You may anticipate your holiday events all year long — your family’s get-togethers, kids’ holiday events and even your office parties. However, these activities probably add plenty to your to-do lists. You might think you couldn’t possibly have that cosmetic procedure you’ve recently considered. Your doctor, however, can perform several non-invasive procedures, such as laser skin rejuvenation treatments, during a single office visit.
Laser treatments use laser energy to eliminate individual layers of skin. As the skin heals, it produces a tighter, healthier layer with fewer signs of previous damage — uneven skin, wrinkles and fine lines. Recovery takes no more than three weeks and sometimes as little as a few days. Best of all, a laser facial resurfacing procedure may give you the boost you need to look your best this season.
Laser skin rejuvenation, a treatment to fit your holiday schedule
If you seek results but have limited time, a laser skin rejuvenation procedure may meet your needs. Treatment may take between 30 minutes and two hours and may not require general anesthesia with a limited treatment area. You will return home with some bandages and later will need to clean the treated areas and apply some ointments. While you may experience slight swelling and discomfort, those symptoms typically subside within the first three days. These factors make laser skin rejuvenation a convenient and effective ways to achieve younger, healthier looking skin.
Winter months, the ideal time to recover from a laser facial skin rejuvenation treatment
Winter, with less sun and harmful UV rays, gives patients an excellent time to recover from laser facial treatments. UV rays can burn skin already tender from a laser facial resurfacing or cause hyperpigmentation (blotchiness), impacting your final results.
Also, winter comes with more vacation time and long weekends. A long weekend can readily accommodate the most sensitive part of your recovery, the first 72 hours. You can also benefit from help from family and friends who also have more time off.
Bring Your Best Self to the Party With a Laser Facial Resurfacing Now
Winter may offer the best time for a cosmetic procedure. These months give you accommodating weather, more days off from work and extra help and support when you need it. The most important reason to act now may have little to do with practical considerations.
Your biggest celebrations of the year probably occur soon. You may see people you haven’t seen all year long. You will want to enjoy this time to its fullest without nagging concerns about your skin. If your schedule doesn’t permit a more invasive procedure, you can still improve your skin’s appearance and the way you feel now.
Laser skin rejuvenation, a treatment worth considering this winter
Of course, you will want to take the time to select the right procedure and doctor for your needs. You will also want ample time to recover. As the holidays approach, if you feel you need more than a new outfit and skin routine to look and feel your best, then consider a laser skin rejuvenation treatment to help you quickly achieve a youthful, healthy and vital look.
