Spring Treatments to Combat Winter Damage

The skin is both the largest organ of the body and the organ responsible for protecting you from a doozy of environmental challenges. The team at Refined Dermatology knows that winters can be especially tough on the skin, especially for those who flock to the mountains for winter sports. Rough, dry, cracked, and winter-burned skin can put a real damper on looking your best for spring break. If you’re looking for a pick-me-up for your skin during these blustery winter months, there are a number of treatment options available.

Skin gets rough and dry due to lack of moisture—a common problem in the winter months. Fortunately, your body has natural ways of addressing such issues, but it could use a little help. Microneedling employs tiny needles to gently puncture the skin, encouraging the production of collagen and elastin. While the skin heals from these invisible micro-injuries, it’s also producing a lot more of the natural ingredients that keep skin youthful, plump, and moisturized.

You can make your microneedling session even better by combining it with platelet-rich plasma injections. This MediSpa procedure uses your own blood (just two teaspoons) to concentrate your plasma and inject it directly into the targeted areas. Plasma is full of growth factors that speed up the healing (and collagen production) process even more.

Other clients have realized in the winter months that their skin could use a little more than a refresher. Dermal fillers are a fantastic way to replace lost volume in the face and hands, or create the volume that was never there. If you really want kissable lips for those spring flings, it might require more than getting rid of chapped lips. A solution like Voluma offers natural-looking results for plumper, fuller lips on a semi-permanent basis.
