Just because summer is fast approaching doesn't mean you have to put your skin goals on hold. Check out these treatments if you'd like to continue to improve the health and appearance of your skin all summer long.
Although tanned skin can create obstacles for some treatments, like laser and intense pulsed light (IPL), there are several treatments deemed "Summer Safe" by our Advanced Practice Estheticians -- even if you don't shun the sun!
If you want baby soft, smooth skin all summer long, you can't beat dermablading. Not only does it remove dead skin cell buildup to gently resurface your skin, but it also takes care of annoying facial hair (peach fuzz) that can stand out in the bright summer sun. Your Esthetician will use a rounded scalpel held parallel to your skin to remove buildup and peach fuzz in a series of short, skillful swipes. Dermablading is an excellent form of advanced exfoliation to schedule in the summer because it does not cause photosensitivity. Plus, it can be added to other treatments, like DiamondGlow™, to enhance your results.
Do you breakout easily in the summer? Does your skin get dehydrated and dull-looking? DiamondGlow™ can be customized to treat any skin concern that comes your way during the summer, all while leaving your skin with an incredible glow! It's an advanced resurfacing treatment that exfoliates, extracts impurities, and infuses your skin with targeted serums. As a result, skin is volumized by over 70% and left feeling incredibly smooth, plump, and glowing! Several treatments are available - Pore Clarifying, Ultra Hydrating, Vitamin C, Skin Brightening, and TNS® Advanced+ Growth Factor Serum. Your provider will choose the one best for you. Monthly DiamondGlow™ treatments, especially when combined with dermablading and SkinMedica's Illuminize® peel, can keep your skin goals on track all summer long!
Are you working on improving acne scarring, enlarged pores, or fine lines? If so, SkinPen® Microneedling is an effective treatment option that is safe to continue throughout the summer months as long as a daily SPF is worn. When glided across the skin, SkinPen® creates thousands of microscopic channels into the dermis to activate your skin's healing process, building collagen and elastin. With each treatment, your complexion will become smoother and tighter. In addition, you can wear makeup the day after your treatment, making SkinPen® incredibly easy to work around a busy summer schedule.
Regardless of what treatments you schedule this summer, remember to wear a daily SPF to protect your skin from environmental damage. Haven't found the one you like yet? Learn about our SkinMedica® SPF collection.
