Best Winter Skin Treatments

Your skin is the largest organ in your body, and our Minnesota winter weather creates skin challenges. With proper skin treatments you can mitigate and even use this time as a season of refresh.

If you are dealing with Minnesota outside winter weather I’m sure you have experienced several of these winter skin issues:
 (especially on your uncovered face)

  • Dryness and Dehydration
  • Chapped Lips and Skin
  • Redness and Sensitivity
  • Windburn
  • Eczema and Psoriasis Flare-Ups
  • Possible Frostbite
  • Sunburn: Especially on sunny days with snow reflection

Even if you do not go outside, staying inside during the winter brings additional skin sensitivities:

  • Reduced Humidity
  • Increased Skin Dryness
  • Aggravation of Skin Conditions
  • Uneven Skin Texture

As we embrace the cooler months of winter, and struggle with the unique skin issues, we do have solutions.  We have treatments for your winter care for dry skin. It’s the perfect opportunity to focus on rejuvenating and protecting and preparing your skin for the warmer days ahead. Winter is not just a time for cozy sweaters and hot cocoa, but also the ideal season to indulge in some of the most effective medspa treatments for your skin.

Winter Skin Treatments

Winter offers a unique advantage for skin treatments, such as microneedling, Morpheus8, laser therapies, and Moxi. With the sun taking a step back, we have the perfect setting for treatments that require minimal sun exposure during the healing process. Your skin can heal without the harsh interference of UV rays, reducing the risk of complications like hyperpigmentation and allowing for more effective results.

Skincare is not an overnight miracle – it’s a process. The treatments we discuss here are not just about immediate results; they’re about investing in the long-term health and beauty of your skin.  Ask about moisturizing your skin and feel fresh. By starting these treatments in winter, you’re paving the way for a radiant, glowing complexion.

Winter Skin Problems and Solutions

There are beneficial treatments to do now – to protect for winter weather and prepare for warmer temperatures.  Whether you’re a regular client of Artistry Aesthetics or looking for help with your skincare, out professional staff offers free consultation for your unique skin care.

Microneedling: A Winter Favorite

  • Why Winter?
    Microneedling involves creating tiny punctures in the skin to stimulate collagen production. The reduced sun exposure in winter lessens the risk of hyperpigmentation and allows for more effective healing.
  • Treatment Frequency:
    We typically recommend a series of 3-6 sessions, spaced 4-6 weeks apart for optimal results.
  • Planning for Summer:
    Start early in winter to allow your skin to undergo the full treatment cycle and recovery period. This ensures a fresh, rejuvenated complexion by summer.

Morpheus8: Deep Skin Remodeling

  • Why Winter?
    Morpheus8 combines microneedling with radio frequency to remodel and contour your skin. Winter is ideal due to lower UV levels, as the treatment can make skin more vulnerable to sun damage during the healing phase.
  • Treatment Frequency:
    Usually, 1-3 sessions are advised, spaced about 4-6 weeks apart.
  • Planning for Summer:
    Beginning treatments in the early winter months gives your skin ample time to recover and see its results by summer.

BBL, IPL & Hair Removal: Precision and versatility

  • Why Winter?
    Laser treatments target various skin concerns, from pigmentation to texture. Winter is preferred since these treatments can make the skin more photosensitive, and avoiding strong sun exposure is easier during this season.
  • Treatment Frequency:
    Depends on the specific laser treatment, but generally, intervals of 4-8 weeks are common.
  • Planning for Summer:
    Initiate treatments early in winter, allowing time for multiple sessions and recovery, ensuring your skin is in its best condition for the sunny days ahead.

Moxi: Gentle Yet Effective

  • Why Winter?
    Moxi is a gentle laser treatment that revitalizes the skin. The cooler months offer a protective environment for post-treatment recovery due to reduced sun intensity, making it a perfect time for such procedures.
  • Treatment Frequency:
    Typically involves 3-4 sessions, spaced about a month apart.
  • Planning for Summer:
    Starting Moxi treatments in the early winter allows the skin to heal and gain the full benefits of the treatment well before summer arrives.

Tips for Maximizing Winter Skin Treatments

  • Protection is Key:
    Always use a broad-spectrum sunscreen, even in winter, to protect the treated areas.
  • Stay Hydrated:
    Hydration is crucial for skin healing and health, especially in dry winter months.
  • Follow Post-Care Guidelines:
    Adhere strictly to the post-treatment care advised by your skincare professional to ensure optimal healing and results.
  • Consult Your Specialist:
    Artistry Aesthetics offers free consultation.  We’ll discuss your treatment plan and timing to tailor it to your specific needs.

Take advantage of the winter season!

Each treatment requires careful timing and post-care, making winter an opportune time to start, with its reduced sun exposure and the natural break it provides for healing and rejuvenation.  

Consult with Artistry Aesthetics to start your journey toward a flawless, radiant complexion by summer.
