If you’re not a winter lover, cheer yourself up with this news: some beauty treatments work better in the colder months. What better way than to ride out the winter with beauty treatments that transform your appearance? Lack of sunlight can actually work in our favor when it comes to procedures such as laser facial peels, dermablating and body drainage.
The winter months are a good time to combat any pigmentation that may occur in spring, summer and autumn when the skin is actively producing melanin in response to ultraviolet radiation. During laser peeling, tanned skin may become irritated or burned – dark skin attracts more heat, which means that the laser acts on it more actively. Avoid doing the procedure 6 weeks after tanning. But if you haven’t been to the sea for a long time, it’s time to make an appointment with a doctor. On the other hand, some laser treatments can cause your skin to become sensitive to the sun, so if you go out in the sun after that, you may develop rashes or pigmentation problems. Seeking an experienced laser specialist with multiple instruments will ensure the best and safest treatment, no matter the season.
Two procedures are now popular – CoolSculpting (freezing fat cells) and Emsculpt (exposure to electricity for rapid muscle contraction). CoolSculpting – freezing unwanted fat pockets in order to empty fat cells from fat and attracted moisture. After the procedure, you will notice a slight swelling in the treated area – this is a normal body reaction. As you progress through the course of procedures, you will see how the body begins to actively burn fat. The best result, as doctors say, is visible after 3 months, however, by the New Year, you will have time to notice improvements. On the other hand, Emsculpt is a treatment that uses high-intensity focused electromagnetic (HIFEM) technology to induce 20,000 muscle contractions in 30 minutes. Basically, this means that the device can make your muscles contract, as if you were doing a physical exercise on a muscle group with 1000 repetitions. However, as with exercise, you won’t see results after the first try – it can take up to six months, so it’s worth starting your treatment now.
Any clinic procedures that promise to restore your complexion are best done during the winter. Skin peels, dermabelding, and other resurfacing techniques usually remove the top layers of the skin’s epidermis to help brighten and renew it. However, the top layer is responsible for protecting the deeper layers of the skin from UV damage thanks to the melanin stored in these cells. In the summer, constant exposure to ultraviolet light and high temperatures puts her at risk of damage after the procedure. But this will not happen in winter. Want to try dermablanding? This treatment speeds up the exfoliation of dead skin cells as well as replenishes it with moisture, making dermabelding the perfect choice for this time of year.
