It’s easy to take the sun for granted, but it has a profound effect on your skin. In addition to performing daily skin care, such as wearing sunscreen, you should also consider which cosmetic procedures are safe during the summer. After all, certain treatments could cause undesirable skin pigment changes when mixed with sun exposure, including laser procedures. Fortunately, there are many safe, effective cosmetic treatments to choose from during the summer.
If you want to get rid of surface skin abnormalities, such as stretch marks, scars, uneven skin tone, and persistent blackheads, SilkPeel microdermabrasion could be the right option. This uses a mild yet abrasive solution to slough away dead skin cells and promote collagen production, leaving you with smoother, healthier-looking skin.
The increasingly popular cosmetic procedure called microneedling uses ultrafine needles to deliver platelet-rich plasma (PRP) to the treatment area. PRP invigorates cellular turnover and stimulates collagen production without the use of fractional lasers. The procedure is minimally invasive, safe during the summer, and requires little to no downtime. Once the treated area heals, you can expect to see:
- Reduced wrinkles and fine lines
- Smoother, softer skin
- Less visible acne scars
- More even skin tone
Whether your goal is to soothe sun-damaged skin, get rid of wrinkles, or exfoliate and deep-clean your skin, facials are the perfect summertime cosmetic procedure. Make these treatments a routine part of your skin care program, and you’ll maintain glowing, radiant skin! Choose from several relaxing, beautifying treatments at Skin Cancer Specialists, P.C. & Aesthetic Center, including:
- Moisture infusion facial
- Purifying facial
- Anti-aging facial
- Healing touch facial
Each treatment lasts 60 minutes and includes an invigorating facial massage and foot massage.
Cosmetic facial injections are popular for minimizing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Different injectables treat different types of wrinkles:
- Botox is an injectable that relaxes facial muscles to reduce dynamic wrinkles caused by smiling, frowning, and other facial expressions.
- Restylane Lyft, Restylane Refyne, Sculptra, and Juvederm are dermal fillers that re-inflate saggy skin to fill in fine lines and static wrinkles.
Saggy skin is a normal part of aging, but you can combat it with Ultherapy, which uses ultrasound technology to rejuvenate and tighten skin on the brow, neck, and below the chin. The non-surgical procedure delivers low levels of ultrasound energy to the deep layers of your skin. Your body responds to the resulting heat by contracting and producing more collagen, the key ingredient for tight, youthful-looking skin.
