While we’re lucky enough to enjoy sunny days year-round in Florida, it’s typically easier to protect your skin from UV rays when it’s not beach season. Because laser treatments can make your skin more sensitive to sunlight, winter is the perfect time to try them. At Florida West Coast Skin and Cancer Center, board-certified dermatologist Dr. Michael Scannon and our highly qualified team offer several cosmetic laser options to help you achieve your aesthetic goals.
Try Laser Pigment Removal For an Even Skin Tone
Laser pigment removal treatments can fight discoloration issues if you struggle with an uneven complexion. During this treatment, a high-intensity beam of light passes through the surface of your skin to break up small particles of pigment so your body can eliminate them.
Laser treatments are often used for:
- Sunspot and age spot removal.
- Reducing the appearance of birthmarks.
- Fading freckles.
- Treating broken capillaries or facial redness.
- Removing permanent makeup or tattoos.
- Reducing hyperpigmentation and acne scars.
This treatment typically requires minimal downtime, though you might experience mild swelling or redness for the first couple of days after your appointment. It’s best to minimize sun exposure before and after your laser treatment, so winter is the perfect time to even out your skin tone.
Start Laser Hair Removal for Smoother Skin by Summer
From chin whiskers to your bikini line, laser hair removal is an effective, long-lasting way to get rid of unwanted hair. During treatment, the laser precisely targets hair follicles to delay or inhibit future growth. Tanned skin can make laser hair removal more difficult, so this treatment is ideal for winter. Full removal typically takes 3 to 5 sessions spaced 4 to 8 weeks apart, so starting now is the best way to achieve smoother, hairless skin by summer.
