Prepping Your Skin for Summer

The advent of summer ushers in more than your warm-weather wardrobe. The changing of the seasons also means ramping up your skin care program to accommodate the warmer temperatures and increased sun exposure. In addition, treatments may be needed for that skin coming out of hiding for the season to treat minor imperfections and concerns that have been safely hidden away during the cooler winter months. At New Visage, we have your summer skin prep covered, with a bevy of treatments to get you ready for a glorious season enjoying the sand and sun.

Reverse Sun Damage

Brown spots and fines lines are often the result of sun exposure. The good news is you can reverse much of this damage with non-surgical treatments designed to refresh the skin and eliminate those signs of sun damage. One of the best treatments for this purpose is photodynamic therapy that uses different wavelengths of light to work underneath the skin’s surface and eliminate age spots and vascular lesions. The procedure does not involve any downtime, although patients will experience some skin peeling for 1-3 days before results become evident.

Say Goodbye to Cellulite

Cellulite isn’t a major problem during the cooler season when it can be safely hidden under jeans and pants. However, cellulite can become a major cosmetic embarrassment when bathing suit season rolls around. To combat that cottage cheese appearance, New Visage offers two innovative cellulite treatments, Cellfina and Accent XL cellulite reduction. These minimally-invasive procedures attack cellulite at its source, creating smoother skin and a more pleasing aesthetic appearance.

Go Hair Free

Unwanted body hair can also be a bane during the summer season, unless you are prepared to spend much more time with your razor or depilatory. Now, you can forgo the regular de-fuzzing with laser hair removal treatments that offer permanent hair reduction. Laser energy is delivered directly into the hair follicles, damaging the follicle so current hair sheds and future hair has difficult growing. This procedure can be used on nearly any area of the body where unwanted hair develops, including the legs, chest, back, underarms and bikini line.

Refresh, Renew, Rejuvenate

The winter climate can take a toll on your complexion, leaving it dull and lifeless for the upcoming social season. Give your skin the refreshment is needs with exfoliating chemical peels or pampering facials designed to target your specific skin concerns. With many formulations available, we can tailor your treatment to your specific needs and cosmetic goals. Chemical peels also come in a variety of depths, allowing you treatments that range from superficial refreshment to dramatic skin enhancing results.

Protect, Protect, Protect

Once your skin is properly treated, protect it from further damage with medical-grade skin care featuring broad-spectrum sun protection. Sunscreen should be worn daily year-round, but becomes even more essential in the summer when you spend more time outdoors. In addition to applying your protection every morning, you should reapply sunscreen every two hours or after coming out of the water if you are going to be outside for any prolonged period of time.

Your skin is the largest organ of your body and much more exposed during the warm months of summer. Treat it right with procedures designed to eliminate imperfections and bring your complexion to a greater state of healthy vitality.
