Summer is FINALLY here which means beach, camping, family BBQs and sunshine! But sunshine also means risk of sun damage so skin care, while ALWAYS important, is at its utmost importance this time of the year. Professional grade sunscreens are especially important to protect your skin, as is proper cleansers, antioxidants such as vitamin C to prevent damage and growth factors to repair damage.
Many treatments aren’t ideal to do in the summer as lasers can leave skin more susceptible to damage as it heals from a treatment. Or, lasers that are attracted to pigmentation, pick up on the pigment in tanned skin and can lead to hypo-pigmentation.
There are LOTS of treatments that are great to do during this time of the year! Here are our top 5 that are perfect for summer.
This treatment is perfect for summer. Smooth out dynamic wrinkles with these injectables that give a visible improvement for 3 to 4 months! The most popular areas of treatment are the 11’s, forehead lines, crow’s feet, injection for facial slimming and the neck!
Immediate results that last up to a year, fillers give maximum impact with little downtime. If you have a special event or just want to look younger or less “tired”, fillers may be the right treatment for you. Facial volume decreases as we age leading to sagging skin and wrinkles and fillers can help lift the face and restore the lost volume. This gives a beautiful, youthful appearance.
PRP combined with HA has quickly become a favorite at White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic. The combination therapy brings together the long and short-term benefits of the two treatments leaving you with plumped up, hydrated skin immediately, with the natural, long-term collagen production and luminosity that PRP brings. The physicians at White Rock Skin & Laser Clinic use a mesotherapy injection gun for even distribution and better coverage with the product.
During the summer when lasers aren’t generally suggested, we are happy to offer Microneedling to our clients. It has a similar mechanism of action: creating tiny micro-injuries to the skin to stimulate the production of collagen. As the skin heals the quality of the skin improves leaving you with beautiful, refreshed skin. Microneedling targets fine lines, scars, acne scars, skin texture and even mild pigmentation issues.
If you dislike the way your skin has loosened as you age and aren’t interested in injectable treatments, laser skin tightening could be right for you! Sagging skin on the lower face is one of the most common complaints we receive, and we are happy to offer a laser solution. A series of comfortable treatments with no down time are performed over the course of a few months. The heat stimulates collagen and elastin without targeting pigmentation or leaving skin more susceptible to sun damage. This tightens and lifts the skin leaving you with a more youthful appearance. Even better with done in conjunction with fillers!
