When we start the new year, we start fresh, and many of us adopt a new skin regimen or workout to achieve our beauty goals in the new year. Interestingly enough, though, your skin really needs you in the winter, so this is a great time to give it some special treatment. A micro laser peel is one of the most effective things you can do to refresh your overall look and help your skin during winter.
How do micro peels work?
Why is a micro laser peel so good for your skin? Let’s look at how laser peels work. Laser peels are performed at various levels of treatment to target specific needs. Light peels reduce the signs of sun damage and aging. Medium peels will clear up wrinkles, blemishes, and skin pigmentation. Deep peels attack severe wrinkles and sun damage and improve skin texture.
What is micro laser peel?
A micro laser peel (MLP) treatment is a way to rejuvenate sun-damaged skin by safely removing a thin layer of skin, a process that smooths out and improves skin texture. Unlike chemical peels, the depth of the laser peel is set precisely to target your specific needs. The more intense the peel, the better the results, but it does mean more downtime. Removing the damaged skin cells encourages fresh, healthy, collagen-rich skin cells to grow, leaving your skin plumper, healthier, and glowing.
Why winter is an excellent time for micro laser peels
As winter hits, the temperature and humidity drop, which can seriously affect your skin’s texture and tone. Skin can dry out and start looking dull from a build-up of dried and dead skin cells caused by the skin reacting to the changing environment.
Dead skin cells can also clog pores which may lead to oily skin and an acne breakout. A micro laser peel will remove the dry surface of the skin, encourage new skin growth, and leave you with a fresh, new look.
Limited sun means a relaxed recovery
Following a laser peel, we need to avoid the sun during the healing process, and the great thing about winter is we tend to socialize indoors. In the summer, it’s difficult to miss time by the pool or meeting your friends for a meal on a patio. Winter makes the whole experience a lot more chill, if you’ll pardon the pun, and more easily allows you to avoid the sun and its potentially damaging effects.
We up our skin-care game in winter
As the weather changes, we naturally take better care of our skin and ourselves. We apply more ointments and moisturizers to our skin and often sleep longer in winter. This self-care change will help you recover from your treatment faster.
Fractora treatment as an alternative to chemical peels
Fractora is a fractional radiofrequency (RF) treatment that’s used for skin rejuvenation and resurfacing. It can be used as an alternative treatment to chemical peels. Fractora heats the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen and elastin production, which helps keep the skin firm and elastic. The treatment can also be used to remove fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and uneven skin tone.
Fractora is also more versatile and can be used to treat areas of the body like the face and neck; however, it may not be suitable for certain skin types or skin conditions. Consult with a dermatologist to help you assess Fractora treatments and Fractora laser side effects to determine whether a Fractora procedure or a chemical peel is right for you.
