The holidays are around the corner. And while the happiest time of the year can be full of special memories, the season also comes with its share of stress. This year, stay ahead of the tension by treating yourself to some cosmetic dermatology treatments. These services can help you unwind and look your best for the upcoming holiday season.
Perhaps the most relaxing cosmetic treatment, the HydraFacial MD® is a three-in-one service that cleanses, exfoliates, and extracts. This facial also delivers nourishing serums to give you a pre-holiday glow. You can relax at a dermatology and cosmetic center before leaving with bright and healthy skin. HydraFacials can clear congestion, smooth out wrinkles, and even out skin tone, so the treatment is safe for most skin types.
Chemical peel facial treatments can reduce the appearance of acne, shallow wrinkles, mild scarring, sun damage, and pigmentation irregularities by removing the outer layer of skin. By treating yourself to this treatment, you can enjoy smooth and radiant skin through the holiday season. During a chemical peel, a dermatologist will apply a peeling solution to your skin. They will then neutralize and remove the solution. You may notice some redness following treatment, and your skin may flake for up to two weeks.
Another popular exfoliating treatment, microdermabrasion is a great way to give your skin a boost before your holiday gatherings. Dermatologist microdermabrasion can be effective at reducing acne, fine lines and wrinkles, and pigmentation irregularities. During this treatment, the dermatologist will use a small tool to spray or rub fine crystals on the skin, removing dead skin cells. Microdermabrasion is gentle, so it’s typically suitable for most skin types.
Put your skin health first this season, and consider scheduling a laser therapy treatment. Your dermatologist may recommend laser therapy for acne, wrinkles, pigmentation irregularities, and broken blood vessels. This treatment resurfaces the skin and boosts collagen production. There are several types of laser treatments, so your dermatologist will recommend the best service for your needs. They will also talk to you about any side effects you may experience.
If you have a skin condition like atopic dermatitis, eczema, psoriasis, and vitiligo, light therapy may provide relief. During this treatment, a dermatologist will apply a medication to your skin. You will then sit under a blue light while the treatment targets the problem area. This non-invasive treatment isn’t painful, so you can relax while your skin receives some major benefits. Keep in mind that laser and lighter therapies typically require several sessions to deliver results, so talk to your dermatologist about what to expect.
