Winter may not come to mind as an optimal time for self-care and treatments, but it has a lot of potential for pleasant results. Let’s look at a few different treatments that will be beneficial to do in the winter.
Facial peels, or chemical peels, are using the application of chemicals to the face that causes the topmost layer of skin to peel off and reveal new skin underneath. Peels come in varying strengths and they treat conditions such as:
- Fine lines
- Moderate wrinkles
- Some acne
- Sun damage
A facial peel will get rid of dry, dull skin. It will allow the growth of new, youthful skin. You will look much better and have a glow after treatment.
Getting a peel in the winter is advisable because the sun is not nearly as strong and peels can leave the skin sensitive. It’s also important to begin a regime of wearing high SPF sunscreen for the best results.
Laser hair removal is a process that uses concentrated light from lasers to inhibit the growth of hair by damaging the hair follicles. This process allows the removal of unwanted body hair from areas such as:
- Bikini line
Getting laser hair removal in the winter is a good option because preparation for the procedure involves avoiding sun exposure, tanning, and waxing. You will be more easily able to prepare in the winter. Then, when spring and summer hit, you can show off your new smooth skin.
Lasers use light and heat to cause the skin to produce collagen and elastin. They can also remove dead skin and blemishes. Lasers can be used to treat numerous skin issues and conditions, including:
- Age spots
- Certain scarring
- Lax skin
- Sun damage
Getting this treatment in winter is ideal because you can avoid sun exposure while you heal, and by the time warmer weather rolls around, you can unveil your beautiful new skin.
Microneedling involves using a pen-like tool containing numerous fine needles that is run over the skin and creates microscopic channels or wounds. The skin responds to these controlled wounds by producing more collagen and elastin. These are essential to building strong, healthy skin tissues.
Some conditions micro-needling has been used for include:
- Skin laxity
- Aging and wrinkles
- Enlarged pores
- Pigment issues
Getting this treatment in the winter is ideal so you have plenty of time to heal and let your skin produce collagen and become stronger while avoiding sun exposure.
