A new year for a new skin care regimen? Yes, please! Setting and sticking to your skin care resolutions may sound daunting, but trust us when we say, switching up your routine is as simple as three steps. Here’s a look at our top resolutions to make for skin care success in the new year:
1. Adhere to monthly aesthetic maintenance.
No matter the treatment, no matter the season, maintaining your skin care results requires your full participation. Have you ever heard that prevention is easier than correction? By actively treating your skin, you’re not only contributing to a glowing complexion, but helping to prevent signs of aging and ward off other skin conditions. For instance, regular Botox® treatments can help prevent temporary lines from turning into deep-set wrinkles and maintain a younger, refreshed appearance for longer. Another way to maintain healthy, radiant skin is with skin-renewing treatments like SYLFIRM X Radio Frequency microneedling with Exosomes. The reason we also refer to microneedling as collagen induction therapy is because it triggers your skin’s natural healing response to spur vibrant new collagen and elastin growth, the building blocks of strong, supple skin. To keep your benefits building, we will help design an ideal maintenance regimen for you based on your treatments, skin care needs and desired results.
2. Change your routine seasonally.
Just like most things, skin care changes with the seasons. The spring/summer is all about sun protection and cleansing, while the fall/winter requires extra moisturizing. You may have already noticed that while a lightweight lotion is sufficient in the summertime, you need to up the moisture-level in the winter with a heavier cream. But no matter the season, if you’re prone to dry skin, you should consider using only gentle, fragrance-free products in your daily routine. You should also always protect your skin from sun exposure by applying sunscreen every day. At Skin Care Institute, we can help you tailor your regimen to the seasons with medical-grade skin care products from trusted brands such as SkinMedica®, Revision® Skincare and EltaMD®.
3. Get your laser on!
Even though the year just started, we’re in the final months of laser skin rejuvenation season. Since laser-treated skin is hypersensitive to sun exposure, it’s best to undergo your laser resurfacing treatments in the fall and winter. Plus, now that the holiday parties have ended, there’s no better time to start. Laser skin treatments work hard to renew your skin from deep within, helping to correct common skin concerns such as sun damage, lines and wrinkles, rosacea/redness, uneven skin tone and texture and much more. With a series of treatments, you can recover your skin’s glow, luminosity and smoothness for the long term. We offer several state-of-the-art laser options, including Lumecca IPL photofacial, Clear + Brilliant®, BARE HR™ laser hair removal and Fraxel® skin resurfacing. During your consultation, we will determine which treatment is best suited to your unique needs and goals.
