4 Reasons Why Winter is the Best Time for Laser Tattoo Removal

The colder temperatures have a lot of us missing the longer, warmer days of summer. However, winter is actually the prefect time for many beauty treatments at Salt Lake City medical spas—including laser tattoo removal. Read our post about laser hair removal during cold winter months here.

Learn four reasons why wintry weather makes it the ideal time to erase unwanted body art at Inklifters at Aesthetica Medical Spa.

1.   It’s easier to shun the sun.
At Aesthetica, we are always preaching how avoiding the sun will benefit your skin. But it is particularly important to avoid direct sunlight after laser tattoo removal. Doing so gives the treated skin a better chance to heal.

Salt Lake City laser tattoo removal patients should wear SPF 40 sunscreen on the treated area and avoid tanning for a minimum of 14 days, depending on how long it takes for the skin to heal completely. With our high elevation and predisposition to outdoor summer activities in Utah, winter conditions often mean less sun exposure, making it a great time to start the laser tattoo removal process.

2. Winter can keep your head above water.
Clients should be careful when exposing the treated area to water for several days or weeks after laser tattoo removal treatment.

Clients will need to keep the treated area out of the direct stream of water—even in the shower—for the first few days after laser tattoo removal. Completely submerging the area shouldn’t be done until it is completely healed, often takes several weeks after treatment. This means fewer lake, pool and beach days, which could disrupt summer vacation plans and weekend getaways.
3. Things may get hairy.
Clients should avoid shaving the treated area until the skin has completely healed after laser tattoo removal.

This could be a bit of a challenge for someone who doesn’t want to go au natural while removing a leg tattoo, for example. Winter’s long pants, skirts and tights keep your hairy secret under wraps while you erase unwanted body art at Inklifters.
4. Gives you time before next bikini season. 
Some of us prefer to hibernate during the colder months. But we often overlook the opportunity winter gives us to tackle beauty and fitness to-dos to prepare for the next pool season.

Picosure laser tattoo removal requires fewer treatments than older q-switched laser systems, but you will still need to dedicate several months to complete the process. Beginning tattoo removal at Inklifters now can make sure you are ready to show off your newly restored skin when temperatures heat up.

Conquer Your Skin's Winter Woes at Aesthetica

Like it or not, the Utah winter is upon us. Last week’s warm autumn temperatures in Salt Lake City have given way to a frosty chill and bitter wind. Some of us may be excited to hit the slopes, others may be planning a seasonal hibernation, but all of us have to face yet another season of winter skin issues.

Aesthetica Medical Spa, the best medical spa in Utah County and Salt Lake, has a revamped menu and complete line of skin products to prepare your skin for icy months ahead. Read on to discover just a few ways we can help.

Keep Your Skin Well Moisturized
As if our climate couldn’t get any dryer. But, alas, the winter means a drop in humidity, that’s why Salt Lake City residents often fight winter itch, all winter long. At Aesthetica, we have several options to help your thirsty skin stay hydrated this season including facial treatments and moisturizing products. Call to see which treatments we suggest for your specific problems associated with winter skin dryness. 

Treat Yourself to a Facial Spa Treatment
Check out one of our customized specials to help rebalance your skin. Salt Lake City medical spa clients have several options including the Aesthetica Express, a 30-minute facial to aid in speeding up cellular activity of the dermal cells to stimulate self-rejuvenation of the dermis, and the Aesthetica Paradise, a one-hour facial that improves skin clarity, elasticity, texture and overall skin health.

Upgrade Your Skincare Products
Winter is the perfect time to show your skin a little love by upgrading your skincare regimen. Aesthetica medical spa is proud to offer Obagi, the leader in medical-grade skincare products. This world-class skincare line provides amazing results to Salt Lake City medical spa clients by eliminating several visible skin conditions including sun damage, discoloration, dryness - among others. Stop by and chat with one of our skincare experts to see which Obagi products should be part of your routine.

Battle the Blues with Botox
A recent study in the Journal of Psychiatric Research found that Botox may treat the symptoms of depression. The study found a significant reduction of depression in patients after just one Botox treatment. Researchers claim that Botox may beat the blues because it is injected into several nerves that lead directly into the brain.

Many medical professionals are still skeptical about Botox treating depression; however, we do believe eliminating those fine line and wrinkles can give Utah County and Salt Lake City medical spa clients something to smile about. With just one treatment, injectables can make a significant impact to the look and feel of your skin. Choose from products like Juvederm, Botox, Radiesse, and others. All injectable treatments are performed in our beautiful medical spa by one of our highly experienced medical spa professionals.

Schedule Some Time for Med Spa Skin Love
Aesthetica Medical Spa, just a short drive from Salt Lake City, has everything you need to banish tired, dry skin from your winter. Experience customized treatments and products that will make your skin smoking hot no matter what the Salt Lake City thermometer reads.
