As the summer sun shines brighter and temperatures rise, many people are eager to enhance their appearance and address skin concerns with laser treatments.
However, it’s important to acknowledge the significance of following proper preparation and recovery instructions if you are receiving a laser treatment this summer. We want to help you have a safe, successful, and effective experience during this beautiful season!
The Benefits of Laser Treatments
The use of lasers has revolutionized the field of cosmetic surgery by providing effective solutions for a wide range of skin concerns. These treatments have become extremely popular for those seeking noninvasive solutions that address cosmetic concerns.
Laser treatments offer numerous advantages that set them apart from other options. Unlike invasive surgeries, laser treatments are nonsurgical procedures that typically require minimal downtime or discomfort.
Popular Laser Treatments Offered
Aspire Plastic Surgery offers a comprehensive range of laser treatments to address various aesthetic concerns. We work with each patient to discuss their specific needs and create a customized treatment plan.
Laser hair reduction is a popular treatment for those tired of traditional hair removal methods like shaving, waxing, or plucking. This procedure uses targeted laser energy to destroy hair follicles, preventing regrowth and delivering long-lasting smooth results on the face, legs, bikini line, and underarms.
Laser skin resurfacing and laser skin rejuvenation procedures utilize advanced laser technology to stimulate collagen production, which can improve skin tone and texture, reduce wrinkles and fine lines, diminish signs of sun damage and aging, and increase elasticity. These treatments target the face, neck, chest, and hands, helping you achieve smoother, firmer, rejuvenated skin for a more youthful appearance.
Options for laser skin resurfacing or laser skin rejuvenation at Aspire Plastic Surgery include:
Tips for Getting Laser Treatments in the Summer
When undergoing laser treatments during the hot and sunny summer months, it is essential to take extra precautions to ensure the best results and minimize complications.
- Generously apply a broad-spectrum sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 30 or higher. Reapply it every two hours, especially if you are spending time outdoors.
- Wear a wide-brimmed hat and sunglasses to protect your face and eyes from UV radiation.
- Shield your skin from direct sunlight by wearing lightweight, loose-fitting clothing that covers exposed areas.
- Stay indoors or in the shade between the most intense hours of the sun’s rays (between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.)
- Drink plenty of water to hydrate your body and skin and support natural healing.
- Use gentle, hydrating skincare products to help replenish moisture and soothe your skin. Avoid harsh chemicals or exfoliants that may irritate the treated areas.
- Different laser treatments may have specific preparation and recovery instructions like limiting sun exposure, applying prescribed ointments, and avoiding certain activities or skincare products.
By following these tips, you can protect your skin, optimize the results of your laser treatments, and enjoy a safe and successful experience during the summer months.
