In this guide from Borealis Dermatology in New York, we go over the best cosmetic treatments to get during the wintertime.
What Are The Best Cosmetic Treatments To Get During The Wintertime?
- Chemical Peel
- Laser Genesis
What Is A Chemical Peel?
As we age, the skin begins to lose its luster and no longer appears as vibrant as it once did. This is because, over time, the skin’s natural shedding of dead cells decreases, resulting in an uneven and dull outer layer of skin. To restore a more youthful and glowing complexion, chemical peel treatments can be used to eliminate the outer layer of skin and unveil the healthier skin beneath.
Chemical peels can help improve the look of skin, as well as treat issues like hyperpigmentation, wrinkles, sun damage, acne scars and age spots. Chemical peels are a treatment done in-office, which involves applying a safe but effective exfoliating acid solution to the face. This can cause some mild tingling for a few minutes, after which the solution is removed. You may notice some of your skin ‘flaking off’ for a few days after the procedure, but this is a sign that the newer, healthier skin beneath the surface is being revealed. Your provider may recommend wearing UV protection and staying out of the sun as part of your after-treatment care process, so the wintertime can be the perfect season to rest after a chemical peel.
What Is Laser Genesis?
If you are looking for a way to improve your skin’s appearance, consider Laser Genesis. At Borealis Dermatology, we offer the revolutionary Laser Genesis, with the Cutera Excel V+ Laser, treatment as a safe and effective cosmetic treatment solution. Laser Genesis utilizes lasers to reduce the appearance of acne, acne scarring, dark spots, rosacea wrinkles, and fine lines. It also works to improve the look of scars and keloids, as well as broken blood vessels.
By heating the skin with a non-ablative laser, Laser Genesis works to kill the bacteria on the surface and deeper in the skin, and stimulate collagen production to heal the skin. With this innovative treatment, you can achieve a beautiful and youthful complexion. Some side effects of Laser Genesis can include swelling and redness, so it’s best for bundling up during the wintertime.
What Is Microdermabrasian?
Aging can lead to the gradual decrease of collagen in the skin. Collagen is responsible for creating the youthful look of tight, smooth, and full skin. Microdermabrasion treatments help to produce new collagen, making skin look smoother and younger with each treatment.
Microdermabrasion is a professional skin-exfoliation procedure done in-office. It is used to improve the skin’s tone and texture, as well as stimulate the growth of new cells and collagen. The treatment is often used to reduce the appearance of common skin issues like acne scarring, wrinkles, fine lines, stretch marks and sun damage. Additionally, it can help brighten a dull complexion and give it a more youthful radiance.
During each session, a diamond-tipped wand is used to gently ‘sand’ the skin, resulting in a mild vibration and scratching sensation. The procedure is relatively quick and comfortable and typically takes about half an hour. Microdermabrasion can successfully treat a wide range of skin conditions, such as fine lines/wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, enlarged pores and blackheads, acne, acne scars, stretch marks, uneven skin tone/texture, melasma and sun damage. Microdermabrasion requires no downtime, but can result in some redness and swelling, which makes the days spent staying in during the winter most opportune.
