Taking care of your skin is a year-round job, but certain seasons lend themselves to particular skin treatments. For example, laser skin rejuvenation (which includes BBL™ photofacials and Halo™ laser skin renewal) can be performed safely year-round. But we especially love performing these skin treatments in the fall and winter for a number of important reasons.
Here’s a closer look at the benefits of laser skin renewal in the cooler months:
Fewer Side Effects
Lasers and sunshine do not mix! Exposing your skin to the sun either before or after your laser treatment increases your risk of hyperpigmentation, diminished benefits, or a rebound effect (when your skin reverts to its pre-treatment state). The weaker sunlight of the fall and winter, combined with more time spent indoors, translates into less UV exposure and safer laser treatments. It’s that simple.
Keeping your skin protected with daily SPF application, rain or shine, is the most important action you can take to maintain the benefits of your treatment. Even though the chance for sub-zero temps and snow around here is slim, it still holds true that the winter months have weaker rays, which is a big bonus when your skin is newly-treated, fragile, and needs extra UV protection.
Keeping your skin gorgeous is simple, but it also requires diligence! To learn more about laser skin treatments for bringing out your best skin, call 325.480.0522 or complete our online consultation request form today.
