Cold weather means the start of an exciting and festive holiday season. Putting on multiple layers of clothing might keep you warm, but your skin health and appearance can take a toll during this time of the year. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta is committed to providing the community with the best year-round skincare, so we’ve assembled the top tips to maintain healthy and radiant skin during the coldest months of the year.
Facial Chemical Peels
- Vitalize Peel® by Skin Medica®: This chemical peel improves skin texture, tone and fine facial lines. Patients achieve a healthier and more vibrant complexion after a 30-minute session.
- Neostrata® Prosystem Retinol Peel: For patients who want to smooth and brighten their skin during dry and cold parts of the year, the Neostrata® Prosystem Retinol Peel is a great cosmetic option.
- Illuminize Peel by Skin Medica®: The Illuminize Peel is our most gentle peel with a short 20-minute treatment. It’s an ideal selection for the holiday season because it’s a fast and effective way to rejuvenate your face before you’re preoccupied with family and friends.
Hand and Foot Peels
Consistent wind and low temperatures on your hands is a perfect combination for dry or cracked skin. A hand peel refreshes skin quality, creating a younger and more smooth appearance. This is an often neglected part of the body that deserves cosmetic attention during the colder months of the year.
Just because your feet are frequently covered up, it doesn’t mean that they aren’t in need of a rejuvenating chemical peel. The Baby Foot™ chemical peel can exfoliate damaged skin, increase softness and improve overall appearance. Many patients enjoy this procedure because it can be done from home.
Eczema and Psoriasis Treatment
The fall and winter months can typically exacerbate symptoms of eczema and psoriasis. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta operates fully equipped eczema and psoriasis centers that offer patients a customized treatment plan to reduce symptoms. Whether it’s through a topical prescription, oral medication, injectable medicine or light therapy, our providers are dedicated to finding a form of treatment that works for patients.
Rosacea Facial Flushing Treatment
As many people with rosacea and facial flushing know, cold weather can be a trigger for flare ups. Dermatology Associates of Atlanta provides both surgical and nonsurgical, medical, and laser treatments. In more severe cases, our experienced providers can also perform safe surgical procedures to rid patients of rosacea symptoms.
The Vampire Facial utilizes Microneedling to stimulate a natural production of collagen, which gives skin a youthful appearance. Then, your Dermatology Associates of Atlanta provider will use PRP to reach deep layers of skin and magnify your cosmetic results.
