The anxiety many people feel over the holidays as a result of work, family, shopping demands and reuniting with friends and relatives can take a toll on the skin. Here are the four best skin treatments for soothing the post-holiday stress and looking your best at all times as you ring in the New Year.
Microdermabrasion takes only a few minutes with no downtime to exfoliate and polish your skin, shedding old or damaged skin cells and encouraging the growth of new collagen. Many patients notice a healthy glow after only one treatment, but this procedure typically delivers optimal results in a series of sessions spaced two or three weeks apart.
2. Chemical Peels
Peels work to reduce the appearance of fine lines, age spots, scarring and wrinkles by revealing the fresh layer of skin underneath the old one. Chemical peels come in different strengths to cater to your unique skin needs. Light peels require little or no downtime, while more intensive treatments may require up to a week of recovery time.
Dermaplaning is a procedure that removes dead skin cells as well as peach fuzz, resulting in softer and smoother skin. The treatment involves gently sweeping a scalpel across the skin that removes old skin and unwanted hair.
Facials are tailored to your specific needs, and can be incorporated into your regular skincare routine to bring out the best in your skin. Facials can be excellent for keeping your pores clean, your skin moisturized and your oil levels under control.
Combining procedures can provide an even more comprehensive skin treatment, so don’t be afraid to mix and match under the guidance of your skincare specialist to ensure that your complexion reflects your very best.
