Dermatologist Munich: Cold weather, thick clothes, dark days, sallow complexion – it all reminds us of winter. Many would like to go into hibernation like some of our animal friends. However, the cold season is a good time to even out small visual blemishes and to have beauty treatments carried out. We’ll tell you which ones do particularly well in winter in this blog post.

Remove spider veins
Spider veins are small blue-reddish ramifications that become visible under the skin mostly at the back of the knees or on the thighs. In most cases they have no medical significance – but an aesthetic one, because they do not look beautiful. Those who find spider veins unattractive and want to have them removed can get rid of them by sclerotherapy (sclerotherapy with a drug by injecting it into the small vessels). Another option is laser treatment. After both treatment methods, patients have to wear compression stockings for a few days. Since this is more comfortable in winter than in summer, the cold months are the better time to treat spider veins. In addition, the sclerotherapy effect does not work optimally in warmth and sun – because UV radiation can cause pigmentation disorders in the treated area.

Fractional lasers for skin improvement and wrinkle treatment
Fractional lasers are currently among the most modern methods in skin treatment. Their energy is not applied to the entire skin surface, but only selectively. In this way, tiny, completely harmless wounds are created. They activate processes that in turn drive the production of collagen and new elastic fibers. Small islands of “untouched” skin remain between the treated areas. This enables faster regeneration. The treatment can treat mild to deep wrinkles as well as mild to moderate tissue sagging. Acne scars and pigmentation/age spots also respond well to laser treatment.
Our fractional CO2 laser (eCO) is used for so-called skin resurfacing. After the treatment there is a downtime of about one week and you have to protect your skin very well from sunlight. Of course, winter is ideal for this! We perform the treatment only from October to mid-March.

Body modeling with body contouring
Winter is not exactly the optimal season to get the perfect beach body. Too many treats like cookies, egg dishes, cocoa or mulled wine are tempting. Delicious roasts with dumplings included. As fast as the pounds land on the hips, as difficult they are to get away again. Because if there is a fat distribution disorder in the body, fat deposits often cannot melt away as one would like, despite sport and iron diets. In this case, body contouring can help. This refers to various treatments that harmonize the proportions of the body, optimize and model the figure (note: they do not replace dieting!). Possible therapies are the fat-away injection, the radiofrequency treatment enCurve, Cellfina against cellulite, the radio/ultrasound treatment BTL Exilis Elite™ or the radiofrequency therapy Attiva.

USING WINTER FOR BEAUTY
Dermatologist Munich: In principle, these and other treatments can, of course, be carried out throughout the year – but since the effect can begin with a time delay, it is wise to prepare for the spring already in winter.
