Weather

Weather Visitors often forget that Las Vegas is located in the Mojave Desert where dry, hot and windy conditions are the norm. In general, Las Vegas tends to be comfortably warm during the spring and fall, extremely hot during July and August, and surprisingly chilly from December through February. There can also – as is typical in the desert – be some extreme temperature fluctuations between mornings and evenings. For example, it is not uncommon in November for the temperature to start out in the low 40’s F° in the morning, climb to the mid 70’s by the afternoon, and then plunge back into the 40’s in the evening.

Medical tourists should take the following precautions, particularly during the summer months:

Drink Lots of Water

Unless contraindicated by your doctor, drink more water than you are used to at home – even if you don´t feel thirsty. Although the low humidity tempers the heat, you will still get dehydrated rapidly if you don´t drink liquids frequently. Dehydration is a serious concern for anyone, but it is especially dangerous for someone who has had a recent surgery as it will hinder the healing process.

Use Saline Nasal Spray

Summers are not only hot, but they are extremely dry. If you are traveling between June and eptember make sure to pack some saline nasal spray to keep your airways moist. Not only will you feel more comfortable, but you will protect your nasal passages from potential nose bleeds.

Sunscreen

Protect yourself from the desert sun by using sunscreen, sunglasses, and a hat. Las Vegas boasts more than 300 days of sunshine a year, making it a golfer’s paradise and an attractive destination for sun worshippers. However, too much sun can also be dangerous. Patients who have undergone plastic surgery must be especially careful to keep out of the sun as it can hinder healing and promote unattractive scarring.

To keep yourself protected:

  • Avoid exposure between 10 am and 4 pm
  • Use a sunscreen with a SPF (Sun Protection Factor) of 30 or greater (higher if you are fair skinned)
  • Use a sunscreen that protects against both UVA and UVB radiation
  • Use sunglasses that offer UVA protection
  • Wear a hat

Moisturizing Cream

Whether hot or cold, Las Vegas’ dry windy conditions can dehydrate your skin. Put on a good moisturizing cream in the morning and before you go to bed to keep your skin nicely hydrated.
