The colder weather and shorter days give our skin the chance to replenish itself, which makes it the perfect time for getting beauty procedures done, especially laser treatments. Our state of the art facility and supervised student laser practitioners offer the most in-demand laser services, tailored to each client’s individual needs. Here’s what you should try this winter to soothe your skincare woes:

Hair Removal

Bye-Bye unwanted hair!

Although laser hair removal can be performed at any time of the year, winter is the best time to get it done because there’s less sun exposure with the shorter days and warmer clothing. It’s highly recommended to get laser hair removal when the skin is not tanned (e.g. salon tan, spray tan, sun-kissed tan). Since the laser focuses on the pigment of your hair follicles, it may confuse it with the tanned skin. This may lead to unnecessary skin pigmentation. Also, it takes more than one treatment to see results. To that end, laser hair removal is best performed during the winter time, and then you’ll be all set for the spring and summer seasons!

Skin Tightening, Pixel Resurfacing, or Photofacial 

Hello smooth, flawless skin!

Ultimately, the reason why laser treatments work more effectively during the colder months is because there’s fewer chances of sun damage compared to the spring and summer months. In other words, the winter season gives your skin a chance to optimally heal itself. For example, harmful UV rays may inhibit skin cell reparation. Also, since the skin becomes dry and dehydrated during the winter, these treatments will help retain a healthy glow. Therefore, skin tightening, pixel resurfacing or photofacial treatments are ideal for the winter season.
