Winter is for sled riding, hot cocoa, and, most importantly, treating yourself right. Just because temperatures are dropping doesn’t mean your selfcare routine has to. There are plenty of aesthetic treatments for winter that can help ease dry winter skin, remove the leg hair you know you haven’t shaved in months, and even help you prepare your beach body for summer. Why wait? ‘Tis the season to treat yourself.

Take Care of Your Hibernating Body

If the idea of snowfall and a rapidly dropping wind chill factor triggers daydreams about warm sun and sandy beaches, now might be the time to book your dream vacation. If your next reaction is to cringe at the thought of having to don a bikini instead of your bulky parka, you’re in good company. For folks who have stubborn areas of unwanted fat, winter provides a great opportunity for treatments like CoolSculpting®.

CoolSculpting uses a highly controlled cooling technique called cryolipolysis to literally freeze away unwanted fat. In a 1 to 2-hour appointment, depending on the areas of treatment, CoolSculpting could help remove stubborn pockets of fat that haven’t responded to regular diet or exercise. It’s nonsurgical, FDA-approved and gentle enough that you can read a book, catch up on your email or scroll through your feed while you do it.

Brighten Dull Winter Skin

Snow, frost and dipping temperatures are all sure-fire signs of winter, but so is dull, dry, flakey skin. Winter skin is real and it causes many people to feel uncomfortable and unconfident in their own skin. There are aesthetic treatments for winter that can help you feel more like yourself If you’re combatting the symptoms of winter skin.

Skin resurfacing techniques like microdermabrasion, microneedling and chemical peels can help slough away dry and dead skin to reveal the fresh, healthy skin beneath. It’s not just winter skin that these treatments can tackle. Old acne scars, rough textures and superficial imperfections could all see improvement with an individualized treatment plan.

Skin resurfacing treatments can provide much needed relief from dull winter skin.

You know what helps beat the winter blues? Lasers. Laser skin treatments are available for a wide variety of skin and body concerns. In winter, though, unshaven hair can grow wild beneath sweaters and thick jeans and woolen socks. Take care of unwanted hair before summer rolls around with laser hair removal. It’s not just reserved for neglected leg hair, either. Laser hair removal can be a solution to unwanted hair anywhere on your face or body.

Laser treatments can help with a variety of skin problems including:

  • Smooth fine lines.
  • Even skin tone.
  • Treat rosacea.
  • Deal with saggy skin.
  • Reduce the appearance of spider veins.

Laser treatments are non-invasive and can be paired with other aesthetic treatments for winter.

Sure, it feels good to hunker down in the wintertime, but that’s no reason to let your selfcare routine slide. The colder months can feel much warmer and brighter when you indulge in aesthetic treatments for winter that’ll have you feeling and looking your best when springtime comes.
