Reveal Your Freshest Skin Yet: The Top 5 Spring Treatments to Try Now

Reveal Your Freshest Skin Yet: The Top 5 Spring Treatments to Try Now

Spring is a season of renewal and new beginnings. After enduring the cold winter weather, your skin may have lost its radiance, leaving it dull and lackluster. If you’re looking to refresh your complexion and reduce signs of aging and sun damage, there’s no better time than now.

Fortunately, there are many effective cosmetic treatments available to help you achieve healthy, glowing skin just in time for the new season. Whether you want to eliminate dark spots, reduce fine lines or rejuvenate your skin overall, there’s a treatment option to achieve your goals.

To help you get started, we’ve compiled a list of the top 5 skin rejuvenation treatments for spring. All of these treatments are relatively quick lunchtime procedures and require zero to minimal downtime. With the right treatment, you can reveal your freshest, most radiant skin yet and feel as fresh as a new daisy this spring.

1. Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a popular noninvasive treatment that uses tiny crystals to exfoliate the outermost layer of dead skin cells. By doing so, it reveals the younger, smoother skin underneath. This process also stimulates collagen production, which results in plumper, healthier-looking skin.

What Does Microdermabrasion Treat?

Microdermabrasion is an excellent choice for those with dull, congested skin that may have built up over the winter. It can address various skin concerns, including fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars and hyperpigmentation. This treatment is also effective in unclogging pores and reducing the appearance of blackheads and whiteheads, leaving your skin looking fresh and revitalized.

Diamond-Tip Microdermabrasion

At Senza Aesthetic Medicine, we use a diamond-tip microdermabrasion wand that provides superior exfoliation compared to other methods. The wand’s diamond tip allows for precise and controlled exfoliation, which minimizes the risk of irritation or damage to the skin.

2. Dermal Fillers

As we get older, our bodies produce less collagen and elastin, which are proteins that keep our skin looking plump and firm. As a result, our skin becomes thinner and less elastic, making it more prone to sagging and wrinkling. Volume loss can also occur as the fat pads beneath our skin become thinner, leading to hollows in certain areas of the face.

Dermal fillers are injectable substances that restore fullness to areas of the face that have lost volume, making them a great way to achieve a youthful, rejuvenated look for spring.

What Do Dermal Fillers Treat?

Fillers can smooth wrinkles, correct hollows and other depressions in the skin, and enhance your facial contours. They can also be used to enhance your lips, giving you a fuller pout with more definition.

Dermal fillers can address the following concerns:

  • Nasolabial folds (“smile lines”)
  • Lip lines (“smoker’s lines”)
  • Marionette lines
  • Under-eye hollows
  • Hollows at the temples
  • Loss of cheek volume (“sunken cheeks”)
  • Contour deformities along the jaw
  • Pitted acne scars
  • Other types of depressed scars
  • Thin, undefined lips
  • Wrinkles and visible veins on the back of the hands

At Senza, we offer a variety of fillers, including JUVÉDERM and Restylane. These fillers contain hyaluronic acid, which are naturally occurring molecules in the body that help hydrate and plump up the skin. We also offer RADIESSE, a filler made from calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that restore volume and stimulate collagen and elastin production. The results of these dermal fillers can last up to two years depending on the type of filler used.

3. BOTOX® or Dysport®

Dynamic wrinkles are formed as a result of repetitive muscle movements and facial expressions that occur over time. When we make facial expressions such as smiling, frowning or squinting, the muscles in our face contract and cause the overlying skin to crease or fold. With repeated movements, these creases and folds become more pronounced, leading to the formation of dynamic wrinkles such as crow’s feet, frown lines and forehead wrinkles.

BOTOX and Dysport are injectable neurotoxins that relax the muscles that cause dynamic wrinkles and fine lines to form. By reducing muscle movement, the wrinkles in the affected area are able to smooth out.

What Can BOTOX® or Dysport® Treat?

BOTOX® and Dysport are particularly effective in treating the following:

  • Crow’s feet
  • Frown lines (between the eyebrows)
  • Forehead wrinkles

In addition to their cosmetic uses, BOTOX and Dysport can also treat excessive sweating and migraines.

BOTOX® Vs. Dysport®

While BOTOX and Dysport are similar, they do have some differences. Dysport may diffuse more easily, making it a better choice for larger treatment areas like the forehead. BOTOX, on the other hand, may be preferred for smaller, more precise treatments like crow’s feet. Both injectables provide results that can last up to four months.

4. HydraFacial

The HydraFacial is a noninvasive treatment that cleanses, exfoliates and hydrates your skin to improve your skin health and radiance. It involves multiple steps and a specialized machine to remove dead skin cells and impurities while infusing your skin with hydrating serums. By giving your skin a deep cleanse and boost of hydration and nutrients, the HydraFacial treatment can help improve the texture and overall appearance of your skin.

What Does a HydraFacial Do?

The HydraFacial can improve the appearance of the following concerns:

  • Fine lines
  • Enlarged pores
  • Congested pores
  • Dark spots
  • Acne
  • Dry skin
  • Oily skin

At Senza, we customize the HydraFacial treatment to your specific needs, using a variety of serums and boosters to achieve the best possible results.

5. Laser Skin Resurfacing

Laser skin resurfacing is a noninvasive treatment that uses laser energy to remove or heat the outermost layers of damaged skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin cell regeneration. This treatment helps improve skin texture and tone, giving you a more radiant complexion.

What Does Laser Skin Resurfacing Treat?

Laser skin resurfacing can address the following concerns:

  • Fine lines
  • Wrinkles
  • Acne scars
  • Other types of scarring
  • Age spots
  • Enlarged pores
  • Warts
  • Birthmarks

At Senza, we offer CO2 laser resurfacing, fractional ablative resurfacing and fractional non-ablative laser resurfacing. The type of laser skin resurfacing for you will depend on the extent of your concerns and whether you can take a few days of downtime to allow your skin to heal.
