Sun exposure isn’t ideal for after many cosmetic procedures. With the long days of summer behind us we move into the shorter, cooler, days of fall. With those days we get boots, sweaters, everything pumpkin and a slight chill in the air.
For most, the cooler weather means more time indoors and less time being exposed to UV rays outdoors. While there’s never a bad time to put your best skin forward, some seasons are better than others for certain skincare procedures. Any procedure that requires abstinence from direct sunlight is best saved for the end of year. Here are our four favorite cosmetic procedures to get this fall at Dermatology Center of Acadiana, and why we love to do them when the summer fun is over.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal involves a series of treatments over a number of months to achieve desired results. When you begin your series of laser hair removal treatments in the fall, you have months to plan treatments and prepare for the next year’s swimsuit season. Not only that, laser hair removal and sun exposure just do not mix. Starting your treatments in the cooler months of fall means you are more likely to avoid overexposure to the sun during your healing process. Make sure that you do not miss our Laser Hair Removal special this month at DCA! We are offering BOGO laser hair removal procedures during the month of October. To schedule your consultation, make sure to call us at 337-235-6886.
Laser Tattoo Removal
Laser tattoo removal is another of our favorite laser treatments (see the full list of our favorite laser treatments). As with laser hair removal, it is imperative to avoid sun exposure during the healing process. After a laser tattoo removal session, it is recommended to avoid submerging in water, at least for a few days; something you are unlikely to do during the fall anyways! Additionally, you are already wearing long sleeves and pants in the cooler months, why not take advantage of sweater weather to mask the treatment areas? We use the Enlighten Laser Tattoo Removal System which supplies dual wavelengths and multiple pulse speeds to increase its efficacy at removing a variety of ink colors. If you have one you have been thinking about removing, call us for a consultation at 337-235-6886.
Scheduling the best time to get a chemical peel can be a challenge for many. Because the face must heal and begin creating new layers of skin to replace those damaged by the chemical peel process, it is always recommended to avoid sun exposure while healing. The Fall months bring fewer days outside, making it a perfect time to get a chemical peel. It is also a great way to start a new season and help erase month’s worth of damage to your skin from outdoor exposure over the summer. To help ease the seasonal transition and get your Fall glow on, we are offering $50 off of the Vi Peel all October long!
Micro-needling is a procedure that involves using fine needles to penetrate the skin, which invokes a controlled skin injury that actually helps to rejuvenate the skin and produce more collagen. Your body’s own collagen production takes over and helps to fill and smooth wrinkles and lines on the face. Because you want to avoid excess sun exposure, Fall is a great time to have micro-needling done. However, no matter what time of year you choose to get your micro-needling procedure done at Dermatology Center of Acadiana, sunscreen is a must.
