With summer officially here, let’s debunk the myth that you can’t do laser treatments during the summer?
FACT: With diligent sun protection, you CAN safely do laser treatments all year long!
Many laser treatments work by targeting the outermost layer of skin, known as the epidermis. This is the layer where pigment cells, aka melanocytes, reside. Your treatment will make the skin more sensitive to sun exposure so the goal is to protect this layer and avoid irregular pigmentation. To optimize your results & reduce the risk of irregular pigmentation, here are some pro tips.
1. Avoid coming in with a tan or sunburn on the day of your treatment.
2. After treatment, stay on top of your ☀️ protection by…
? Applying a broad-spectrum SPF of 30+ every day, reapplying every 2-3 hours (unless advised not to do so by your dermatologist).
? Wearing sun-protective clothing and wide-brimmed hats to shade the treated areas.
⛅ Avoiding direct sun exposure & stay in the shade.
