Choosing Your Fall Laser Skin Care Routine

If you know anyone who gets laser facials, you know they work. But did you know there is a prime time of year for some skincare treatments? As the sunny, warm weather turns cool and crisp, it’s time to swap out more than your tees for sweaters. Fall is the perfect time to implement laser facial treatments into your regimen.


Laser treatments are incredibly effective at rejuvenating your skin, but as it heals, your skin may be more sensitive. This is normal, and because of it, autumn is known by many as laser season. In the fall, the intensity of the sun decreases, making it a more comfortable environment to recover from a laser facial.

Cooler temperatures will feel soothing as opposed to warm weather, amplifying sensitivity as you sweat. Plus, reducing your sun exposure minimizes the risk of adverse reactions like hyperpigmentation or uneven skin tone. Give your skin the reset it deserves with a laser facial!

Fall is the Best Time for Laser Facials – Find the Right Laser Treatment for You

As one of the most popular skin pampering treatments, it only makes sense that there are so many laser facial benefits. Depending on your specific skin concerns, you can choose from several treatments to find the right solution.

While the choice can seem overwhelming (there are a lot of laser facials out there!), it doesn’t have to be. The right med spa team will help you narrow down the options, working with your goals, timeline, and budget to create the perfect treatment plan. To start, let’s go through some of the laser treatments that our Baltimore area patients choose time and again for noticeable complexion improvements.

MOXI Laser Reverses the Signs of Aging

MOXI is a non-ablative laser that does not wound the skin, meaning it takes significantly less time to heal. Using microscopic laser energy, MOXI gently refreshes the skin’s surface to:

Unlike most laser treatments that only work well with lighter skin tones and darker hair pigment, MOXI works with all skin types. It’s meant to correct the first signs of aging and sun damage, helping you keep your youthful appearance.

MOXI Results & Aftercare

One thing that patients love about MOXI laser is that results start to show almost instantly. Though more dramatic results can be seen after a series of sessions, a single treatment is enough to improve. Every following session builds on the last, helping you consistently maintain smooth and firm skin.

Some changes will happen in the hours, days, and weeks after treatment. Be sure to follow the proper MOXI Laser aftercare recommendations, from the best way to cleanse your skin to what you should avoid doing. This ensures that you have the best possible results.

Thankfully, recovery time after MOXI is very quick. Since it’s non-invasive, it won’t take long before you heal fully – most patients stop seeing red or pink skin after three or four days.

Is MOXI Better Than BBL?

MOXI Laser and BBL Photofacial help patients reach different goals, which means that one is not necessarily better. Have you heard of prejuvenation? MOXI focuses on preventing the signs of aging, so instead of rejuvenating your skin, you’re ‘prejuvenating’ it. Unlike other laser treatments, MOXI is gentle enough to easily be a year-round option.

While MOXI promotes healthy skin overall, BBL Photofacial helps with existing conditions.

Reverse Summer Sun Damage with BBL HERO Photofacial

Sometimes, we can’t stay ahead of skin concerns, and that’s where BBL HERO comes in for most skin types. Patients can treat freckles, age spots, and cherry angiomas with broadband light (BBL) therapy.
Your treatment plan depends entirely on whether you want to correct a skin condition or receive ongoing skin care. Best of all, you are able to resume regular activities immediately after your appointment since there is no heavy downtime.

Visible results are seen after only one or two treatments, unlike other techniques such as IPL (intense pulsed light), which typically require five or six appointments. You’ll first notice minor improvements. Within the first couple of weeks, blemishes and blood vessels are clearing up. Then, you’ll start to see and feel smoother skin that’s more even and bright.

How Long Do BBL Photofacial Results Last?

The exciting thing about a BBL Photofacial is that you are in control of how long your results last. One or two treatments will give you visible results for at least a few months. Receiving a few BBL Photofacials a year will give the impression that you are aging backward. You’ll see consistent results and can work with your provider to maintain them for years to come.

Combining MOXI and BBL HERO

Since each treatment focuses on a different goal for patients, many choose to combine MOXI laser and BBL Photofacial to maximize results. When done correctly, patients see softer lines, brighter skin, smaller pores, and better texture (to name a few).

It’s very common for patients to combine these laser face treatments because of how well they work together. And yes, a trained and experienced provider can administer both MOXI and BBL during the same appointment without damaging the skin. Your provider will determine the right amount of each laser treatment that will help you reach your goals and what the best timeline will be.

Skincare Tips at Home to Winterize Your Routine

Cooler temperatures can dry the skin, bringing irritation and sensitivity that are difficult to soothe. In between your laser face treatments, there are steps you can take at home to refresh your routine before winter, including:

Adding Retinol

If your face has a buildup of debris and dead skin cells, it can dry out a lot easier. Retinol helps exfoliate the skin, unclogging pores and smoothing the surface. Not only does this provide a better surface for moisturizers to soak in fully, but it also diminishes the appearance of hyperpigmentation and treats wrinkles.

Try adding a retinol cream to your routine that stimulates collagen production and cellular turnover.

Wearing Sunscreen

A daily broad-spectrum sunscreen, even in winter when the sun doesn’t feel overly strong is essential for healthy skin. Your sun exposure builds on itself over time, so it might not seem as important to wear sunscreen in winter, but it all adds up.

Apply at least a 15 SPF (if not 30), and try to find a mineral sunscreen that contains healthier ingredients. You can combine efforts by finding a cream with SPF and retinol to make things even easier as you improve your skincare routine.

Healing Your Body From the Inside

It can be easy to forget, but hydrating is one of the easiest ways to help keep your skin supple and avoid drying out so quickly. By drinking lots of water throughout the day, consistently, not only will your skin feel better, but your entire body.

It’s also important to consume the right nutrients that keep skin cells healthy, including foods high in antioxidants such as:

  • tomatoes,
  • berries,
  • spinach,
  • dark chocolate
  • foods with plenty of Omega-3 fatty acids. These can be different types of fish and nuts. Supplements are also a good option for nutrients that your body needs.

Of course, skincare is not a one-size-fits-all. Instead of changing your entire regimen, test out small adjustments to see how your skin responds. For example, while some people benefit from swapping out their gel moisturizer for a heavier cream when the weather turns cold, others are better off using both for extra hydration. Find what works best for you, and stick with it.

How Is AviClear Changing the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Acne?

How Is AviClear Changing the Treatment of Moderate to Severe Acne?

Tired of dealing with mild to severe acne? Look no further—AviClear is revolutionizing the way we achieve clear, radiant skin. Dermatology Laser Center and Medispa in Baltimore, MD is excited to offer this cutting-edge treatment to our patients for a faster and more efficient solution to their acne concerns. Discover how AviClear works, what you can expect from the treatment, and how to get the most out of it.

How Does AviClear Acne Treatment Work?

AviClear is a unique laser treatment that can clear up your blemishes. It’s the only one of its kind that has been FDA-approved. Best of all, you don’t need a prescription. It’s safe for all skin types and colors. After three 30-minute sessions, you’ll start noticing an impressive change in your skin within a few months.

This innovative acne treatment’s laser sends a beam of energy to the sebaceous gland. This is the part of your skin that produces oil. When this oil mixes with dead skin cells, it can clog your pores and cause pimples. AviClear stops the gland from making too much oil, so you won’t get as many pimples in the first place.

Why Choose AviClear Over Other Acne Treatments?

Unlike other treatments that rely on drugs and chemicals, AviClear uses a gentle laser technology that’s easy on the skin. It’s pain-free and provides long-lasting results that will leave you with a luminous complexion.

A common concern people have with other acne treatments is experiencing bad breakouts before achieving clear skin. This is also known as “skin purging.” Many patients have expressed feeling embarrassed about this, and seek an effective alternative without going through the awkward phase. AviClear is that solution. When paired with a robust skincare routine, it can help you achieve a healthy glow for years to come.

Does the Procedure Hurt?

Patients don’t feel much discomfort with AviClear. Its cooling feature, AviCool, keeps your skin cool during the treatment. At most, you might feel a slight snapping sensation as the laser works its magic.

What Can I Expect After AviClear?

AviClear doesn’t have significant side effects like other acne treatments do. You can achieve flawless skin without dealing with pain, flare-ups before improvement, or flaking skin.

Curious about what your face will look like after AviClear? Check out our patients’ before and after photos. Those starting with persistent acne finally see clearer, smoother skin. Many of our female clients love that they can flaunt their natural beauty without wearing as much makeup after the treatment.

When Will I See the Results?*

Most of our patients see stunning results about four to twelve weeks after their final treatment session. But like any medical and cosmetic treatment, results vary per person.* Everyone’s body reacts to AviClear differently, so you may notice changes sooner or later than the average time frame.

Does AviClear Get Rid of Acne Scars?

AviClear isn’t a treatment for acne scars specifically, but it can reduce inflammation. This helps make the redness of acne marks less noticeable. After your AviClear treatment, you may consider a microdermabrasion facial treatment to further diminish acne scars.

Are Aviclear's Results Permanent?

AviClear’s effects are long-lasting. Patients enjoy clear skin for about two years before needing to possibly return for follow-up appointments. Again, each person’s experience is unique. There are many factors at play, like hormones and lifestyle factors. You may or may not need to come back depending on how your body reacts to AviClear.

How Much Does AviClear Cost in Baltimore?

Comprehensive AviClear treatment can cost anywhere from $3,000 to $5,000 or more. The exact cost varies depending on your unique treatment plan and skin needs. Current or ongoing promotions and special discounts may make the treatment more affordable.

Find out how much AviClear will cost you by scheduling a free initial consultation with Dermatology Laser Center and Medispa. Our specialists will evaluate your skin condition and learn about your cosmetic concerns. From there, we can put together an effective treatment plan that suits your needs within your budget.

What Is AviClear's Aftercare Like?

AviClear has minimal downtime, which means you can resume your daily activities after each treatment. Assuming you already have a solid skincare regimen, you shouldn’t need to change your routine. During your consultation, we’ll go over what you’re using and may make recommendations for changes if needed.

What Can I Do to Maintain Clear Skin?

Besides following your AviClear treatment plan, you must avoid popping pimples during the process. Doing so can lead to scarring and hamper healing.

We recommend the following practices to maintain clear skin:

  •  Wash your face twice a day
  •  Rinse your face after sweating
  •  Avoid touching your face
  •  Always apply sunscreen, even when it’s cloudy out
  •  Use gentle, clean skincare products
  •  Stay hydrated with clear fluids
  •  Eat well-balanced meals
  •  Apply natural makeup products
  •  Get enough sleep
  •  Minimize stress
  •  Keep hair out of the face

Is AviClear Right for Me?

AviClear can help with all types of acne, whether it’s mild, moderate, or severe. Patients with hormonal, cystic, and/or inflammatory breakouts have come to us for AviClear acne treatment.

In other words, virtually anyone with acne, regardless of age, can get AviClear. The laser will diminish your current pimples and prevent new ones from forming. Say goodbye to pesky blemishes and hello to a smooth, refreshed complexion!
