When you look in the mirror in the middle of winter, you may not be delighted to see that the harsh cold air has begun to take a toll on your face. However, what you may not realize is that there are many different treatments that you can choose between in order to get your winter skin ready for the upcoming spring months. Not only should you get to know some of these treatment options, you will also want to schedule your appointments now to get your skin ready to go as soon as the weather turns warm again.
Laser Skin Care
Laser treatments for your skin are an excellent way to renew and rejuvenate your skin after the harsh winter months. When you choose laser skin care treatments, you will go to your dermatologist's office for the brief, yet effective treatment.
Your cosmetic dermatologist will use the laser, which is made up high-intensity light energy, to target the damaged or dead skin cells and blemishes on the surface of your skin. The laser is designed to break apart the molecular bonds of these cells to effectively destroy them and remove those cells from your face.
The end results of laser skin care treatments are smoother, younger looking skin that is ready for spring and summer weather. Your friends and family will likely wonder how your skin is glowing despite the cold, dry weather.
Another excellent skin rejuvenation treatment that you can try when you are getting ready for spring weather is microneedling. Microneedles are tiny little needles that penetrate a fraction of a millimeter into the skin.
When you get microneedling treatments, the first step is to have your dermatologist apply a local anesthetic numbing cream to your face. This will ensure that you experience no pain during the procedure. Next, they will apply a hyaluronic acid serum that will help to get your skin to begin the rejuvenation process quickly following the treatment.
During the microneedling procedure, your dermatologist will use a machine or device that has several needles which pulsate rapidly as it is moved over your skin. After the treatment, your skin will likely be pinkish and slightly inflamed which means the treatment is working. Your skin will soon begin to produce collagen to heal from the microneedling process which makes your skin fuller, plumper, and younger-looking.
Now that you know a few of the treatments that you can try when you are getting your winter skin ready for spring, you can get your dermatologist appointments scheduled as soon as possible.
