Why Winter Is The Best Time For Laser Skin Treatment

There’s no need to get the winter blues when it comes to laser treatments. Laser treatments can rejuvenate the skin by reducing the appearance of acne scars, blemishes, dark spots, fine lines, rosacea, and wrinkles. This makes your skin appear smoother and younger.

While it doesn’t get as cold in Newport Beach, CA, it can still get cool, cloudy, and rainy during the winter months. Here at Elite Aesthetics & Wellness, we encourage you to book a laser treatment during this time of the year. Dr. D’Andra Lee MSN, APR, FNP-C has knowledge and expertise when it comes to laser treatments. She can help you determine the best course of action for your skin concerns. Winter is the best time to get a skin laser treatment for the following reasons:

Avoid the Sun

You tend to avoid the sun in the wintertime. You’re more likely to stay indoors, which is why it’s preferable to get a laser treatment. Exposure to the sun causes damage to your skin. Since your skin will be sore and sensitive, it’s best to stay indoors.

Healing is also easier in the winter since your skin also isn’t exposed to the sun’s harmful UV rays. Our staff recommends laser treatments during the wintertime. You can stay inside while your treatment works its magic.

Improved Healing

Wintertime creates a better healing environment. You’ll experience sensitivity after your treatment. The colder, longer months offer the optimal environment for your skin to heal. In the summer, you tend to sweat and are exposed to more UV rays. These skin irritants can lead to unnecessary skin irritation that can affect your healing.

Hydrates Your Skin

Our laser treatments give your skin a hydrating boost. In the winter, you become prone to dry air, cold weather, and lower humidity levels. This can rob your skin of the moisture it needs.

When you have a skin laser treatment, you bring that moisture back into your skin. This gives you that added boost you need.

Treatments have other added benefits including increased collagen, improved circulation, exfoliation, and a more youthful appearance.

No Tanned Skin

Laser treatments and tanning do not go together. Tanned skin does not respond to lasers. It has to target the bare skin to remove acne scars, brown spots, and other impurities. The laser is smart enough to know the difference between discolored and natural skin. If you have a tan, the laser will target the wrong spots, which leads to hyperpigmentation.
