What To Do About Dull, Dry, Winter Skin

Winter weather is hard on our skin. The hot dry air indoors and icy outdoor air can rapidly dry out our skin, making it look as dull and dreary as the winter days themselves. Many women don’t realize that winter is the time to take extra care of their skin, keeping it hydrated and toned so that when bright weather comes again, their skin is as radiant and glowing as if the summer sun never left at all.

But what sort of winter treatments can combat dull, dry, winter skin? Bellevue plastic surgery has several very affordable, easy ways to keep your face healthy and vibrant.

Facials and Skin Treatments:

We have many options for medi-spa treatments that are one of the first and most popular choices among our young clients, as well as deeper and more rejuvenating treatments for mature ladies. But not just ladies – we offer special skin treatments for men as well. These treatments are relaxing, rejuvenating, and very rewarding for your skin! Here’s a peek at some of our favorites:

Chemical Peel

Chemical peels have been a favorite way for Dr. McIntosh’s patients to rejuvenate their skin that takes facial treatments a step further than skin toning facials. A chemical peel is able to remove fine lines and greatly diminish wrinkles, taking years off your face. It can also help those struggling with pigment irregularities and acne scarring.

Chemical peels use a practice called chemoexfoliation to remove the dead, unhealthy, or discolored surface of the skin. This allows new, young skin to begin growing. Within 6 weeks, our patients have bid farewell to winter skin and said hello to the bright, healthy skin of spring.

We have a variety of chemical peels available that will be tailored to your needs and preferences. Contact our office to schedule a consultation with Dr. McIntosh and discuss your options with this incredibly skin-rejuvenating procedure and other options like bellevue breast augmentation.

Dermaroller Treatment

Dermarolling is a type of dermabrasion that can help increase the collagen in your skin. This helps to soften your skin, diminishing irregularities and helping your face become more resilient to the effects of aging and gravity. This is one of our best ways to keep skin looking young and fresh, and one of the most popular with our mature clients.

Banish your winter depression by scheduling an appointment to make yourself more radiant and full of health and life. What better way to beat the winter blues than by looking like you just stepped out of summer?
