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

Winter’s lower temperatures and harsh, cold air often strip skin of much-needed hydration. Skin begins to dry, irritate and even crack, worsening existing conditions like acne or eczema.

People also tend to stay indoors and use artificial heat sources—including 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 last months of the year that 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.

Silhouette InstaLift®

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, to work its magic and lift 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 treatment uses its hybrid fractional laser process to resurface and renew skin at the same time, targeting tissues with a precision and depth that provides long-lasting rejuvenation.

The Halo facial can help restore skin by removing signs of sun damage, smoothing over lines and creases, and improving overall skin texture.

Its innovative process also ensures Halo facial treatments result in little downtime for patients, making this an attractive option for patients who want to restore dull winter skin right before the holidays start.

Neo® Laser by Aerolase®

Neo® Laser treatments provide a wide range of options suitable to nearly any patient and skin type out there.

Its strength lies in its powerful lasers, which penetrate deeply into the skin to repair hyperpigmented spots, tighten loose skin, and remove scars and wrinkles.

The uniquely formulated lasers target skin effectively while using less heat, minimizing skin damage and recovery time from the treatment.
