If you’re like millions of other people across the world, you’ve already started to consider your 2021 New Year’s resolutions. Do yours involve improving the health and appearance of your skin? As with any goal, you’ll need to plan for success!
Here are two skin treatments to consider each season to help you achieve your skincare resolutions and ensure a beautiful 2021!
Your annual skincare strategy should always begin with a thorough consultation by a Skin Artisans Advanced Practice Esthetician. She will perform a comprehensive analysis to identify your skin’s type and condition and listen to the concerns and goals you have regarding your skin’s appearance.
Your esthetician will then use this information to customize a plan to help you reach them. Your plan will map out the best treatments and products to get you the best results in the timeliest manner.

They say that summer bodies are made in the winter! That makes Minnesota’s snowiest months a great time to begin contouring your body with the world’s #1 non-surgical fat reduction treatment, CoolSculpting®! Reduce unwanted body fat by up to 25% with each treatment to your chin, arms, back, abdomen, flanks, thighs, & more. Because results may take up to 12 weeks to be fully realized, treating in the winter gives you the time you need before revealing your new curves and slimmer profile by spring!
Winter also means less sun exposure, especially in the Midwest! This makes it an excellent season for deeper laser treatments to avoid complications afterward from UV exposure. If you’d like to see improvements in your skin’s tone and texture, look no further than HALO™. This hybrid fractionated laser treatment uses dual wavelengths to treat both below your skin’s surface AND its superficial layers. HALO™ lifts away sun damage and discoloration while stimulating collagen and elastin production, resulting in a clearer complexion and smoother, tighter texture.
Short and skirt season is just around the corner when spring rolls around! That makes it the ideal time to address any annoying and unsightly spider veins on your legs. Sclerotherapy is a highly effective way to diminish the small, blue, and red mapping of veins that bother so many of us. Because multiple treatments may be needed, start treating in the spring to enjoy your results by summer!
Want to address acne scarring, enlarged pores, and fine lines? SkinPen® Microneedling uses tiny surgical grade needles to gently stimulate your skin’s natural collagen production. This results in firmer, tighter, and smoother skin after a series of treatments. PLUS – As long as you’re using a daily SPF of 30 or above, it’s a sun friendly procedure that can be performed all year round!
Many medical spa services can make your skin sensitive to sunlight and more prone to complications like hyperpigmentation, but that doesn’t mean you need to stop reaching for your skincare goals! If you’re striving for tighter skin, Sciton’s SkinTyte™ is a great treatment to start during summer. This non-ablative technology uses infrared heat to gently stimulate collagen production and, over time, results in subtly firmer and tighter skin. It is best for patients who are just beginning to notice a loss of elasticity around their eyes, cheeks, and neckline—and it’s sun safe!
Monthly DiamondGlow™ treatments are also a great way to treat, hydrate, and improve your skin through summer. Your esthetician can customize your treatment with various SkinMedica® pro-infusion serums that focus on hydrating, brightening, and clarifying your skin. DiamondGlow™ can also be performed on other areas of your body like the chest, arms, and back. It can even be combined with SkinTyte™!
Fall marks the beginning of laser season! Less sun exposure means heightened laser safety. This is the perfect time to consider cleaning up any sun damage and discoloration your skin has acquired during summer with VI Peels and Broadband Light (BBL) treatments. Both can remove damaged, pigmented cells and reveal a clearer, more even-toned complexion.
Is your goal to be hair-free by summer so you can ditch your razor and enjoy smooth, soft skin? Then, fall is the time to begin a laser hair removal package.
Hair removal with laser is most effective when performed in a series of treatments. This is because a laser can only treat your active, or “anagen” phase of hair growth. As a result, treatments need to be scheduled every 4 to 8 weeks to capture the next growth phase. Anticipate at least six treatments to achieve 90-95% permanent hair reduction.
