Ask the Doctor: Winter Treatments

Article-Ask the Doctor: Winter Treatments

Q: Are there any cosmetic procedures that are best done in wintertime?

Joel Schlessinger, M.D., F.A.A.D.,
a: Actually, all of our cosmetic procedures can be done in wintertime, and many are particularly suited to that season. For example, laser hair removal is best done during months when the areas won't be tanned or exposed to sunlight.

Additionally, tumescent liposuction is best done when swimsuit season hasn't arrived, as the garments worn after the procedure are somewhat challenging to wear when the weather is hot. Laser treatments for leg veins and other concerns are also best done when sunlight and tanning aren't a concern.

On the other hand, Botox and fillers are in season year round!
