Though many complain about their complexion during the winter, it appears as though the colder season may be the best time to undergo a variety of skin-related cosmetic procedures. Tanned skin may be resistant to many laser procedures, including the removal of sun spots, hyperpigmentation or addressing unwanted hair.
The winter also offers more opportunities to cover-up scars and other side effects as one heals from a cosmetic procedure, such as spider and thread vein treatment by sclerotherapy. Vein treatments require compression stockings for up to 3 days and tend to look worse, before they get better.
Many people exfoliate all year round using light techniques such as laser photofacial or chemical peels. Both have virtually no side effects, do not require anesthetic, is ideal for skin that is sensitive and can give skin a healthy-looking glow.
Choosing to undergo stronger facial resurfacing with fractional CO2 laser which requires a week of at-home healing and limited exposure to UV rays is also easier. The early sunset, holiday time and layers of clothing during the winter naturally compliments the healing process.
Cosmetic surgery statistics from the British College of Aesthetic Medicine show a steady increase in laser and facial rejuvenation procedures over the past decade.
