We certainly don’t want to presume to tell you that you need a laser or chemical peel treatment, but if you’re thinking about choosing either, we collected three reasons why the New Year is a particularly good time to follow-up.
1. Laser treatments and chemical peels are both effective ways to rejuvenate your appearance and give rapid results. Many people start the New Year off by making resolutions to eat a healthier diet or exercise more. It can be tough to keep to these types of long-term plans when you don’t necessarily see any benefits for a while. However, the feeling of well-being and confidence from getting either laser treatments or chemical peels can give you the motivation to carry on and stick to your resolutions.
2. It’s strongly recommended to avoid strong sunlight before, during, and especially after laser treatments and chemical peels, while your skin heals, and any inflammation goes down. Winter time is therefore the ideal time of year to plan these treatments. During winter, the damaging UV rays are weaker, there are fewer hours of sunlight in the day, and we typically stay indoors for longer periods. We also wear more clothing in the winter, which in turn provides more protection. These factors, taken together, can be especially helpful when you have a series of treatments, and you may need to avoid direct sunshine over an extended period. Several skin conditions, such as hyperpigmentation, are exacerbated during the summer months. Winter is a perfect time to take care of problems that are caused by excess sun exposure.
3. Dry skin typically is worse during the winter months. Getting a chemical peel in the winter helps to remove the dead skin layers, which in turn increases your skin’s ability to absorb winter skin care products such as moisturizers. Rather than disrupting your skin care routine, a chemical peel can actually enhance your ability to treat dry skin.
Skin Rejuvenation at Your Laser Skin Care
Perhaps the best argument is this: take good care of your complexion during the cooler months and you’ll be better prepared to enjoy the sun by the time the warmer summer months come along. In moderation, of course!

It’s no secret that laser treatments are at the forefront of skin care technology right now. They are well known for their versatility and effectiveness, and require no downtime after a treatment. In the relatively short amount of time they have been around, lasers have already mastered hair removal, as well as reduction of scars, stretch marks, and sun damage. Here are some of our favorite laser treatments:
Laser Skin Resurfacing
The Palomar Starlux 1540 Fractional Laser is a state-of-the-art technology that can treat dark spots, scars, wrinkles, stretch marks, and more. This treatment stimulates the dermis to form new healthy tissue and collagen. The laser is non-ablative, which means the outer layer of skin is not removed, so healing happens much faster.
Laser Vein Therapy
Unsightly spider or varicose veins can be not only aesthetically unpleasant, but also painful. Laser vein therapy is the minimally invasive way to remove varicose veins as well as port wine stains, rosacea and other vascular birthmarks. The laser targets diseased blood vessels, delivering a controlled amount of heat. The upper layers of skin are protected with a patented Dynamic Cooling Device and side effects are minimal.
Laser Skin Tightening
The Candela YAG Laser can be used to rejuvenate the skin by diminishing the appearance of wrinkles and acne scars, and by tightening sagging skin. Laser skin tightening works by heating up the existing collagen which in turn triggers new collagen formation. This process improves facial contours and smoothes out wrinkles, leaving you with plump, youthful skin.
