Get Your Skin Glowing in Autumn
The weather is cooler, leaves are starting to turn color and pumpkin spice everything is calling your name. This is the perfect time to get started on undoing the damage caused to your skin during the fun summer months!
Here are the top procedures to schedule this Autumn:
These treatments are excellent for stimulating cell turnover, diminish fine lines and wrinkles, improving collagen production, diminishing dark spots and melasma. Medical grade chemical peels can improve acne, acne scars, melasma, sunspots, fine lines, stimulate collagen production, exfoliate dead skin and improve the texture of the skin. They are often applied weekly to every other week for several sessions, then monthly as an anti-aging maintenance therapy. Medical grade chemical peels can make a great improvement in the appearance and quality of the skin. They often result in an appealing youthful “glow” to the skin. Peels can be performed on face, neck, chest, decolletage, arms, hands, back, and legs. IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) – Fall is the perfect time to erase dark spots and sun damage caused during summer. IPL utilizes intense light to safely improve pigment issues on the skin. This versatile treatment can be used to treat a wide range of skin conditions, including sun damage, redness, brown spots, age spots, red capillaries and sun-induced freckles.
This powerful intense pulsed light treatment can be done on face, neck, décolletage, arms, hands, and legs. IPL also stimulates the production of collagen and elastin which plumps up the skin resulting in a fresher and more youthful appearance.
COLLAGEN INDUCTION THERAPY
One of the latest innovations in aesthetic medicine is collagen induction therapy or Micro-needling. This effectively utilizes minute medical grade sterile pins to lightly penetrate the skin in order to create a controlled micro-injury stimulating the self-repair mechanism of the skin. This treatment effectively stimulates collagen and elastin production resulting in smoother, firmer, and more youthful appearing skin. Topical hyaluronic acid, vitamin C or PRP – your own Platelet Rich Plasma – can be applied for optimal results. Areas commonly treated are face, neck and decolletage. Stay away from micro-needling rollers that will cause tearing of your skin and ensure that the treatment is performed by medical professional.
Sclerotherapy or injection therapy is the most effective and commonly used treatment for spider and reticular veins on the thighs and legs. Sclerotherapy utilizes injection of a sclerosing agent into the veins. This agent irritates the inner lining of the veins causing the veins to shrink in diameter and become much less visible.
