How to choose the right summer-safe skincare service

July 01, 2022 Blog, Skin Treatments No Comments »

With the warm months finally upon us, it’s more important than ever to take care of your skin.
As the summer brings clogged pores, sweat and sun exposure, it can be hard to maintain a clear
complexion. However, unlike the colder season, it’s crucial to note that not all advanced skincare
treatments are safe to have performed in the summertime. Certain treatments, like chemical peels
and laser/light therapy, can make your skin especially sensitive to the sun’s UV rays.
However, that doesn’t mean you have to completely press pause on the treatments. These three
skincare treatments listed below are great all-year round, regardless of the temperature!

Dermaplaning
This popular procedure is an excellent alternative to chemical peels in the summer, as it keeps
skin looking fresh and radiant. With dermaplaning, an esthetician uses a medical-grade scalpel to
remove the upper layer of your skin, revealing fresh cells underneath. By choosing dermaplaning
in the summer, you’ll be able to exfoliate your skin all while eliminating the possibility of oils
and dirt clinging to the dead skin cells on your face. Because the procedure doesn’t sensitize
your skin to the sun, and doesn’t involve pain, peeling or downtime, it’s safe as can be, all year
round.

Microneedling
Microneedling is a good summer go-to, as long as you’re diligent about reapplying your SPF.
The pen uses tiny needles to puncture the skin, creating tiny wounds. Your body’s wound
healing response then kickstarts, and stimulates your skin’s production of collagen. This summer
skincare secret can lead you to younger-looking, glowy skin, as the treatment works to curb acne
breakouts, shrink pores and exfoliate.

Botox
Botox is a non-invasive way to smooth out fine facial lines and wrinkles. It reduces signs of
aging, slims out the face and requires no downtime. On the plus side, the treatment is also not
affected by sun exposure, which means you’re all clear to try it out in the summertime! Because
it takes two weeks to see noticeable results, time the treatment according to any special occasions
you might have going on.

While we love all of our treatments, it’s important to protect your skin, especially in the heat that
June, July and August bring. While it may look like it, not everything is off limits— in fact,

summer can be a great time to fall in love with your skin! Book your free consultation by visiting
