Winter Is the Best Time to Start a Series of Skin Treatments! What’s the Right Choice for You?

That’s right! The frigid winter months here in New England can provide you with the best cover to finally go for that laser skin treatment or other medical spa pampering you’ve been wanting. With cold temperatures for the foreseeable future, you’ll be spending most of your time huddled indoors, out of the reach of the sun and the elements. That’s why now is the best time to revitalize your skin—that, and by starting now, you’ll be looking your best come summer.

Dr. Doyle performs a wide range of skin treatments at the Centre for Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, with methods that can strip the years and the hairs away! Here, we take a closer look at what each of our treatments do in order to help you understand what procedure is right for you this Winter.

Leave the Signs of Aging Behind

When it comes to your skin, the signs of aging can present themselves in many different ways. Whether on your face, neck, chest, arms, or other body parts, aging can manifest itself as wrinkles and fine lines, enlarged pores, roughness, dryness, uneven pigmentation, and other undesirable irregularities of the skin.

Without a doubt, the number one contributor to prematurely aging skin is sun damage. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, the sun accounts for an estimated 90 percent of skin aging. Years of carefree fun outdoors can take their toll on your skin, causing age spots, uneven pigmentation, fine lines, wrinkles, and worse. Fortunately, you can turn back the hands of time with laser treatment. Best of all, these laser treatments carry minimal side effects and little-to-no downtime.

Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) PhotoFacial is a versatile photo therapy method that can address damage such as age spots and uneven pigmentation on the face, neck, chest, and body caused by aging and the sun. It can also treat spider veins, rosacea, and hemangiomas. Targeted light wavelengths penetrate the dermis to activate the body’s own healing mechanism to clear away underlying issues in the skin.

Another way to erase the signs of aging is with laser resurfacing. Wrinkles, fine lines, enlarged pores, melasma, stretch marks, and other unattractive skin irregularities can be addressed with either non-ablative skin resurfacing or ablative skin resurfacing therapies.

It’s not just sun-damaged skin and the signs of aging are corrected with IPL and laser skin resurfacing—acne and surgical scarring can also be reduced using the above methods.

Tighten Loose Skin

Firm up loose, sagging skin all while turning back the clock on wrinkles and fine lines with Vivace Microneedling RF. The latest FDA-approved microneedling innovation uses radio frequency to contour and tighten the face, neck, hands, and body. It does this by triggering the body’s own natural production of collagen, helping to smooth and rejuvenate the skin.

Another safe, non-surgical skin tightening treatment that nullifies the signs of aging and a skin laxity is Ultherapy. This ultrasound energy technology also works by stimulating body’s own healing process to progressively lift skin on the face, neck, under the chin, and on the elbow, as well as smooth out unwanted wrinkles and lines on the décolletage.

Be Vein Free

Unsightly veins are an issue that many Americans have to deal with every day. According to WomensHealth.gov, about 50 to 55 percent of women and 40 to 45 percent of men in the United States suffer from some form of vein problem. You can banish those visible blood vessels in the legs with laser vein treatment. This quick, comfortable therapy takes a non-invasive approach to ridding your skin of spider and reticular veins with little to no downtime afterward.

Enjoy Smooth, Hairless Skin

Last but certainly not least, Dr. Doyle is able to offer hair removal to her clients of all skin types, hair colors, and even those with finer hair. With IPL technology, we are able to achieve long-term hair removal success quickly, with minimal discomfort, and no downtime.
