The 5 Best Autumnal Treatments
Fall weather brings with it shorter days and cooler weather, and while it may not be your favorite season, it does have certain advantages when it comes to aesthetic dermatology.
Celebrate the shifting seasons with a happy, healthy aging skin month. Here are a few of our favorite treatments to up your confidence — best-served cold.
Tighten Aging Skin With Morpheus 8
Morpheus 8 is a fractional skin treatment that stimulates collagen production in the underlying layers of the dermis. It combines microneedling and radiofrequency energy to remodel and contour the face and body. It improves skin tone and texture, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and tightens the skin. Spelled out simply? It addresses and corrects fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and skin laxity for a youthful look that will restore your glow.
Why take the plunge during the fall? With less sun exposure, the risk of post-treatment complications such as hyperpigmentation is minimized. The cooler weather also makes it more comfortable to undergo temporary redness and mild swelling, which can happen post-procedure.
Tone up With Skin Pen
Skin Pen is a type of microneedling procedure that uses a handheld device equipped with fine needles to create tiny punctures in the top layer of the skin. This process stimulates the body’s natural wound-healing process, resulting in increased collagen and elastin production. Skin Pen treatments improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, acne scars, and overall skin texture. It’s a workout for your skin!
Like Morpheus 8, Skin Pen treatments are more suited for the fall months due to reduced sun exposure. As the treatment can make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, undergoing the procedure during fall can help minimize the risk of sun damage and hyperpigmentation.
Reveal Radiance With Chemical Peels
Chemical peels involve the application of a chemical solution to the skin, which exfoliates the outer layers, revealing smoother, more evenly toned skin underneath. Different types of chemical peels can address various skin concerns, such as acne, hyperpigmentation, and uneven skin texture. Depending on the strength and intensity of the peel, your recovery time and results will vary.
Chemical peels are ideal during the fall as they can make the skin more sensitive to sunlight, and the reduced sun exposure during this season can help prevent potential complications. Additionally, treating sun-damaged skin during fall can help reverse some of the damage from the summer months. Consider it a win-win.
Self-Improve With Sculptra
Sculptra is an injectable treatment that stimulates the body’s natural collagen production, helping to restore facial volume and improve the appearance of wrinkles and folds over time. It is commonly used for enhancing facial contours, particularly in areas like the cheeks and temples. It works double duty, relaxing the appearance of wrinkles first and then reducing them with the help of collagen, revealing new, firm skin.
Sculptra treatment often involves multiple sessions, and starting the treatment in fall allows for the gradual enhancement of facial volume over the following months for a refreshed appearance just in time for the holiday season.
Stay Ahead of the Curve With Daxxify
Daxxify is an FDA-approved injectable that smooths moderate to severe wrinkles for up to six months. It’s the newest neuromodulator on the market and is taking the industry by storm — even upstaging its big sister, Botox. While it works the same, temporarily freezing the nerve and relaxing the injected muscle, Daxxify relies on a protein peptide which binds to the targeted facial nerves more tightly than other neuromodulators. This means longer-lasting results.
Like the other recommended treatments, Daxxify is beneficial during the fall months because of reduced sun exposure, allowing for a smoother recovery process.
