Fall is in the air! Finally! The snowbirds are returning. Restaurants are getting busier and everyone’s calendars are starting to fill up with parties and events. This is the time of year that most people really start to think about doing a little “sprucing up” regarding their appearance. And there are many ways to go about it.
Fall is a great time of year to do a chemical peel. The sun isn’t quite as hot and the weather has cooled to be much more comfortable. I recommend a medium depth, medical grade chemical peel about once per year as part of a good skin care regimen. “Cleaning up” the surface of the skin evens out tone, erases those dark spots from too much sun exposure and helps the skin care products you are using to do a better job. This type of peel takes a full 7 days to complete, with the most dramatic peeling and flaking on the third and fourth days. Wednesday is a great day to do a peel so that you can peel the most over the weekend!
Smoothing out those wrinkles on the forehead or treating those pesky crow’s feet with Botox is another great option. Botox works in about 3 – 5 days and then the frown lines relax away after about a week. So if you are trying to get ready for a party or special occasion – be sure to give yourself at least a week.
Of course, there are lots of other treatment options (including facial fillers, great skin care products, Latisse for longer eyelashes and surgical procedures for face, breast and body). As we enter the cooler season, it’s a great time to consider what you might like to do for yourself.
