Dry Winter Skin? How We Can Help

LaserLights-laser-servicesOur winters may not get as cold in Georgia as they do in some other areas of the country, but we have our fair share of dry, frigid days that can make anyone want to hibernate at home under a blanket. Unfortunately, the cold air isn’t just uncomfortable. It also wreaks havoc on your skin, sapping away all the moisture it has and leaving it dry and dull.

Have you been struggling with dry winter skin? At Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, we can give your skin the equivalent of a deeply refreshing drink of water – you’ll almost be able to hear your skin say, “Ahhh, finally!” There are several treatments for dry skin we can offer to rebuild your skin’s much-needed hydration.

Silk Dermalinfusion® Microdermabrasion

Silk Dermalinfusion® microdermabrasion is a widely popular treatment because it strikes a wonderful balance between gentleness and effectiveness. During this treatment, we use a diamond-tipped handpiece to exfoliate away the dead and damaged skin cells on the surface of your skin. Those cells tend to build up when your skin is dry because they’re flaking off, and they can give you a dull complexion which microdermabrasion can resolve.

What makes Silk Dermalinfusion® unique from other microdermabrasion, though, is that this advanced technology also infuses your skin with a specialized serum hand-selected by your provider to tailor the treatment to your needs. In the case of dryness, we’ll be using a rich hydrating serum.

Because of the way Silk Dermalinfusion® applies this serum while exfoliating your skin, the serum penetrates deeper into your skin to restore and rebuild your moisture barrier. It’s a powerfully effective dose of hydration – a far cry from your daily moisturizer at home.

Hydrating Facial

If you want a particularly gentle treatment to just give your skin a quick refreshment, a facial from our skin care specialists could be the perfect solution. Our licensed aestheticians customize every facial to the patient, so your hydrating facial will focus entirely on soothing and hydrating your dry winter skin.

Skin Analysis and Consultation

Alongside our cosmetic skin treatments, our aestheticians will also give you personalized guidance for your skin. We’ve spent years working with patients one-on-one to give them the best skin of their lives, and we put that expertise to use for you by examining your skin and making specific recommendations about how to address your dryness and any other concerns or goals you might have. This can include specific skin care product recommendations, changes to your skin care routine at home, and more.

Treatments to Address Related Skin Concerns

Dry skin often doesn’t appear on its own – it usually comes with other cosmetic skin issues too. For example, our skin tends to get drier as we age, especially when the hormonal changes of menopause set in, so people with dry skin often have wrinkles they want to reduce too. Dry skin also tends to make your complexion look dull.

This is where it helps to have the guidance of a skin care specialist like our licensed aestheticians. We can discuss any concerns you have for your skin and recommend treatments and even products beyond those that are designed for dry skin. Treatments like microneedling, laser procedures, or chemical peels can be tailored to brighten a dull complexion, for example. We have a wide range of wrinkle treatments as well including fractionated laser skin resurfacing, non-surgical skin tightening, and more.

Getting Healthier, Brighter Skin

The winter doesn’t have to bring about dull, dry skin if you have the help of a skin care specialist who can give you the expert care and customized guidance you need.
