The cold, drier winter weather also brings a drop in humidity that can leave our skin feeling and looking dry and irritated.
Dr. Young recently appeared on Channel 69 News at Sunrise to offer several recommendations to address dry skin and help you maintain a healthy, glowing complexion throughout the winter months.
Tips for dry skin
- Increase your home’s humidity with a humidifier: humidity should be around 40% to reduce the effects of dry, cold air on the skin.
- Skip the long, hot shower: the combination of hot water and soap reduces moisture in the skin and exacerbates winter dryness.
- Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize: immediately replace lost moisture after a shower with a good moisturizer that is appropriate for your skin type. Young Medical Spa in Center Valley offers a signature line of cosmoceuticals and your doctor or esthetician can recommend which is best for you.
If you have patches of dry, red skin that persist or become larger, schedule a visit with Dr. Young to determine the cause and address any health issues to avoid skin damage and restore your complexion.
Winter skin Treatments
Winter time is also a great time to consider rejuvenating your skin and reversing damage caused by exposure to the sun and environmental elements. There are a variety of laser skin treatments available that can increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun during the healing process, making the winter months a perfect time to schedule them.
During a consultation, Dr. Young or one of his highly trained and experienced Licensed Estheticians can discuss the best options for you, taking into consideration your skin’s condition, cosmetic goals, time and budget. Treat yourself this holiday season to a skin treatment that will restore health to your skin and give you back that youthful, radiant glow.

As we age, the skin begins to lose its collagen and elasticity and also thins, exposing the damage caused by sun exposure and other environmental factors. Aging skin also takes longer to repair itself and regenerate new cells.
Young Medical Spa in Center Valley offers skin rejuvenation treatments and products that can help reduce the signs of aging. Skin rejuvenation enables the skin to regenerate new, healthy cells to restore a more youthful glow and address the effects of sun exposure and daily “wear and tear” experienced by the skin.
An important first step is a non-invasive treatment called Microdermabrasion. This quick and relatively painless skin treatment effectively breaks up the top layer of the skin where dead cells, dirt and oils can become trapped, causing the cells beneath to activate healing and in the process of doing so, regenerate new, healthy cells that will renew and refresh the surface of the skin. As a result of this process, the skin is also able to absorb moisture in the form of hydrating and rejuvenating skin creams which can accelerate the healing process as well as produce a healthier surface layer that has reduced signs of aging.
Patients who receive several Microdermabrasion treatments at specific intervals of time can visibly reduce the appearance of blemishes and dark spots on the skin as healthy skin growth is encouraged and supported with both multiple treatments and professional skin care products.
Young Medical Spa uses a crystal free, diamond tip for Microdermabrasion which offers excellent results with less discomfort during treatment and no “crystal residue” afterwards. Highly effective, the diamond tip is able to penetrate the upper layers of the skin and produce desired results in a gentler fashion.
Microdermabrasion can be used on the face, neck, chest, arms, hands, feet or back. While there are several over the counter versions of this skin rejuvenation, optimal results are achieved when administered by a licensed and experienced esthetician. Young Medical Spa is home to a team of skin care experts who can analyze your skin and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your skin type and personal cosmetic goals.

During the summer months, our skin is exposed to some of the harshest environmental elements, often for extended periods of time. The sun’s UV rays are the strongest during these summer months making sunscreen and skincare paramount to maintaining healthy skin that resists aging.

For many people, hair loss can be an emotional experience, affecting their self confidence and making them begin to feel older or less attractive.
NeoGraft™ offers those who have lost hair or have a receding hairline the opportunity to restore their hair with no sutures, staples and minimal downtime!
A premiere provider of this breakthrough technology for hair restoration, Young Medical Spa offers the FDA approved NeoGraft™ procedure in all office locations serving the Philadelphia area and the Lehigh Valley. Dr. Victor M. Otero, a member of the International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), has dedicated many hours to education and experience in the field of hair restoration and brings his expertise to Young Medical Spa, offering patients the minimally invasive NeoGraft™ Hair Loss Treatment for the best possible results that look and feel natural.
The NeoGraft™ process involves harvesting of individual hair follicles from the donor that are transplanted into the desired area- there is no need for a scalpel with this procedure and patients experience little pain or discomfort- and there is no linear scarring, a common result of more traditional transplantation methods.
Hair loss affects both men and women:
Although we tend to associate hair loss with the male population, women can also suffer from hair loss for a variety of reasons and frequently find it more devastating to deal with than their male counterparts. NeoGraft™ offers women an option for hair restoration that has many benefits and will allow them to wear a variety of hairstyles after treatment- including shorter styles!
If you have experienced hair loss and would like to discuss your options, schedule a consultation at one of our locations.
Young Medical Spa® was one of the first in the area to offer CoolSculpting® and is currently the ONLY premier provider in the region of this revolutionary, non-invasive procedure for eliminating unwanted fat permanently!
CoolSculpting® is available in ALL of the Young Medical Spa® locations, with Center Valley offering “dual sculpting”, through the use of two CoolSculpting® units, to reduce treatment time.
During a complimentary consultation, Dr. Young or Dr. Otero will determine your candidacy for a CoolSculpting treatment and discuss expected results: a typical candidate is seeking to reduce areas of stubborn fat or bulges- CoolSculpting® is not a weight loss solution. During your one hour treatment, the knowledgeable staff of Young Medical Spa and your personal clinician will ensure your comfort and answer any questions you may have about the procedure.
Patients do not need anesthesia during treatment, experiencing only a slight pressure and cooling sensation on the treated areas. After the procedure, most patients resume their normal daily routine.
Are CoolSculpting® results permanent?
CoolSculpting® freezes fat cells in treated areas that will be slowly flushed out of the body: this is why most patients will not realize the full results of the procedure for 2-3 months. There will typically be a noticeable change in affected areas in the first couple of weeks post treatment with the full result slowly appearing as the body removes the dead fat cells over the next couple of months.
Fat cells affected by the CoolSculpting® procedure are permanently removed and with proper diet and exercise, patients can maintain their new body contour for years to come!
We are excited to announce that Young Medical Spa® is the only Premier Crystal Provider for CoolSculpting® in a 50 mile radius of the Lehigh Valley!
We are committed to bringing our patients the latest technologies that work! With CoolSculpting®, you can reduce those love handles and unwanted belly fat all without needles, surgery, and downtime!
If you’re looking to lose a few inches, look to the leader in body sculpting and shaping! Look to Young Medical Spa® where consultations are always free!
