Maintaining a healthy, glowing complexion is a year-round responsibility, but some seasons make it more difficult than others. If you have noticed dry, cracked skin over the past couple months, you are not alone. The cold winter months can take a toll on our skin and sometimes even our favorite skin care products can only do so much to help. That’s why the cosmetic experts here at MadEmEl Medical Aesthetics wanted to answer a few questions about some of our award-winning cosmetic treatments that can help this winter.
Question #1: Is there anything I can do to make my skin care products more effective this winter?
For those people that have a current skin care regimen that they don’t want to alter during the winter, undergoing a SkinPen® Microneedling treatment can help. During the treatment, our aestheticians use a handheld tool to create tiny punctures known as “micro-channels” in the skin. These micro-channels allow skin care products like moisturizers and cleansers to penetrate more deeply and provide even more effective results. Some patients may also benefit from our signature Amnio Growth Factor Microneedling treatment.
Question #2: Are there any treatments that can address seasonal facial redness?
We offer a wide variety of cosmetic laser treatments, as well as Intense pulsed light (IPL) treatments and specialized skin care products, that can effectively help treat the leading causes of facial redness. This includes acne scarring, rosacea, spider veins, vascular birthmarks, superficial blood vessels, and more. A pre-treatment consultation appointment will allow our experts to determine the most beneficial laser treatment for each patient’s needs.
Question #3: Is it too early to consider laser hair removal ahead of the coming spring and summer?
Absolutely not. In fact, we often recommend for patients to begin their laser hair removal treatments during the winter. Since multiple laser hair removal treatment sessions will likely be required to earn the final results that many patients desire, starting now during the winter may actually be the best way to achieve full hair removal from the respective treatment area(s) in time for next beach and pool season.
The winter can obviously be a harsh time on skin, but that’s why our skin care experts specialize in helping our patients look and feel their best all year long.
