Did you know that some aesthetic treatments are best performed during the fall, winter and early spring? Procedures such as Botox Cosmetic® and dermal fillers (Juvéderm®) can be performed in any season. Other treatments such as laser hair removal, chemical peels and laser skin rejuvenation are ideally carried out during months when we are not exposed to the sun.
In order to ensure you have the best result from your treatment and to reduce the risk of any complications there are restrictions surrounding some treatments and exposure to sun, tanning beds and even the use of self-tanning products. It is always best to discuss the pre and post treatment instructions at the time of your initial consultation. Now is the perfect time to begin a series of chemical peels for deeper exfoliation to soften the texture of your skin and improve your complexion. Beginning in December 2012 we will be offering laser hair removal and IPL treatments for the reduction of age spots, discolorations and spider veins.
With a little planning, you will be ready to expose your skin to the sun during the warmer months or while on vacation and still be able to complete your aesthetic treatments.
