In Syracuse and Central New York, the long winter season is notorious for its frigid temperatures, harsh weather conditions, and dreary scenery. On top of all that, the winter weather also takes a significant toll on our skin.
According to the International Dermal Institute, environmental factors can wreak havoc on our skin during the winter season: “Cold winds and low temperatures can dry out skin, depriving it of balanced levels of oils, and contributing to premature aging. Prolonged exposure to the sun causes water to evaporate from skin. Forced air heating also dries out skin: warm, dry air acts like a sponge, soaking up moisture from everything it touches.”
Uncomfortable dryness, flaking, and irritation on your face can surely put a damper on your winter social calendar. SkinLaze Laser Skin Spa, in Fayetteville, NY, offers an array of services (performed by our trained medical aestheticians) and medical grade skin products to help nourish and moisturize your skin. Specifically, dermaplaning, microdermabrasion, and our medical grade SkinMedica products can help combat the environmental factors during these harsher months.
Dermaplaning is a gentle exfoliation with a surgical blade, performed with light feathering strokes. It exfoliates the epidermis and removes fine vellus hair (peach fuzz) on the face, and gives the skin a smoother finish and healthy glow.
Microdermabrasion is another exfoliation and skin rejuvenation procedure that specifically uses a diamond-tipped device to gently buff away the surface layer of skin. This procedure is a quick, easy improvement to your skin, leaving it feeling silky smooth and brighter. Microdermabrasion can be used for the neck, chest, arms, elbows, knees, back, hands, and the whole face.
Dermaplaning and Microdermabrasion can be combined with RevitaLaze℠ Laser Skin Rejuvenation, ULaze & Ultherapy non-invasive lifts, Provence chemical skin peels, or can serve as stand-alone treatments.
Along with our skincare treatments, our SkinMedica moisturizing products can give your skin a much-needed moisture boost this winter season – two of the top selling winter products include Dermal Repair Cream and TNS Essential Serum (Beauty Choice Winner New Beauty 2010 Award).
Dermal Repair Cream is facial cream that intensely hydrates and helps replenish moisture during these harsh winter months. The cream is ultra-rich, and leaves your skin feeling silky, hydrated, and revived. This replenishing, luxurious cream is also excellent as a night-time moisturizer.
TNS Essential Serum (TNS Recovery Complex® – Human Fibroblast Conditioned Media TNS®) is a revolutionary anti-aging skin treatment that is excellent for all skin types. The all-in-one serum is a physiological growth factor blend that also contains beneficial antioxidants and peptides. It rejuvenates the skin, improving the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, skin pigment, and texture. Used in conjunction with a great moisturizer (like the Dermal Repair Cream), this award-winning serum will not disappoint.
