When is the Best Time to Do Laser Treatments?

Skin concerns don’t always follow a schedule. And that’s okay because laser treatments are a safe and effective way to transform your complexion any time of the year. However, if you’re wondering when to start your sessions to get the maximum benefit, then fall is arguably best. 

Here are some of the top reasons to get laser skin and hair treatments this season:

  • Laser treatment timing infographicYou can undo summer sun damage: Evidence of the unprotected hours you spent outside may have begun to appear on your face, chest, arms, and hands. This is called sun damage. It can include wrinkles, dark spots, sagging skin, and spider veins. Fortunately, lasers can improve these concerns for skin that looks younger and healthier.
  • Tans and lasers don’t mix: Many laser devices perform better on untanned skin. Untanned skin provides a higher contrast between the skin and the cosmetic concern. That contrast allows the laser to focus easily and target the issues to be treated. Tanned skin can also be more sensitive than normal because the color change indicates damage.
  • It’s easier to protect your skin: Good aftercare is crucial following a laser treatment. And the number one rule is to avoid the harsh rays of the sun. Fortunately, as the weather becomes cooler, it gets more comfortable to cover up with protective clothing.
  • You have time to book multiple sessions: You may notice a visible improvement in your cosmetic concerns after just one laser appointment. However, it usually takes a series of appointments to achieve optimal results. This is particularly true for laser hair removal and some laser skin treatments. If you start now, you can finish before any big events that you have planned next year.
