistering or Hyperpigmentation of the skin. After laser treatment, even a small amount of sun exposure can cause severe burns and inflammation, they are the most common reasons to cause of Hyperpigmentation. So, less sun exposure and tanning in Winter means less risks of having any reactions to laser treatments.
