Laser Hair Removal
If you’re planning on showing off a hair-free, care-free look during the warmer months, winter is the best time for laser hair removal. That’s because the full results from laser hair removal takes a few months to materialize.
Why you say? Laser hair removal works by targeting hair follicles. The laser damages the follicle, causing it to fall out. However, the treatment process needs to be repeated a few times on new hair follicles before re-growth slows or stops. That’s why it’s recommended that clients go through a few rounds of laser hair removal treatments (spaced 4 weeks apart) before expecting smooth, hair-free skin. It’s time to throw away your razors for good.
When the temperatures drop and there’s less moisture in the air, your skin tends to be drier. Chemical Peels are designed to remove dry and damaged skin from your face and unearth a younger, smoother, more hydrated version of your skin.
Right after you undergo a chemical peel, your skin will be temporarily more sensitive to sunlight. That is why the best time to get a chemical peel is in the fall and winter months when the weather is cooler, days are shorter, and the sun is not so glaring and incessant. And doing a chemical peel in the winter prepares your skin for the warmer months so that your recovery process is complete by the time you are ready to go out gardening or hit the beach.
Photofacial and Skin Rejuvenation
As your body’s largest and most visible organ, your skin is a prominent reflection of your youth and well-being. But it’s prone to developing surface irregularities that can leave you feeling older than you are or less confident in your appearance.
Winter is ideal for our IPL Photofacial and Skin Rejuvenation laser treatments, where we have less sun exposure on our skin. We can achieve a clearer skin tone and more even complexion during winter, giving your skin time to turnover and heal.
IPL Photofacial - IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) works to correct pigmentation and reduce redness.
Therefore we can use it to even out someone’s skin tone on many areas of the body (face, hands, arms, décolleté). Sun spots can be lightened and flushed cheeks can be reduced. The overall effect is a clearer, healthier complexion.
ResurFX - The Lumenis® ResurFX™ treatment enables us to offer you remarkably healthier, radiant and more youthful skin. ResurFX is optimally tailored to address even the early signs of aging with noticeable results for fine lines, skin texture and overall skin appearance.
Although you can expect to see an undeniable difference in your skin soon after treatment, the collagen and elastin remodeling process unfold steadily and gradually over time. As your body continues to ramp up its collagen and elastin production, you’ll notice increasingly smoother, firmer, and more vibrant-looking skin for months to come.
During the wintertime, you’re far less likely to unintentionally spend too much time in the sun. Why does this matter? Because laser skin resurfacing can’t be performed on skin that’s tanned, or darker than normal.
