Fall is here, and we are ready for cozy sweaters and pumpkin-spiced everything. But even though you might start covering up more this time of year, it may just be the perfect time to consider cosmetic treatments.
Why fall is a Good Time to get Cosmetic Treatments
Some treatments require that you stay out of the sun for a period of time following your appointment. For that reason, spring and summer aren’t ideal for those types of treatments.
Another reason that fall or even winter is a good time for treatments is that often times results are not immediate. It takes your body time to respond to treatment, or multiple sessions are needed to get optimal results. Therefore, choosing treatments during the fall and winter means full results when it’s time to bare your skin in warmer weather.
Our Favorite Fall MedSpa Treatments
Spider Vein Treatments
One option for spider vein treatments is laser therapy. Expertly guided lasers are used to precisely target visible veins. The energy from the laser causes coagulation of the blood inside these veins. After a short time, the vein dies and is reabsorbed into the body, fading away.
Injections are available which will successfully treat varicose veins in many areas of the body. A carefully formulated solution is injected into the veins with a very fine needle. The injected solution causes the unwanted vein to break down and eventually become reabsorbed by the body.
Fall is a great time to get vein treatments. Laser treatments, in particular, require you to avoid sun exposure. In addition, results take a few weeks to several months to appear after receiving injections or laser treatments. Your individual treatment plan may call for multiple sessions spaced 3-4 weeks apart or longer. Starting your treatment in the fall means that by spring, you will see your full results.
A vampire facial is an on-trend treatment combination of PRP and Microneedling that improves skin from the inside out.
First, during Microneedling treatment, extremely tiny needles stamp the surface of the skin. This treatment stimulates the body’s natural healing ability and creates tiny channels for PRP to penetrate deeper into skin. Platelet-rich plasma (a substance that is quickly derived from your blood) is applied to the treatment area. PRP is concentrated with natural growth factors that promote cell regeneration and healing.
Not only is fall a fun time to try this treatment, but your results will begin to appear just in time for the holidays. You should see results from a PRP Facial after just a couple of weeks, but your maximum results will appear (and even continue to improve) after a few months.
Chemical peels are an affordable way to get fast results. Peels can target acne scars, improve skin tone, reduce sun spots, smooth fine lines, and generally improve the appearance of your skin. Treatment can be individualized to meet your needs.
The mechanism behind a chemical peel is to deeply exfoliate the skin, removing outer layers of dead and damaged cells and promoting new cells and a fresh glow. Immediately after a chemical peel, however, skin can be quite sensitive. We suggest you avoid sun exposure for several days as you will be susceptible to burning. This makes fall a great time for a chemical peel!
Tribella is a multifaceted skin resurfacing treatment that improves hyperpigmentation, smooths lines, and tightens skin. This treatment combines intense pulsed light, multi-polar radio frequency, and Pulsed Electro MagnetifFields. While TriBella is mostly downtime-free, patients should avoid sun exposure for several days. You will see results in a few months, just in time for your holiday get-togethers!
