The Top 3 Aesthetic Treatments for Fall


The Top 3 Aesthetic Treatments for Fall

The leaves are changing colors and there’s a crisp breeze in the air, signaling that fall is on its way! It’s time to think about how to reinvigorate, beautify and energize your skin for the new season. To help you put your best face forward in the coming months, we are highlighting Coastal Aesthetics’ top 3 aesthetic treatments for fall.

Before springing into fall, let’s revisit what your skin endured during the summer months. Undoubtedly, you had a blast frolicking in the sun, perhaps relaxing at the beach, chilling poolside, or hiking in the mountains. Either way, your skin probably got more than its share of sun. Even if you slather on sunscreen and wear protective eyewear and clothing, it’s hard for your skin to fully escape the sun’s harsh effects.

That’s why we recommend sun damage repairing treatments like chemical peels, Dye VL, and hybrid lasers. Now it’s easy to improve signs of sun damage without pain or downtown. Plus, the results are simply stunning. Here are our top 3 Aesthetic Treatments for Fall!


Sun Damage Repair Treatments

Chemical Peels

You’ve probably heard of the tried-and-true “chemical peel,” a treatment that reduces imperfections on the face, like wrinkles, fine lines, sun spots, acne scars, slight discoloration, and overall dullness. Chemical peels improve the skin’s texture by lifting away the upper layer of dead skin cells to give you a youthful glow.

The most important aspect of the chemical peel is that it is performed by a trained medical professional like our team of practitioners at Coastal Aesthetics. Since peels rely on chemicals like glycolic, trichloroacetic, salicylic, lactic, or carbolic acids (phenol), you want an experienced practitioner to oversee the process from beginning to end to ensure optimal results for your specific skin type. 


Laser Treatments for Sun Damage

Coastal Aesthetics offers other skin-perfecting treatments that utilize the most advanced laser therapy techniques to improve sun damage, like Dye VL and Alma Hybrid. Both are easy, painless, and safe, yielding dramatic results just in time for a flawless fall. You and your provider will develop a treatment plan, especially for your skin goals with laser treatments. Depending on your goals and skin condition, you may need multiple visits, typical of laser treatments.


Dye VL for Red Discoloration

Dye VL effectively removes sun-damaged skin or discoloration that is reddish in tone, like rosacea. Dye VL uses a pulsed dye laser device that gives off a bright light. The light pulse is absorbed by abnormal blood vessels without damaging the surrounding skin. In time, any redness in the skin practically disappears, revealing beautiful skin.

It’s easy and convenient to treat sun damage with Dye VL because numbing isn’t required, and a session typically lasts 30 minutes. First, your practitioner will cleanse your skin, give you some nifty protective eyewear, and then apply a cooling gel while the wand delivers small light pulses. After treatment, the sun damage pigmentation will become darker, and the spots will fade away, giving you a lovely, even skin tone.


Reveal Your Skin’s Glow with Alma Hybrid

Coastal Aesthetics is pleased to offer the latest sun damage treatment, Alma Hybrid. This laser treatment vaporizes aging skin tissue, replacing damaged and dull cells with radiant, glowing skin. It’s the perfect fall skin treat for mom (or dad!).

In addition to sun damage, Alma Hybrid improves the overall texture of your skin by improving wrinkles, fine lines, and uneven skin tone. This cutting-edge technology combines an ablative CO2 laser, a non-ablative 1570nm laser, and ultrasound technology to deliver optimal results and perfectly address all sorts of skin imperfections! 


Laser Hair Removal

Remember the days of beaches and bathing suits? Oh, what fun, but didn’t you grow tired of the arduous process of shaving your legs, bikini area, and underarms? Sure, that first shave with a brand-new razor leaves your skin silky soft, but it’s not easy to achieve those results every time. And being in the bright sunlight, you may have noticed a few hairs in places you’ve never seen before, like on your chin–eek! That’s why laser hair removal is a top aesthetic treatment for fall.

Laser hair removal has become a popular treatment because it requires zero downtime, and the results are as close to permanent as possible. Yes, you may eventually see some hair regrowth months or years later, but the hair will be finer and lighter. And any regrowth is easy to manage. 


How Laser Hair Removal Works

The laser hair removal process is done in phases because you must wait for your hair growth cycles, typically occurring every 3-4 weeks. It takes a few months to complete, so if you want to be silky smooth for fall –think holiday parties too! — it’s time to book your consultation now.

During laser hair removal, a laser vacuum is placed directly on top of the skin where the hair resides to draw the skin into the handheld piece of equipment. The device pulls the skin thin, so the laser energy (heat) source can target the melanin in the hair. And, you don’t have to worry about discomfort from the heat because the treatment has a cooling feature that occurs during the laser pulses. When the hair follicles absorb the heat, they become damaged, making it harder for hair to grow back. 


Skin Tightening 

Since the fall season brings lots of fun activities, your calendar may quickly fill up with a variety of outings. Coastal Aesthetics has a variety of treatments to enhance your skin and give it a tighter, more taut appearance, like Opus Plasma, Alma Hybrid, and microneedling (SkinPen). 


Opus Plasma

Like the Alma Hybrid, Opus Plasma is a new skin rejuvenation treatment ideal for treating sun damage. Opus Plasma has emerged as a frontrunner when treating sun damage, uneven skin tone, texture, scars, and skin laxity. In addition, it’s the first and only unipolar radiofrequency treatment. So if you’re looking for a fabulous fall treat, say “yes” to Opus Plasma.

Opus Plasma is very similar to laser treatments because your practitioner will use a small, handheld device, but this device emits electrical plasma energy. This energy stimulates collagen creation, which makes your skin look more youthful by easing fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation. Most patients notice the improvements they’re seeking after only one session.


Glow with SkinPen

If the term microneedling sounds scary, have no fear! It’s a comfortable treatment option to revitalize the skin, so it’s soft and supple. SkinPen has such great results; it’s almost like your skin is lit-from-within with an undeniable youthful glow.

The SkinPen is a small handheld device and feels similar to a laser treatment. Your practitioner will apply a gel during the quick procedure, making the treatment more comfortable. The SkinPen uses tiny, thin needles that make microscopic holes in the top layer of your skin. The controlled damage stimulates your skin’s healing process, producing more collagen and elastin. As a result, patients will notice firm, smooth skin and an improvement in skin texture for months.

No matter which treatment you choose, Coastal Aesthetics will help you step into fall with your best face forward.
