When is the best time for laser skin resurfacing?

Would you like to repair the damage to your skin and restore its youthful radiance? Laser skin resurfacing may be the answer for you. Although it’s possible to have laser skin resurfacing done any time of the year, timing does make a difference. So when is the best time for laser skin resurfacing?

Laser skin resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing refers to the use of laser technology to remove unwanted skin cells and correct cosmetic flaws. It is a versatile treatment that can address a variety of skin concerns including fine lines, wrinkles, age spots, skin laxity, and scars.

How laser skin resurfacing works

The laser energy removes the outer layer of the skin to improve surface imperfections, and also heats the deeper dermal layer. This action stimulates the production of collagen, and as new collagen fibers emerge the skin becomes smoother and tighter than before.

When is the best time for laser skin resurfacing?

Skin resurfacing can be performed all year round, but doctors recommend having the treatment done during the fall and winter months when it’s cooler. The skin is usually very sensitive to the sun after laser skin resurfacing, and since the daylight hours are fewer during fall and winter there is minimum sun exposure, and patients also spend more time indoors.

However, regardless of the time of year laser skin resurfacing is done, it’s always necessary to wear sunscreen afterwards, especially for the first few weeks. This is particularly important for people in areas that have strong sun throughout the year.
