Fall is just around the corner, and this is the perfect time to turn over a new leaf in your skincare routine, with some rejuvenation treatments. As the angle of the sun changes and the summer months fade into fall, now is the time to start thinking about skin rejuvenation treatments. We have a small break between fall and the holiday season, so it’s a perfect time to do one of those more aggressive in-office peels like a TCA or a Jessner or even opt for that Fractionated Laser Treatment you’ve been wanting. Keep in mind that most of those treatments require two weeks of peely, monstrous looking skin so make sure that you plan accordingly.
If you don’t have two weeks to hide from the world, weekly or bi-weekly at home exfoliation treatments are a great option. You’ll get a similar result as the in-office treatments but the results are cumulative, so they take more time to show. The trade off is no downtime.
Beauty Tools are an excellent way to rejuvenate the complexion at home and we have some great ones you will fall for! Starting with Michel Todd Beauty’s brand new Sonicsmooth Sonic Dermaplaning System , this is the hottest new device to launch in 2017. Dermaplaning is an increasingly popular medspa treatment that removes peach fuzz, unwanted facial hair while also exfoliating the skin. Michael Todd has combined it’s famous sonic technology with a specially designed Safety Edge so that you can skip the medspa fee to dermaplane at home around your schedule.
At home, micodermabrasian systems are also a great way to rejuvenate the complexion. Michael Todd’s Total Refresher combines Microderm and then micro-misting (calms the skin) in one device. When we asked celebrity aesthetician and beauty expert Erica Parker, which of the two she recommends, she suggested the Sonicsmooth. “Microderm is ideal for more youth skin types if used correctly; I prefer the Sonicsmooth for more mature skin types because of the lack of suction.”
Both of the techniques mentioned above to rejuvenate at home are “physical” methods of exfoliation. Clearing dead skin cells to brighten up the complexion can also be done with skincare formulas. Retin A is a favorite prescription topical that increases the rate of exfoliation. Although it works well, different forms of the popular topical formula utilize highly unstable Vitamin A. To stabilize companies offering Retin A and like products, strong chemical ingredients like parabens are often used.
At Michael Todd, we offer skincare formulas to exfoliate, brighten and rejuvenate the skin but without the harsh chemical preservatives. Our famous Pumpkin Enzyme Mask is a combination of Glycolic Acid and Pumpkin Enzymes to refresh the complexion deeply. It smells amazing and can be followed up with a moisturizer or a moisturizing mask like the Avocado Mango Mask.
So there you have some Fabulous Fall Skincare tips to "Fall" For!
