As the daily hours of sunlight start to fade and the temperatures begin to drop, many of us are starting to scrutinize the skin damage done by summer’s fun in the sun and perhaps a day or two when we didn’t prioritize the SPF. Add to that the fact that we maybe put our workouts on hold for a beach day and “forgot” to count calories at the last summer barbecue. All told, it would seem that the start of fall is the perfect time to get back on track, and what better way to do it than by investing in that custom aesthetic treatment you’ve been considering.
Summer vacations are behind us, the kids are back in school, we’re settling into our routines, and the weather—often cold, rainy, or windy—is made for repair and restoration.
While many non-surgical aesthetic treatments require little to no downtime, it’s often beneficial for skin to avoid direct sunlight following some treatments, as the targeted area may be photosensitive immediately following the session. With beach days behind us, fall routines often lead us to spend more time inside and those rare days we’re outside are often spent in longer layers, meaning skin isn’t exposed to the same degree of sunlight as it is during the hotter summer months. This helps to lower your risk for hyperpigmentation or brown spots due to sun exposure following an aesthetic treatment.
As well, sliding into a fall routine better allows for consistent appointments, making it the ideal season to book that consultation and start a new treatment series. Finally, as we prep for the holidays and a new year, it’s always a bonus to get a head start on holiday party beauty prep and New Year’s resolutions.
With these benefits in mind, what are the best aesthetic treatments to try this fall?
Fall is the ideal season to spend some time reaching your weight loss or body shaping goals. While the treatments can be a welcome and warm retreat from cooler temps and rainy days, the season’s warmer layers act to veil your transformation, as treatment plans generally require six to eight sessions to see optimal results. This leads to greater excitement once you finally reveal your stunning results, whether that’s in an elegant, body-hugging holiday gown or on a tropical vacation in the new year. Opting for a non-surgical radio frequency body shaping treatment plan in the fall allows for easier scheduling and a more personal weight loss journey.
Started noticing brown spots or redness from vascular marks? Increased UV exposure during the warmer months increases the risk for pigmentation from sun damage. With shorter days on the horizon and therefore fewer sunlit hours in the forecast, photofacial treatments are the perfect fall aesthetic treatment to reset skin and reduce signs of sun damage for healthier, younger-looking skin. And because these Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) photofacial treatments can make skin sensitive to sunlight immediately afterward, fall’s cloudier days and earlier sunsets help to protect skin and ensure improved results.
It is essential to begin a laser or IPL hair removal treatment program at a time when you can commit to regular treatments. Because laser and IPL hair removal treatments can only effectively target hair follicles in the growth phase, multiple treatments are needed to properly treat all hair follicles in the targeted area. Some laser hair removal treatments may also require you to skip out on tanning while being treated, making fall the perfect time to take a break from the bronzer and razor and opt for laser instead.
Obtain optimal results by combining aesthetic treatments for a customized treatment plan. Anti-aging skin tightening and body shaping treatments can be one such option to smoothen the silhouette, reduce the lumps and bumps of cellulite, and firm up loose skin to reach your unique body goals. Likewise, Venus Versa™ TriBella™ three-in-one complete facial treatments combine the benefits of photofacial, anti-aging, and skin resurfacing treatments into each session for improved skin tone, elasticity, and texture.
