Fall Into Flawless Skin

shutterstock_93090967Temperatures are dropping in North Texas, which means fall is slowly making its way across the state. All of Dallas-Fort Worth is getting ready for pumpkin spice everything, Cowboys football and the State Fair. Fall is also a perfect time for a chemical peel or other skin treatment from Innovations Medical Center.

Fall is an excellent time for skin rejuvenation for a few reasons. First and foremost, you probably caught a few rays this summer and may have forgotten sunscreen once or twice. As a result, you may have signs of sun damage, like sunspots and freckles. A skin rejuvenation procedure like Fraxel Laser can reverse these signs, leaving your skin tone even this season.

Timing your treatments in the fall also makes sense because the sun’s rays are not as strong during the latter part of the year. You also have a longer period to recover before the UV levels get to full strength again in the spring. This longer recovery time is beneficial for you because skin-rejuvenating treatments like chemical peels and many lasers slough off the outermost layers of the skin, leaving new skin that is tender and photosensitive.

This new skin is also very susceptible to sun damage, so it is important to stay out of the sun (or at least wear a sunscreen of 30 SPF or higher) until you fully heal.

Fall is also an ideal time for skin rejuvenation because you can have your procedure now and look great in time for upcoming holidays, get-togethers and family photos.

It’s important to remember that the air in the fall and winter is often drier than the air in the spring and summer, which means you’re going to need a lot more moisturizer. Also, while the sun’s rays are not as strong in the fall and winter months, they still have the potential to damage your skin. Select a sunscreen with a broad spectrum SPF 30 or higher to block out UV rays and ensure skin protection during the latter part of the year.
