Get Kardashian-Worthy Skin this Fall

fall-skinKim Kardashian recently revealed her morning skincare routine, and it costs over $1200! With summer almost over, you may need to think about changing up your skincare routine. Maybe not on a “Kim level,” but you definitely need to take care of any skin damage you might’ve accumulate during the summer. You also need to transition your skincare regiment to fit in with the fall season; so let’s take look at some ways to get your skin autumn ready and “Kardashian worthy.”

Repair and Recover

Are you thinking about fixing all the sun damage you got from frolicking in the sun? Try the IPL Photo-Facial, a skin rejuvenation device that uses controlled light fix to brown spots, sun spots, age spots, facial veins and unsightly broken capillaries. It’s perfect for the fall because it’s highly recommended that you limit your sun exposure before and after IPL Photofacials. Photofacials work better on fairer skin anyways, and their results turn out so much better if you’re not getting excessive sun exposure during your recovery.

Moisturize Your Skin

You might think, “Now that summer’s over I can start healing from the dry flaky skin I got from sun damage.” Unfortunately, you’ll only find cold, brisk wind and extremely dry climates during fall and winter—the perfect conditions for dry skin. Want a solution? Try a chemical peel. A chemical peel will chemically slough off your outer layer skin to reveal a new layer of skin underneath. Not only will your face look younger and fresher, but a lot of chemical peels come with a hydrating masque to provide that extra form of moisturizing power.

Find Your Freshest Skin

If you think that exfoliation will make your dry skin even dryer, think again. If your skin is screaming for water, then dermabrasion can help take away dry skin beyond repair to reveal fresher, younger skin. Dermabrasion physically removes the outer-most layer of skin along with acne scars, lesions, wrinkles, and more. After that, your body will heal itself by growing cleaner, moisturized, and younger-looking skin.

Hydrafacial

If you’re extra serious about moisturizing your skin, try the Hydrafacial, a multi-step procedure that uses a chemical peel, extractions, antioxidants, peptides, hyaluronic moisturizers, serums, and more to hydrate and refresh your skin. After that, you’ll be provided with more skincare serums to take home so you can maintain your skincare regimen throughout the fall.

Transitioning into fall involves more than getting excited for pumpkin-spice flavored everything. You also need to change up your skin care routine; and that involves a visit to some of the best dermatologists in the country.

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.

Treatments for Two Weeks Before Your Reunion

Juvederm

You want your new self to look effortless, but with this easy treatment it really might be. Juvederm is an injectable, meaning it’s injected into the skin to smooth out wrinkles, creases, and create volume in the face. It’s also used to plump lips and fill in sagging areas of the face and eye sockets.

Procedure: You will get a series of injections of the solution, which will be done after around 10 minutes.

Recovery: You might see some swelling for up to two weeks.

Lasts: for about 6 months.

Botox & Dysport

Botox & Dysport are some of the quickest, safest, and most popular ways to get rid of expression lines and deep wrinkles.

Procedure: It’s only a series of small injections, which should be done in less than 10 minutes

Recovery: Almost none

Lasts: 2-4 months

Treatments for a Month Before Your Reunion

IPL Photofacial

Here’s the light side to laser skin treatments: IPL uses pulses of light to treat brown spots, facial veins and capillaries, redness, rosacea and signs of aging.

Procedure: Depending on your type of skin, a series of sessions 2-4 weeks apart is recommended.

Recovery: There is no downtime, but if you do get residual redness it may last for up to a week after treatment.

Treatments for Two Months Before Your Reunion

Sometimes you want your newer, younger skin to be entirely yours. No worries, there a lot of skin rejuvenation procedures that renew the skin using the body’s natural healing mechanisms.

Dermabrasion

Dermabrasion works by physically removing outer layers of skin along with dead skin, oils, and other imperfections. When the skin grows back, you’ll notice improvements in your acne scars, wrinkles, chicken pox scars, lesions and so much more.

Procedure: You will be given a numbing agent or anesthesia to help with any kind of discomfort. Then a device combined with a freezing technique will work on one small area at a time

Recovery: After 7-14 days your wounds should fully heal and after 6 weeks any residual redness should be gone.

Chemical Peels

Chemical Peels work similarly to dermabrasion, but instead, it uses chemicals to blister and peel the outer layers of skin. Chemical peels can improve skin tone, reduce wrinkles, acne scars, and signs of sun damage. There are actually a wide variety of chemical peels:

  • Micropeels: perfect for mild skin conditions like hyperpigmentation.
  • Dermaplaning: couple this with a light peel to create glowing skin and remove annoying peach fuzz.
  • Facial with Light Chemical Peel: make sure your skin is hydrated with this combo facial and light peel.
  • Acne Clearing Facial: made specially to help with acne and acne scars.

Recovery: Your skin will feel like it’s been sunburned for a few days, and the stronger the peel, the longer your recovery.

After these treatments, your high school reunion photos will look like a high school graduation. These treatments and more will be available to you at Abadir Associates, so contact them now for a consultation.
