4 Best Treatments To Try This Fall
Every season has its pros and cons and autumn is no different. While the cooler weather is welcome by some and not by others, the shorter days do have perks when it comes to aesthetic treatments to atone for the dwindling sun. Fall in love with our 4 favorite treatments that are perfect for the changing weather and will help you feel like the best version of you!
Your Top Fall Treatments? Fraxel®, HydraFacial®, VI Peel, Laser Hair Removal. Here’s why you should treat yourself to one or all this October — no tricks, we promise.
Fraxel® is a resurfacing treatment that transforms your skin using laser technology: The fractional laser works to create thousands of microscopic treatment zones in the upper layers of the skin. Fraxel® is the first non-ablative fractional skin resurfacing treatment which means Fraxel® works by heating the skin without injuring the surface of the skin itself — leaving your skin’s tone and texture visibly improved without pain or discomfort.
However, because it’s a laser treatment, Fraxel® requires you to avoid the sun post-procedure as your skin will be extra sensitive. With less daylight and necessary layers to cover up October is the perfect time to try a Fraxel® treatment.
There’s never a wrong time for a HydraFacial®, but the shift into cooler weather likely has your skin feeling a bit confused. A revolutionary treatment that takes hydration to the next level, the HydraFacial® is a great way to infuse intense moisture into your skin during a time in the year when it is sure to be thirsty.
The HydraFacial® has gained popularity for its quick, efficient pampering that leaves the skin feeling totally refreshed. In just three steps and thirty minutes, the HydraFacia®l cleanses, exfoliates, and nourishes the skin, and can even be tailored to address your specific skin concerns, making this a must-have treatment for any skin type.
Chemical peels are a great way to refresh your skin and force cell turnover and October is the perfect time to try out a versatile VI Peel that treats the signs of aging as well as unwanted pigmentation, redness and of course, sun damage.
The VI Peel works by micro-damaging the outermost layer of skin, causing it to peel off while stimulating new tissue growth. The medium-level peel is gentle enough for use on the face, chest, eyelids, hands, and back —aka anywhere with skin damage is treatable, making it the perfect option following up months spent in the summer sun. Consider the VI Peel a “welcome fall” gift.
Laser Hair Removal
One of the most mainstream aesthetic treatments we offer, laser hair removal works by sending a laser through the pigment in the hair. The light from the hair converts to heat and permanently damages the hair follicle making it difficult for further growth. While the process works, it takes two or three weeks after your first treatment to see a difference and up to 12 treatments to see the full result (pending the treatment area).
Similar to Fraxel, the use of lasers means your skin will be extra sensitive. Since a completed laser hair removal process can take months, starting now is a great way to get ahead for next summer when your skin will be more exposed to the sun’s harmful rays.
