Here at Laser Lights Cosmetic Laser Center, we’re certainly feeling the heat. Temperatures are rising with the summer season in full swing. In addition to wanting to look your best for all of your summertime trips to the beach and pool, it’s also important to consider how to best take care of your skin during the hot summer months. After all, the sun’s UV rays can have a powerful negative affect on your complexion if you’re not careful. To help our patients keep their skin looking great this summer and beyond, our cosmetic experts wanted to share a few helpful summertime skin care tips.
Acne flare ups can happen any time of the year, however they are most common during the summer. This is due to excess sweat and oil on our skin that are caused by hotter summer temperatures. Here at Laser Lights, we offer a wide variety of award-winning acne treatments including SilkPeel® Dermalinfusion, chemical peels, pore extractions, and more. We also offer ways to treat acne scarring including cosmetic laser treatments and microneedling.
Tip #2: Don’t Forget Your Eyes
Refreshing the appearance of the eyes is a top aesthetic priority for many people who experience premature signs of aging. Hot weather can be harsh on all areas of the skin, but this is especially true for the fragile skin around the eyes. Thankfully, we offer simple nonsurgical cosmetic treatments meant to help rejuvenate the eyes. We recommend Skin Tightening with Viora™ Reaction, which tightens the skin in this area by safely boosting the production of natural collagen and elastin fiber. Injectable treatments like Botox® and Dysport® can help alleviate “crow’s feet” around the eyes.
Tip #3: Take Care of Brown Spots
Benign brown spots are common for people who spend time in the sun during the summer. These small patches of skin discoloration, caused by direct exposure to the sun’s UV rays, most commonly occur on the neck, ears, face, arms, hands and legs. We are able to restore a more even skin tone by treating brown spots with cosmetic laser technology. When performed by the experienced laser professionals at Laser Lights, one treatment session is typically all that is required to remove a brown spot from the skin.
Tip #4: Protect & Moisturize Your Skin
Protecting your skin with a broad-spectrum sunscreen (minimum 30 SPF) is important year round, but especially so during any time spent outdoors during the summer. Doing so will keep your skin healthy and hydrated while shielding it from sun damage. When night time comes, use a moisturizer before bed to maintain hydration through the night.
