Did you know that fall and winter are the best time of the year to have a laser procedure done? The beautiful, healthy summer skin we all strive to achieve actually starts in the fall and early winter. 

Why Fall and Winter?

There are many reasons why fall and winter are the best seasons for laser treatments.

1) Laser therapy and the sun do not mix    

WHAT’S THE BEST TIME OF YEAR FOR LASER TREATMENTS?To prepare for a laser treatment you should avoid direct sun exposure for 1 week before your procedure. And depending upon which type of laser treatment you have, you will need to avoid the sun for 2-4 weeks after your treatment. Since some treatments require more than one session, this makes fall the ideal season for laser treatments.

Laser treatment on tanned skin can also be less effective due to the increase in the skin's pigmentation. When the color of the skin is closer to the color of the pigment, the laser cannot be as aggressive. Also, sun exposure after laser treatment can lead to permanent skin discoloration and possibly worse damage to your skin than before treatment.

2) Erase the effects of sun damage while staying out of the sun

If you got a little too much sun this summer and want to repair some of the damage to your skin, utilize the fall and winter for “laser time”. Laser treatments help to revitalize the effects of damage from the sun. For example, Intended Pulse Light (IPL), helps restore skin color due to hyperpigmentation/brown spots, redness, acne inflammation giving your skin a beautiful healthy glow. The downtime from the sun during the fall and winter will help give you long-lasting results from your laser treatment. But don’t forget to use sunscreen come summer, to help maintain the benefits from laser therapy.

3) Time to see results

Depending on what type of laser treatment you will be receiving you will need a series of treatments in order to get optimal results. For acne treatments you need to wait 4-6 weeks between treatments and will require at least 2-3 treatments for lasting results. If you are looking to do laser hair removal, you don’t want to start treatments in March and not be able to finish the treatment package by your summer vacation.

4) Recovery time for  your skin

During the fall and winter months, we tend to spend less time out in the direct sunlight. This gives your skin a chance to be ready to start and recover from laser therapy treatments and obtain the best results by staying out of the sun, as well as, plenty of time to start and complete your treatment package before summer arrives!
