As professionals in skincare treatments, we always advise our patients to get professional advice this time of year to help their skin recover from the summer through this seasonal transition, keeping their complexion healthy during the upcoming holidays.
There are so many professional treatments available today. So, here is a list of the best facial treatments to try around this time of the year according to the weather conditions and time related:
1. Chemical Peel
What is chemical peeling? The process of applying a chemical solution to the skin to slough off dead skin cells, accelerate cell turnover and stimulate collagen production for smoother, brighter skin.
Who is the right person for the treatment? Anyone who wants to improve the overall health of their complexion. Depending on the strength of the peel—superficial, medium or deep—it can address many specific concerns from hyper pigmentation, acne, wrinkles or fine lines.
Why is it right for this season? This time of the year is ideal because we are less susceptible to complications that come with too much UV exposure during the post-care healing process.

How does it work? Before the peeling, your skin will need to be cleansed, then prepped with a solution typically to neutralize the pH levels of your complexion. All peels are slightly different; the professional will know what to use based on your skin needs and concerns, and the amount of the chemical peel that will be applied. After the peel, soothing products are applied to wrap up the treatment.
What is microdermabrasion? Is a procedure that removes the upper layers of the skin known as the stratum corneum using a diamond-tipped device to even tone and smooth texture, while stimulating collagen and elastin production to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles.
Who is the right person for this treatment? Everyone, it helps from reversing sun damage to smoothing and revitalizing the complexion.
Why is it right for this season? The removal of the outermost layers of the skin brings forth new skin, revitalizing summer-damaged skin.
How does it work? Microdermabrasion uses a diamond-tipped for areas that need more abrasive resurfacing or harder-to-reach areas and it is tailored to your skin’s concerns and needs.
3. Laser Treatments
What is a laser treatment? A procedure that directs short, concentrated pulsating beams of light to treat skin. It can treat pigmentation, age spots, acne, scarring and unwanted hair.
Who is the right person for this treatment? A person that wants to see fast results. And, for laser hair reduction, someone that has dark hair.

Why is it right for this season? Depending on the depth of the laser treatment, the healing time can be pretty lengthy with a laser facial and it is heavily advised to stay inside to avoid UV rays.
How does it work? Your skin is simply prepped and typically numbed before the laser treatment begins. After the treatment, an ointment (clinical-strength topical products that often the medi-spa makes) and icepack are applied depending on the level of laser.
