Wintertime is the perfect time to repair your skin! Here is why:
Living in Colorado, we enjoy activities in the great outdoors exposing our skin to those powerful high altitude UV rays. As a result of basking in the Summer sun, we create unwanted sun damage; such as pre-mature aging, sun spots, broken capillaries, fine lines and even deep wrinkles.
Laser skin resurfacing, IPL photo facials and light chemical peels are great treatments to repair the damage from too much fun in the sun. However, if you are well-tanned or sun burned as in the summer months, these treatments may not be as effective. Laser and light-based treatments use heat and light energy to target unwanted lesions and stimulate collagen production, so if your skin is carrying too much color (tan), the device may not be able to decipher between the color in your skin and the conditions being treated.
After any laser treatment or chemical peel, it is advised to avoid excess UV exposure while your skin is recovering, for best results. In the Winter months, it is much easier to avoid the sun before and after any procedure. We tend to spend more time covered in coats, scarves and gloves and less time soaking up the sun, allowing you to get the best results from your treatments.
If you are considering treatments to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, remove broken capillaries, address rosacea, eliminate discolorations and improve tone and texture, the Winter months are the perfect time to schedule your treatments!
We also recommend enhancing Winter skin with your favorite SkinCeuticals moisture and antiaging skincare products to combat dryness, enhance treatment results and get your skin looking its best before Spring and Summer!
