How to Get a HEALTHY GLOW this Winter

Jan 30th, 2014 In: Skin Care

Dear Dr. Anne,

My skin looks as gray, flat and dull as my garden does in winter. I need some color! Wearing more blusher makes it worse, and indoor tanning isn't good for me, from what I've been reading. What healthy ways can I give my skin a mid-winter boost?

Danielle, Lewisville

Dear Danielle,

Outstanding job on passing up indoor tanning as a viable cure for the winter blahs! The rise in skin cancer rates happens to coincide with the growth of indoor tanning. People who tan indoors are 74 percent more likely to develop melanoma, 2.5 times more likely to develop squamous cell carcinoma, and 1.5 times more likely to develop basal cell carcinoma than non-tanners. Indoor tanning is not an option that anyone in the medical community would recommend.

There are number of safe and healthy ways to improve the look and health of your skin. At Carolina Laser & Cosmetic Center, we offer both laser and non-laser treatments that are safe, proven and painless, to bring a flattering and healthy glow to your skin. Fillers like Radiesse immediately replace lost volume, and stimulate the production of your own natural collagen. Chemical peels and Microderm Laser treatments improve skin texture and result in a more youthful appearance. A little touch can make a big difference, too, like permanent make-up eyeliner: accentuating the eyes helps make your face appear instantly younger and more refreshed.

When you come in for a consultation, you'll share with me your areas of concern. After examining your skin, together we will map out treatment options, along with their pricing. From there you can pick and choose what treatment(s) you would like to pursue. The best option for you could be far simpler than you might think!

Looking healthy is best done without the help of the sun. Simply pairing a good skincare regimen with a procedure will go along way to help your skin get and keep a healthy glow. Give us a call today to schedule your visit, and you'll be one step closer toward achieving a healthy, glowing countenance, regardless of the season.
