With winter here and the holiday season rapidly approaching, cosmetic rejuvenation may not be the first thing on your mind at the moment. But maybe it should be. While it may seem counterintuitive to some, the winter season actually provides several unique benefits for patients seeking cosmetic treatments. In order to help our readers make the most of their opportunity before the calendar turns to next year, the aesthetic professionals here at MadEmEl Medical Aesthetics wanted to suggest a few of our more in-demand cosmetic treatments this winter season.
Laser Hair Removal
In many cases, achieving the best possible results from laser hair removal is not an overnight process. However, starting a treatment regimen during the winter can be an excellent way to get ahead of next year’s beach and pool season. We typically recommend a series 4-6 treatments (spaced roughly 4 weeks apart) in order to achieve full hair removal from the targeted treatment area.
Because the skin needs time away from sun exposure to properly heal after a chemical peel, the cooler winter months are often an ideal time for this cosmetic treatment. Depending on the type and strength of the peel performed, chemical peels can help address a wide variety of facial imperfections including uneven skin tone, sun damage, wrinkles, and fine lines, and more.
Spider Vein Removal
Here at MadEmEl, we use Splendor X laser technology from Lumenis® to help patients reduce the appearance of veins on their legs. Wearing pants during the winter can help conceal compression garments required after your vein removal treatment following treatment.
After months of fun in the sun, it’s natural to develop some degree of facial redness, “sun spots” or pigmented areas of the skin. Undergoing IPL treatments during the winter season can be incredibly helpful in addressing these concerns. Additionally, the winter provides an opportunity to stay out of direct sunlight while healing, which is critical to promoting the best and longest-lasting IPL results.
There is no such thing as a bad time to improve your look with the help of our cosmetic experts, but the winter season certainly provides a number of advantages for our patients.
