We’re starting to feel it, are you? Springtime isn’t too far away, and we’ll soon be seeing the signs of renewal in nature. New flowers will bloom. The grass will look greener. The sky may take on a different hue of blue. Within all of this change, we may begin to take a new look at ourselves, too. We are, after all, a part of nature. Springtime isn’t about force. It isn’t a message like New Year, New You! No, it’s more about easing into what is. Easing into the natural beauty of being alive. Here at ReDerm MD Medical Spa in Denver, we love seeing the newness of spring and what that brings out in the skin. Here, we’ll discuss the cosmetic changes that can coincide with the seasons and what you can do to bring out more beauty at this time of year.
What Happens to Your Skin When the Seasons Change?
After months of chilly, windy, and dry weather, spring brings an abundance of sunshine and, in some parts, may also bring an increase in moisture levels in the environment. We can’t really compare our area to places like the South, but the springtime climate may include a boost in humidity that can be good for the skin in some ways but also somewhat agitating simply because it’s different. The change in the atmosphere can provoke allergies for many people and also skin conditions such as the following:
- Sunburn and sun damage
- Acne flare-ups
- Puffiness under the eyes
- Textural irregularities
- Blemishes or increased oiliness
As we head out to spend more time outdoors in warmer weather, we are at risk of the effects of UV exposure. Heading out for an afternoon hike in the hills may feel invigorating, but it can also put is in direct risk of sun damage that we will have to deal with at some point in time. Fortunately, simple, practical changes in routine can promote resilient skin at every age. Sometimes, though, a little extra help is needed. This is where we come in. Whether you are in need of corrective treatment to diminish the appearance of fine lines, sun spots, and rough texture or your goals are to enjoy the great outdoors with minimal impact on your skin, we have treatment options that will serve you well.
How You Can Promote Graceful Aging
One of the benefits of the business we’re in is that we get to experience the joy of helping people of all ages feel like their best selves. Many people assume that they either age or they age “gracefully” with the help of a plastic surgeon. If a plastic surgery procedure appeals to you, then that decision can feel easy. If you aren’t ready to explore that option or you know without a doubt that you want to age without the help of plastic surgery, that does not leave you without options. At ReDerm in Denver, we have a variety of ways to help refresh your skin. Some popular choices include:
- Dermal fillers. We mention this option first because one of the most significant changes to affect the facial aesthetic is a loss of volume. This begins to occur in our twenties and continues on from there. Dermal fillers work by replacing lost volume or even by adding volume to the skin where Mother Nature was stingy. Dermal fillers can plump the lips, the cheeks, or add width to the temples. They can smooth creases around the nose and mouth or the mouth and the chin, and can even rejuvenate the hands. While we love their versatility, what patients tend to love about dermal fillers is that they achieve instant results and do not require any downtime.
- Halo laser skin resurfacing. Don’t discount the value of this treatment at the term “skin resurfacing.” Laser treatments have come a long way and Halo is a prime example of this. The hybrid treatment addresses multiple signs of aging comfortably and so efficiently that this laser treatment is referred to as a form of non-surgical facelift. The Halo laser device is adept at correcting the signs of sun damage and can also refine pore size and reduce the appearance of fine lines and creases.
- Microneedling or Microchanneling with PRP. It is never too early for adults to begin considering how they want their skin to age. The primary factor in skin aging is the decline in collagen production that begins in our twenties. With this knowledge, many of our clients seek treatment before they are needed for correction. Microneedling and Microchanneling, especially with the inclusion of platelet-rich plasma, are outstanding treatments for collagen induction. With virtually no damage to the skin, these treatments instigate sufficient collagen remodeling to promote the necessary regeneration for smoother, brighter, more resilient skin.
