5 Ways Dry Winter Skin Benefits From HydraFacials
Seasonal weather changes can significantly affect the skin. The winter months can wreak havoc on delicate facial skin, from excessive dryness to a cracked and uncomfortable complexion. Additionally, those who already suffer from skin issues like eczema may notice their skin becomes even more aggravated and inflamed.
The root word of HydraFacial
says it all: HYDRATE. A soothing treatment that helps revitalize dry damaged winter skin after just one session, the HydraFacial is the first facial skin resurfacing treatment that simultaneously exfoliates and moisturizes the skin. Our skin experts at Vein & Laser Institute recommend HydraFacial treatments to restore the skin and protect it from the dehumidifying effects of cold winter air.
How Skin Is Affected By Seasonal Changes
With winter comes cold, dry air that sucks the moisture out of delicate facial skin. Even when warm and snug indoors, heated air continues to dry out the skin. Warm showers or baths also tend to strip skin of the oil barrier that protects it from harsh winter elements.
Many people attempt to solve dry skin by slathering on layers of heavy moisturizers and lotions. However, over-moisturizing frequently leads to greasy skin and breakouts from clogged pores. Topical moisturizers can prove ineffective for many skin types in the winter, which is why HydraFacials are ideal for promoting long-term skin health.
In just 30-60 minutes, a HydraFacial treatment offers deep hydration that can last for weeks
. The entire process is customizable to address each person’s unique needs while providing the following key benefits.
Even if you’re drinking enough water throughout the day, your facial cells benefit from topical hydration. During a HydraFacial, our providers infuse the skin with the best moisturizers and serums for your unique needs. This infusion will last throughout the month and works in conjunction with moisturizing skincare products used at home. Our providers can offer suggestions on how to best select the perfect at-home skincare products
for combating dryness, flakiness, redness, or any other winter skin woes.
As skin ages, natural circulation slows, which dulls the complexion. A HydraFacial increases the facial skin’s blood flow, which creates a healthy glow. Improved circulation helps ensure more youthful-looking skin all winter long.
Vitamin and Antioxidant Infusion
Cells need nutrients to thrive. During treatment, your skin’s surface is saturated with specific vitamin serums, and antioxidants will be placed on the skin, providing superior anti-aging benefits
. These serums hydrate and nourish your skin on deep levels, helping combat winter windburn and protecting the skin from other harsh elements. They also aid in reducing inflammation, speeding up new cell turnover, and reversing sun damage.
A Clearer Complexion
At-home skin care products can leave behind blackheads and clogged pores. During the extraction step, the HydraFacial uses a painless suction process to remove impurities from deep within the pores. Once the debris is removed, the skin is in an optimal state to absorb the moisturizing agents. The extraction process will clear pores of acne, blackheads, and other skin impurities that create skin blemishes and imperfections.
Improved Long-Term Skin Health
The HydraFacial treatment is ideal for combating sun damage and other seasonal environmental stressors. Regular HydraFacials will keep your skin glowing and healthy inside and out – especially during the dry and dull winter months. Anyone searching for an excellent, preventative skincare treatment that offers noticeable results should consider a HydraFacial.
