With shorter and much colder days, copious layers of clothing and dreaming of a summer vacay over a hot coffee, it is no wonder some of us relax our beauty routine over the winter months. But did you know winter is the perfect time to jump-start your spring and summer skin? Here are some of our most popular treatments during this time.
Laser for Pigmentation
The most important thing to remember with this treatment is that pigments are made in summer and removed in winter. Our laser pigmentation treatments safely and effectively reduce the appearance of sun-spots, freckles and age spots. The laser treats these conditions by targeting and fragmenting the selected imperfection without causing damage to the surrounding skin tissue. Although you will start seeing results after your first treatment, we recommend 4 to ensure best results.
Laser Hair Removal
Winter is also the best time to start tackling unwanted hair! First timers will need a minimum of 6 sessions to get great results and this can take several months. Best results are achieved when you have minimum UV exposure on the treated areas before and after your treatment, which means rugging up has never been more appealing or necessary!
Did we mention? By the time your course of laser hair removal is over, you will be ready to show off your smooth skin as the weather starts to warm up.
LED Light Therapy
Between the crisp cold air outside and warm and stuffy heaters inside, your skin doesn’t catch a break during the colder months. The temperature change can exacerbate skin concerns such as redness, acne, and dryness. Our LED Light Therapy works at repairing damaged cells and increasing collagen production in the skin, leaving you with a healthy glow.
Our Full-Face Micro-needling treatment can help reduce scarring, stretch marks, blackheads, open pores, fine lines and hyperpigmentation leaving you with smooth and hydrated skin. As you need to avoid waxing, fake tans and sun exposure two weeks before the treatment to ensure optimal results, it is a winter-skin must-have.
Of course, any treatments should be complemented with some day-to-day products to keep your skin glowing between treatments. Cleansing morning and night will help remove make-up and dead skin cells to keep your skin clean, while a hydrating moisturiser will help prevent redness, flakiness, and irritated skin. Finish off your routine with a thicker moisturiser that will prevent any dry or tight feeling in the face. We recommend the Hydrating Gentle Cleanser and the Dry Skin Moisteruiser from Balense skincare. And rain, hail or shine, you should always apply an SPF. Wearing sunscreen in the winter is a crucial part of maintaining your skin health and happiness. Our favourite is the Ultra-Protection Sunscreen with SPF 50 from Aesthetics RX.
