Spring Deadline: Must-Have Laser Treatments

Posted by Dr. Patrick Proffer on March 9, 2021

older-woman-at-beachWith spring quickly approaching, women are starting to think about getting their skin warm-weather ready. Whether you’re looking for hair removal, skin tightening, or something in-between, laser treatments are the answer.

It’s important to note that laser treatments cause photosensitivity, meaning the best time to have these procedures done is during the cooler months when skin is more likely to be covered.

In other words, you’re facing a looming skincare deadline as the weather begins to warm up.

Hair Removal

The most obvious must-have laser treatment for those warm weather styles is laser hair removal. This procedure not only leaves your skin looking and feeling smooth, but also saves you the time (and money) you’d normally spend shaving.

Depending on the area of your body where you want hair removed, complete removal may take several treatments. The sooner you get started the better. Here are some areas to consider getting done in time for spring:

  • Legs
  • Underarms
  • Arms
  • Bikini
  • Face

Various factors affect the appearance of your skin, from aging to excessive sun exposure. If you crave younger looking skin this spring, consider a photofacial. These treatments use pulsed light technology to restore skin to its natural state.

Don’t be misled by the name; photofacials can be done on more areas than just your face, including:

  • Neck
  • Hands
  • Chest
  • Upper back
  • Shoulders

Skin Tightening

As we age, we all suffer from loose skin. This issue often makes women self-conscious and may even prevent you from participating in certain events — think high school reunion — out of embarrassment.

Enter: SkinTyte. Using gentle, safe infrared pulsed light, SkinTyte’s skin-firming treatments leave you with more toned skin and help to reduce the signs of aging. They can be performed on the following areas:

  • Neck
  • Abdomen
  • Thighs
  • Arms

Acne Treatments

Despite popular belief, teenagers aren’t the only ones who often face acne problems. Adult acne is a serious issue and can disrupt your life.

Whether it’s you or your teen who’s dealing with acne, laser treatments can help. Using infrared energy, ThermaScan reduces the appearance of acne and acne scarring by remodeling collagen and treating overactive sebaceous glands.
