It’s that time of year again, the Christmas break is nearly upon us, sun/holidays/lots of scrumptious food and a little indulgence! January comes and we start thinking what we want to do for ourselves once again. I thought this month’s blog we would discuss what seasons of the year is best for treatments so you can forward plan your skin & body treatments for the new year.
This time of the year is recommended to limit laser treatments due to the sun exposure we get here in Australia as the UV is at its highest. Laser treatments that you could look at for rejuvenation is laser genesis which stimulates collagen and elastin in the skin helping with underlying redness, fine lines and wrinkles, enlarged pores and scarring or Titan for skin laxity. Chemical peels, microdermabrasion and skin needling can be performed through these months as well, but being aware of sun protection is needed.
Product Tip: Ensure your wearing appropriate SPF daily and reapply every 2 hours.
This is the perfect time to start your laser treatments. IPL for pigmentation, excel V + for vascularity, laser hair removal and benign lesion removal. Our injectable moisturiser is a perfect add on to any skincare treatment routine, aiding the skin to hold onto hydration through the cooler months in Canberra. During the cooler months chemical peels are a great way to boost the skins hydration and overall health.
Product Tip: As the seasons change so does our skins hydration. Ensure you add hyaluronic acid serum and a more hydrating moisturiser into your skincare routine now.
October – December:
This is the time of the year we want to start getting ready for the summer months whether its body contouring procedures such as emsculpt NEO or coolsculpting for those stubborn pockets of fat, or facial rejuvenation procedures like EMFACE, laser genesis, Titan and facial injectables such as anti-wrinkle injections, filler or our injectable moisturiser to give the skin the boost that is needed after the cooler months.
Product tips: This is the time of year we all want a glow, use vitamin A in the evening to give your skin a boost smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles and brightening the skin giving it a more youthful appearance.
