3 Post-Summer Cosmetic Treatments

As summer begins to fade, you may start noticing the results of your overexposure to the sun, and how it has affected the appearance of your skin. But don’t worry!

There are many ways you can repair your post-summer skin and reverse the signs of any damage as we begin to move into fall. Here are 4 cosmetic treatments you may want to consider:

1. Chemical Peels

Autumn and winter are ideal times to indulge your complexion with radical regeneration, without risking the harmful effects of ultraviolet rays.

Performed by a skilled skin specialists, a customized chemical peel can help regenerate your skin after so many days in the sun, evening out its color and smoothening minor irregularities, so you have a smoother and more natural-looking complexion.

Some of the ways a chemical peel can help your appearance include:
  • Regenerates, hydrates and improves the overall look of your skin
  • Brightens your complexion
  • Increases the elasticity of your skin
  • Minimizes any uneven pigmentation
  • Improves the condition of acne-prone skin
  • Reduces the size of your pores

2. Microdermabrasion

Fall is a great time to think about skin resurfacing treatments such as microdermabrasion. After a summer of outdoor fun (full of UV rays, salt, wind, air conditioning etc), such cosmetic treatments create softer and smoother skin for the upcoming winter.

Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive, yet powerful, cosmetic treatment that uses tiny crystals or diamonds to exfoliate and remove the superficial layer of dead and damaged skin cells. It has many benefits including:

 

It is Painless
Microdermabrasion is a non-invasive procedure and doesn’t require any topical pain mediation.

While patients may feel a slight stinging sensation from the diamond-tipped wand, the feeling is not intense.

Quick Treatment Time

While the treatment time will depend on the size and location of the treatment area, most microdermabrasion procedures take approximately 30 minutes.

No Significant Downtime

Microdermabrasion is well-suited for patients who can’t afford to take time off work or spend hours on any beauty procedure.

Reduced Scarring

Microdermabrasion is not only a great way to lessen or eliminate scars, it also provides you with cleaner pores so you have fewer battles with acne and blackheads.

 

3. Affirm Laser

Skin aging is a direct consequence of two processes: internal age-related changes of the skin and photodamage caused by sun exposure. If you find that your wrinkles and skin pigmentation are more pronounced after this sunny season, affirm laser therapy might be right for you!

Affirm Fractional Laser uses an innovative technology with two laser wavelengths to resurface the skin, bringing about a reduction in fine lines, sun damage and skin laxity.

Some of the areas of concerns that can be addressed by Affirm include:

  • Wrinkles on the face, neck, chest, hands and feet
  • Fine lines around the lips and eyes
  • Age spots and blemishes
  • Acne scars
  • Open pores
  • Skin laxity
  • Stretch marks of stomach, arms and buttocks
Is Affirm the right post-summer skin-care option for me?

While it is always best to book a consultation with a skin specialist before embarking on any cosmetic treatment, men and women of all ages and skin types, who have problems relating to fine lines and blemishes, can benefit from the revolutionary Affirm Fractional Laser procedure.
