Winter in Central Oregon is an exciting time. Many Oregonians enjoy outdoor activities like skiing and snowboarding. Others choose to enjoy the local shops and dining opportunities. However, winter is also a unique opportunity to unwind and indulge in a bit of self-care. Laser skin resurfacing is the perfect winter cosmetic treatment for those looking to improve the look and feel of their skin.

Why Get Laser Skin Resurfacing in the Winter?

While it can be easy to miss the warm sunny days of summer, this lack of sunshine is actually what makes winter an ideal time to invest in laser resurfacing.

After laser treatment, your skin becomes more sensitive to UV exposure. This can increase your risk of sun damage. Having a sunburn can also exclude you from being able to get laser skin resurfacing. That’s why many cosmetic surgeons and estheticians recommend their patients schedule treatments over the winter months, when they’re mostly indoors and away from the sun.

How Laser Skin Resurfacing Can Improve Your Complexion

Laser resurfacing can address several skin concerns at once, making it an amazing treatment for anyone with a variety of skin concerns.

The treatment works by using targeted wavelengths to remove the top layer of damaged, dying skin, exposing the new layer underneath. While removing the top layers, the treatment also warms the lower layers of skin, encouraging collagen production. The result is tighter, firmer, younger-looking skin.

As a result, laser resurfacing is a great option to fight signs of aging, like fine lines, wrinkles, and age sports. It’s also effective at targeting and removing acne scars, resulting in a smoother complexion.

Choose the Right Expert for your Resurfacing Treatment

Like any other cosmetic procedure, choosing an experienced practitioner to administer the treatment is essential. While laser skin resurfacing is a safe procedure, working with an inexperienced practitioner can increase your risk for adverse effects like further scarring or burns.

An experienced practitioner is equipped with the information and training you need to ensure a safe, effective, and painless procedure. They can also guide you through aftercare and help identify any risk factors that could exclude you from the treatment. When it comes to your skin concerns, these treatments are best left to the experts.
