Each winter, we prepare our homes and cars to withstand the weather ahead—but we rarely give our skin the same courtesy. We’ve got the perfect treatment to “winterize” your skin at Cosmedica in Burlington. It’s a microneedling treatment called the Beauty Booster, and boy does it make you beauty-ful!
How Winter’s Weather Affects Your Skin
Let’s consider what happens to skin in the winter time. The biggest concern we hear from skincare patients at our Burlington medi spa is that they experience dryness, often to an uncomfortable or even painful extent. Harsh winds, lower humidity, indoor heating, and long sleeves can all contribute to dryness, itchiness, flaking, cracking, and chapping. Dry skin also has a tendency to look older, as lines and wrinkles become more pronounced (imagine a raisin) and skin becomes less resilient.
While hydrating the skin with topical products can help ease these symptoms, winter’s harshness often calls for something stronger. Enter Beauty Booster microneedling—our favorite way to deliver nourishing active ingredients beneath the surface to bring out your skin’s best (no matter the weather).
How Beauty Booster Works
Beauty Booster is a unique option for enlivening skin from the inside out. To get the “boost,” we combine a popular procedure—microneedling—with a special injectable treatment called TEOSYAL® Redensity I. Unlike facial fillers, which men and women use to physically fill in their wrinkles, Redensity I provides skin with a “shot” of deep nourishment where it can be used most effectively. Redensity I contains a special blend of hyaluronic acid, amino acids, antioxidants, and vitamins that are clinically recognized to have beneficial properties.
A Beauty Booster treatment works by delivering the serum just beneath skin’s surface with a series of brief needle sticks. By combining a local anesthetic with the device’s vacuum tip, discomfort is greatly reduced. The Beauty Booster microneedling device penetrates the skin at a precise depth for a controlled treatment that’s proven to be as safe as it is effective.
Little to No Downtime
One of the most appealing aspects of Beauty Booster is its lack of downtime! While your face is likely to be sore and mildly inflamed (as well as temporarily numb until the anesthetic wears away), most patients feel confident in returning to their normal daily activities as soon as they leave the office.
How Soon Do You See Results ?
The beautiful thing about this treatment is that you see results in a matter of days! What can you expect? Improved texture, enhanced brightness, and fewer lines.
