Why Fall is the Right Time for Skin Rejuvenation Therapy

Why Fall is the Right Time for Skin Rejuvenation Therapy | Newport Tattoo Removal

Laser skin rejuvenation is a revolutionary anti-aging treatment that can be used to care for a variety of conditions and help you to love the you that you see when you look in the mirror. The safe and gentle PicoSure lasers used at Newport Tattoo Removal use small bursts of light to break up discoloration and help stimulate collagen generation. This allows the therapy to be used for techniques ranging from dark spot removal to lessening the appearance of wrinkles or sagging skin.

While there is no bad time to go in for skin rejuvenation treatment, there’s no better time than in the fall. Although you can receive effective treatment year-round, these reasons help to highlight why fall is the ideal season for your skin rejuvenation treatment.

Less Temptation to Stay in the Sun

Although laser skin rejuvenation is a treatment with minimal discomfort, there can still be some irritation and sensitivity in the treated area in the hours immediately following therapy. Patients are often advised to avoid excessive exposure to direct sunlight after treatment, and the fall makes this a much easier task. Summer days and trips to the beach go hand in hand, and while our fall days are often still warm and beautiful, it can be a little less tempting to spend a day laying out in October than it is in August.

Comfortable Temperatures to Keep You Covered

When you have a laser skin rejuvenation session, you don’t have to remain completely out of the sun, however, it is recommended that you keep the affected area covered as much as possible following a session. This can be challenging in the middle of summer when temperatures are at their peak and any extra layers turn your internal temperature up in a hurry. With fall weather bringing in slightly cooler days, it’s more comfortable to throw on a long-sleeved shirt or wear a hat that provides shade for your face.

Keeping Skin Hydrated is Easier

One of the great things about living in Newport Beach, California is that you don’t have to deal with the long, cold winters of some other parts of the country, but that doesn’t mean that some of the winter staples don’t still show up from time to time. On cooler, drier days, the skin that received laser treatment may feel enhanced irritation from the weather conditions. Getting your treatments done in the fall reduces the chances of experiencing a day like that.

Look Great for the Holidays

While there is no bad time to look your best, there are few times better than late fall and early winter. From getting dressed up in a fun costume for Halloween to getting together with family for Thanksgiving and the winter holidays, the season is full of times to get together with friends, family and maybe a camera. If you start your skin rejuvenation treatment in early fall you’ll be wrapping up treatment just in time to look your best when you need it the most!

Summer is winding down which means the perfect time to get your skin rejuvenation therapy is just around the corner. Contact Newport Tattoo Removal today for a consultation to learn what our professional technicians can do for you.

What Are Dark Spots and How You Can Treat Yours | Newport Tattoo Removal

One of the most common aesthetic skin conditions is the appearance of unwanted spots and splotches. Spotting can come in a variety of forms and for a variety of reasons, but what they all have in common is that if you don’t like the spots you’ve developed, there’s nothing you want more than to see them go away. The good news is it’s never been easier to treat dark spots. If you have questions about your dark spots, we’ve got everything you need to know.

What Are Dark Spots?

As the name implies, dark spots are discolorations of the skin where increased pigmentation creates a noticeable change of hue in your skin. Although dark spots can be a sign of other more serious medical conditions, and you should always have new, unexplained spots examined by a dermatologist to be safe, they are often not harmful but instead represent a purely aesthetic concern.

What Causes Dark Spots?

There are many different conditions that can present as dark spots, and as a result there are many causes of dark spots. While this is not an exhaustive list of possible causes for your dark spots, some of the most common causes include:

  • Hormonal causes: As the hormones inside of your body change, it can have the effect of triggering the development of new dark spots on your skin. The most common ways this is seen is with melasma, spotting which occurs during pregnancy, and age spots.
  • Medication side effects: While there are obviously many benefits to taking medication, sometimes it also comes with unwanted side effects. In some cases, the medications you are on may be contributing to the development of dark spots on your skin.
  • Scarring: Another common cause of dark spots is scarring, either from cuts or skin conditions, such as acne scarring. The damaged skin may take on a new, discolored appearance.
  • Skin conditions: Some common skin conditions can result in dark spots as a natural byproduct of the condition. If you have spotting from a skin condition it’s important to speak with a medical professional to ensure any necessary treatment is prescribed.
  • Sun exposure: The sun is one of your skin’s greatest enemies, and spotting is just another of the negative side effects of extended time outdoors without proper SPF protection.

How Can You Remove Your Dark Spots?
