Why Winter Is the Best Time to Get Laser Treatments

Laser treatments are some of the most popular and effective non-surgical options available. From reducing body hair to rejuvenating the skin, they can be used for a variety of different purposes. But when it comes to undergoing treatment, you may be wondering if there is an ideal time to schedule your first sessions. Although patients can undergo laser treatments anytime of the year, winter is ideal for the following reasons:

Protection from the Sun

Patients cannot undergo laser hair removal if their skin has a recent suntan or sunburn, which can be tricky to avoid during summer. But in winter, your skin is more likely to fade to its natural color. Also, it’s important to protect recently treated areas from the sun. Exposing treated areas to the sun may cause hyperpigmentation (dark spots) or skin damage. Since most people cozy up with multiple layers of clothing during winter, it’s easy to keep treated areas protected. And while laser treatments usually produce only mild side effects, any post-treatment redness can also be covered up with clothing during the colder months.

Get a Head Start on Your Summer Look

Laser hair removal typically takes several treatment sessions to produce desired results, which is why winter is the best time to start. In general, it may take around 3-5 treatments for optimal hair reduction, depending on your skin type and how your body reacts to treatment. If you start your sessions in winter, you’ll be able to bare your fuzz-free body at the beach as soon as the temperatures start to rise again. Additionally, laser hair removal can sometimes cause patchy regrowth when you’re in between sessions. But during winter, you can easily cover up stubbly legs under long pants.

Pamper Irritated Skin

Winter exposes our skin to the harsh elements, and it is constantly being dried out by indoor heating as well. As a result, bothersome skin conditions tend to flare up during this time. With laser skin resurfacing treatments, your skin will get the extra help it needs for healthy cell growth and turnover. When summer comes around, you’ll already have a vibrant complexion that glows with health.

Beautiful summer skin starts this winter. With a full range of laser treatments offered by the specialists at Aesthetx, you’ll have radiant, hair-free skin as soon as the warmer months approach.

Invest in Yourself; Cosmetic Procedures You Can Get with Your Tax Return

If you’re one of the 66% of Americans that expects a tax return this year, then you’re probably already trying to decide on how you’ll treat yourself. What better way is there to spend your money than a cosmetic treatment that could improve your confidence and self-esteem? You won’t be the first to spend their tax return on a cosmetic procedure: one RealSelf poll found that at least 29% of its community will do just that. Take some time to review some perfect procedures to get with your tax return, because it’s not a splurge—it’s an investment.

VI Peel

Don’t want to go too crazy with your newfound riches? A VI Peel will give you flawless, rejuvenated skin with none of the downtime of a major procedure. The VI Peel is one of the most advanced chemical peels in the industry because it has the power to reduce wrinkles, sun damage, and other blemishes—while also being relatively painless. Best of all, it works with all skin types.

Laser Hair Removal

Aesthetx offers the ClearScan and the BBL treatment for laser hair removal. Laser hair removal is a completely nonsurgical treatment that uses light or laser energy to remove hair from any area you want. In just a few treatments, you can have smooth, hairless skin forever. Think of all the money you’ll save when you no longer have to shell out your hard-earned money for razors and waxing services year after year!

Fat Transfer

If you’re going to use your tax return on one piece of technology, use it with Aesthex’s state-of-the-art fat grafting technologies: Hydrasolve and Puregraft. Fat transfers are extremely popular ways to restore fullness to the face or add subtle volume to the breasts and buttocks. Hydrasolve is an innovative liposuction technique that’s as gentle on the fatty tissue as possible, while Puregraft processes the fat with unparalleled pureness and cleanliness. Whether you want natural fullness in the breast, buttocks, or face, Aesthetx has the best tools for the job.


You might not be able to cover the entire cost with your tax return, but the facelift is completely worth it. By tightening and lifting sagging skin, a facelift can eliminate deep wrinkles on the face and sagging jowls on the chin and neck. You’ll be able to remove decades off of your real age and enjoy results that last for an incredibly long time. You can’t put a price on feeling young again.

What’s a tax return to you? To a lot of people, it’s almost like a nice, unexpected present that comes once every spring time. Use it well by contacting Aesthetx for a consultation on their wonderful cosmetic procedures.
