Get a jumpstart on your cosmetic laser treatments this winter. Laser skin resurfacing is an ideal treatment to receive during the winter months when the skin is less likely to have accidental sun exposure. It is recommended that you limit any kind of sun exposure after laser skin resurfacing treatments because your skin can become more sensitive to the sun’s rays. Sun sensitivity and exposure inhibits the process of skin rejuvenation and typically causes hyper pigmentation or darkening of freshly treated skin.
You also do not want to receive a laser treatment if your skin is tanned or sunburned or if you have recently been in a tanning bed or applied sunless bronzing lotions. When the pigment in your skin is altered you can become more sensitive to laser treatments. It is possible to have blistering or burning of the skin if the pigment has been tanned or sunburned within 2 weeks of the laser treatment.
Laser vein treatments on the legs can also be more comfortable in the winter since it is recommended to wear compression stockings for 10-14 days after treatment; hot summer months can make this less desirable.

Laser skin resurfacing is also known as laser peel or fractional laser treatments. It reduces the signs of aging, sun damage, acne scars, and other imperfections. Also, it stimulates collagen and new skin cells under the surface of the skin to reveal smother and healthier skin. Laser skin resurfacing is a great option for skin rejuvenation to reveal skin that is healthier, brighter and tighter.
