Fall is here! Is there a better season? Pumpkin spiced lattes, pumpkin beer (an acquired taste for sure!), apple pies, Thanksgiving… All signs of fall. What perfect timing to begin the process of falling back in love with your skin!
Summer can be stressful because of changes in schedules, kids out of school, and maybe a bit too much sun. What to do? The sun causes 90% of our most common skin care concerns—aging and skin cancer. Now is the time to reinvest in your skin and have a full skin examination to make sure nothing has changed or there are no concerns.
Also, because the sun is less potent, it is a great time of year to treat the signs of sun over exposure—age spots, wrinkles, and increased pigmentation.
We do this with products such as sun-screen, antioxidants, and pigment treating medications.
My favorite products for this time of year are SkinCeuticals® Phloretin CF and Discoloration Defense with Physical Fusion SPF 50. The Glycolic 10 night moisturizer really provides a nice finishing touch to any fall treatment plan. We provide complimentary evaluations with our state of the art VISIA camera. Make an appointment today so we can take a look at your skin.
For a more transformative approach, we recommend procedures. Our Fraxel laser is the gold standard in anti-aging with 1-3 treatments taking off 10 plus years of aging. Spa services like microdermabrasion treatments, chemical peels, and hydrafacials provide an immediate texture change and allow your skin to return to its natural glow!
Let us help you fall back in love with your skin this fall. We want you to achieve better skin for a better life®.
