5 Tips to Rejuvenate Winter Skin

Winter is a tough season for the skin, with colder temperatures and dry air creating all kinds of wear and tear on your complexion. Now is the time to rejuvenate tired winter skin before spring officially rolls around. At Dermacare Laser & Skin Care Clinics, we feature an array of cosmetic treatments that will help you get your glow on just in time for the changing of the seasons.

Microdermabrasion
Exfoliating treatments that remove outer skin cells and stimulate cell renewal can be an effective way to revive dull winter skin. This non-invasive procedure utilizes a special tool to remove the outer layer of skin, revealing softer, more radiant skin underneath. The procedure is painless and does not involve any downtime afterward.

Microdermabrasion is usually recommended in a series of treatment sessions to produce full results. However, each treatment will increase your glowing vitality to see you through spring and well into summer in style. Microdermabrasion can be combined with a hydrating multi-vitamin mask to replenish vital nutrients in the skin to keep it looking and feeling its best.

Chemical Peels
Chemical peels are another treatment that offer effective exfoliation by removing outer layers of skin to let the smoother, softer skin underneath shine through. However, these treatments can also be customized to address a host of specific concerns, including acne, signs of aging and brown spots. In addition, chemical peels can be used to even out irregular skin texture and tone, often caused by the harsh winter climate, and brighten your skin tone overall.

Laser Genesis
Winter skin can mean irritated skin, which leads to redness of the complexion and other problems. Laser Genesis is a gentle laser treatment that can effectively reduce skin redness along with fine lines and enlarged pores. This treatment delivers laser energy beneath the skin’s surface to promote health and vitality from the inside out.

Laser Genesis treatments do not require any type of anesthesia. The procedure is relatively quick and painless and patients are able to return to their daily activities as soon as treatment is over. Results are generally subtle and improve over the course of four or five treatment sessions.

Blue Light Therapy
While some people see an improvement in their acne during the winter, others find winter breakouts to be both embarrassing and painful. The winter climate can dry out skin so products that worked well on your skin during the summer are now too harsh for your complexion. The result is skin irritation, inflammation and redness that is as uncomfortable as it is unsightly. Blue light therapy is a professional cosmetic treatment specifically designed to reduce acne breakouts by killing the bacteria responsible for those breakouts.
