We know it sounds crazy, but summer is right around the corner. Though it’s three long months away, every second counts in the world of laser treatments and body contouring. This means if you still need to make “touch ups” in time for summer, the time to act is NOW!
Here’s a closer look at which treatments you can get NOW to enjoy the radiant results you desire all summer long:
Halo™ laser skin resurfacing
Halo is a skin resurfacing treatment great for addressing lines and wrinkles, pore size, skin tone and texture, and overall complexion. As the world’s first hybrid fractional laser, Halo combines ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to simultaneously target the top layer of skin and the deeper tissue underneath. Depending on the intensity of your treatment, Halo can involve a few days to a week or more of social downtime as your skin renews itself. It’s important to not have sun exposure in the weeks following your treatment, which makes March an ideal time to invest in Halo, while it’s still pretty lousy weather outside. Best of all, Halo is a gift to yourself that keeps on giving because you will notice continued improvements to the tone and texture of your skin up to three to six months following treatment (perfect timing for your summer glow!).
Another skin rejuvenation treatment is BBL photofacial. BBL is a broad band light device which applies light energy to your skin, stimulating collagen production and correcting pigmentation concerns caused by sun exposure, including sunspots and freckles. The best time for BBL is also during the winter months, when your skin isn’t tanned or exposed to too much sunlight. What’s so great about BBL is there’s no downtime, you can even reapply makeup immediately after treatment. Plus, you’ll start to see results within a week of treatment, revealing a rejuvenated, younger-looking appearance. For the most dramatic, long-lasting skin renewal, we recommend adding BBL photofacial to your skincare regimen with a series of treatments spaced every four to six weeks. Just be sure to keep your beautiful, youthful-looking skin (a.k.a. your investment) protected by applying sunscreen daily.
Staying out of the sun during the colder months also pays off with chemical peels. Here’s how they work: Chemical peels exfoliate your skin, causing the outermost layer to shed and reveal a smooth, healthy complexion. What’s great about a chemical peel is that’s suitable for most skin types, even darker tones, so if you’re not a candidate for a photofacial or Halo, there’s a good chance a chemical peel will be your ticket to glowing skin. As you know, chemical peels have varying intensities, so downtime varies. There are peels with no downtime to a few days of downtime to prepare your skin for its summer glow. As with all skin resurfacing treatments, your improvements to tone and texture will appear as your skin begins to heal.
