If you’re wondering about the best cosmetic treatments for wintertime, read on for ways to pamper yourself and invest in your appearance.
What Are The Best Cosmetic Treatments For Wintertime?
Everyone wants to look their best for the holiday season, and there are many different cosmetic procedures to choose from, including both surgical and nonsurgical treatments. Here are the best wintertime recommendations from Anne Arundel ENT:
- Chemical Peels
- RF Microneedling
- Laser Hair Removal
- Laser Hair Treatment
- Facial Plastic Surgery
Why Should You Consider Chemical Peels?
Chemical peels are resurfacing treatments that utilize chemical solutions to remove the damaged outer layers of your skin. These treatments are mostly used on the face, but can also be used on the hands and neck for the same exfoliating effect. The acids used in chemical peels are skin-safe but will result in some sensitivity and peeling, similar to a mild sunburn. After treatment with a chemical peel, doctors recommend that you limit your sun exposure to avoid further irritation. This makes this cosmetic treatment ideal during the winter season when the days are shorter and it’s easier to stay out of the sun.
Why Is RF Microneedling Appropriate For The Wintertime?
RF microneedling is a cosmetic treatment that penetrates the skin and repairs it from the inside. Radiofrequency (RF) micro-needling is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that uses tiny needles and radiofrequency waves to rejuvenate the skin. RF micro-needling works by creating minor and controlled skin injuries to promote the growth of new skin and the production of structural proteins. Because of the nature of this cosmetic procedure, doctors also recommend using sun protection after the procedure, making the cold weather a more practical time to invest in this treatment.
How Can Laser Hair Removal Help You?
People are often self-conscious about their body hair. Laser hair removal treatments can help your skin look radiant and smooth during the holiday season and beyond. This cosmetic treatment uses highly concentrated light to damage hair follicles, preventing hair growth. You can expect no damage to the skin around the hair follicles during the treatment. Hair from the back, chest, legs, and arms can be targeted with laser hair removal. You should expect to see reduced hair growth 3 weeks after the laser treatment. Each treatment removes about 20% of hair in the area treated, so multiple treatments weeks apart may be necessary to get the desired results.
Why Is Laser Skin Resurfacing Ideal During The Wintertime?
Laser skin resurfacing is a nonsurgical cosmetic procedure reduces wrinkles, scars, and other facial blemishes using beams of light. Right after the treatment, you will notice that your skin is softer, brighter, and has a more even tone. Within the next 3-6 months, you will also notice more benefits as the underlying layers of skin produce more collagen. Clients can expect to return to work a week after the date of their treatment, but you can certainly use winter vacation days to rest and rejuvenate yourself.
