Indulge In Winter Rejuvenation With Renew Medical Spa

Are you feeling the winter blues? The early evenings and grey landscapes can cast a shadow over social plans, but there’s a surprising benefit: the winter months are the perfect time for esthetic treatments that require downtime. The dry air and crisp conditions can leave skin feeling dehydrated, but soothing spa treatments can combat your winter skin woes. Here are five treatments offered at Renew Medical Spa that will ease those winter blues and get your skin glowing and refreshed:

Chemicals Peels: A chemical peel is a cosmetic treatment that involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes the outermost layer of skin cells to slough off. This reveals the brighter and smoother skin underneath. As a versatile treatment, it can be used to combat skin concerns such as fine lines, wrinkles, acne scarring, or sun damage. The type of peel you need, as well as the depth, should only be determined by a qualified and experienced skincare professional. After your peel, the new skin is temporarily more sensitive to the sun, so it’s essential that you avoid sun exposure for 2-3 weeks after the treatment.

Forever Young® Phototherapy: If you’re looking for a powerful treatment for firmer and more even skin, Forever Young® Phototherapy may be the right fit for you. This innovative therapy uses broadband light to target sunspots and fine vessels that cause redness. The heat also stimulates the production of collagen, which boosts the structure and volume of the skin. Some of its most prominent uses include treating: Sun spots or frecklesHyperpigmentation (such as melasma)Rosacea or rednessPort Wine stains Small facial veins
After your Forever Young® Phototherapy treatment, the downtime is relatively minimal. However, some patients report minor swelling or redness or the feeling of a sunburn. It’s crucial to avoid sun exposure for 2-3 weeks after the treatment, and use a high quality SPF 50. This makes winter a perfect time to achieve smoother and firmer skin with Phototherapy; you won’t miss any of those sunny days at the lake.

Microneedling: This unique cosmetic treatment uses tiny needles to penetrate the outermost layer of the skin, creating microchannels. This process stimulates the body’s natural healing process and promotes production of collagen and elastin. Used to improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation, microneedling can provide visible results after just one treatment. Like other treatments, you may experience minor redness and swelling and need to use a pure mineral makeup (such as Jane Iredale) while you heal. You’ll also need to avoid sun exposure and wear a high-quality SPF for the 2-3 weeks after the treatment.

MicroLaser Peel: Also known as laser resurfacing, the MicroLaser peel offered here at Renew removes the outermost layer of your skin to pave the way for new, healthy tissue. It’s also customizable for your individual needs and can range from shallow to deep based on what you are hoping to target. Shallow peels can help minimize fine lines and sunspots and can improve dull skin. Deeper peels improve overall texture, tone, and can reduce more prominent wrinkles. Depending on which peel type your provider recommends, your downtime will range from 1-7 days, and you’ll need to avoid sun exposure for 2-3 weeks after your MicroLaser peel. Our experienced providers will work with you to find the best option based on your skincare goals and the amount of downtime you can arrange, so winter is an ideal season for this treatment too.
ProFractional® Laser: This resurfacing treatment uses a laser beam to create thousands of microscopic channels in the skin. By creating these channels, the body is stimulated to begin the natural healing process which provides new skin cell growth. Typically, ProFractional® Laser is a great solution for a variety of skin issues, including:

  • Sun or environmental damage
  • Wrinkles and fine lines
  • Scarring (including acne scars)
  • Hyperpigmentation or brown spots
  • Pore size
  • Skin laxity, tone, and texture.
  • Similar to a MicroLaser peel, patients usually need 1-7 days of social downtime and 2-3 weeks of avoiding sun exposure to achieve the best results.

The winter months are the perfect time to begin or continue your unique skincare journey. Renew Medical Spa can partner with you whether you are scheduling your first esthetic treatment or continuing towards long-term goals for a more glowing, youthful experience. Give us a call today to ditch the winter doldrums and rejuvenate your skin and spirit.
