Holidays are the best time to take a well-deserved break from your busy work schedules, meet up with friends and family, go traveling, dig into your favorite treats, and whatnot.
But, did you know that the holiday season can wreak havoc on your skin as well?
Read on to know why that happens – and to learn more about our top-pick skin rejuvenation treatments that can help reverse holiday skin damage effectively.
4 Ways Holidays Affect Your Skin
1. Holidays Make It Hard To Keep Up With Your Skincare Routine
Neglecting regular exfoliation amidst the holiday rush can lead to a build-up of dead skin cells and clogged pores. As a result, it can cause your skin to break out more often, leaving acne scars behind.
2. Binge-Drinking During Holiday Season Can Dry Out Your Skin
Excessive alcohol intake can result in dull, dry and lifeless skin. In turn, dry skin causes fine lines and wrinkles to look more pronounced.
3. Holiday Stress Can Make Things Worse For Your Skin
The holiday season comes with a lot of stress that might result in unwanted skin damage.
For starters, stress causes a surge in the stress hormone called cortisol which triggers the increased production of oil in your skin glands, clogging your pores, and causing your skin to break out.
Second, stress triggers certain changes in your body that might aggravate common skin conditions, such as eczema, psoriasis, and rosacea.
4. Unhealthy Eating During the Holidays Can Cause Skin Damage
What’s a holiday without sugary treats, junk food, and sweetened beverages?
Unfortunately, excessive sugar levels in your blood can weaken the natural structural proteins in your skin called collagen and elastin. Collagen and elastin are responsible for keeping your skin healthy, firm, and supple. As a result, it can cause common signs of aging such as fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin.
That said, here are a few skin rejuvenation treatments that we are offering at LUXE that can help keep these skin issues at bay.
Top Skin Rejuvenation Treatments At Luxe Medical Aesthetic
Facials provide a complete solution for cleansing, exfoliating, rehydrating and soothing dull, dry, and sun-damaged skin. At LUXE, we offer different customized facials that can address common skin concerns such as acne, acne scars, fine lines and wrinkles, and dehydrated skin rather quickly. For example,
- The LUXE Signature facial can leave your skin feeling more soft, supple, and vibrant than ever.
- Dermaplaning facials can help remove the top layer of dead skin cells and buildup, leaving your skin evenly textured and smoother.
- Anti-acne facials can help remove oil, bacteria, and dead skin cells from clogged pores, reducing acne breakouts, and can also address acne scars.
- Our HydraFacial™ can quench your skin from within, leaving it super hydrated and glowing. It can also help with fine lines and wrinkles and brown spots, and improve skin elasticity, making your skin look and feel younger than ever.
- Other facials include anti-aging facials, back facial treatments, and our iconic Red Carpet Fire and Ice facial.
Microdermabrasion is another facial rejuvenation treatment that uses a small device to scrape off the top layer of dead skin cells gently and effectively. It can help:
- Reduce the appearance of sun-damaged skin
- Even out your skin texture and tone
- Promote new cell growth
- Help reverse common signs of skin damage
- Increase the absorption of other topical skincare products
3. Chemical Peels
A chemical peel is a skin rejuvenation treatment that involves the application of certain solutions on your skin to peel off the top layer of dull, dead and sun-damaged skin.
Chemical peels generally fall under three categories (i.e., mild, medium, and deep chemical peels) based on the strength of the exfoliation chemicals used.
They can address a wide range of skin concerns, such as fine lines and wrinkles, blemishes, sun damage, dark spots, bumps, acne breakouts and acne scars, and hyperpigmentation.
At LUXE, our highly skilled and well-trained team of medical professionals use two top-of-the-line peel treatment lines: VI Peels and Glymed Peels. They carry out each chemical peel treatment with utmost care to help you achieve effective results safely.
4. Laser Skin Rejuvenation Treatments
Advanced laser skin rejuvenation treatments can help reverse skin damage caused during the holidays rather effectively and within a few sessions. They’re safe for all skin types and require no downtime afterward.
Laser treatments such as Lase MD Ultra and Clarity II can be used to address facial skin concerns such as melasma, blemishes, fine lines and wrinkles, sun damage, age spots, acne scars, and stretch marks, while revitalizing your facial skin. While Clarity II Laser Genesis can help rejuvenate your face as well as neck, hands, and décolleté.
5. RF Microneedling
RF microneedling combines the benefits of two advanced and revolutionary skin rejuvenation procedures: microneedling and high-energy radiofrequency (RF) waves.
It can help trigger an increased production of collagen and elastin in your skin, making it appear subtly firm, plump, and supple to the touch.
At LUXE, we use GENIUS™ by LUTRONIC to treat deep lines & wrinkles, acne scars, sun damage, reduce pore size, skin laxity, and uneven skin tone & texture.
6. Microneedling with or without PRP
For microneedling alone, we use SkinPen – an FDA-approved microneedling device that can produce effective results within 3 to 6 treatments. However, it can also be combined with a PRP treatment that can further rejuvenate your skin from the inside out.
PRP (short for platelet-rich plasma) contains stem cells, growth factors, and other essential components that can promote new skin cell turnover, and revive dead and dull skin, making it look more beautiful and youthful than ever.
At LUXE Medical Aesthetics, Katy, TX, our highly skilled team of medical professionals works meticulously towards providing you with a safe environment where you can talk about your aesthetic concerns and goals freely. They are well-trained to offer you top facial rejuvenation treatments so you can carry out all your holiday plans without a care in the world.
