Learn more about chemical peels at our Albuquerque med spa

When the seasons change, we always hear from our medical spa patients asking about the right treatments for the upcoming weather in Albuquerque. Whether they’re interested in new products to rehydrate their skin or a filler to awaken their eye area, we’re always excited to share our services.

With colder weather and the holidays just around the corner, we recommend patients take the chance to refresh their appearance with a rejuvenating treatment such as a Vitalize Peel® or an intense pulsed light (IPL) procedure. Both of these can help diminish age spots, minimize fine lines, and treat acne scars for healthier-looking skin ahead of all those photos at holiday parties.

Here are 3 reasons winter is the best time to receive a rejuvenating treatment.

1. You’re spending less time in the sun. Immediately after receiving a chemical peel or IPL treatment, your skin will be extra vulnerable to the elements, especially sunlight. In fact, the sun’s powerful rays can cause irreversible damage to your sensitive skin while it is recuperating from the treatment. Because the daylight hours are shorter during winter and you inevitably spend less time outside, this season is the optimal time for a rejuvenating treatment.

2. You’re already protecting your skin. The winter chill leads us to layer on scarves, jackets, and, of course, moisturizer. Slathering a pharmaceutical-grade moisturizer and other high-quality products on your face, neck, and chest becomes a part of your daily routine. Therefore, receiving a chemical peel or IPL won’t change your skin care plan as much as it would during the summer when you may use fewer or lighter products. Plus, if you receive a rejuvenating treatment on your skin or neck, your layered clothing will keep those areas well protected during the recovery process.

3. You’re in qualified hands at AlluraDerm. It is important to have an evaluation and treatment conducted by an experienced, trained doctor before your procedure to ensure it is conducted properly and does not cause adverse effects. Dr. Lam, Dr. Mancha, and the team at our medical spa understand the best chemical peels and IPL treatment methods for each individual’s skin type to give you the beautiful results you desire. During the winter, our team doubles down as we see an influx of patients.

As an added bonus, we are featuring a discount on both IPL and chemical peel treatments during the holiday months. If you’d like to see the outstanding results of these treatments before your holiday parties, we encourage you to call and book your appointment now. You may contact our medical spa online, or call our Albuquerque office at (505) 821-9630.
