Best Facials for the Wintertime

It’s winter, it’s gray, and it’s gloomy. Regardless of how your skin feels, these two characteristics may be enough to make you call your favorite dermatologist for an appointment. It’s important to remember that the skin is dryer and more irritated in the winter. Because of their ability to hydrate, protect, and gently renew skin, some treatments should be scheduled for the snowy season. These are some of the best facials to consider this season.

Good Facial Treatments for Winter


Dermaplaning, also known as dermablading, is a procedure that involves skillfully scraping away dead skin cells with a thin, rounded medical blade similar to a scalpel. It also removes peach fuzz or facial hair, leaving your skin silky smooth.

Dermaplaning is available as a standalone service, or you can have it as an add-on to other treatments such as chemical peels. To ensure a clean canvas for the scalpel to operate across, your dermatologist will first cleanse your skin. Your skin will be divided into quadrants and pulled taut as the skin is scraped with the rounded blade along your hairline in small strokes. Several layers of dead skin cells and peach fuzz will be eliminated with each row. After dermaplaning your entire face, your dermatologist will apply a mask, serums, and hydrators to enhance the advantages for your skin. The greatest thing about dermaplaning is it’s not only painless but also effective. You may be able to see the results in just a few days.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peel treatment includes applying a particular chemical solution to your skin in order to exfoliate away the dull, dead skin cells that make you look older than you are. After the old skin is gone, the healthy new skin beneath it can shine through, flawless and glowing. Sun spots, acne scars, fine lines, age spots, and surface wrinkles are all treated with this procedure.

The treatment can also help to enhance the texture and tone of your skin, giving you a more youthful appearance.

Laser Therapy

Laser treatments are more effective on pale skin. Lasers are limited in their capacity to act on tanned skin, whether caused by the sun’s natural rays or the artificial light of a tanning bed, because they are designed to focus on precise regions of hyperpigmentation and sun damage on skin. Your skin has had time to heal from any summer sun exposure now that we are well into winter, which makes it perfect for wintertime.

Birthmarks, rosacea, dark spots, spider veins, tattoos, and undesirable hair can all be removed or minimized with the use of laser treatments.

Remember to use sunscreen even if the sun isn’t shining. Clouds do not block UV radiation. If the clouds are reflective, they might be much more powerful. Even in the cold, keep using moisturizer and sunscreen, and your skin and your future self will thank you!
