How to Care for Your Skin this Winter

Winter is an excellent time to rejuvenate your skin. Many skin therapies such as laser skin treatments increase the skin’s sensitivity to sunlight. The reduced sun exposure during the winter aids recovery, making it the perfect time for noninvasive skin therapies. 

Board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Joseph Mark and our exceptional team of aesthetic specialists at The Spa MD in Rochester Hills, Michigan, want you to look and feel your best this summer, and that starts with great skin. 

The hot Midwest summers and chilly winters can take a toll on your skin, causing it to appear dull, tired, and lifeless. Making skin treatments a regular part of your skin care regimen is an excellent way to keep your skin looking healthy and youthful, and winter is the best time to start. For glowing, radiant skin this summer, here are some of the best ways to refresh your skin this winter. 

Facial peels

During colder months, a facial peel is one of the best ways to perk up the skin. This cosmetic chemical treatment peels away the damaged top layers of skin to reveal fresh, smooth, radiant skin. A good option for reducing the appearance of blemishes, age spots, and dark spots, a chemical peel can breathe new life into dull, damaged skin. 

Winter is a perfect time for chemical peels. This treatment exposes deeper layers of skin, making it more sensitive to the sun’s powerful ultraviolet rays. Getting a chemical peel during colder months means more protection for your skin as it heals and recovers. 

Laser skin treatments

The summertime poses a risk of unwanted inflammatory skin reactions such as hyperpigmentation after laser skin treatment. Fall and winter provide the best opportunity to take advantage of these treatments to restore your skin’s beauty. 

At The Spa MD we offer the latest laser skin treatments to brighten, smoothen, and tighten your skin, effectively reducing skin damage and the signs of aging. Laser treatments such as ClearLift quickly resurfaces the skin painlessly and with zero downtime, leaving you with noticeably glowing, dewy skin. 

For those looking for more dramatic results, our CO2 laser resurfacing treatment is a top-notch option for addressing deep wrinkles, uneven skin tone, and prominent blemishes. CO2 laser resurfacing is the best option for those wanting the most visible results with just one treatment.

Intense pulse light therapy (IPL), also known as a photofacial, naturally boosts collagen and regenerates the skin using intense wavelengths of light. Dark patches, brown spots, and freckles are just a few of the skin issues IPL therapy addresses. Effective for various skin types, IPL can improve lackluster skin so that it appears fresh and rejuvenated. 

Radiant skin is within reach
