Non-invasive laser treatments can be performed anytime throughout the year, but certain seasons offer advantages that others don’t. Fall and winter are the perfect times to begin your laser treatment regimen with Dr. Paik and Shay Glisson, FNP-BC, at Midwest Facial Plastic Surgery.

Reduced Sun Exposure

We recommend that patients avoid sun exposure after their laser treatments, and the chillier fall and winter months make that easy! In the warmer summer months, you’re more likely to experience prolonged sun exposure or sun damage, which could result in permanent scarring, discoloration, or burns. By opting for treatments when the sun is less intense, you can minimize these risks and navigate your recovery more safely.

Planning for Summer

Planning your laser treatments for the fall and winter allows you to look and feel your best for our favorite season – summer! Depending on the laser treatment you receive, multiple sessions may be required, with a few weeks to a few months of time where you’ll want to be out of the sun. Starting now will give you ample time to complete your treatment plan, leaving you with glowing and rejuvenated skin just in time for your next pool party.

Repair Sun Damage

Everyone loves to spend time in the summer sun, but increased sun exposure can damage the skin and cause hyperpigmentation or burns. This UV radiation can cause dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. Receiving laser treatments in the fall can minimize the appearance of sun damage, leaving your skin looking brighter and smoother than ever before.

Opting for laser treatments in the fall and winter months offers numerous benefits, from minimizing sun-related risks to providing you with a fresh summer glow. As the seasons change and the temperatures drop, consider scheduling your laser skin treatments with Midwest Facial Plastic Surgery!
