As we say goodbye to the summer months and hello to fall, you may find that your skin is in need of a little extra TLC. Luckily for you, fall is the perfect time of year to transform your complexion and prepare your skin for the season ahead.

Reverse Summer Sun Damage

Fall is an opportune time to reduce sun damage that you may have accrued over the summer. Textural irregularities, dark patches, pronounced sun spots, and fine lines are all signs of the unforgiving effects of the summer sun. While it exacerbates the aging process, the true harm of sun damage is that it also makes you more susceptible to developing skin cancer.

By being proactive, the effects of the sun can be minimized. Along with a dedicated skincare regimen, chemical peels, and laser treatments like Fraxel Dual® or Halo™ Hybrid Fractional Laser, we can help repair sun damaged skin and promote the growth of new, healthy skin.

A Season of New Beginnings

As the weather changes, it is not uncommon to find that your usual skincare routine is no longer effective. Luckily, you can help your skin adjust to the changing weather patterns by adopting a new skincare regimen. The early months of fall are a great time to make adjustments for the harsh weather that awaits us in the DC area. Plan ahead and introduce products as well as in-office treatments that will help keep your skin glowing by increasing hydration.

Don’t Forget Sun Protection

Some things are important all year long—like the sun’s ever-present and ever-damaging ultraviolet rays. Don’t be fooled by the cloud cover—while not as strong as in the summer, the sun’s UV rays are still damaging throughout the fall and winter. Make sure that you continue to apply a broad spectrum sunscreen daily.

Autumn is one of our favorite times of the year for reviving skin-healthy ways. Regardless of the time of year, our team of skincare specialists work alongside Dr. Tanzi and Dr. Shah to keep your skin healthy. We understand that, when it comes to addressing your skin, everyone has different needs. We look forward to helping you develop and maintain a fall forward skincare routine.
