Taking care of your skin can feel like a full-time job, but now is the time to dive into summer skin preparation!
Summer Skin Care Tips
1 – Hydrate – Let’s face it, summer in South Texas is hot. It’s easy to get dehydrated without even knowing it, so keep a bottle of water handy and drink, drink, drink. A hydrating mist is a nice refresher on a hot day, too. Your skin will thank you!
2 – Exfoliate – Exfoliation helps keep your skin fresh and clear of dead skin that can clog your pores. It also creates a smoother surface for a more effective self-tanner application.
3 – Sunscreen – We all know how important this one is, especially in the summer when you are exposed to more direct sun than usual. Apply a generous amount of sunscreen from head to toe, repeatedly throughout the day if you are out in the sun.
4 – Targeted skin care treatments – Visit with your DermSurgery Associates expert to determine what skin care treatment options would be ideal for your summer skin preparation. Our experts will work with you to recommend the best skin-care approach to support your individual needs and wishes.
Targeted Treatment Options
Thermage® treatments promote younger looking, tighter and firmer skin. It is an ideal option for conditions like skin laxity and fine lines and wrinkles on the face, neck, buttocks, abdomen and extremities. It is a very effective procedure for body shaping and improvement of cellulite. Using radio frequency to heat deep layers of skin, Thermage® treatments stimulate the production of collagen which supports healthy, vibrant skin.
Another option to explore with your skin-care team is Fraxel® laser treatments. DermSurgery Associates offers a full suite of Fraxel® laser treatments. These products address a variety of conditions like acne scars, lines and wrinkles, skin laxity, sun damage, stretch marks, discoloration, scarring, actinic keratosis and melasma. Your dermatologist can help determine which Fraxel® laser treatment is the right summer skin prep strategy for you.
V Beam Perfecta® Cynergy is another popular laser treatment option. This procedure uses pulsed-dye laser technology to treat unsightly skin discolorations including vascular, pigmented and certain non-pigmented lesions. It effectively treats enlarged blood vessels, scars, hemangiomas, port wine stains and other vascular lesions.
