Are you as relieved as we are that daylight saving time is ending soon? Come November 4th, that extra hour of sleep will certainly come in handy! Another autumn “bonus” we love is laser skin renewal. Did you know that the fall and winter months are ideal times to schedule your laser skin treatments? Here’s why:
Lasers and suntans do NOT mix.
Sun exposure either before or after your laser treatment will increase your risk of complications like hyperpigmentation. During your personal consultation, we will carefully assess your skin type, concerns and goals to determine if laser skin treatments are a suitable option for you. As award-winning skin care experts in Tulsa, we offer a leading range of treatments for all types of skin and goals. We can’t wait to help you find the best treatments for your unique needs.
Take advantage of weaker sun rays and shorter days.
Our most important post-treatment instruction is staying out of the sun and applying SPF 30 or greater in the days and weeks following your treatment. Keeping your skin protected will help you avoid adverse reactions and speed your skin’s healing. Sun avoidance is much easier to do when it’s cold outside and you’re already indoors more often.
Gorgeous skin is a long-term commitment.
While laser skin renewal can offer a quick fix for certain skin concerns like age spots or freckles, it shouldn’t be considered a one-and-done treatment. We love performing treatments in the cooler months because it gives you a leg up, so to speak, for sun protection. The winter offers months of relatively easy sun avoidance. Still, we can’t stress enough that achieving gorgeous, healthy skin is a lifelong commitment. This means daily SPF application of 30 or greater, 365 days a year. It also means saying good-bye to your summer suntan, which will undo the benefits of your laser treatment faster than you can say boo.
