During this time of summer many patients ask us to give them our thoughts on what treatments they can get done that won’t necessarily affect their summer glow or create scabbing that will keep them away from the sun.
1. Laser Hair Removal: One of the best treatments to get any time of the year is our Laser Hair Removal treatments. Our Vectus laser works on all skin types and we have many patients that get treatments and touch-ups throughout the summer.
2. JUVA Calendula moisturizer: If a patient is looking for a summer moisturizer that won’t leave their skin oily and sweaty we always suggest the JUVA Calendula oil-free moisturizer. It’s not as heavy as regular moisturizers and it prevents oil build-up which becomes worse during summer months. It’s also great if a patient typically has acne breakouts during the summer because this moisturizer is oil free.
3. Pulsed Dye Laser: Patients with sensitive skin can get sunburns that create facial broken capillaries or telangiectasia that appear as unsightly red lines. The Pulsed Dye Laser treatment removes the broken blood vessels and redness caused by broken capillaries. The treatment is painless and there is no downtime. Patients can return to their daily summer schedule after treatment, which is why we suggest it even during the mid-summer weeks.
4. Smartxide Dot Laser: If patients are looking for a smoother finish on their face, we suggest the Smartxide Laser. With this treatment, patients will have to just wear sunscreen for 1-2 weeks post treatment on a daily basis but it leaves their skin very smooth. The Smartxide Laser decreases the size of your pores, wrinkles and roughness. It won’t take away your summer glow and there is no downtime. It’s also a great treatment for acne scarring.
