Miami winters aren’t quite like the quintessential snow-filled seasons you find elsewhere. With plenty of sun and sand, winters here can just feel like an extended summer. But even minor drops in temperature can cause some unpleasant changes to our skin. And as the weather keeps changing, it can be a struggle to keep up or even know how to best deal with it.
Give your skin some extra TLC and combat the harsh effects of the season by utilizing some of the most innovative non-invasive treatments available to keep skin glowing well into springtime.
How the Winter Can Affect Skin
People also tend to stay indoors and use artificial heat sources, including staying in hot water longer during the winter months. The heat also increases skin dryness, causing it to look dull and lifeless.
Winter Glow Up: How to Cheer Up Winter Skin
Even sunny Miami isn’t immune to weather changes during the late and early months of the year. These time periods can leave skin looking worse for wear. Fortunately, Dr. Mendieta offers a few minimally invasive ways to restore skin and create a beautiful winter glow.
With effects comparable to a facelift, the Silhouette InstaLift® offers patients a unique way to lift tired-looking facial muscles for a beautiful rejuvenating effect.
Similar to a thread lift, the Silhouette InstaLift® also uses temporary small sutures to lift facial skin and tissue. It uses bi-directional cones made with a special polymer that’s designed to be absorbed by the body. It works its magic and lifts drooping muscles.
Dr. Mendieta uses local anesthesia to place the sutures, which tighten facial contours immediately, providing rejuvenation right away. The entire procedure takes about 45 minutes to complete, with minimal recovery and downtime. Results can last up to two years.
This facial treatment uses its hybrid fractional laser process to resurface and renew skin at the same time. It targets tissues with a precision and depth that provides long-lasting rejuvenation.
Its innovative process also ensures Halo facial treatments result in little downtime for patients. This is an appealing option for patients who want to restore dull winter skin right before the holiday season begins.
