Winter is ideal for laser procedures
January 13, 2012
"It's very important to avoid the sun as much as possible and it's a lot easier to do that in the winter time than it is in the middle of the summer," a Texas-based plastic surgeon recently told KTSM-TV News.
The procedure uses light to repair wrinkles, sun damage and scarring.
"Doing this type of fractional resurfacing improves skin texture, skin color, pore size, acne scarring, any kind of scarring issues that we may have," the physician told the news provider.
While a licensed, board-certified plastic surgeon can discuss what type of skin resurfacing is best for you, it's important to note that results often take as long as several months to completely appear. However, the procedure does provide long-lasting results.
ASAPS reports that the average cost for a laser skin resurfacing treatment in 2010 was $2,232.
