While there is no “perfect” time to recover from a laser treatment, there is, in fact, an optimal time to have your Laser Treatment performed. Many of our patient’s opt to have their treatments completed in the winter months—specifically, after the Holidays & when the sun isn’t so bright overhead. It helps to have a procedure performed in the winter because not only will any sunlight cause less damage, but you’ll also more than likely to have less chaotic schedules.

One of Artemedica’s laser treatments which is perfect for this time of the year is the Weekend Laser Peel. Performed by Eye, Laser & Cosmetic Specialist Alice Chiang, M.D., the Weekend Laser Peel is performed in a half hour & you can recover in as little as 2-3 days.

What is a Weekend Laser Peel?weekend-laser-treatment-peel-santa-rosa

The Weekend Laser Peel (also referred to as a Micro Laser Peel) is a superficial laser resurfacing treatment that uses an Erbium YAG laser to improve the following:

  • Fine lines & wrinkles
  • Age spots & sun damage
  • Enlarged pore size
  • Overall skin tone & texture
  • Provide a more youthful appearance

If you think you may need a deeper laser resurfacing treatment, Dr. Chiang also offers the In-Office Laser Resurfacing (comparable to the Fraxel) which offers a much deeper treatment and a longer recovery period. You can find out more about the In-Office Laser Resurfacing here.
