The 3 Best MedSpa Treatments For Autumn
Autumn is upon us, and you know what that means—pumpkin spice lattes, cozy sweaters, and a whole new set of skincare challenges. As the air gets crisp and the leaves start to fall, your skin may start to feel as dry as those crunchy leaves underfoot.
But don’t worry, we’ve got your back! Keep reading to find out the best medspa treatments for autumn that’ll have you glowing faster than you can say “trick or treat!”
Skin Hydration (Facials)
Let’s face it — as the seasons change, so does our skin. The cooler temperatures and lower humidity levels can lead to dry, flaky skin. But fear not!
MedSpa treatments like advanced facials can be a game-changer, not only tackling dry skin but also repairing sun damage and prepping your skin for the upcoming winter months.
Autumn winds can be harsh, leaving your skin parched; Hydration treatments like HydraFacial can help restore that lost moisture, giving you a plump, youthful look.
Hydration also comes with other benefits like:
- Immediate results
- No downtime
- Suitable for all skin types
Post-Treatment Care: Hydration treatments are generally gentle, but your skin will still need TLC. Continue to hydrate by drinking plenty of water and using a quality moisturizer that suits your skin type. Avoid harsh scrubs or exfoliants for a few days to let your skin soak up all the goodness.
Laser Hair Removal
Autumn is the perfect time to start this treatment because you’re generally less exposed to the sun, reducing the risk of complications.
Plus, it takes multiple sessions to see full results, so by the time summer rolls around again, you’ll be as smooth as a baby seal. Its benefits include:
- Long-lasting results
- Less painful than waxing
- No more razor burns
Post-Treatment Care: After your laser hair removal session, your skin might feel a bit sensitive. It’s crucial to avoid sun exposure for at least a week to prevent any complications.
Use a broad-spectrum SPF of at least 30 when you do go out. Also, skip the hot showers and opt for lukewarm water to avoid irritating the treated areas.
Chemical peels are fantastic for treating sun damage from those summer days spent at the beach. They remove the top layer of dead skin, revealing a fresh, new layer underneath.
This treatment comes with the following benefits:
- Reduces fine lines
- Treats sun damage
- Improves skin texture
Post-Treatment Care: Your skin will be sensitive after a chemical peel, so steer clear of the sun for a few days. Use a gentle, pH-balanced cleanser and avoid any products with alcohol or other irritants.
You might experience some peeling—don’t pick at it! Let it naturally slough off to reveal your new radiant skin.
Special Mention: Laser & Radiofrequency Skin Resurfacing
Laser and RF (Radio Frequency) skin resurfacing treatments are great options to give your post-summer skin some TLC, aiming to rejuvenate the skin by eliminating dead and damaged skin cells and stimulating collagen production.
Both laser and RF treatments work by delivering heat to targeted areas, causing controlled thermal microdamage that triggers the body’s natural healing process. This results in a more youthful complexion with visible reductions in sun damage, wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and other skin issues. Their advantages are:
- Convenient, non-surgical treatment that can take less than 20 minutes
- Smoother, more even skin tone
- Increased collagen production
- Reducing the appearance of stretch marks, acne scarring, and signs of aging
- Shrinking enlarged pores
- Providing a more youthful, glowing complexion
- Improved self-confidence
- Minimal downtime
Post-Treatment Care: After undergoing Laser or RF skin resurfacing, it’s crucial to keep the treated area moisturized. It’s also recommended to avoid direct sun exposure for a specified period — this is another reason Fall is the perfect time to embark on these treatments!
Following your chosen provider’s specific aftercare instructions, including the use of gentle skincare products and possibly antibiotic ointment, can help optimize results and minimize potential side effects.
Autumn is a season of change, so why not take this opportunity to refresh your skin care routine? With a variety of medspa treatments available, you can tackle issues like dry skin, sun damage, and more.
