Midwestern winters can be brutal. In Indiana, lake-effect snow, gusting winds and below-freezing temperatures not only wreak havoc on homes and roads, but can leave your skin looking and feeling dry, itchy and dull. At Indiana Plastic Surgery, we offer non-surgical skincare treatments to rejuvenate winter skin. Try one of our skincare treatments to keep your face glowing all season long.

Chemical Peels for a Bright Complexion

Chemical peels can improve the appearance of rough, dull skin caused by harsh winter conditions and are the perfect complement to a good at-home skincare regimen. Make them a part of your regular skincare routine or use them to prepare for an in-office treatment, such as dermaplaning or microdermabrasion.

A chemical peel is designed to improve your skin’s:

  • Texture
  • Color
  • Pore size
  • Overall appearance

It can also improve skin that appears to have a wrinkly or “crepe” texture. Our Munster and Valparaiso offices offer light and medium chemical peels depending on your treatment goals. A light chemical peel is often enough for most patients to achieve a brighter wintertime look and can be completed in as little as 15 to 30 minutes. 

Dermaplaning for a Smooth Appearance

Dermaplaning non-surgically restores your skin’s texture by bringing out the healthier skin underneath any dry, patchy or rough spots that have appeared this winter. During a dermaplaning procedure, one of our licensed aestheticians will use a scalpel to gently remove the thin layer of hair — often called peach fuzz — from your face, as this is where dirt, oil and other toxins can build up. The result will be clearer, fresher looking skin for the warm weather to come.

Microdermabrasion for a Natural Glow

Similar to dermaplaning, microdermabrasion revives your skin’s natural appearance. A gentler procedure than dermaplaning, our microdermabrasion treatment uses a DiamondTome wand to softly remove your skin’s outer layer, as well as any dead skin cells. Our DiamondTome wand uses diamonds instead of the more abrasive crystals typically found in other microdermabrasion instruments. Within 30 minutes to an hour after your microdermabrasion treatment, your skin will begin producing new cells for a brighter, healthier appearance.

In-Office Facials for Every Skin Type

Facials soothe and hydrate dry winter skin using vitamins, antioxidants and exfoliants to create a smooth texture. They’re also a relaxing treatment that can help you reset after the busy holiday season. We offer a variety of facials depending on your skin’s texture and needs. Some of our more popular winter facials include:

  • Hydrating Facial for moisturized, smooth skin that’s ready to face the cold Indiana winters
  • Revitalize Therapeutic Facial to brighten a dull complexion using fruit extracts for a healthy glow
  • Rejuvenating Facial that boosts cell metabolism for a brighter overall appearance

We also offer medical-grade facials and facial add-ons for an even deeper cleanse.
