Fall Treatments and Trends!

The Fall months are upon us!  What better time of year to focus on correcting the damage from the summer sun and work on the things we hope to improve by the time next comes. WDC is hosting a lunch event on October 20th and will cover all the latest on fall treatments and trends! If you are wondering what cosmetic procedure is right for you, then you will not want to miss this event! Please RSVP by calling 910-256-4350 or email

On today’s blog, we’re going to focus on one of our favorite skin rejuvenation treatments that is ideal for Fall and Wintertime!  As you age, your skin’s collagen and elastin simply break down faster than your body can rebuild them. The slowed remodeling of these skin-tightening proteins causes your skin to thin, droop and lose elasticity—which often leads to winkles, furrows and fine lines. Our Fraxel Dual laser is the perfect solution to turn back the hands of time, and keep you looking as young as you feel.

Fraxel is effective in treating:

  • Fine lines and wrinkles – like crow’s feet and brow lines
  • Surface scarring – erasing effects of acne and other scarring
  • Pigmentation – minimizing the appearance of age spots
  • Sun damage – helping heal dangerous skin damage
  • Actinic Keratosis (AK) – a common pre-cancerous skin condition

Like most lasers, it’s important to choose a treatment time of year where you won’t be exposed to excess sun.  Having sun exposure after laser treatments can lead to scarring and skin discoloration. Since Fraxel Dual is tailored to your desired outcome, depending on the aggressiveness of the treatment, you may experience some immediate redness or swelling. A cooling agent is provided immediately following the procedure as well as an extensive overview of side effects.  It is best to setup a complimentary consult with your provider or our cosmetic consultant to get a tailored treatment plan and expected outcome.  Don’t forget to join us for our lunchtime event to see before and after results, and more detailed treatment expectations!
