Fall Procedures You Should Be Booking Now

fall-proceduresDid you know that some procedures are better left done during the fall? Certain skin rejuvenation procedures explode in popularity during the fall months because excessive sun exposure can increase scarring, darken skin, irritate sensitive skin and even reverse the results of the procedures. It’s not just a well-known secret of celebrities and Hollywood actresses–doctors also advise limited sun exposure after a skin rejuvenation treatment. Want to beat all these starlets to the punch? Come and see which procedures the stars are rushing to book now, just in time for the fall.

IPL Photofacial

This treatment happens to be a favorite of Bond Girl Denise Richards. IPL is a great non-invasive treatment that uses intense pulses of light to reduce signs of aging, facial veins and capillaries, redness, and rosacea. The IPL treatment targets veins under the skin and other imperfections, and after around a week, these imperfections will slough off and your skin will regrow into glowing, newer, fresher skin.

How many sessions: for maximum effects, most patients get 3-6 treatments about 4-6 weeks apart.

How long will it take: super quick, about a half an hour.

Recovery: this treatment has minimal downtime and has no significant side effects.

Skin Tightening

Unfortunately, the neck can be an easy giveaway when it comes to aging. Kim Kardashian is famous for always chasing the fountain of youth, and she’s also a fan of using non-invasive laser skin tightening procedures for her neck. One of the best procedures for rejuvenating neck is Thermage, which uses radiofrequency to stimulate collagen production under the skin, creating a lifting and tightening effect.

Recovery: It’s non-invasive, so although there might be some slight swelling for a few days, there’s no downtime.

How many sessions: most patients only need one.

Results last for: your results will improve for up to 6 months then last for years.

How long will it take: only about 45 minutes.

Microdermabrasion

For women with complexions that are more prone to acne, microdermabrasion is a godsend. Cameron Diaz reportedly loves microdermabrasion, and there’s a lot to love: it uses an abrasive tool with tiny crystals to stimulate collagen production and remove the oils, dirt and bacteria that cause acne.

Recovery: the day after your procedure, your skin might feel sunburned, but it should go away soon enough.

How many sessions: how many sessions you need will depend on your skin, but you can get a series of treatments separated by 2-4 weeks.

How long will it take: about 30 minutes to an hour.

Chemical Peels

A personal favorite of Jennifer Aniston, chemical peels use a solution to blister and peel outer layers of skin to remove imperfections and reveal newer, younger skin.

How many sessions: it will depend on your skin, but they should be separated 2-4 weeks apart.

How long will it take: it might take more than an hour.

Recovery: the stronger the peel, longer your recovery.

These procedures are star favorites because they’re reliable, they work well, and they work fast. Want to find out what star treatment is like? Contact renowned dermatologists Abadir Associates now, to book these procedures in time for the fall.

Back to School and Back to Skin – Time to Repair Your Summer Skin

bak-to-skinWhen we think “summer skin,” we’re probably thinking about sun-kissed, bronzed, glowing skin. Unfortunately, that’s not always the case. Excessive sun damage that accumulated from sun exposure can lead to dry, flaky skin, sagging cheeks, sun spots, advance signs of aging, and even worse—sun burns and hyperpigmentation. If you’re headed back to school you might not be debuting a healthy glow, but rather, overly damaged skin. Want to get fresher, younger skin before heading back to class? Try these tips and treatments to get your skin back on track.

Say Hi to Pretty, with Permanent Makeup

Maybe you’re heading back to school and are dreading having to wake up so early in the morning to put on makeup. Maybe it’s physically very difficult for you to have to “put on your face” every single day. It’s possible that you might have developed darkening scars or skin discoloration from your time in excessive sunlight.

There a lot of reasons why you might want permanent makeup, but one thing’s for sure: it’s unbelievably convenient. Permanent makeup is basically a way to implant pigment on the outer layers of your skin, afterwards, you’ll get long-lasting eyeliner, brows, eyelash extensions, lip liner and lip color that won’t smudge off or wash away with water. Actress Bella Thorne recently got her eyebrows done with permanent makeup– and she loves it!

Say Goodbye to Scarring

Did you know that excessive sun exposure and sun burns can darken your scars, making them even more noticeable? It’s actually why a lot of plastic surgeons and dermatologists recommend reducing any kind of sun exposure after facial rejuvenation treatments or while a person is recovering from a facelift. Facial scarring is actually pretty common in a lot of people, and they usually exist as acne scars, trauma, burn marks, surgical scars, or chicken pox. For a lot of people, facial scarring can cause a lot of embarrassment and feelings of self-consciousness.

Want to get rid scarring or just reverse the effects of sun damage on scars? Try one of (or maybe even a combination of) these scar camouflaging treatments like excisional surgery, grafting, soft tissue augmentation, subcision, laser skin resurfacing, chemical peels, microdermabrasion and dermabrasion.

Dark Eye Circles

Dark eye circles—most people see them as remnants of sleepless nights stressing over tests, papers and assignments. Actually, healthy, relaxed people who’ve gotten lots of summer sleep can get dark eye circles for other reasons: allergies, genetically dark skin pigmentation, and yes, sun exposure. Although it’s not fair, dark eye circles will automatically make you look cranky and tired. Not exactly evidence of a fun, carefree summer. To help with dark eye circles, try a dermal filler like Restylane or Juvederm to create volume in thinning, sagging skin that create shadows underneath the eyes.

Summer usually means being out and about, but fall means going back to school and having to look your best all the time. Contact Abadir Associates now, for a consultation on the perfect skin treatment for you to try before fall.

Why Do I Still Have Acne?
