“Winter is coming.” A phrase made famous by one Ned Stark on Game of Thrones is, funnily enough, a phrase all women can relate to. The difference? We feel it on our skin. From dry patches to redness to that overall tight feeling, winter weather wreaks havoc. Luckily, it doesn’t have to. Let’s talk about winter skin restoration through laser and light treatments.
The reason laser and light treatments are so effective is that they have the ability to rejuvenate the skin with little to no downtime or pain. Not only that, but many help with cell reproduction and increase collagen production giving skin that beautiful even tone. Here are a few of our favorite treatments, all of which you can get at The Look this winter.
Your Winter Skincare Survival Guide
While SkinTyte is a treatment that can be done year-round, a winter refresh is always a great idea. As we age, we lose elasticity in our skin. You know that moment when you’re looking in the mirror and push up on the skin on your face, and then instead of snapping back it just sort of slowly slinks back? That’s what we’re talking about. SkinTyte is a non-invasive procedure done over an 8 week period, with full results in 6 months. You’ll be ready for summer! SkinTyte helps with sagging, elasticity and wrinkles. The best part, it can be done on the face, neck and body!
After a summer full of sun, or for most of us, many summers full of sun, the skin damage is real. The build up of sun damage can cause dullness, sun spots, freckles and pesky lines and wrinkles. Luckily, there are options to reverse that damage. One of those is MOXI. This treatment resurfaces the skin, leaving you with better texture and years of sun damage being pulled out of your skin. You’ll look younger and more refreshed with minimal downtime.
BBL (Broad Band Light)
This light treatment is the creme de la creme for winter skin. Since it requires you to stay out of the sun, we absolutely recommend this to be your winter go-to. The BBL Forever Young photofacial can reverse the signs of aging, leaving skin softer and smoother. This is the most powerful light-based technology available and it will leave you feeling and looking radiant.
Choosing to do regular BBL Forever treatments has changed the expression of the genes associated with aging which leads to longevity of treatment. This means your results will LAST. It helps with broken capillaries and age spots as well, leading to an overall appearance change. We love this treatment because it has minimal downtime. You’ll have a series of treatments (we recommend starting with three over three months) and after that, two treatments a year will help you keep your results.
It does take time to really address the accumulated damage to the layers of pigment. This is completely normal. That time means it’s really working and attacking the years of sun and environmental damage that happens to our skin through day to day life. Results from BBL take one to two weeks, with full results taking place about four weeks after your final series treatment. You may notice a bit of “micro-crusting” of any age spots or freckles as well as a bit of redness after treatment, but that can be easily covered with makeup.
All of these procedures are done using the mJOULE by Sciton. This machine provides the latest advancements in skin care while making it affordable and requiring little recovery time. With powerful results for anti-aging, this machine allows us to provide single targeted treatments to the face, neck and body that reverse the signs of aging that naturally occur. This gives us the opportunity to do what we love, which is to see you feeling confident knowing that you have the skin you’ve always wanted.
These three treatments combined with a daily skincare routine, will be a life-saver for your skin this winter season. We recommend coming in for a consultation with one of our team members to find out which of our non-invasive, minimal downtime procedures may be right for you. And as always, never hesitate to reach out with any questions.
Winter may be coming, but your skin can be ready, healthy and glowing this holiday season with a visit to The Look.
