Well summer is over, school is back in and the weather has changed from hot and sunny to warm and sunny with a bit of rain in between, in other words, fall.
When this change to fall comes along I receive frequent requests by clients to obtain laser treatment to eliminate their bothersome brown spots and unsightly spider veins.
I endeavour to educate my clients as to the best time or season in which they should pursue having each of these treatments. You guessed it! Best time for laser treatment of brown spots and spider veins is in the fall and winter.
Fall and Winter is the Best Time
You are probably wondering why this is the best time? Most clients inquire about getting each of these laser treatments just as the summer arrives. It is hot and sunny daily, the shorts, sundresses and bathing suits come out and the skin is exposed more and more. It seems to make sense that you would want to improve your skin right at the time it is more exposed.
The truth is, laser treatment for both brown spots and veins are best booked and treated two to three months prior to summer arriving.
There are a number of reasons why fall and winter are the best seasons to schedule your vein and brown spot treatments
- Long pants and tights will hide the mild bruising and swelling from treatment.
- Compression stockings tend to be more comfortable to wear in cooler months.
- Treated areas are less likely to be exposed to sun, which can cause discolouration while the veins are being absorbed by the body, gradual fading in 8 to 12 weeks.
Brown Spots (Age Spots) Treatment
- You are not out in the sun as much and are wearing more protective clothing.
- Sun exposure will cause your skin to darken or become photo-damaged.
- After laser procedure, exposure to sun could cause further hyperpigmentation to already photosensitive skin.
- Post brown-spot treatment gradual fading in 3 weeks.
