Popular Winter Procedures
Summer months tend to be filled with time out of school, activities in the sun and traveling. Due to our activities in these months, some procedures are perfect for the winter season.
Any surgery that would involve visible scars such as face lifts, eyelid lifts, arm lifts, and tummy tucks with the fleur de lis incision are perfect for winter. We spend less time in the sun when its cold out and scars need to be protected from sun exposure. Sun exposure on scars will cause them to darken and become more noticeable especially in the first year post op.
Skincare services like chemical peels are also great in the winter for very similar reasons. A fresh face that has recently had a chemical peel can develop inflammation and pigmentation issues if exposed to a lot of sun without proper SPF protection. While sunscreen should be worn all year around as a part of your skincare routine, we tend to better protect our faces from the elements when its cold and we spend more time indoors.
