Why Winter is Ideal for Laser Treatments

RPSFebBlogDo you find yourself longing for the warm days of summer? At Renaissance Plastic Surgery, we understand that the dreary days of winter can drag on.  Don’t let the dark days of winter get you down. Instead, take advantage of these colder months and prepare your skin for the summer ahead. Winter’s gray cover provides an amazing opportunity for laser treatments.

“Why?” you ask. Let us explain!


Your Summer Tan has had a Chance to Fade

Pale skin responds favorably to laser treatments. As lasers are designed to focus on precise areas of hyperpigmentation, they are limited in their ability to work on tanned skin—whether this be by the sun’s natural rays or the artificial light of a tanning bed. As we are deep in the midst of winter, your skin has had time to recover from any summer sun exposure.

Your Skin Will Be Extra Sensitive to the Sun’s UV Rays

Your skin will be especially sensitive following your laser treatment. Exposure to the sun only intensifies the skin’s sensitivity, and, what is more, can interfere with the results of your treatment. In the winter, the days are shorter and, with less sunlight, we tend to spend more time indoors. As you cuddle up by the fire or tuck-in with a good book, you can rest-assure that you are giving your skin the TLC it needs.

Winter Layers Provide the Protection You Need

Sweater weather provides another layer of protection as your skin heals. Not only will your winter wardrobe protect your skin, but it can camouflage any lingering side effects such as redness, swelling, or flaky skin. Laser treatments are great for rejuvenating delicate areas like the neck and hands, both of which can be easily concealed with cold-weather accessories. Cozy winter layers like a chunky scarf, plush mittens, and an oversize hats just became a lot more useful.

You Will Thank Yourself for Thinking Ahead

Although unique to each of our patients, laser treatments tend to require a series of treatments. By starting now, you can complete your series in time for summer.
