WINTER is HERE:
TRANSFORM YOUR SKIN
‘Tis the season of holiday parties, family gatherings, overindulgence, cozy fireplaces, comfy blankets, and hot showers. As the urge to hibernate in a cozy sweater and tights sets in take advantage of the season and enlist a dermatologist to work on more radiant and healthier skin.
NO SUN, NO TROUBLE
A lower UV index is your best friend when scheduling some aesthetic treatments, Dr. Schweitzer explains that “treatments that targets pigmentation and small blood vessels are best performed in the winter because sun avoidance and protection is needed during the immediate healing process.” Intense Pulsed Light or IPL treatments are perfect to schedule during the winter months. IPL can improve brown spots, liver spots, red spots, and small surface blood vessels. This treatment is ideal for the face, neck, and décolletage. IPL can also treat sun damage on the arms, legs, and back of the hands. IPL has become a very popular treatment among men seeking to look more youthful. Medical chemical peels are another great cold weather treatment to improve fine lines, wrinkles, large pores, uneven skin texture, redness, and acne flare ups. Dr. Schweitzer explains that “medical grade chemical peels promote cell turnover by applying an acid solution to the skin in order to remove the damaged top layer of the skin. This process allows for healthier and smoother skin to show.” New generation peels give you a beautiful result without any down time. Great treatment for achieving a perfect holiday glow! Sclerotherapy or vein injection therapy is the most effective and commonly used treatment for spider and reticular veins on the thighs and legs. Sclerotherapy utilizes injection of a sclerosing agent into the veins. This agent irritates the inner lining of the veins causing the veins to shrink in diameter and become much less visible. With successful therapy, the treated vein fades over time and
normal activities are often allowed within a few days of treatment. Clear beautiful legs are created in the winter time!
ATTACK THE HOLIDAY BLUES
Looking your best and getting your holiday glow begins with some preventive care, starting as soon as possible. Changes in the weather, an increase in alcohol consumption, and emotional stress this time of the year can take a toll on your skin. Dr. Schwetizer cautions that your skin is at risk of getting the holiday blues “from a dry, dull complexion, dark circles under the eyes, breakouts, saggy skin, fine lines, and wrinkles.” Start increasing the moisture level in your skin as colder weather, stress, and the consumption of alcohol during the holidays can contribute to a dry, dull complexion and form dark circles under the eyes. Use a gentle face wash, a daily moisturizer with a SPF 30 or higher, include a vitamin C serum, and use a night cream formulated to restore essential cells and rebuild the skin’s matrix.
QUICK HOLIDAY PICK ME UPPERS
Dermal fillers are a quick way to get an almost instant improvement in facial wrinkles, skin folds, can add volume and fullness to the skin, and result in a more youthful appearance. “A full facial rejuvenation can be achieved simply by using the right amount of dermal filler in the areas of deficit of your face, achieving beautiful results” explains Dr. Schweitzer. Don’t forget your beautiful smile! A natural lip augmentation can give you a more youthful holiday smile and it is done in one single treatment. Dr. Schweitzer mentions that “Dysport™ injection therapy is one of the quickest, most popular treatments for giving you a more youthful look.” Dysport™ (pronounced DIS-port) is a form of botulinum toxin A. In most cases, it takes effect faster and lasts longer than other popular brands of muscle relaxers. From frown lines to crow's feet, it can lift your spirits and improve your wrinkles at the same time.
