Seasonal Changes: The Best Med Spa Treatments for Every Season
Did you know your skin’s cellular turnover is approximately every 28 days?
Seasonal changes leave distinct marks on our skin and bodies. That’s why planning your med spa trips according to certain times of the year is a valuable practice to maximize the results and convenience of your treatments.
So, how do you know which services you should focus on during certain seasons? Here’s the lowdown on our recommendations.
The cooler months are perfect for recovering from sun damage and improving skin texture. And because we spend more time indoors and are protected from the sun, it’s the ideal time for treatments that need a couple of weeks of downtime.
Give your body time to heal naturally when you undergo skin resurfacing treatments that remove the outer layer of dead skin cells. It only takes one treatment to penetrate deep into the layers of the skin and treat photodamage, deep fine lines, acne scars, and stretch marks.
Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) Therapy
Winter is a perfect time to get IPL therapy. This non-invasive, non-ablative treatment delivers high-intensity light into the deeper layers of the skin improving fine lines and wrinkles, vascular lesions, redness, broken capillaries, and sun spots.
Laser Hair Reduction (LHR)
LHR is an excellent option for those looking to reduce body hair anywhere. It would be best to avoid waxing or shaving (and the sun) when going for this treatment. Plus, the more efficiently the laser can identify the melanin within your hairs, the more effective your treatment will be.
Showing more skin and wearing less makeup – bikini season means it’s time for new beginnings and getting beach body ready! Focus on treatments ensuring your skin looks its best and doesn’t require weeks of indoor hibernation.
Body contouring and skin tightening are ideal preparations for that perfect summer body. The sun’s ultraviolet (UV) light is responsible for damaging elastin, which can cause wrinkling and sagging of the skin at low levels. You have zero downtime with these treatments, so you don’t have to miss out on wearing your favorite spring dress.
Spring is ideal for dermal fillers, Botox and Dysport, since sunburned skin is difficult to treat. But unlike many other services, you won’t be stuck inside for days after these treatments, allowing you to enjoy the great outdoors!
Facials liquefy the buildup that accumulates on the skin and inside pores from the long, hot, and humid days. We suggest a deep-cleansing facial and good exfoliation to remove all the dry skin. Follow it up with a deeply hydrating facial to lock in moisture.
Micropeels are great maintenance peels that involve the application of a chemical to your face and then removing the dead skin cells during a dermaplane procedure. It improves the appearance of sun damage and other skin-related concerns and conditions.
