fractional CO2 laser resurfacing before and afterWinter is here and there are many changes. We tend to stay indoors and wear warm clothing. This makes it the perfect time for certain treatments that some may not get during the spring, summer, or fall. Here we discuss some of the most common treatment people have during the wintertime.

Laser Leg Vein Treatment

While the most common cosmetic concerns women have are about their faces, the rest of the body is important too. A common concern in the lower body is veins on the legs. These tend to appear over time and can be genetic. Other factors include wearing high heels and standing up for long periods of time. Fortunately, we can treat most leg veins with a laser. The light from the laser targets the blood and destroys the vein. After the treatment, you can have a bruise or darkening of the skin. But during the winter when we wear warm clothes it is easy to cover this up.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels such as the Red Carpet Peel work well for a variety of concerns including fine lines, wrinkles, and dark discolorations. With stronger treatments there can be some recovery time when the skin is red or even peeling. During this time it is important to avoid the sun. The winter is an ideal time for this treatment because many people stay indoors during the cold winter months.

Fractional CO2 Laser Resurfacing

The fractional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment is a more aggressive treatment that addresses fine lines, deeper wrinkles, and sun damage. Results from a single treatment can be impressive. The treatment stimulates collagen over time and improvement is seen slowly over several months. The downside is that there is usually one to two weeks of recovery time which includes redness, swelling, and flaking or crusting. Many people do this treatment when they have time off in the winter and are not seen by there coworkers or clients.
