As people across the country bundle up and show off less of their skin under coats, sweaters, and scarves, those interested in looking their best in every season turn to board-certified dermatologists like Dr. Jessica Krant to ensure they endure and make the most of the dry, cold months that switch up many people’s skin care routines.
With guidance from Dr. Krant, you can be sure to find a winter skin care procedure plan that works for you and your skin. Let’s discover what’s right for you!
One of the main benefits of having medical skin care treatments performed during the winter is the decreased risk of exposing sensitive treated areas to UV radiation. This is what makes having a chemical peel at this time of year so advantageous, because part of the recovery from this custom exfoliation and collagen creation treatment requires avoiding sun exposure. Enjoy the benefits of chemically removing dull, dead skin cells and revealing fresh skin just below the surface with reduced risk of developing side effects like sunburn or pigmentation due to sun exposure.
Light and Laser Treatments
Laser facial rejuvenation treatments are great to do in cooler, less sunny months. It is pretty well known that pigmentation issues are highly sensitive to sunlight after receiving treatment, which can result in reoccurrence. But what is less well known is that it’s safer to do these procedures when the skin is not tan and has as little excess pigment from the sun as possible. Procedures that help to improve skin tone and reduce pigmentation like melasma or sunspots also work well in cooler weather because it turns out that they can be triggered not only by ultraviolet radiation but also by heat. With cooler air around, it’s easier to avoid this issue. Dr. Krant may recommend the Fraxel Dual or Fraxel Restore laser, the Clear and Brilliant laser, IPL treatments, the Ruby Laser, or a combination of these for pigmentation and general rejuvenation that can freshen your look and trigger new collagen formation to turn the clock back.
Vascular Lesion Removal
Broken blood vessels, cherry angiomas, spider angiomas, facial veins, red spots on the face and body, and other vascular lesions can often be troubling. Dr. Krant has various lasers including the pulse dye laser or VBeam, KTP and Nd:YAG lasers in the Excel V, and other techniques such as hyfrecation at her disposal to pick the appropriate, safe, and effective treatment that can help remove these unsightly blemishes.
