End of Summer Skin Tips

Summer is the time for relaxing vacations and fun in the sun. It’s not all carefree though—excessive sun exposure can have really dramatic effects on your skin. Sun damage can cause, among other things, sun spots, hyperpigmentation, advanced signs of aging, and scaly patches called skin keratosis. If you got a little more sun than you bargained for, try these end of summer tips to take care of your skin.

Hydrate Yourself

One of the most worrisome side effects of excessive sun damage is dry, flaky skin. Dry skin happens because the sun’s UV rays can dry out our skin’s moisture and essential oils. Even worse—dry skin is also more likely to wrinkle and develop lines. To counteract dry skin and get that glow back, try a hydrating facial with peel. A hydrating facial with peel will infuse Vitamins A and C into your skin to restore firmness along with healthy solutions like toners, antioxidants, and growth factors. The end result? Glowing, moisturized skin.

Renew Your Skin

Sometimes, starting over is the best course of action, especially when it comes to your skin. Consider The Triple Threat Peel, a multistep, holistic technique that removes sun-caused imperfections on the older, outer layers of the skin and reveals newer fresher skin underneath. The triple threat peel works through:

  • A skin cleansing toner
  • A degreaser to remove excess oil and kill acne-causing bacteria
  • A dermaplaning tool to physically exfoliate the skin
  • A chemical peel to remove outer layers of the skin
  • Cryotherapy to cool and soothe the skin while reducing inflammation
  • Moisturizer and SPF 30 sunscreen

It’s strong, effective, and cooling. Is there a better way to recover from the summer?

Lost Volume? Try Juvederm!

If you didn’t know it already, one of the most lasting effects of sun damage is the loss of skin elasticity. Sun damage can actually affect production of collagen, an important protein in our body that’s responsible for keeping our skin looking tight and young. Want to restore that sense of youth? Try a dermal filler like Juvederm and Juvederm Voluma; these are injectables specifically engineered to restore volume to your skin and smooth out wrinkles and fine lines. Since it has no downtime, you’ll be ready to show off your new look in time for the fall. Try Juvederm for those pesky new facial lines and Juvederm Voluma for sunken cheeks.
