According to the EPA, 90% of skin aging and changes can be attributed to sun exposure. As summer winds down and the weather begins to cool, many of us will be spending more time indoors. This makes fall the best time to start skin rejuvenation treatments.
At SMooth Solutions Medspa we offer multiple options for treatments that leave your skin looking and feeling younger. They provide deep healing that you can’t get from topical skincare products alone.
Oftentimes, we can combine multiple types of skin treatments to provide full skin rejuvenation in Naperville. We offer radio frequency microneedling, BBL photofacials, laser skin resurfacing, and more. Particularly with our laser treatments, we always recommend clients schedule those in the fall.
Fall is often called “laser season,” but it should really just be “treatment season”
Technically, it’s possible to schedule laser appointments anytime, but we usually recommend clients do so in the fall for a few reasons. To a lesser extent, these reasons apply for our other treatments as well.
Less sun exposure
First and foremost, most people are going to naturally experience less sun exposure in the fall. After laser treatments, your skin is more sensitive, making it extra important that you protect it from the sun. With the cooler weather, you are already going to be spending more time indoors and wearing warmer clothes that block out the sun.
Most laser treatments require you to limit tanning and sun exposure prior to your treatment as well. Tanned skin can impact the effectiveness of the treatments.

Some of the more intense skin treatments require recovery time, and that’s often easier to navigate in the cooler months. You’ll want to avoid sun exposure after your laser resurfacing and maybe avoid scheduling important social obligations right after your treatment. Wearing make up immediately after your treatment could lead to irritation and should be avoided for at least the first 24-48 hours.
Further, some lasers require multiple sessions to achieve optimal results. These sessions are usually scheduled a few weeks apart to give the skin time to heal in between. By starting your laser sessions in the fall, you will be able to finish all your treatments before spring and summer return. Then you can enjoy your results without having to navigate the requirements for limiting your sun exposure during summer months.
What skin conditions can lasers treat?
Laser skin treatments are a very popular and effective method for skin rejuvenation in Naperville. Your provider will work with you to determine which treatment will best address your specific concerns.
- Fine Lines & Deep Wrinkles
- Sun Damage & Pigmented Lesions
- Enlarged Pores
- Acne Scars
- Poor Skin Texture
When combined with radio frequency microneedling or BBL photofacials, treatments can also address active acne and rosacea! Your provider will work with you to develop a care plan that meets your needs and goals.
What treatments are available for skin rejuvenation in Naperville?
At SMooth Solutions we offer a variety of treatments for different skin concerns.
During a BBL photofacial, your provider uses broadband light (BBL) to heat your skin, stimulating your skin’s natural ability to fight signs of aging. This innovative technology corrects a multitude of concerns all at once, including age spots, redness, and sun damage.
Different filters are used with the BBL system, depending on the skin concerns being addressed. The device is passed over the area being treated, and there is minimal to no discomfort during the treatment.
At SMooth Solutions we use the BBL HERO, which is the most powerful IPL device in the world. It’s not the same thing as a laser, which limits the skin issues BBL is able to address. The treatment is noninvasive and there is little aftercare necessary.
1 to 2 treatments may be required to see complete results. We often recommend our clients receive 2 to 3 treatments annually to keep their skin looking young.
Radio frequency microneedling
For those interested in non-surgical skin rejuvenation and tightening, radio frequency (RF) microneedling is one of the best options. There’s virtually no downtime, no adverse effects, and it’s safe for all skin types.
RF microneedling combines controlled injury of the needles with the heat of the radio frequency waves. Together, these technologies tighten the skin by encouraging the body to produce collagen and elastin.
At SMooth Solutions we specifically chose the Scarlet SRF system because it gives a more effective treatment.
When we opened our doors the first treatment we offered was electrolysis, which uses needles to remove hair. We used gold-plated needles in our electrolysis device and saw how effective it was, which helped us decide to choose the Scarlet SRF system when we began offering microneedling.
Other RF devices only heat the tip of the needle, but the Scarlet is able to produce heat through the entirety of the needle, creating a more effective, wider reaching treatment. This is called the “Na Effect.”
There is little to no recovery time expected after treatment. Your provider will discuss whether you can expect to need multiple sessions, which depends on the nature of your skin conditions.
As the world’s first hybrid fractional laser system, HALO offers a complete skin resurfacing solution, and it can treat any part of the body. clients commonly request treatment for skin rejuvenation on the face, neck, décolletage, hands, and arms.
HALO uses both ablative and nonablative wavelengths, making it one of the more intense treatments. The ablative laser removes the top layer of your skin (taking scars and other surface issues with it), while the nonablative lasers treat the deeper tissue. Together they trigger your body’s natural healing response to promote collagen growth.
Some clients are able to see results from their treatment within a few days, but the results will become more apparent as the skin heals. There is an expected recovery period of 4 to 7 days, but there is only one treatment required. Depending on your desired results, you might choose to come in for another treatment every 1 to 2 years to maintain your results.
The process for skin rejuvenation at SMooth Solutions
Every patient at SMooth Solutions receives a complimentary consultation prior to beginning any treatment plan. We take the consultation process very seriously because so much about skin rejuvenation depends on the unique patient. Your skin is as unique as you are.

We curated the best technology in the aesthetic industry so that we’re able to offer the best-in-class service to our clients. When you consult with us, we’re not going to pressure you into purchasing. We’re going to educate you on the options available.
While the treatment times and nature may vary. You can always trust our expert staff to ensure your comfort and safety throughout the process. Most of our skin rejuvenation treatments last under 1 hour. We make sure you understand the entirety of the procedure, as well as any necessary aftercare following your treatment.
You’ll be able to enjoy the results of your skin rejuvenation in Naperville with proper maintenance and care. Your specific results will depend on which treatment you received, but most clients are able to see an immediate difference that continues to improve.
Maintain the results of your skin rejuvenation in Naperville
Skin rejuvenation starts at home. Laser skin treatments, photofacials, and microneedling are great additions to your skincare regimen. But what you do between your treatments is just as important.
Developing an effective skincare routine is the best thing you can do for your skin. When you receive medical treatments for skin rejuvenation, healthier skin will be more responsive and need fewer treatments.
Medical grade skincare products offer active, potent ingredients that are clinically proven to address common skin issues like aging and acne. SMooth Solutions is proud to offer both the our own Smooth Solutions Skincare brand that was carefully formulated to help our clients maintain the results of their procedures, and for their regular skincare. In addition to our own specially formulated line, we also offer ZO skincare and Alastin products.
We also offer dermaplaning, chemical peels and hydrafacials. These treatments are great for getting in between your more intensive laser skin treatments to maintain your results. There is a lot you can do with a quality at home routine, but there is a level of care from a medspa that you just can’t replicate on your own.
