Low temperatures and less solar radiation make it worth opting for treatments in a beauty salon in winter. Laser epilation, mesotherapy or photorejuvenation are treatments that are best performed at this time of the year.
Winter is a good time for treatments in a beauty salon. Due to the lower exposure to solar UVA and UVB radiation, the risk of discoloration after aesthetic medicine treatments is much lower. In winter, wounds heal better, possible swelling is smaller and the body recovers faster. Therefore, this time of year is the best time for an exfoliating treatment after intense sun exposure in summer or laser hair removal, which we perform on unburned skin.

Laser hair removal
Laser hair removal is the most effective method of removing unwanted hair. During the procedure, the laser emits a beam of radiation that irretrievably destroys the hair follicles without damaging the skin. The effectiveness of the laser depends, among others on skin color (the lighter the better) and hair color (the darker and stronger, the better the effect). In order for the hair to be damaged, it must be in the active growth phase. As each hair goes through this phase in its own rhythm, the treatment must be repeated at least 3-4 times, 4-9 weeks apart. Winter is the perfect time to perform laser hair removal treatment, because the epilated skin cannot be tanned. Additionally, two weeks after the treatment, the skin should not be exposed to sunlight.
Chemical peeling allows you to quickly remove freckles, acne scars, discoloration or small wrinkles. The most popular chemical peels are glycolic, almond and salicylic acid. The preparation applied to the skin causes the epidermis to exfoliate for several days, revealing younger skin.
The effects and healing time depend on the concentration of the exfoliating preparation and how long it is left on the skin. Most often, the epidermis peels off a few days after the treatment. Winter is a good time to perform chemical peeling, we just have to be careful about severe frosts, which additionally irritate the skin.
If we prefer the mechanical peeling to chemical peeling, microdermabrasion is the solution for us. The treatment smoothes and regenerates the skin, improves its elasticity and color. If our skin is delicate, sensitive and prone to allergies, let's opt for diamond microdermabrasion, which consists in removing dead skin with the use of a head covered with diamond crystals. People who have discoloration on the skin and enlarged pores are recommended corundum microdermabrasion, i.e. powder. Aluminum hydroxide crystals are ejected under high pressure, rubbing the epidermis and reaching the deeper layers of the skin. This treatment is stronger and gives faster results.
Needle-free mesotherapy involves the use of a device that generates high-frequency electricity. It reaches the interior of the skin, as well as through the cell membrane to the interior of the cell. This allows for the opening of new ways of introducing active preparations into the deep layers of the skin without the need for needles. After the treatment, the skin becomes healthier, smoother, firmer, moisturized from the inside, looks more refreshed, and delicate wrinkles disappear.
Removal of moles
Moles are visible changes in the skin caused by a deficiency or excess of one of the tissue components. Most of them do not need to be removed, but some moles and birthmarks can be dangerous. If the dermatologist decides to remove the birthmark, we have a choice of surgical or laser methods. The laser treatment is best carried out in low sunlight, i.e. in winter. Additionally, after each treatment, the skin should be protected against sunlight.
