With temperatures heating up and skin feeling dull from the winter season, putting skincare on the forefront of your routine can help provide you with that summer glow you are looking for. There are many types of skin rejuvenation techniques that can be performed during the summer months, including laser treatments and CoolSculpting. These treatments are perfectly safe as long as you listen to the aftercare steps recommended by your skincare specialist. Incorporating healthy power foods into your summer diet can also have positive effects on your skin.
Treatment Dos and Don’ts
Arizonans are more likely to stay indoors during the summer and avoid sunlight due to skyrocketing temperatures, which is what you must do after most skin treatments. Chemical peels and lasers are great at penetrating through layers of skin to provide you with a fresh and younger looking complexion. For example, an Active FX laser can take ten years off your complexion in one treatment. When these types of remedies are performed, skin becomes sensitive to the sun. This means that it’s important to stay indoors and avoid sunlight as much as possible, which is an easy task for most when it’s 120 degrees outside.
No one wants to spend hours in the gym to achieve their desired swimsuit body, which is why CoolSculpting is the number one non-surgical treatment for fat reduction. The treatment freezes fat cells and eliminates it for good. After just one treatment, CoolSculpting has shown to reduce 25% of subcutaneous fat and improvement is seen in 86% of patients. There are no special requirements that coincide with this treatment such as crazy diets, exercise programs or supplements. Plus, the results are noticeable and natural, and can be seen in as little as one session.
Go All Natural
Making sure you drink enough water is pretty much the law in Arizona. Adding in anti-inflammatory foods with high water content like celery and watermelon can help your skin look and feel its best. Fruits with high vitamin C can help your skin’s collagen production to keep your body’s elasticity and youthful appearance in top shape, especially after a treatment. Also, reaching for fresh berries that are naturally packed with antioxidants can help protect skin from the damaging effects of the sun.
Overall, good skincare comes from a good treatment team and fueling your body properly, which is why Derma Health Skin & Laser is dedicated to providing a well-rounded approach to skincare and addressing all outside and inside factors. By timing your treatments just right and taking care of your health, you can achieve a glow that lasts beyond any season and radiates through your skin and personality.
