Fall has arrived, and many people are eagerly anticipating seasonal favorites like apple picking and visiting a corn maze or pumpkin patch. But you may not realize one other activity is perfect for this time of year – laser skin rejuvenation. Whether your worries include sun damage, discoloration, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores, or uneven skin texture, the shorter days of fall are an excellent time to get a Clear + Brilliant® treatment.
The Importance of Timing Your Laser Procedure
Autumn is a time to enjoy beautiful foliage and celebrate holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving. But did you know fall also marks the beginning of laser season? Here’s why – after laser skin resurfacing, your skin can be extra vulnerable to sun damage.
Our board-certified dermatologists suggest getting Clear + Brilliant® in the fall or winter, when UV rays are less powerful, and shorter days usually make you want to spend more time inside. You’re also more likely to cover your skin, further protecting it from the sun.
In rare cases, excess sun exposure after a laser procedure might cause hyper- or hypopigmentation, resulting in additional flaws and cosmetic concerns and reversing the improvements you realized with your Clear + Brilliant® treatment.
3 Ways to Prolong Your Clear + Brilliant® Results
In addition to staying indoors and shielding your treated skin from the sun, what other steps can you take to enjoy smoother, healthier, and younger-looking skin after Clear + Brilliant®?
- Stay hydrated. Water helps rid your body of toxins that could otherwise accumulate and cause damage. It also promotes healthy circulation, which is essential for delivering nutrients to all your organs and tissues. For best results, keep a canteen full of water close at hand and sip from it throughout the day.
- Get plenty of restful sleep. Adults need seven to nine hours of sleep per night to be healthy. During deep sleep, your body works to repair the tissue damage that leads to premature aging, so “beauty sleep” is more than merely a cliché.
- Establish a skin care routine. An effective skin care routine should involve cleansing, exfoliating, and moisturizing. You can supplement your Clear + Brilliant® results by washing your face every morning and evening, followed by a moisturizer tailored to your skin type. For best results, you can use our line of medical-grade skin care products.
