Skin Treatments for Fall

Is your skin ready for the upcoming fall months? Fall is the best time of year to get down and dirty with your skin treatments. The provider team at The Spa at MidAmerica loves to really fire up those lasers when Fall rolls around! You most likely spent a lot more time outdoors during the spring and summer months, which may have wreaked havoc on your skin. Even though many of us love the temporary tan and glow the sun gives our skin, it actually brings out the worst in our skin, such as pigmentation, redness, dryness, and uneven skin tone and texture. Laser treatments and chemical peels are the best solutions to help improve the skin damage our summer fun tends to leave behind.


A Forever Young or Forever Clear BBL is perfect for correcting pigmentation and redness. This laser treatment uses light that is absorbed by melanin and oxyhemoglobin and heat is generated destroying the targeted pigment, without damaging the surrounding tissue. A BBL treatment is great for correcting sunspots, age spots, freckles, sun damage, rosacea, and broken blood vessels. Treatments last 30-45 minutes and require little to no downtime, so you can get back to your normal routine after treatment. We recommend a series of 3 treatments to begin with for best results.


Create an overall more youthful, glowing appearance with a Halo laser treatment. Halo laser offers a dual approach to skin improvement, combining both ablative and non-ablative wavelengths to deliver powerful results with less downtime than traditional laser skin resurfacing. Halo provides rejuvenation by treating the outer layer of skin and causing a regenerative effect in deeper tissues where collagen resides. This helps treat not only sun damage but other concerns such as melasma, rough texture, scarring, fine lines and wrinkles, and enlarged pores. Combining the HALO with BBL works wonders on our sun damaged skin revealing a fresh new glow.

VI Peel

Another great and affordable option for correcting sun damage is the VI peel. The VI Peel offers a non-invasive approach to healthier, younger looking skin with very little downtime. VI Peels are suitable for all skin types and will help with acne scars, fine lines, wrinkles, sun damage, and pore size. The first two days following your treatment, your skin will not peel. The peeling process will begin on the third day and will be completed within one week. We recommend a series of three treatments for best results.
