Why Microdermabrasion Makes an Excellent Winter Skin Care Treatment

With the slower pace of life and cooler weather, winter offers a perfect time to treat the damaging effects the sun and environment have on your skin. One of the easiest ways to do this is with a microdermabrasion skin treatment, which works to remove the dead, dull, and dry outer layer of your skin, to reveal new and radiant skin underneath.

Quick Facts About Microdermabrasion Skin Treatment

  • Microdermabrasion works to gently exfoliate the top layer of your skin, thereby stimulating your body to increase cell turnover and produce collagen.
  • At Glo Skin and Medspa, our diamond tip microdermabrasion treatment uses a unique facial wand to gently, yet powerfully, exfoliate the dead and dry layer of your skin, restoring your youthful glow.
  • This skin treatment takes approximately 60 minutes. Most patients experience no discomfort and because there’s no downtime, you can return to your daily activities almost immediately.
  • Microdermabrasion has also been proven to be an excellent skin treatment for patients with acne or light scars.
  • For optimal improvement, microdermabrasion should be repeated once a month.

3 Reasons to Consider a Microdermabrasion Treatment This Winter

If you are considering a skin resurfacing treatment such as microdermabrasion, the colder season is often the best time to do it because during the winter months:

  • You’ll be exposed less to the sun, reducing the risk of hyperpigmentation following your procedure.
  • You’ll have more time to recuperate indoors, without the pressure of any outdoor activities or upcoming vacations.
  • You can counteract any skin damage that was done during the summer, such as dry skin, hyperpigmentation, or more defined wrinkles/fine lines.

7 Tips For Recovering From Your Winter Microdermabrasion Treatment

Even though microdermabrasion is a minimally invasive procedure, your skin will most likely be sensitive after your treatment. You can expect some facial itchiness or redness, which may last up to 48 hours following the procedure.

To ensure your skin heals quickly and properly, follow these 6 simple tips:

  1. Make sure to clean your face properly and immediately after your treatment using a wet cloth and rehydrating toner. This will remove any dead skin cells that have been leftover.
  2. Talk to your skin specialist about using a rich moisturizer, once your skin has dried completely. Continue using the moisturizer for at least 4-6 days after your treatment to avoid any excessive peeling.
  3. Don’t forget to apply sunblock every time you go out, even if it is overcast during the winter. This is important because microdermabrasion increases photosensitivity.
  4. Stay out of the sun for at least one week after your skin treatment to prevent any damage to your new skin.
  5. Keep hydrated by drinking plenty of water, fluids, and eating fruits and vegetables.
  6. Scratching or picking at your skin should be avoided completely to ensure the best results. Also, avoid irritating your skin with any harsh chemicals or tanning for at least one week.
  7. If you have any tenderness or a burning sensation, talk to your skin specialist about using a cold-compress or anti-inflammatory cream to relieve any discomfort.

I came in to enquire about some skin imperfections and botox etc. The staff was especially sensitive to what I needed and complimented what I already had. I hope the staff excel in the areas of dematology/age tolerations in their career. They are a must with this area of beauty. Thanks for all of the valuable information.
