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.

Laser Facial Benefits

How Laser Skin Resurfacing Takes Skincare to a New Level

There are so many laser treatments available, all of which help target different concerns. A laser facial, also known as laser skin resurfacing, is a non-surgical treatment for facial rejuvenation. Using sophisticated laser technology, this facial reduces the signs of aging, improves blemishes, and reinvigorates your appearance with a healthier, more radiant complexion. It also evens skin pigmentation, tightens skin, and removes lesions. 

Read on to learn more about laser facials, including the options you have, and all the benefits they bring to determine if laser skin resurfacing is right for you.


There are a variety of cosmetic lasers meant to target all sorts of issues. They vary in wavelength and intensity. Different wavelengths are utilized to treat various skin concerns. And different intensities penetrate the skin at different depths. More robust lasers penetrate deeper and deliver more dramatic results. They are also more invasive than gentler lasers.

For example, fractional lasers are non-invasive, targeting a fraction of the skin’s surface at one time while non-fractionated lasers treat the entire surface. Non-ablative lasers don’t damage the outer layer of your skin, while ablative lasers remove the top layer of skin to help with deeper issues.

Some of the popular types of lasers include:

  • XTRAC laser for many forms of psoriasis
  • MOXI Laser for skin rejuvenation
  • CO2 Lasers for more profound skin flaws

At  Dermatology Laser Center and Medispa, we use only the most advanced cosmetic technologies. This includes the eMatrix Sublative Rejuvenation laser system. Sublative lasers help stimulate collagen production for better elasticity within the skin. This brings tighter, smoother skin that appears brighter.

Do Laser Facials Hurt?

The most patients typically report feeling from a laser facial is that of a rubber band snapping against the skin. It’s quite minimal discomfort, especially as your skin adjusts to the feeling of treatment and you stop noticing the feeling. Once the treatment is over, any discomfort ceases and you are free to continue your day, taking precautions to protect your sensitive skin as it heals.

Benefits of Laser Facial

The laser facial utilizes advanced technology to resurface the skin. The laser safely penetrates the skin and warms the various layers of tissue with thermal energy. Heating the tissue triggers physiological responses that rejuvenate the skin, including reversing or improving:

Laser facials treat more than just the face. Laser resurfacing rejuvenates numerous areas of the body. However, the most requested treatment areas (besides the face) include the neck and chest area (decolletage) for cellular renewal, collagen creation, and skin tightening.

Cellular Renewal

Thermal energy from the cosmetic laser initiates cellular renewal. Cellular renewal is where the cells of the epidermis (top layer of skin) are continually regenerating. New, healthy cells form in the bottom layer of the skin, eventually making their way to the surface. This helps remove irregularities in tone and texture and exfoliates the surface of dead or dull skin cells. The process triggers a healing response in the body, which can repair scar tissue and offer scar flexibility as tissues tighten.

The final results reveal the underlying layer of fresh, healthy skin cells. In addition, the skin is brightened for a more radiant complexion.

Collagen Creation

Heating the deeper layers of skin tissue rejuvenates the skin on a cellular level. The thermal energy initiates collagenisis (or the creation of collagen.) This vital structural protein supports the skin and keeps it looking young, taut, healthy, and blemish-free. Collagen breaks down, and production depletes as we get older. 

This depletion of collagen means more wrinkles, blemishes, and laxity to age our face. By stimulating the production of collagen, the laser facial rejuvenates the face by:

Essentially, a laser facial helps return elasticity to your skin for a youthful appearance.

Skin Tightening

In addition to improving skin laxity by creating more collagen, thermal energy also causes the fibers that make up the skin matrix to contract or tighten. Since collagen makes up 80% of your skin’s structure, replenishing it helps bring strength back to accommodate the aging process. Therefore, even during weight gain, the skin is more readily able to expand as the body grows, remaining vibrant and supple.

Maximizing Your Laser Facial Results

Your laser treatment aftercare routine will make all the difference in the healing process. The day after treatment, you’ll use Vaseline or a gel recommended by your provider to coat the skin in moisturizing nourishment. Moisturizers should include fulfilling ingredients that offer deep hydration such as:

To avoid irritation and washing away any of the goodness that the treatment brings, avoid washing your face later in the day after treatment. Ice packs are incredibly beneficial in reducing any redness and inflammation, and Tylenol can alleviate any discomfort.

Cleansing & Protecting the Skin After Laser Treatment

Use gentle cleansers the days following your appointment (your provider should offer recommendations). Consider antimicrobial towels and pillowcases to help your skin stay at its best. While it’s not a necessary step, using antimicrobial materials around your face helps keep the surface free from bacteria that cause irritation.

Your skin will be in a highly sensitive state as you recover from a laser facial, making it more susceptible to the sun’s UV rays. As new cells generate and the skin heals, avoid too much time in the sun. Wear a hat and sunglasses, even if it’s not overly sunny outside. Remember your sunscreen – at least SPF 30 – applications should be just as frequent on a bright day as a cloudy one. Damaging rays can still reach your skin if it’s not very sunny.

Makeup application often shouldn’t happen for around a week after your appointment. While some providers are fine with less time between using makeup and a laser facial, giving your skin the extra time to heal before covering it with heavier products will only serve you better.

Setting Yourself Up For Success Before Laser Treatment

Since everyone has different skin conditions and concerns to address, it’s important to share your goals with your specialist in their entirety. Many times, it’s possible to strategically combine laser services to cover a variety of issues. Plus, you should have a clear understanding of what to expect with your laser facial of choice. 

Facials are quick, typically taking under an hour, and offer dramatic results that you can maintain for continually healthy skin. Knowing what to expect before, during, and after treatment makes all the difference in loving your results.

Photofacial Vs. Laser Facial

The difference between a photofacial and laser facial is that BBL Photofacials use BroadBand Light pulses to renew the skin. Photofacials are less invasive than laser treatments. This makes them a great solution for anyone who has minimal skin concerns and doesn’t want to take any recovery time. 

Laser facials take a bit of time to heal before seeing optimal results. It usually takes about a week after your treatment for your skin to eliminate debris – your skin will be dry and peel as it regenerates a healthy layer of skin. Patients who choose laser treatments should take the necessary precautions after an appointment, including avoiding irritating products and direct sunlight. This means wearing hats, sunglasses, and sunscreen. However, taking this time for healing has the maximum impact on results. Laser facials offer dramatic improvements to skin concerns that can make you feel self-conscious or uncomfortable.

Botox Before and After | Reverse Age Without Surgery

When you see Botox before and after photos, it is clear why this is America’s #1 anti-aging treatment. The FDA-approved injections reduce wrinkles to restore a youthful appearance. Botox has many use cases. But many men and women use it around the forehead and eyes to rejuvenate their faces.

Fine lines and wrinkles form on the face after years of repeated expression. Every time we make a facial expression, muscles under the skin move. Creases manifest over time, especially as our bodies produce less collagen and lose elasticity. Botox injections solve this problem by relaxing the muscles and smoothing lines.

The procedure is quite simple. First, a specialist inserts Botulinum Toxin (Botox in short) into the treatment area. This biodegradable protein is safe for most people unless you have a known allergy to it. This substance temporarily blocks muscle movement, so your face looks relaxed and wrinkle-free. After a few months, the body absorbs Botox and passes it through the lymphatic system. Effects typically last up to six months before patients return for more injections.

Botox Before and After Results*

Botox treats crow’s feet, frown lines, forehead lines, and other creases on the face. The results are natural-looking. After the procedure, your skin looks smoother, plumper, and more radiant.

Get the best Botox before and after results by communicating expectations with your technician. This way, he/she can come up with a proper treatment plan to accommodate your desires. Individual treatment results vary.* But if you choose a reputable Botox provider, your before and after will show noticeable improvement and stunning results.

Are Botox Injections Right for Me?

Do the wrinkles and creases on your face bother you? Do you crave firmer skin with more volume? Then, Botox may be just what you need. Even though Botox provides the same benefits for everyone, individual Botox treatments can differ depending on your needs. Your provider will craft a treatment plan to deliver optimal results based on your aesthetic goals.

Before beginning Botox, inform your technician of your known medical conditions or allergies. This prevents problems later and ensures a smooth, positive Botox experience.

Remember that your Botox results will look different from another patient’s. Having realistic expectations goes a long way toward getting great results. A skillful provider like Dermatology Laser Center and MediSpa can help you achieve your skin goals.
