As the fall season begins to loom, now is the time to consider cosmetic treatments you might have been putting off over the summer. At Ocean Plastic Surgery, we typically perform the large majority of our laser treatments, including skin rejuvenation and laser hair removal, during the fall and winter months. Cooler weather and fewer sunny days create the perfect environment for your laser procedures, so you can enjoy the best possible outcome from your treatments.

Laser Treatments and Tanned Skin

Laser treatments are limited in their ability to work on tanned skin. This means skin that has been browned by the sun’s natural rays or the artificial light of a tanning booth. If a golden bronze is your color of choice during the summer months, give your tan a chance to fade before undergoing your laser treatment. You will be much happier with your results overall.

Sun Exposure and Lasers

After any type of laser treatment, your skin is especially sensitive. Exposure to the sun can intensify the sensitivity and interfere with your results. During the fall and winter, the days are shorter and there is less sunshine to grapple with. At the same time, cloudy weather and cooler temperatures allow you to head outdoors after your laser treatment with less worry about how UV rays could impact your procedure.

Cooler Temperatures Mean Better Coverage

When it comes to laser hair removal, cooler temperatures can be particularly helpful. When the temperature goes down, clothing switches over from shorts and t-shirts to sweaters and jeans. This keeps treatment areas under wraps, protecting sensitive skin and hiding telltale signs of your procedure, such as slight bruising or swelling. By the time warmer weather rolls around again, your skin will be completely healed and you will be ready to flaunt those fabulous results to the world!

Ready for the Holidays

The holidays are frequently a time when we see friends and family we don’t get to spend as much time with throughout the year. Naturally, you want to look your best for these occasions. By starting your laser treatments now, you can rest assured your skin will be healthy and glowing by the time that first holiday party comes along. Winter vacations in tropical locations are also a perfect time to show off your rejuvenated skin or the results of your laser hair removal.

At Ocean Plastic Surgery, we offer a variety of laser treatments to address a myriad of skin concerns. Whether you are looking to eliminate unwanted facial or body hair, turn back the clock on your appearance or refresh your complexion, we can help.
