Aesthetic improvement can be pursued throughout the year, but different seasons offer distinct advantages. Fall is a perfect time to begin your laser treatment, mainly because they give your skin a refresh after months spent in the summer sun.

What is Laser Treatment?

At JB Cosmetics, we provide a comprehensive range of cosmetic laser procedures designed to deal with many of the most prevalent aesthetic issues, including wrinkles and lines, loose skin, skin discoloration, rosacea, acne scars, or hyperpigmentation. Some of our most popular treatments include the IPL Photofacial, hair removal, LED light treatments, and ablative or non-ablative lasers. The difference between these lasers is how deeply they penetrate the skin and what type of laser energy is used.

Reasons to Receive Treatment in the Fall

Less Sun Exposure

After most laser treatments, it is recommended that you avoid sun exposure and the shorter, colder days in the fall and winter make that easy. The higher the temperature, the more likely you are to burn your skin or damage your hair follicles, which can result in permanent scars or discolorations.

Repair Summer Damage

Everyone loves spending time in the summer sun, but too much sun exposure can damage your skin. UV radiation from the sun causes dark spots, fine lines, and wrinkles. Laser treatments in the fall can eliminate these signs of sun exposure and rejuvenate your skin with a brighter, healthier appearance.

Prepare for Next Summer

Laser hair removal is a popular laser treatment, but it requires 6-9 treatment sessions scheduled weeks apart. Scheduling your laser hair removal in the fall gives you time to complete your series of treatments and start the next summer with smooth, beautiful skin.

What to Expect from Laser Treatment

There are a few things you should know before having a laser treatment. If you’re considering laser treatment, it may be worth it to have a consultation to make sure you are a good candidate and that it is the best option for your skin condition. Your doctor can examine your skin, help determine if you’re a good candidate for laser treatment, and help rule out other treatments that could work better for your condition.

When you’ve had laser treatments, it’s important to follow the guidelines for how long you’ll need to wait before returning to your usual grooming habits. Faded, discolored skin after laser treatments usually shows a reaction to one of the ingredients used. This typically happens because your body’s natural defense system is unable to protect certain areas from the wavelength released by the laser. To avoid future complications, you must wait until your treated skin has completely healed before re-entering any activities that might cause you harm or scarring.
