The winter often means dry, cracked skin so now is the perfect time for a facial treatment! It’s also the best time to improve skin damaged by the summer sun so that you can rejuvenate and refresh your appearance for the next summer. Here are a few of the best facial services to receive in the winter:
Chemical peels use a chemical solution to remove dead skin cells and stimulate the production of new collagen and healthy skin cells. As collagen and new skin is resurfaced, you will see smoother skin with a brighter, evenly toned complexion. Chemical peels come in different strengths (light, medium, or deep) so that they can be customized for each patient’s skin type and skin concerns.
Winter is the perfect time to get a chemical peel because your new, healing skin will be sensitive to sun exposure. Since UV exposure is significantly decreased in the winter, you won’t have to worry about damaging your healing skin. Chemical peels often cause the skin to shed for several days and you can easily avoid being seen during this time while you are relaxing at home.
Microdermabrasion gently removes the surface layer of the skin with an exfoliating diamond-tipped wand. Exfoliation also stimulates cell turnover and the production of collagen and elastin to smooth your complexion and resurface the outer layers. Winter is a great time to receive microdermabrasion because you improve the quality of sun-damaged skin. You will also be able to easily avoid the sun after your treatment since your healing skin will be sensitive to UV exposure.
Microneedling is also called collagen induction therapy because it uses tiny needles to puncture the skin, triggering the body’s healing response and the production of new collagen. Microneedling will plump the skin, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the appearance of pigmentation spots and other surface blemishes. Microneedling in the winter is a great way to improve sun-damaged skin and rejuvenate your appearance.
Lasers can be used for just about anything: skin tightening, laser hair removal, or skin resurfacing to improve acne scarring, hyperpigmentation, and more! Different lasers penetrate the skin at varying depths, but it is often recommended that you avoid sun exposure after a laser treatment. UV rays could cause the skin to permanently darken or make your healing skin more sensitive. Since it is so important to avoid UV rays, winter is the perfect time for a laser treatment.
Professional facial treatments use medical-grade products with high-quality ingredients that create quick and long-lasting results. Our skincare professionals also have the training and experience necessary to safely deliver chemical products to the skin and use medical equipment like the microneedling device. If these professional tools are used incorrectly, you can cause more skin damage, so we strongly recommend visiting a med spa like Envee Aesthetics for your skincare needs.
