Another beautiful summer in Vancouver has come and gone. Patio lunches, seawall bike rides, and lounging at Third Beach may all seem like sweet distant memories. However, despite that the temperature has dropped and the days have grown shorter, there may be a few parts of summer that continue to linger…on your skin. That’s why Fall skincare treatments and products are critical for reversing those summer lovin’ days.
Even with the best physical sunscreen and an endless array of floppy hats, you may not have been able to completely dodge the after effects of harmful ultraviolet rays. So now that the tan has faded and you’ve traded swimsuits for wool scarves, the damage may be coming to the surface. However, not all is lost; the good news is that it’s not too late to do something about it.
From visible dark spots to rough patches on your skin, there are many ways that UV rays have wreaked havoc on your epidermis. Even if you can’t spot a few extra sun spots or moles, there are long-term effects that could haunt you later, as we know all too well how the sun can cause premature aging in the form of wrinkles, sagging skin, and fine lines.
The good news (yes, there’s more good news!) is that we offer a number of services that can combat these after effects. Here are Urban Body Laser’s favourite Fall skincare tips.
Best Fall Skincare Treatments
Don’t be intimidated by the name. This amazing treatment helps with product absorption as well as increases collagen, elastin, and circulation to your skin by providing tiny punctures to epidermis. These “micro-injuries” tell your brain to kick into repair mode, prompting more collagen to be produced and repair any damaged areas.
Whether you come to Urban Body Laser for treatments or we set you up with an at-home regime, this is an excellent post-summer treatment when paired with high quality skin care because it allows for better absorption of nutrients.
Are you noticing new liver spots? Fine lines? Unwanted freckles?
Then we highly recommend booking Photorejuvenation treatments. It uses light (in a good way) to repair and revive your skin. Non-invasive and highly effective, these can be done over your lunch hour. After a series of treatments, you’ll notice a significant reduction of unwanted pigmentation and the appearance of smoother, revitalized skin.
You know that feeling after you’ve just vacuumed your living room, or dusted your home? All of those micro particles are gone, revealing the true nature of your surfaces and leaving a sparkling finish.
Well, your skin is no different. It too needs a little help to remove the built-up waste, dust, and outdoor elements that prevent its true beauty from shining through. Enter Microdermabrasion. Compared to the texture of your cat’s tongue, this treatment is a favourite of celebs like Gwenyth Paltrow and Kim Kardashian, and gently removes the outer layer of the epidermis, stimulates collagen and elastin production, and improves blood flow for firmer, healthier looking skin.
