Laser Skin Resurfacing in Kansas City: Why You Should Fall in Love with Lasers in the Fall and Winter

One of the coolest aspects of skin resurfacing is that technology is always advancing to help us deliver beautifully rejuvenating results to treat SO many concerns. Would you believe that one of our favorite technologies, laser skin resurfacing, has been around since the 1960s?! Whether it’s to reduce unwanted hair or improve the appearance of sun damage and fine lines, lasers for skin resurfacing are truly miraculous in what they can achieve.

One of the biggest drawbacks with lasers is that they can leave your skin sensitive to the sun after treatment, making fall and winter the BEST time to get your laser treatments. Today we wanted to discuss why the cooler months are the best time for lasers and summarize our laser skin resurfacing in Kansas City at AesthetiCare

AesthetiCare serves clients from all over the Kansas City metro area with our two locations in Leawood and Liberty. Our clients range in age, skin type, concerns, and goals for their skin, so we make sure we can treat all kinds of skin! 

Keep reading to learn all about our laser skin resurfacing and why it’s best for the fall and winter months 👇

Why fall or winter is the best time for laser skin resurfacing treatments 

Less sun exposure

With any laser procedure, we will always tell you to protect your skin and stay out of the sun afterward. This is because your skin is in its healing process and is especially susceptible to the sun’s harsh rays. 

How lasers rejuvenate your skin is through precise, controlled injuries that kickstart the healing process, producing more collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are the main components of healthy, smooth, and plump skin, A.K.A. how your skin rejuvenates! You don’t want to disrupt this process with sun exposure.

All of this is to say, it’s much easier to avoid sun exposure or damage when the sun is much less powerful in the fall and winter months! 

It boils down to science: the sun is less harsh in the northern hemisphere during these months because of the tilt of the Earth’s axis 🌎 During spring and summer, North America is tilted toward the sun, and in the fall and winter, it’s tilted away, making the days colder and shorter, and sunlight is less powerful. This is a win for your skin’s recovery from laser treatments!

Easier to cover your skin

Since laser skin resurfacing isn’t limited to your face, you may receive it on other areas of the body that are easy to cover with clothing to protect it while it heals! 

Say you’re getting laser hair removal—a type of laser skin resurfacing. If it’s during the summer, you probably don’t want to spend your days inside wearing full length pants to protect your skin 🙃 Our clients find it way easier when it’s cooler outside to wear protective clothing over their treatment areas like the arms, chest, and other spots while their laser skin resurfacing treatments heal.

Healing that doesn’t disrupt your routine

Since it’s pretty difficult to avoid the sun or wear long sleeves, etc. during spring and summer, you might feel like your laser skin resurfacing treatment will totally disrupt your routine. You shouldn’t have to worry about ultra-sensitive skin when you want to meet the gals for patio happy hour! 🌞 

If you get your laser treatments in the winter, you can rest easy knowing that you can wear the right attire to protect your skin and won’t be as susceptible to a sunburn, though we always recommend SPF!

MicroLaser Peel

MicroLaser Peel uses a scanning erbium laser to remove the outer layers of your skin in a safe, precise manner. Healthy skin cells replace the dead ones to improve texture and clarity of your skin.

Treatable conditions:

Most patients experience redness and peeling during the healing period, as well as mild to moderate swelling.

Patients experience results very quickly. Within a week, there will be a better “glow” to the skin, and results will continue to improve over the next 6 months!

ProFractional Laser

ProFractional Laser is our strongest treatment for laser skin resurfacing in Kansas City. ProFractional Laser (manufactured by Sciton, a leader in laser technology) uses a technique to “aerate” skin tissue and stimulate natural collagen growth. The depth we choose will be based upon your skin condition and your age.

In this treatment, a portion of the skin is left intact which drastically reduces the healing time. ProFractional Laser is ideal for improving textural issues such as wrinkles and acne scars. Because a large portion of the skin is left intact, healing time is much faster than other ablative laser treatments.

Treatable conditions:

  • Wrinkles
  • Acne Scars
  • Sun Damage
  • Enlarged Pores
  • Poor Skin Tone
  • Texture

Treatable areas:

  • Face

Recovery & Results

The social downtime while your skin recovers varies based on the depth of your treatment and your skin’s unique healing process. Some clients might take 3 to 4 days of social downtime while others may take up to 12 days until they feel comfortable with their healing status—perfect for working from home!

The ProFractional Laser improves skin imperfections including acne scars, skin pigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, texture and tone of the skin, and the effects of sun damage.

Laser hair removal

Laser hair removal is a safe and effective procedure that lets you throw your razor away for good. This treatment reduces or eliminates unwanted hair on almost any part of the body except near the eyes. AesthetiCare owns four FDA-approved lasers for hair removal!
