Our patients often ask us to recommend cosmetic treatments that are good to do in the summer. With time off from school and work, summer can be the ideal time for those skin care procedures you’ve always wanted to do.
Yet, while you may have time off, and you want to work on the appearance of your skin, some procedures lend themselves better to summer than others. In this article, we look at a few of our favorite skin care treatments for summertime, so you ensure you’re looking great and are still able to enjoy your sunny, outdoor activities.
#1: Combat Aging with Injectables and Fillers
Injectables like BOTOX® and XEOMIN® can take years off your face and help you feel your best. Summer is a great time for injectables as well as dermal fillers because they require no downtime, and they don’t make your skin sensitive to the sun.
BOTOX and XEOMIN improve the appearance of moderate to severe lines and wrinkles under your eyes. Fillers like JUVÉDERM® and BELOTERO® plump where you need it. RADIESSE® helps rebuild your collagen and restore fullness to your face. Injectables and fillers are ideal all year long and help you attain a more youthful appearance.
#2: Rejuvenate with the SkinPen®
The SkinPen is perfect for summer because the recovery period is brief, and you still get noticeable results. While you will need to protect your skin with a good SPF, you can get back outside within a few days.
The SkinPen treatment is a microneedling treatment that can improve fine lines and wrinkles, reduce the appearance of scars and even out skin tone and texture.
#3: Nourish with the HydraFacial MD® Elite
Your next must-have summer treatment is the HydraFacial. The HydraFacial uses water and nourishing serums to clean, exfoliate and moisturize your skin. Each facial is fully customized to your skin type and needs, and it can repair sun damage, encourage collagen production and leave you with smoother skin.
We love this treatment for summer because it’s quick, safe for all skin types and has little downtime. As always, you should wear sun protection at all times to protect your skin.
#4: Tighten and Lift with Ultherapy®
If you’d like to tighten and lift the skin on your face and neck, Ultherapy is another treatment you can have during the summer months because it requires no surgery or downtime. Ultherapy is the only FDA-cleared, non-invasive procedure that lifts and tightens the neck, chin and brow, and improves lines and wrinkles on the chest.
Because Ultherapy uses ultrasound to stimulate your body to produce more collagen, the results are gradual and improve over time, usually within three-six months.
#5: Get Rid of Fat with CoolSculpting®
Bathing suits, short shorts, tank tops and sundresses can wreak havoc on your body image. If you’re looking for a way to reduce fat in the summer, CoolSculpting can help.
The CoolSculpting procedure is the world’s number one non-invasive fat reduction treatment. This innovative procedure contours your body by freezing unwanted fat away without surgery or downtime. This treatment can help you get rid of stubborn bulges, love handles, bra fat, back fat, thigh fat and even the double chin. It’s also a great summertime treatment option.
Spending so much time outside and in the sunlight often makes people look to improving and rejuvenating their skin. Summertime can be an ideal time for some treatments, but when you’re spending a lot of time outdoors, you want to work with your skin care provider to focus on the best treatments for you as well as your skin.
