We wear more and more layers of clothes as the weather gets cooler. Just as we protect ourselves against the cold during winters, we should also use the same approach for our skin too during this season. The environment affects our skin during different seasons so getting extra protection for our skin from a professional treatment would be a great boost for us.
The skin says a lot about an individual and keeping it in top-notch condition is a definite yes. Here are 5 recommended facial treatments for fall and winters;
This is a procedure that physically removes the upper layers of the skin while at the same time smooths the skin texture by improving the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. It helps in collagen and elastin production and evens the skin tone. It is usually customized to the individual’s skin needs and revitalizing the summer damaged skin is exactly what is needed in the fall and winters.
Microdermabrasion can either be performed on its own or added to a facial. Depending on this it can take about 30 to 60 minutes. There is no downtime in this procedure but using potent skincare treatments after the session may cause you burning or stinging sensations.
2. Chemical peel
A chemical peel involves applying a chemical solution to the skin which gets rid of dead skin cells. This in turn stimulates collagen and elastin production which makes the skin smoother and brighter. Various skin issues can be addressed depending on which type of chemical peel you are getting, either superficial, medium, or deep peel. It helps in smoothing fine lines and wrinkles, removing hyperpigmentation and improving the skin texture and tone.
It is especially great during the fall and winter seasons because there isn’t much UV exposure during the healing process. The procedure takes about 45 to 60 minutes and the downtime depends on the strength of the peel.
Microneedling involves puncturing the skin with a derma roller or needles which causes the skin to start the repair process and increase collagen production. It improves the skin texture and tone and reverses the signs of aging.
It is great during this time of the year because it cannot be performed on a sun-sensitive skin. The procedure takes about 30 to 60 minutes and the downtime varies depending on the depth of the micro-needle being used.
4. Laser Treatments
Laser treatments involve the use of concentrated pulsating beams of light to treat the skin. The treatment is usually used for getting rid of age spots, pigmentation, scarring, acne, and unwanted hair.
It is beneficial to get during winters because the downtime can be lengthy and you are advised to completely stay out of UV rays. The procedure takes about an hour and the downtime depends on the strength of the laser treatment that you’ve had.
5. Intense Pulsed Light ( IPL)
This treatment improves the appearance of sun-damaged skin and also kills any pre-cancerous cells. It usually treats background redness such as rosacea, blood vessels, sun damage, acne, and can also be used for hair removal. Getting it during winters is better because sun avoidance is crucial during the healing process.
