We have now spent nearly six months social distancing and staying home to limit the spread of COVID-19. Throughout this pandemic, we have all needed to find ways to continue living our lives and enjoying our days while taking the necessary precautions. One way many people have been keeping their spirits up at home is by making an investment in their appearance.
Cosmetic treatments can be a great way to boost your self-confidence and feel a bit closer to “normal” throughout the pandemic. In fact, social distancing creates the perfect opportunity to get some of the treatments you may not have considered when you were going to the office and maintaining a full social calendar. Take a look at these procedures that are especially convenient during your time at home.
Fractionated Laser Facial Rejuvenation
Fractionated laser facial rejuvenation is a comprehensive and effective way to treat a variety of cosmetic concerns at the same time. Your laser procedure can treat wrinkles, age spots, acne scars, an uneven skin texture or uneven complexion, and more. We offer a variety of options customized to treat your top priorities, including laser skin resurfacing with Fraxel, LaseMD™, PicoSure®, and DOT™. For other cosmetic goals like facial veins and facial redness, we offer treatments like the VBeam® Prima laser and intense pulsed light or IPL therapy. If you want to look brighter and more rested on all those video calls, a laser treatment is often a powerful way to get the results you want.
Laser treatments often require recovery time, and they also require to you avoid sun exposure before and after the procedure to minimize your risk for side effects. During this time of social distancing, those precautions are easier to follow because you are already staying inside limiting your social engagements.
Laser Hair Removal
As with laser facial rejuvenation, laser hair removal produces the best results when you avoid sun exposure before and after each treatment. The current social distancing precautions as well as the end of summer make this the perfect time to start a hair removal treatment plan.
In addition, laser hair removal takes multiple treatments to produce lasting results, with approximately a month or more between each session. While many patients start seeing some results right away, it often takes three to six months before you will see the full results you want, though this varies from person to person. If you start your hair removal treatments now, you’re likely to have the smooth skin you want by the time the spring rolls around and swimsuit weather reappears.
As an added bonus, now is an especially great time for laser hair removal because we are offering a special discount on the procedure in September. You’ll receive 10% off a previously treated area and 15% off new areas. See our current skin care specials for the details.
Non-Surgical Fat Reduction Under the Chin
Now that most of us are spending far more time on video calls, many people are struggling with the same issue: a “double chin.” How many of us have spent valuable time trying to find that perfect angle for a video call that doesn’t give us a double chin?
Instead of facing that insecurity every day, now is a great time to get non-surgical fat reduction under the chin. Our practice offers multiple options, including Kybella® injections and CoolSculpting® for the double chin. Both of these treatments offer long-term results, so unless you gain weight in the future, you can expect to keep enjoying a slimmer chin and neck until long after social distancing is over.
The social distancing from COVID-19 has taught us a lot about ourselves, our families, and the little joys we appreciate in life. For many of us, it has also shown that even when we aren’t going out and meeting up with friends, we still feel more confident when we look our best. The cosmetic treatments above can allow you to make this pandemic an opportunity to invest in yourself. To start that process, call Dermatology Associates of Atlanta to schedule your appointment.
