It’s that time of year—caroling, celebrations, and community ❄️
While most of us are excited to welcome winter this year, others are already having nightmares about dry, flaky skin.
Between the stress of the holiday season and the changing weather in Issaquah, it can be difficult to nail down the right skincare regimen.
Read on to learn more about the top med spa treatments for winter to help you look and feel your best.
Everyone wants to feel fresh and glowing before their holiday get-togethers! But it can be overwhelming to understand where or how to start.
Visiting a medical spa for a skin consultation can be one of the best ways to understand where to start.
During this time, we hone in on your unique skin, your short-term and long-term goals, and build a comprehensive regimen that could include a customized combination of:

A consultation is just the first step to investing in your skin care. Next is the fun part—professional treatment!
Did you know that not all med spa treatments are ideal for year-round use? Some of your favorites from the spring and summer may not be the best fit for the holiday season.
At most med spas in Issaquah, for example, fall and winter is “laser season.” That’s because treatments like Halo laser resurfacing, ThermiSmooth for sagging skin, and even moderate-to-deep chemical peels require the patient to abstain from sun exposure for up to 14 days after their visit.
But while these treatments are a great part of your overall anti-aging regimen, we also understand that not everyone has time for downtime!
That’s why today, we’re highlighting the best med spa treatments for winter that require little to no downtime ?
Botox is one of the most popular aesthetic treatments in Issaquah for a reason. We can apply Botox to a variety of areas of the face and/or neck to help:
… and the list goes on! Botox is one of the most versatile med spa treatments and is great for the wintertime.
In addition, at TLJ Aesthetics MD, we utilize an advanced technique called Microbotox or “Microtox” to distribute small amounts of Botox over a larger area of the face and/or neck to help diffuse fine lines, improve skin texture and sheen, and smoothen creases.
If you’re looking for a low downtime treatment, look no further! The HydraFacial is a simple but powerful treatment that clears pores and nourishes the skin with serums.
ClearSilk is another fan-favorite med spa treatment for winter. Being both non-invasive and non-ablative, ClearSilk is safe for all skin tones and types. It works by evoking your body’s natural process through the use of heat to clear pigment and reduce vascularity. This process also tightens the skin, evens skin texture, and leaves skin tissue looking younger and more vibrant!
Complimenting your winter med spa treatments with an at-home routine is essential for maintaining your results long-term.
But here’s a secret: the best skincare products don’t come from a drugstore. Without a prescription, these products are only allowed to have very small concentrations of their active ingredients.
You can purchase medical-grade products from a reputable medical spa or skin doctor in Issaquah.
? One of our favorites for fall and winter is our Pumpkin Clarifying Mask. Why pumpkin? It’s not just for the aromatherapy, although that’s certainly an added perk!
Pumpkin is full of nutrients. Plus, it has a small molecular structure, which means it is extremely effective for penetrating deeper into the skin to deliver those nutrients! It’s safe for most skin types.
Containing a 5% pumpkin enzyme, this clarifying clay mask can loosen debris and dead skin cells from your pores, reduce surface oils and blackheads, and promote clearer skin.
Paired with any one of the above treatments, the pumpkin mask is one of our favorite products to layer into your winter skincare routine for use up to 3 times a week.
There are many things you can do outside of a medical spa to stay healthy and promote glowing skin through the winter. Here are a few of our favorite tips.
