Social DistancingThings are starting to open back up, but most people are still social distancing, at least to a degree. If you are like many of us, you haven’t been strict with your beauty routine during this time. After all, who is going to see you?

Well, now is actually the right time to be tackling the bigger beauty items on your wish list.

Beauty in the Time of Social Distancing

Laser skin treatments are an amazing way to revamp your skin and prejuvenate or rejuvenate. But there is a little bit of a problem with them — right after treatment, you look a little weird.

What happens after laser skin treatments is your skin gets red, there is potentially some swelling and eventually, your skin starts to peel off it patches. Sure, this is all part of the process, revealing the younger, healthier skin underneath. But in the meantime, you are left with one heck of a look.

Social distancing is a drag, but it is actually great for your beauty routine.

Additionally, during the healing process, you have to avoid UV rays. That means staying indoors, ladies.

And here we are, in the time of social distancing. This means avoiding outsiders while you heal is easy, and so is avoiding the actual outside. You can stay home, heal up and no one will be the wiser.

So, yeah, the best time for laser skin treatments is right now.

So, Which Laser Skin Treatment Should You Consider?

Any of them. All of them. Just get out and get a little something lasered, ladies.

Okay, I know you come here for recommendations, so here are a few treatments you should look into.

Intense Pulsed Light Therapy

Also known as IPL, this one isn’t a laser per se, but it is similar in that it uses pulses of tense light to the skin. It can be used to reduces excess pigmentation, create more even skin tone and even eliminate small veins that are visible in the face and neck. It can leave the skin a little red, though peeling should not occur.

Fractional CO2 Lasers

With this treatment, energy is scattered over the treated area. Safe to use on the face, neck and chest, it helps to reduce uneven texture and skin tone, leaving behind skin that is more youthful and attractive. It can cause redness and peeling, so it is pretty much perfect for days spent working from home and watching Netflix on the couch.

Laser Hair Removal

Not only can laser hair removal leave your skin a bit red and funky, but it takes multiple sessions to be effective. This makes it the perfect treatment for social distancing. First, you get to hide the signs of treatment. Second, you have plenty of time to wait for the final results. When the new normal is established, you can emerge from your social hibernation smooth as a baby’s butt.

So there you go, ladies. Social distancing has a lot of drawbacks, but when it comes to make major changes to your aesthetic, it is actually a good thing. So come on, call up your local med spa and get to lasering.
