One of the features most commonly associated with youth and beauty is a great complexion. Unfortunately, it becomes more difficult to maintain good skin tone and texture as we age. Starting in your 30s, collagen production begins to slow down. Not only that, but the consequences of earlier lifestyle choices begin to show themselves on your skin around this time. Fortunately, there are ways to restore a youthful look to your appearance. Laser skin resurfacing is high on that list, and for many people, the cooler months are the most ideal time to schedule their treatment.
Recovering May Be More Convenient in the Fall
Laser skin resurfacing benefits people who want to minimize the appearance of wrinkles, sun damage and minor scars.*
Immediately after laser skin resurfacing, you may experience some redness and swelling. Most people aren’t quite ready to face the world for the first few days or so, and you won’t be able to wear makeup for a while. Hiding away indoors for several days can be easier to pull off in the fall or wintercompared to warm weather months.
Staying Out of the Sun Is EasierDuring the Cooler Months
You will have to avoid direct sun exposure while your skin heals after having laser skin rejuvenation. This is much easier to do when the kids aren’t asking to go to the pool and you’re not getting invited to outdoor events. If your thoughts are turning to rejuvenating your skin as the seasons change, consult a board-certified facial plastic surgeon, preferably one who specializes in facial plastic surgery. After examining you and discussing your goals, your plastic surgeon can help you decide whether laser skin resurfacing will benefit you.
