Winter Skin Care

Winter Skin Care in Connecticut
Though many complain about their complexion during the winter, actually the colder seasons are the best time to undergo a variety of skin related cosmetic procedures. At Jandali Plastic Surgery in Connecticut, we offer multiple services that help to improve the appearance of your skin. Laser procedures and chemical peels are not as effective or safe on tanned skin for hair removal or treatment of sun spots. Therefore, winter time offers a better opportunity for skin resurfacing procedures and laser treatments.
Best Skin Treatments in the Winter
At Jandali Plastic Surgery in Connecticut we offer the following skin care treatments:
Winter is the best time to perform chemical peels! Erase the damage that was accumulated over the summer months and get rid of sun spots, brown spots, age spots, and hyperpigmented areas of skin. At our practice, our skin care specialist nurses use SkinMedica Illuminize, Vitalize, and Rejuvenize Peels, for skin rejuvenation.
At our Fairfield Connecticut plastic surgery practice, we offer DermaSweep Microdermabrasion. This particle-free microdermabrasion is a revolutionary system that uses bristles instead of sandblasting crystals at your face. These treatments can be combined with Epi-Infusions to target specific skin conditions, or PeelFusions to get deeper treatments without the peeling downtime of traditional chemical peels.
Dermaplaning is perfect for sensitive skin and removal of “peach fuzz” hair on the face. This is great in the winter months when the skin can be irritated and dry. It is a completely chemical-free means of exfoliation and removal of peach fuzz hair on the face.
At our Fairfield plastic surgery practice, we use Dermapen for micro-needling treatments for collagen induction. These treatments have revolutionized acne scar treatment due to the great results and minimal downtime. We also use these treatments to build up collagen and elastin in the face, helping with overall skin tone and tightening. We also use microneedling for stretch marks, as it helps them fade as it builds up collagen in the stretched out skin. Usually a series of Dermapen treatments is performed to achieve the desired end result. Contact our practice for information on special Dermapen package pricing.
Laser hair removal is most effective and safest when the skin is not tanned. It targets the dark hair best when the surrounding skin is the lightest. Therefore, laser hair removal works best in the winter and spring months. Also, it gives patients time to get a full package of treatments to be hair-free by summertime!
IPL (Intense Pulse Light) is a laser treatment based on light therapy. IPL is performed as a series of treatments for brown spots and red spots on the face, neck, décolleté, arms, or hands. IPL reverses the signs of skin damage and age spots.
Skin treatments are performed by one of our nurse skin care specialists. They all understand the skin aging process and various ways to reverse skin damage. They will counsel you on the best treatments for your skin type and your desires. They will customize your treatment plan in conjunction with Dr. Jandali.
