Why Fall and Winter Are the Best Times to Invest in Laser Treatments

Posted in: Cosmetic Medicine Education

Fall and winter are the perfect seasons for laser treatments. The summer sun can be unforgiving — even in Michigan — and  it’s essential to avoid sun exposure after laser treatments. This makes the cold weather months an ideal time to consider laser and resurfacing treatments. Treatment options include:

Broadband Light Treatment (BBL®)
One of the most sought-after rejuvenation treatments this time of year is Broadband Light Treatment (BBL). As summer tans fade, brown spots on the body become more apparent, making it easier to target them with BBL.

Sciton® BBL HERO®
HERO (High Energy Rapid Output) delivers safer, faster, more powerful and more comfortable results than ever before. This versatile treatment targets reds and browns on the face, neck, chest, back, arms and even legs. The photothermal energy from BBL eliminates fine vessels causing redness and reduces unwanted melanin that leads to pigmented lesions. The treated skin feels smoother. Fine lines and pores become less noticeable, and sunspots and uneven pigmentation gradually fade, restoring skin to its natural beauty. BBL treatments can also slow visible signs of aging, making it an excellent investment in your skin’s long-term health.

Laser Hair Removal
This also is the best time to begin laser hair removal treatments. BBL delivers light energy directly to hair follicles. This energy is converted to heat, injuring the stem cells in the bulb to prevent hair growth. The treatment can be customized to match your skin type and desired results.

Advanced Treatments
For more comprehensive skin resurfacing, advanced treatments such as MicroLaserPeel® (MLP), ProFractional™, Contour TRL™ and HALO® by Sciton laser treatments address wrinkles, scars and poor skin tone/texture. These treatments can be added to or performed separately from other BBL treatments.

  • MicroLaserPeel (MLP)
    This treatment removes the top layer of skin, eliminating damaged cells that can give your skin a tired, aged appearance.
  • ProFractional
    This treatment targets thousands of pinpoint areas on the skin, promoting rapid healing and stimulating new collagen production to enhance skin firmness and resilience.
  • Contour TRL
    More aggressive than MLP, this treatment safely removes a layer of skin to a depth based on your skin condition, desired outcome and expected downtime. The laser stimulates the growth of new collagen and encourages the skin to regenerate, resulting in a rejuvenated, youthful appearance.
  • HALO
    This hybrid laser provides simultaneous treatments on multiple layers of skin. It removes the thin outer layer while also improving pigmentation and texture. The result is unmatched improvement in the appearance of aging skin. The HALO treatment is more comfortable with minimal downtime, allowing you to get back to your daily routine quickly.

Incorporating these advanced treatments can help you achieve smoother, more vibrant and younger-looking skin. Take advantage of the colder, cloudier fall and winter months to embark on your journey to healthier, more radiant skin.
