Laser TReatments performed in Winter

Your skin gets a best friend like cold weather and a lower UV index when it comes to getting beauty procedures done. Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation like the dark brown or pink marks left over after having an acne break out is prevented by low temperature and shorter colder days, which can be further worsened by sun exposure. It’s also easier to recover discreetly during the hibernation season and that’s a fact. Here we have the best laser treatments to try this winter as follows;

1)Ablative and Non Ablative Lasers

Expert dermatologist recommends ablative and nonablative laser procedures for skin rejuvenation like face, neck, chest, hands, treatment of brown spots, and eyelid skin laxity, for winters. Beams of energy to the skin is precisely delivered by ablative and nonablative laser resurfacing deliver precisely improves photodamaged skin like wrinkles, brown spots, skin laxity, scars, and skin tone. More dramatic, long-lasting results are produced by ablative lasers, yet are associated with some downtime. In contrast, more subtle improvement requires multiple treatments, yet has minimal to no downtime which is created by nonablative lasers. Furthermore, areas of redness and pigmentary changes can be targeted by visible light non-ablative laser devices.


Winter is an ideal time for leg treatments as cooler temps encourage us to bring on longer hemlines and woolen pants. The treatment of spider veins also known as sclerotherapy is another great option as Chuang proposes that “wearing compression stockings improves results.”

According to Margaret Mann, MD, Associate Professor and Director of Aesthetic Dermatology at Case Western School of Medicine, sclerotherapy can “get those legs in tiptop shape for next spring and summer.” Dr. Mann explains that “sclerotherapy is still the best treatment for spider veins: it requires no numbing, has minimal discomfort, and no downtime.” despite all the other various laser treatments. Before the gets better it often looks worse after treatment therefore, treating in the colder months “gives the body plenty of time for any possible discoloration to resolve” is counseled by Dr. Mann.

Laser Hair Removal

Laser hair removal is another treatment to consider during the winter months. Treatment of the legs can be tricky in the sunnier months as laser hair removal can be performed at any time of the year. Laser hair removal’s laser cannot tell the difference between the pigment in the hair follicle and pigment from a tan, which can leave areas of hypo-pigmentation after treatment.

Kybella and Coolmini

By using kybella or cool mini you can melt away your double chin is a great treatment option during the frosty months. Kybella dissolves fat as it is the same component that dissolves the fat we eat during digestion, while coolmini freezes fat the cold causing the temperature-sensitive fat cells to die. Scars and turtlenecks can easily conceal the swelling which some patients might experience after their procedure.
