It’s not just the time to be jolly but also the season to have laser treatments done. Here’s why…
Exposure to the sun before or after laser treatment increases the development of unwanted dark spots (hyperpigmentation) or light spots (hypopigmentation), which has long-term side effects.
Here are a few good reasons to consider:
1. Lessen your Sun Exposure — During this time of the year, the days are shorter and the nights longer. The colder temperature makes us want to expose under the sun longer. If your skin is darker than usual or if you just had a recent sun exposure, undergoing laser procedures could potentially increase your burn risk. Therefore you should avoid too much sun exposure, and applying and reapplying sunscreen is highly recommended.
2. Cover Up — Two weeks before and after laser treatment, you have to avoid exposing the treated areas under the sun. This is the perfect time to put on those long sleeves, turtlenecks, jackets and wide-brimmed hats.
3. Be patient, the best outcome takes time — Plan for at least 4-6 sessions over the course 6-7 months. Collagen remodelling and permanent hair reduction takes time, but once it happens, you’ll see a new you!
