Laser resurfacing is a non-invasive treatment to remove flaws and improve the overall appearance of the skin. Though you can choose to get a laser skin rejuvenation treatment at any point during the year, there are many reasons why fall and wintertime are optimal. Read on to learn why.

As we age, we can’t deny that our skin can start showing more lines and wrinkles, age spots, and enlarged pores; overall, our skill can appear duller. Fortunately, laser treatments help people around the world target all of these issues to improve the appearance of the skin and turn back the hands of time.

Why Is It Preferable to Treat Skin with Lasers in The Wintertime as Opposed to Summertime?

We turn to DermaTouch RN’s very own Marketing Manager and Aesthetician, Amanda Burns, to provide her expertise as to why the fall and winter seasons are the perfect time for laser rejuvenation compared to summertime.

According to Amanda, “When incorporating laser therapy into your skin care maintenance, it’s important to take into consideration the time of year in which you do so.”

Here are Amanda’s five key reasons why:

  1. REDUCED SUN EXPOSURE: Laser treatments can make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, increasing the risk of sunburn and other complications. In the winter, there is generally less sun exposure because people tend to spend more time indoors or wear protective clothing when outside. This minimizes the chances of UV damage to the treated skin, which is crucial for proper healing and optimal results.
  2. COOLER TEMPERATURES: Laser treatments can cause temporary redness, swelling, and discomfort, like a sunburn. Performing these procedures during the winter months is more comfortable for patients since they can avoid the added discomfort of heat and humidity that often accompanies summer.
  3. EASIER TO AVOID A TAN: Many laser treatments are most effective on untanned skin. Trying to maintain a tan or spending time in the sun during the summer can complicate the treatment process, as it’s essential to have your skin at its natural tone for the best results. It is also advised that you do not use self-tanner before a laser treatment.
  4. LESS SOCIAL ACTIVITIES: Winter is often a time when people participate in fewer outdoor social activities compared to the summer, which means less exposure to potential germs and contaminants in the environment. This can reduce the risk of complications post-laser treatment.
  5. POST-TREATMENT CARE: After laser treatments, it’s important to protect the treated skin from direct sunlight and heat and to follow specific skincare routines recommended by your aesthetician. Winter allows for easier adherence to these post-treatment care instructions since it’s more natural to cover up and stay indoors during the healing process.

“In summary, choosing to undergo laser skincare treatments in the winter can lead to better outcomes, reduced discomfort, and a lower risk of complications, making it the preferred season for many individuals seeking skin rejuvenation and improvement,” states Amanda.

Laser Skin Rejuvenation Options

Now that you know when the best time of the year is to visit your local MedSpa for a laser treatment, what treatment options are there to consider? When it comes to laser skin rejuvenation treatments, there are several to choose from, each using its own technology with varying degrees of improvement based on the technology and the skin concerns being treated.

Here are some of the most popular laser skin rejuvenation options.

Broad Band Light (BBL)

Broadband Light (BBL) laser treatments use cutting-edge, intense pulsed light to improve and target a variety of skin concerns. The BBL is perfect for those looking to treat:

  • Hyperpigmentation
  • Redness
  • Sunspots
  • Fine lines
  • Sun Damage
  • Broken capillaries
  • Rough Texture
  • Visible blood vessels
  • Laxity


As a world-renowned hybrid fractional laser treatment, the Halo uses innovative technology to improve your skin’s texture, pores, size, fine lines and wrinkles, and tone. This treatment requires minimal downtime and is customizable, so practitioners can precisely target skin damage during treatment.

Initial results can be seen within the first 2 to 5 days following treatment, with the most significant improvement seen over the next 2 to 3 weeks. Your skin will continue to improve over time, and the results are long-lasting.

ProFractional Laser

Using a tiny laser beam, the ProFractional laser treats thousands of pinpoint areas of your skin. As an advanced treatment, you can expect to see a significant improvement in the many skin concerns mentioned above. You might notice a tightening effect a few days following treatment, with maximum results seen 4 to 6 months after treatment, thanks to the collagen remodeling of the skin.


CoolPeel is one of the newer technologies on the market that uses the Tetra CO2 laser to resurface and treat many skin concerns, including acne scarring, wrinkles, age spots, and other blemishes, while also balancing tone and tightening the skin. The Tetra delivers energy at the right speed and depths for superficial skin resurfacing results, but without the lingering heat and with minimal downtime. Significant results can be seen within 10 days of treatment, with continued improvement over the next 3 to 6 months.


Moxi helps correct uneven pigmentation and sun damage and improves skin tone and texture. Improvement can be seen after a single treatment, and 3 to 4 treatments are typically recommended.
