Is Winter The Best Time To Get A Facial? We Think Yes!

Wilmington Plastic Surgery

Cold weather and changing temps can be hard on the skin and facials are a great way to combat dryness and promote healthier, hydrated skin. Also, this time of year, the sun isn’t as strong and we’re spending less time outside, giving your skin more protection from sun-damage and faster recovery times. Take a look below at some of the best facials to try this season and give us a call at 910-509-7546 to book your appointment!

Laser Facial

Laser Resurfacing Treatment is here to fight sun damage and reveal more youthful skin without the use of chemicals. The lasers will create micro-ablated channels in the skin that stimulate the growth of new collagen and you can also use to remove unwanted hair.

We offer three levels of treatment from mild to deep peels that can be used on the face, neck and body.

  • Level I Laser Peel — This minimally invasive laser peel buffs the skin, leaving it refreshed; little to no social downtime.
  • Level II Laser Peel — A deeper peel with very minimal social downtime; patients experience a little redness for two or three days.
  • Level III Laser Peel — This level of peel goes deeper to treat fine lines and wrinkles; expect four to five days of social downtime.

Why try it in the winter? Laser facials can leave your skin more vulnerable and sensitive to sun exposure, so the winter months are a great time to book this appointment. You’ll still need to lather on the sunscreen for protection, but your skin will be far more protected to promote a fast recovery.


Dermaplaning is an exfoliating treatment that removes the top layer of vellus hair on your face and uses deep moisturizing products that combat dryness to leave your skin better able to absorb hydration. The “peach fuzz” on your face can hold onto oil and grime and lead to clogged pores and a dull complexion, this treatment will remove the dead skin cells to promote new skin growth and a brighter, smoother complexion!

Why try it in the winter? Harsh winter weather can leave your skin dry and flaky, making now the perfect time to try our Dermaplaning Facial! This treatment helps combat the onset of dryness and get your skin back to glowing.

Chemical Peel

Chemical Peels are one of the most effective ways to brightening your complexion, reduce fine lines, improve sun-damaged and aging skin, and minimize scars, sunspots and more. We have 7 chemical peel options that we will help you choose from all focusing on various needs. Because these peels are medical treatments, we require a consultation with one of our licensed aestheticians to help evaluate your skin type and determine which chemical peel is best suited for your needs.

Why try it in the winter? A chemical Peel removes the top layer of your skin, leaving the new layer underneath very vulnerable to sun-damage. Because we’re spending more time inside during these colder months, now is a great time to book that Chemical Peel and give your skin ample time for recovery!
