Is your skin feeling damaged and dry after a fun summer of sunshine? Even if you were careful to protect your skin with sunblock, shade, and a hat – the end of summer can leave your skin looking less than its best.
Fall is the best time to receive laser treatments, and we have a variety of options available right here at Aspire Plastic Surgery.
Fall and Winter is Laser Season
The fall and winter months are also referred to as laser season because it is the perfect time to receive BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL) or Halo Laser Resurfacing treatments or start a series of Laser Hair Removal sessions.
Fall is the best time for laser treatments because:
- Sun damage causes fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, hyperpigmentation, rosacea, and more! You can lessen or even remove these signs of sun damage from your fun summer season with Halo Laser Resurfacing and BBL Therapy
- After your laser treatment, your skin will be sensitive and vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays. Though it is imperative to protect your skin with sunscreen throughout all seasons of the year, sun exposure is less likely in the fall and winter months.
- Though laser treatments are non-invasive, there is a period following your procedure that requires rest and recovery. Since more time is spent indoors during the fall and winter seasons, it is easier to relax and enjoy your post-procedure downtime.
- With your laser treatment in the rearview mirror, you will be ready for any upcoming spring and summer vacations. With this treatment checked off the list, you can focus on more important things related to planning your trip.
BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL)
BroadBand Light Therapy (BBL) is a laser treatment that can help diminish fine lines and wrinkles, improve redness, and lessen age or sun-related spots. This non-invasive treatment uses high-intensity pulses of visible light and offers minimal downtime for patients after the procedure.
Following treatment, age spots will get darker and eventually slough off, resulting in a more youthful and radiant appearance. Popular treatment areas include but aren’t limited to the face, chest, neck, arms, legs, and back.
Halo Laser Resurfacing
Halo Laser Resurfacing is also a laser treatment, and it combines deep dermal remodeling with epidermal renewal. This procedure effectively targets both visible and hidden damage to your skin. The procedure triggers your skin’s natural healing response and can visibly improve your skin tone, texture, and sun damage.
Following treatment, patients can expect 5-7 days of downtime. Immediately following treatment, your skin will feel like you have a very intense sunburn and will be warm and swollen. Next, your skin will get extremely dry and will eventually begin to flake off. Results displaying a more youthful glow to your skin can be seen in as little as a week and will continue to improve in the months that follow. Popular treatment areas include the face, neck, and chest.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser Hair Removal consists of a series of laser treatments that focus on removing hair, giving you smoother skin without damage from shaving. These sessions are less painful and irritating than other hair removal methods like shaving or waxing.
The hair removal process is a series of six treatments scheduled every 4-6 weeks. Though it is a permanent solution, there will also be some maintenance treatments needed over time.
Popular treatment areas for laser hair removal include legs, underarms, bikinis, chin, upper lip, and back. Fall is a great time to start the process so you can enjoy smooth, maintenance-free skin by spring and summer!
