Winter Is the Perfect Time to Start a Laser Series!

If you’re looking for a non-surgical way to achieve your aesthetic goals this season, look no further. From hair removal to skin rejuvenation, our advanced laser treatments have you covered! Here are a few reasons why winter is a great time to start a laser series at the Centre for Aesthetic + Reconstructive Surgery.

You Can Repair Summer Skin Damage

It’s no secret that the sun is hard on your skin. After long summers spent basking under the warm Rhode Island rays, your complexion may not be at its best. While some damage may be permanent, you can reduce many signs of sun exposure with laser treatments.

Some common signs of sun damage include:

  • Age spots (also known as sun spots or solar lentigines)
  • Spider veins
  • Wrinkles
  • Fine lines
  • Uneven skin tone
  • Rough skin texture

Winter is a great time to repair the skin damage that summer left behind. An IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) PhotoFacial can help optimize your skin health. An IPL PhotoFacial requires little to no downtime and can leave you with a more youthful, even complexion.

Less Sun Exposure Often Means Better Results

While no one wants to lose their summer glow, your winter complexion may be better suited to laser treatments. That’s because sunburns and tans can stand between you and the best possible results.

Laser treatments work by targeting cells that have a deeper pigmentation than those around them. When there is a higher contrast between the aesthetic concern and the surrounding skin, the session may be more beneficial. While modern laser treatments work on all skin tones, your treatment may not be as effective as it could be if you have a dark summer tan.

It is also best to avoid sun exposure right after a laser session because your skin will be more sensitive. Protecting your skin from the sun can be easier in the winter. You are probably indoors more often, and when you go outside it isn’t a problem to bundle up under some protective layers.

You Can Get Smooth Skin in Time for Summer

For many people, hair removal is the last thing on their mind in the winter. Hair removal might be low on your to-do list too since no one can see your skin under all of your cold-weather layers. But summer will be here before you know it, and you’ll want to show off smooth skin without the hassle of shaving or waxing.

It’s a good idea to start your IPL hair removal sessions now. IPL treatments target your hair follicles with light to heat them and discourage future hair growth, meaning your results should be long-lasting. You may need multiple sessions to achieve your desired results, so the winter is a great time to start your IPL series.
