Transitioning with Rejuvenation MD
As the leaves start to change colors and the air becomes crisp, it's time to bid farewell to the sunny days of summer and embrace the beauty of the cooler months. Just as we adjust our wardrobes for the new season, our skincare routines also need a transition to ensure our skin remains healthy, radiant, and protected.
At Rejuvenation MD, we understand that each season brings unique skincare challenges and opportunities. In this guide, we'll walk you through a physician's perspective on fall skin care. We'll cover how to transition your skincare routine for the autumn months, introduce you to our carefully curated products, discuss the best services to consider during fall, and offer solutions for common skin problems you may encounter. So, let's dive in!
Transitioning Your Skincare Routine for Fall
The changing seasons can have a significant impact on your skin. As the humidity drops and temperatures cool, it's essential to adapt your skincare routine to address the specific needs of your skin during the fall months. Just like your summer skincare routine, your fall skincare should start with high-quality medical-grade skincare. Here's a step-by-step guide to help you make the transition to fall seamlessly:
Start your fall skincare routine with a gentle and hydrating cleanser like our Gentle Everyday Cleanser. Our everyday cleanser is safe and effective for every skin type including sensitive skin, dry skin, oily skin, and combination skin. This will help remove any residual summer sunscreen and sweat without stripping your skin barrier. It also prepares your skin for the products to come. A double cleanse will ensure a clean canvas so that the following products will have a clean surface to work through!
Consider the benefits of maintaining regular HydraFacial treatments. HydraFacial treatments cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate the skin, making them an excellent choice for fall. Our aesthetician is trained to provide HydraFacials with various add-on boosters that are tailored to your specific skin needs. Having a monthly Hydrafacial MD helps unclog pores, remove dead skin cells, and reduce acne breakouts while keeping your skin refreshed, glowing, and healthy leading into the holiday season.
Fall weather can be drying, so a quality moisturizer is essential to treat and prevent dry skin. Our Restore Crème is a fantastic option for locking in moisture and hydration without pore-clogging ingredients. As the cold weather arrives, apply the thicker moisturizer liberally to keep your skin soft and supple morning and night.
Benefits of the Restore Creme:
Systems of naturally occurring lipids in the skin provide essential nourishment and visibly improve elasticity and texture
Supports a collagen-rich appearance, helping to visibly reduce fine lines and wrinkles
Amino acids store water to visibly plump and smooth skin while hyaluronic acid ensures continuous hydration
SPF Is Still a Must
My biggest fall skincare tip is don't put away your sunscreen just because summer is over. UV rays are still present, and sun protection remains crucial year-round. Our Rosegold Tinted SPF 50 provides broad-spectrum protection to shield your skin from harmful UV damage. If you aren’t interested in a tinted SPF, no worries! We also offer it in a clear version. If you can’t decide between tinted or untinted sunscreen, we can help you decide. SPF isn’t just for summer. Every season, every day, rain, snow, sleet, shine, or even if you do not walk outside, SPF is needed to maintain healthy skin and prevent skin cancer!
Serums and Treatments
Consider adding a serum to your fall routine to target specific concerns. Our vitamin C serum is a powerful antioxidant that can help combat free radical damage and promote a brighter complexion. Studies show that adding a Vitamin C serum to your morning routine can help reverse sun damage.

63% reduction in wrinkle depth in just 28 days
Protects against photoaging of the skin

Services Best Done in the Fall
Fall is an excellent time to ditch the aesthetic treatment guilt and take advantage of certain aesthetic treatments that may be more comfortable and effective during this season. Here are a few services to consider:
IPL (Intense Pulsed Light) Photofacial treatments are highly effective for addressing various skin issues, including sun damage, brown spots, redness, and uneven skin tone. Doing an IPL Photofacial Treatment regimen in the fall is particularly beneficial because it helps reverse the effects of summer sun exposure and prepares your skin for the upcoming winter months when UV radiation is still present. IPL Photofacials are typically done once a month for at least 3 total treatments, promote collagen production, and can leave your skin looking refreshed and rejuvenated.
In addition to IPL, other laser treatments like our CO2 Laser Resurfacing can also be done in the fall to address specific concerns like fine lines, wrinkles, and textural irregularities. Laser procedures like CO2 often require you to avoid direct sunlight post-treatment, making this season a more practical choice.
Consistency with Dysport/Botox
Maintaining consistency with Dysport or Botox injections is key to preventing the formation of fine lines and wrinkles. Fall is an excellent time to schedule your regular treatments to keep your skin looking smooth and youthful as you head into the holiday season and beyond.
Transitioning your skincare routine for fall is essential to ensure your skin remains healthy and beautiful throughout the changing seasons. At Rejuvenation MD, we offer a range of products and services to help you address common skin problems and maintain a glowing complexion year-round.
Remember, protecting your skin from the sun with our SPF is a non-negotiable step, even in the fall. And when it comes to treating specific concerns like pigmentation and sun damage consider IPL Photofacial treatments and laser therapy, which can make a significant difference in rejuvenating your skin.
