Laser Hair Removal and spray tan

by SanJuana
(Pueblo Colorado United States)

Question: I been doing laser hair removal for the last past 6 months. I told the lady there that I wanted to tan but she told me that tanning would possibly leave spots on my body and face. I asked her about spray tanning and she didn't know if it would effect me. Would Spray tanning effect me if in this situation?

Answer: If you use laser hair removal when you have spray tan, there is a chance that you can get some unpleasant side effects such as burns and blisters, because the dark skin color will absorb more light.
Only use laser hair removal on white skin.

Being a certified laser hair specialist i would highly recommend NOT tanning, spray tans, fake bronzers, etc 2 weeks prior to laser treatments and at least 1 week after. I know how you feel, we all love to have a little color and i made the mistake on myself. I now have 10 tiny white squares going down my leg in a perfect line. It sucks, however they will go away in a few months so be smart about this process!
