If you’re considering laser skin rejuvenation to revitalize your complexion and even out your skin tone, winter is your season. Read on to learn why going now, rather than in the sunny summer months, is a plus for recovery and results.
You desire smooth, wrinkle- and scar-free skin with an even tone and soft texture. Laser skin rejuvenation is an effective, safe, noninvasive treatment to improve your skin’s appearance and feel offered at Lansdowne Aesthetic Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
During laser skin rejuvenation, your technician directs an intense beam of light at your skin. It destroys the outer layer of old cells and heats the underlying skin to stimulate the development of compounds that boost your skin’s look and health.
Men and women choose laser skin rejuvenation to soften the appearance of lines and wrinkles, repair sun damage, hide facial veins, tighten lax skin, and smooth out acne or chickenpox scars.
If you and Dr. Yaqub Baraki decide this treatment is for you, don’t wait. Winter is a great time to undergo laser skin rejuvenation.
Keeps you out of the sun
Following laser skin rejuvenation, you may have some redness and mild swelling that lasts just a day or two. But, even when this mild side effect fades, you should stay out of the sun. This can be especially challenging in the summer when the sun shines from morning to late into the evening. The shorter days of winter provide extra protection from the sun’s rays.
You should still plan on wearing sunscreen and protective clothing – such as a hat with a brim – whenever you do go outside, even in winter. You don’t have to worry about sweating off the sunscreen you apply and reapplying as frequently, though.
A good time for lying low
Following laser skin rejuvenation, you may want to lie low for a couple of days as your skin fully heals and redness subsides. With more cloudy, cold days and snow or ice, you’ll be less tempted to head outdoors. You won’t feel like you’re missing out on pool time, hikes, or other outdoor adventures.
Be ready for summer
It can take some time for the results of your laser skin rejuvenation to fully show. The procedure stimulates collagen and elastin development, compounds that your body produces naturally to give your skin its youthful tautness and smoothness. Collagen fills in lines and wrinkles as well as scars, and elastin lifts sagging skin. It takes several weeks for your body to increase the production of these compounds and for you to see the full results of the laser therapy.
By the time summer rolls around and you want to flaunt a fresh face at summer weddings, picnics, and cocktail events, your skin looks smooth and evenly toned. The effects of laser skin rejuvenation can last for many years – so you may enjoy many beautiful summers and winters to come.
