Now that summer is here, cosmetic procedures can become more appealing than ever. It is that time to ditch the winter clothes and hit the beaches looking our absolute best. After undergoing certain cosmetic procedures, the hot weather and extra sun exposure can negatively influence your recovery time.
Dangers That The Summer Can Pose
The intense sunlight exposure and heat is not great for your recovery. Unless you take precautions, swelling may take longer to settle, and the chances of minor bleeding from surgical sites are higher. Treatments like laser resurfacing require around six weeks of reduced sun exposure, which can be a challenge when you are desperate to get out and enjoy yourself during the summer or have a family vacation scheduled.
