Winter Treatments

Winter in Montreal is a big deal. It affects everything from our social lives to our health and beauty routines. If you’re not sure how to take care of your skin this winter, allow us to help you. Here are six treatments at MunkMD that are perfect for the colder months!

1- Injections 

There’s never a bad time for fillers and neuromodulators. Since there’s no downtime with injections (besides the minor possibility of bruising) it’s a quick and easy perk-up treatment around the holidays and all winter long!

Fillers add volume to lift or accentuate sagging areas, such as the cheekbones, jaw, or under-eyes. They can also be used to provide hydration and improve skin texture. Neuromodulators relax muscles in order to reduce and prevent fine lines and wrinkles.

2- PRP 

The Platelet Rich Plasma treatment can be used in two major ways. The first is to improve hair quality, and the second is as a rejuvenating skin treatment. This natural treatment uses your own blood to encourage collagen regrowth and cell turnover, and results for both hair and skin are truly impressive. These are great winter treatments because they give your hair and skin a nourishing boost, reducing the drying effects of cold winter air.

A full course of PRP treatments consists of 1-6 treatments spaced 6-8 weeks apart. Final results can take several months to appear. PRP on the scalp has no downtime, but if you do a micro needling PRP facial you can expect about a day of redness while your skin heals.

3- CoolSculpting 

Planning ahead for your summer vacation body? Winter is an ideal time to start

CoolSculpting treatments as final results will take a few weeks to a couple of months- your body will be refined just in time to start shedding layers in the spring!

With little discomfort and no downtime, CoolSculpting is truly the best option for body sculpting and refining. It can target any area that can be squeezed: inner/outer thighs, under-arms, stomach, love handles, double chin, and more.

4- Laser skin rejuvenation 

After laser treatments you must avoid sun exposure, so winter’s shorter days are an ideal time for them!

There are several options when it comes to laser treatments, which means that a wide range of issues and symptoms can be treated: sagging skin, hyperpigmentation, large pores, etc.

This is why we always begin any treatment plan with a personalised consultation with Dr. Munk.

Whether you have persistent problems like acne, or just want a refreshing and rejuvenating facial, laser treatments truly elevate a regular beauty routine to the next level.

5- Ultherapy 

If you want to put your best face forward, consider Ulthera (https://munkmd.com/blog/ultherapy-a-facelift-without-surgery/), the lifting and tightening treatment for the brow, cheeks, chin, neck, and décolletage. It will give your skin a healthier, younger appearance.

There’s no downtime, and a single treatment is required, making this the perfect gift for yourself or a loved one. Final results will be seen within a few weeks to a couple of months.

6- Picoway Tattoo removal

If you’re considering tattoo removal, the winter is prime time to begin since we tend to wear more clothing coverage and don’t get sun exposure. Full results take four to six treatments spaced eight to ten weeks apart.

Picoway tattoo removal is superior to traditional methods of tattoo removal because it is faster, safer, and more specialized.
