3 Ways to Revitalize Your Dry Winter Skin

Dry skin treatment in Manhattan

Winters in the Northern United States are incredibly harsh and dry, causing our New York patients to struggle with dry, irritated skin and a dull complexion. The low humidity and frigid temperatures strip the natural oils from your skin and worsen eczema and psoriasis. Keep your skin hydrated with a thick moisturizer, drink plenty of water, and call our board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your skin health and cosmetic goals.

Dry winter air may cause these skin issues: 

  • Tight skin
  • Rough skin texture
  • Itchy skin
  • Mild to severe skin flaking
  • Scaly patches that may peel 
  • Cracked skin
  • Fine lines 

Dr. Joshua Greenwald at Greenwald Plastic Surgery can help ease the effects of New York winters with laser treatments and face procedures that lessen signs of aging and promote softer, more supple skin. You can enjoy smoother, younger skin by spring or summer. 

1. Precision Tx Laser Facelift 

Dr. Greenwald offers Precision Tx laser facelift, a minimally invasive surgery that uses laser technology to rejuvenate the lower face and neck. The procedure requires no incisions or stitches and offers a smoother, more voluminous facial appearance. Precision Tx technology promotes collagen production for more radiant and healthier skin with a lifting effect. 

2. Fraxel Dual Laser Resurfacing 

The Fraxel dual laser treats sun-damaged skin and signs of age, such as wrinkles and volume loss. The laser technology triggers the growth of new, healthy skin cells for a refreshed complexion with an even texture and tone. Fraxel laser improves hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and other skin concerns. Laser resurfacing can reveal more vibrant skin and eliminate the dull skin appearance caused by winter weather. 

3. Facelift or Eyelid Surgery 

This winter’s dry weather may draw more attention to your facial wrinkles, making you appear older, tired, or angry. Facelift focuses on the mid- and lower face, and eyelid surgery rejuvenates the upper and/or lower eyelids for a well-rested, youthful glow. Dr. Greenwald may recommend one or both procedures to achieve your desired appearance. 

Improve Your Skin Health with Medical Grade Care

Our med spa services can match you with a medical-grade skincare product or regimen to address your dry winter skin. Facials and microneedling treatments can counteract the effects of the colder climate this time of year.
