Spring Is Here, Is Your Skin Ready?


As we welcome spring here in Denver, we happily say goodbye to winter’s cold, dry weather that often wreaks havoc on a healthy complexion. However, if you are not careful, damaged skin can persist well past winter and into the seasons to ahead. Your skin doesn’t have to reflect the dullness of winter thanks to these treatment tips from the Center for Plastic Surgery at Castle Rock’s team of skin care professionals.

Hydrate with HydraFacial MD®

Whipping winds, low moisture levels, and the fluctuation between the weather outside and indoor heating takes a toll on our skin’s ability to hold in a sufficient amount of water. More than a dull complexion, dehydrated skin makes fine lines, wrinkles, and other skin imperfections appear more pronounced. HydraFacial MD is like a big drink of water for your skin. An infusion of antioxidants, hyaluronic acid, and peptides help to heal and repair tired winter skin. Bathing your skin in skin-healthy nutrients, HydraFacial MD gives your skin a rested and younger-looking fullness.

Exfoliate with In-Office Treatments like Dermaplaning

During the winter months, our cellular turnover slows and our skin cells do not renew themselves as frequently as they do throughout the rest of the year. As dull, damaged, and dead skin cells build up, our skin loses its natural vibrancy. The deep exfoliation treatments that we perform at our Denver practice help to remove the built up cells to help improve your skin’s tone and texture. A springtime favorite of ours is dermaplaning, which uses a gentle, shaving-like method to remove dull cells and vellus hairs (better known as “peach fuzz”)—giving your skin a baby-like smoothness. Exfoliating treatments, like dermaplaning, further benefit your complexion as they can stimulate future skin cell development and improve the efficacy of future skin care treatments and products.

Take Care of Your Skin with Medical Grade Skin Care

While everyone’s skin responds differently to seasonal changes, anticipating and planning accordingly with a proper skin care regimen is beneficial to all. We remind each of our patients that diligent at-home skin care can aid in a successful transition between the seasons. At the Center for Plastic Surgery at Castle Rock, we offer a complimentary skin care consultation to help you find the right skin care products for your own unique needs.

A well-timed spring treatment can help you transition from winter to spring and last you well into the summer season. The Center for Plastic Surgery at Castle Rock’s skin care specialist would love to talk to you about what treatments and products we have to address your individual concerns this season!
