Consider Laser Skin Resurfacing this Season

Woman outdoors with styled hair after winter skin rejuvenationWhen applied to your face, laser skin resurfacing can dramatically rejuvenate the tissue. These devices vaporize the surface layer of dead, dry skin cells, revealing the fresh cells beneath. The treatment also stimulates the production of new collagen, which is a supportive, elastic material that makes skin supple and smooth. With spring right around the corner, this season can be a great opportunity to get laser skin resurfacing.

Why the Wintertime can be the Right Time for Laser Skin Resurfacing

The very most important factor is to seek cosmetic treatments when you feel ready. But if you are considering laser treatment now, consider some of these benefits of a wintertime/early spring appointment:

Mother Nature may help you avoid excessive sun exposure. It’s important to avoid direct sun exposure in the week or so after laser skin resurfacing. Your healing skin will be quite sensitive and susceptible to sun damage. Protecting your skin will ultimately yield better results. As a local, you know that the winter in Boise and Meridian gets cold, cloudy and snowy. What better time to cozy up indoors than after your winter laser treatment? Remember, if you do happen to go out, especially on a sunny day, be sure to wear sunscreen and/or a wide-brimmed hat.

Cooler temps and cloudy days may relieve healing skin. It’s not uncommon for your face to feel itchy and slightly irritated after laser resurfacing. You may also have mild swelling. You may feel like your face is lightly sunburned. Cool, cloudy weather can be really relieving to these symptoms.

Enter spring with camera-ready skin. If you’ve got a spring break vacation planned, freshly rejuvenated skin can be a major asset! Imagine feeling confident and putting your best face forward as you embark on spring and summer adventures.

All that being said, we want you to find the timing that works for your life. Contact us for a consultation and to learn more about scheduling, results, appointment duration, cost and other matters.
