4 Laser Treatments To Try This Fall
Head into laser season — aka autumn — with complete confidence.
The cooler months are ripe with change; from the leaves to the weather, things are shifting. Rather than resist it, embrace it: Here are the four best laser treatments this season and how to determine if they’re right for you.
For those looking to prevent the signs of aging: Clear + Brilliant
A fractional laser that treats acne scars, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, and uneven texture, Clear + Brilliant is a jack of all trades laser, earning the nickname “Baby Fraxel”. It’s effective, but it isn’t as harsh as traditional Fraxel treatments.
Whether you’re new to aesthetic treatments or a seasoned pro, this treatment is a great addition to a comprehensive routine. The laser works on all skin tones and types and is best used as a preventative versus a corrective treatment — it primarily prevents visible signs of aging, but it can also prevent the overall impact that the environment has on your skin.
It’s best done during the cooler months because, like all laser treatments, it requires avoiding the sun following the treatment, and with less sunlight available, it’s easier to lay low.
For those looking to treat the signs of aging: CO2 Laser Skin Resurfacing
More aggressive than the Clear + Brilliant, CO2 Skin Resurfacing is an ablative laser that treats not only superficial concerns but also impacts deep into the dermis, removing outer layers of the skin during treatment. Recovery can take anywhere from a couple of days to a couple of weeks, which means staying indoors and avoiding UV rays, but for many, it’s worth it.
The results can be transformative.
However, like most aesthetic treatments, it’s the person performing the treatment that makes the difference. Our team is highly-skilled in laser treatments, and your experience is important to us. In the hands of a highly trained professional, CO2 laser resurfacing is a safe way to dramatically improve your look, and we want to help you look like the best version of yourself.
For those looking to improve their figure: CoolSculpting
Prepare for summer 2023 (seriously, it’s never too early) now with a tried and true body contouring treatment. CoolSculpting freezes and permanently destroys stubborn fat cells to help you achieve your desired figure.
Like most aesthetic treatments, though, it’s all about the long game. Depending on your goals, you’ll likely need multiple sessions spaced out over the months, and beginning the treatments in the fall will ensure your body will reap the benefits in time for bikini season.
For those looking to go bare: Laser Hair Removal
It’s officially time to retire your razor. Laser hair removal is the most popular non-surgical aesthetic treatment, and it’s not hard to see why.
Zap away bothersome hair no matter where it occurs. With improved technology, we can treat anywhere on the body that unwanted growth shows up. Similar to other laser treatments, it may take a few sessions, and it requires avoiding UV rays following the procedure, so plan to start treatment now and emerge next year ready to bear it all.
No matter where you are in your aesthetic journey or what you’re looking to treat, the professionals at SF Area Plastic Surgery are qualified and ready to help boost your confidence and deliver your desired aesthetic. Don’t hesitate or wait any longer. The time to transform is now: 650.964.2200.
