With family photoshoots around the corner, holiday cards being sent out to virtually everyone you know, and having to see people you haven’t seen all year at upcoming holiday parties, it can feel like the stress is on to look and feel your best.
Even though dieting and finding the perfect thing to wear to all of these occasions will help, one of the best things you can do is take good care of your skin. With laser from Dr. Toni Stockton, she can help to correct a host of issues including hyperpigmentation, fine lines and wrinkles, sun spots, acne scars, and more. But even though all of these laser treatments can do wonders for your skin, it still has many people wondering, “Will it give me enough time to heal before the holidays?” To help answer this question, let’s take a closer look.
Average Recovery Time
It’s hard to say for certain how your skin will react to laser treatments like skin resurfacing— especially if you’ve never had this type of treatment before. However, we can say that on average, it takes patients about one to two weeks to heal. So, as long as you schedule your treatment ahead of time, you shouldn’t have to worry about peeling or redness before photos or parties.
Depends on the Treatment
Depending on the area being treated and the type of treatment that Dr. Toni Stockton recommends will help determine whether or not you will be ready in time for the holidays. For instance, although some results can be obtained in just one session, Dr. Toni Stockton often recommends that patients get multiple treatment sessions done.
During your initial consultation, make sure to communicate with Dr. Stockton what results you want and by what time— that way she can create the best plan for your skin in the right amount of time.
