For the last few months, we have focused on properly caring for summer skin, such as choosing the right types of sunscreens, what treatments to avoid, and how to maintain your results while enjoying your summer vacation. However, as we’ve now transitioned into the harsh winter season, it’s time to find the best treatments to help target skin conditions that often flare up during the cold winter.
Wintertime is when we tend to hunker down indoors, as opposed to the summer months when we enjoy spending time outside in the sun. Therefore, winter is a great time to get treatments that may require longer recovery times or treatments that make your skin more sensitive to UV rays from the sun since you won’t be spending as much time in it. It also presents an opportunity to help repair damage caused by the summer months in the sun.
Here are a few of our favorite winter treatments at M Spa Face and Body in Webster, TX.
LightPod Neo AeroLase Laser Treatment
Laser treatments can be done any time of the year, but they work best when the skin is untanned because it reduces the risk of pigmentation. Minimal sun exposure is also important for proper healing. Our LightPod Neo system offers cutting-edge technology that can treat signs of aging, rosacea, and acne safely and effectively. Due to its impressive 650-microsecond laser technology, the LightPod Neo delivers precise and controlled healing towards various skin blemishes, wrinkles, fine lines, sunspots, and lackluster skin for a more radiant appearance. It also offers a pain-free experience and fast recovery times.
Our incredible Melanage peel and VI Peels can help with skin tone, brightening, hydrating, and treating troubled skin; but again, limited sun exposure is essential to the healing process. In addition, peels can make your skin more susceptible to sunburns if not adequately protected.
The Melanage Peel treats stubborn melasma and can help create clear skin with a healthy, youthful glow. This peel involves the application of a white mask that is applied in the office and left on for several hours. The skin lightening system contains prescription strength acid and retinoids that target pigmentation and textural problems in the skin by expediting cellular turnover. Then, you’ll be sent home with an at-home regimen involving mask removal and care of your freshly treated skin.
Our VI Peels use medical-grade chemical peels that can treat many skin concerns, including fine lines, hyperpigmentation, rough and dry textures, acne and acne scars, and rosacea, and improve the overall health of the skin. In addition, our peels safely exfoliate the top damaged layer of skin and promote cellular turnover to rejuvenate the skin’s surface layer.
Let’s step away from the skin and focus on the body. What better time to get summer ready than during the winter when you’re covered up? At M Spa Face and Body, we offer our patients the ability to target stubborn unwanted fat in the abdomen, upper arms, thighs, and other areas with CoolSculpting. This non-invasive, non-surgical treatment uses cryotherapy technology to freeze and destroy fat cells in the body. It takes time for the body to break down and eliminate the fat cells, making it a perfect winter-time treatment.
