Winter can be one of the best times of the year — just not for your skin. In response to the colder weather, you might turn your heater on full blast and take longer, hotter showers. Unfortunately, these winter survival tactics can dry your skin. At the dawn of 2022, the last thing that should be on your to-do list is worrying about the chapped, uncomfortable skin that comes from the cold winter elements — even in sunny California.
While a healthy skin care regimen can go a long way toward ensuring a glowing, healthy complexion, sometimes even the most expensive skin care products cannot reach the damage at the deepest layers of your skin. At Tim Sayed MD Plastic Surgery, double board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Tim Sayed offers an array of options to help protect your skin all winter long and resurface, smooth, and brighten your complexion. Here are a few of our favorites.
The HydraFacial is a revolutionary three-in-one skin care treatment that provides patients with healthy, hydrated, and glowing skin. The HydraFacial uses a patented Vortex-Fusion delivery system that simultaneously cleanses, exfoliates, extracts, and protects the skin. During this luxurious 30-minute procedure, your provider will pass a handheld wand across your face. Attached to the wand’s tip is a HydraPeel tip technology that delivers Vortex-Fusion treatment to remove impurities and unclog pores while simultaneously applying a nourishing serum. With this all-in-one treatment, you’ll notice a dramatic improvement to your skin’s overall texture, tone, and appearance.
The CryoPen is a handheld device that uses pulsed controlled cold created by nitrous oxide that safely and effectively removes all undesirable skin imperfections. This device is excellent for treating skin concerns, including freckles, sunspots, age and liver spots, warts, and skin tags, while leaving the surrounding skin undamaged. CryoPen works by hyper-freezing areas of the skin with pinpoint precision. The nitrous oxide destroys the unwanted skin cells by freezing the fluids inside the cells. Once frozen, the fluid crystallizes, thus rupturing the cell membrane and destroying the cell.
SkinPen microneedling is a clinically proven microneedling device that can improve neckline wrinkles, acne scars, discoloration, and textural issues. Done in three sessions, it can help improve skin health and appearance so you can enjoy the confidence boost with soft, even, glowing skin. Our advanced microneedling tool creates thousands of tiny wounds. These act as channels that stimulate the body’s natural healing process while keeping damage to a minimum.
