Does your skin and body need a little extra TLC during the cooler months? Winter is the perfect opportunity for facials and non-invasive body treatments. The days are shorter and we tend to wear more layers of clothing to keep us warm, hence, less skin exposed to the sun (which you’re often asked to avoid post-treatment). Also, if you require multiple treatments to get you ready for summer, winter is the perfect time to get started! Let’s get into the best winter beauty treatments you should be trying at CBB BLVD.
Many people experience pigmentation or hyperpigmentation as a a result of sun exposure or skin injuries such as acne. There are a number of treatments at our medi-clinic designed to remove pigmentation. While these treatments are perfectly fine at any time of the year, they are better as winter beauty treatments for one main reason – less sun exposure.
The winter sun is less intense due to a lower UV radiation index. We still experience beautiful sunny days here in Australia, however, most of us tend to spend a bit more time inside and showing less skin, therefore avoiding exposure to UV rays. Exposing our skin to sun in the high summer months, particularly after a pigmentation treatment can cause post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation.
Here are the top winter beauty treatments for pigmentation removal at CBB BLVD.
Cosmelan Depigmentation Treatment
This treatment by Mesoestetic is a professional four-phase depigmentation program including one in-clinic treatment and three home maintenance treatments. The Cosmelan method works to reduce dark spots such as freckles and hyperpigmentation, and restore luminosity to your skin. First, one of our dermal therapists will apply a depigmentation mask in our clinic. This treatment must stay on the face for eight to 12 hours before being removed at home. You must then follow an at-home application of the Cosmelan At Home pack for optimal results. This treatment also includes three LED Light Therapy to further enhance the results. Our Cosmelan in-clinic treatment will cause noticeable peeling, therefore it is best to avoid sun exposure as much as possible.
BBL Laser for Pigmentation
Whether it’s sun spots, freckles, melasma or hyperpigmentation, our BroadBand Light (BBL) laser treatment can restore your skin to its natural beauty. By delivering precise laser energy to a specific target on the skin (pigment from brown spots etc), our BBL laser heats the upper layers of the skin, destroying melanin-containing cells and stimulating your skin cells to regenerate collagen. Directly after your BBL treatment, you can expect the the pigmentation to darken. However, over the course of the next few weeks, these darkened spots will flake off, leaving you with a more even skin tone. Depending on the severity of your concerns, you may need multiple laser sessions to remove any pigmentation. During your initial consultation, we will analyse your skin and determine a treatment plan based on your needs! While it is best to avoid any sun exposure, if you do need to go out and about, make sure to use an SPF 50+.

There are many benefits of laser hair removal as a winter beauty treatment. Firstly, depending on the targeted areas, you may need multiple to see optimal results, so it is better to start this process in the cooler months and be hair-free by summer. Immediately after your treatment, it is also recommended that you avoid excessive sweating, exercise and swimming – much easier to achieve in the cooler months!
For the safest results, laser hair removal in winter is important to ensure your skin has not been exposed to the sun at least four weeks before your first treatment. Your hair can also take up to two weeks to fall out post-treatment, so your winter clothes are going to help you stay covered and shielded from the sun afterwards.
At CBB BLVD, our BBL Laser treatment can also be used to permanently reduce hair across the body. This winter beauty treatment works by sending a series of rapid pulses of lower-energy light to “kill” the hair follicle (without damaging the skin), preventing regrowth.

Chemical Peels are ideal for resurfacing the skin and lessening the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Our Jessner Peel is a mild to moderate chemical peel containing a mix of alpha- and beta-hydroxy acids that treat the upper layer of the dermis in a controlled manner. This treatment can be applied to the face, neck and chest, and works to increase the production of collagen to improve various skin conditions from wrinkles to sun-damaged skin.
Ideally, Chemical Peels are a preferred winter beauty treatment as they expose the deeper layers of the skin, meaning your skin is slightly more sensitive towards the UV rays and heat. The autumn and winter seasons are optimal for Chemical Peel recovery.
Have you heard the saying, “summer bodies are made in winter”? Body contouring treatments are the best way to eliminate stubborn areas of fat, reduce cellulite, and tighten and tone the skin. It can take a few sessions to eliminate these stubborn fat cells, so planning these beauty treatments ahead in the colder months will help you achieve your desired results in time for summer. We offer a number of body contouring treatments at CBB BLVD.
Fat Freezing, or Cryolipolysis, uses cold temperatures (below – 10 degrees) to destroy up to 20 to 30 percent of fat cells each treatment. Once the fat cells are destroyed, the body then breaks down the cells and flushes them out through the liver.
Our Onda Coolwaves treatment produces electromagnetic waves at a frequency of 2.45GHz to simultaneously target localised fat deposits and cellulite, while also promoting skin tightening for a three-in-one toning affect. Treatment time is roughly 10 minutes and is ideal for those looking to either tighten a specific area of the body, or focus on full-body toning.
The Slimyonik Air Styler is a state-of-the-art treatment that uses a half bodysuit covering the legs and stomach to simultaneously eliminate excess fluid, break down fat cells, fight water retention and flush the body of toxins.
