summer skin care tips

Summer skin care possesses its own challenges. Though sunscreen is important in winter, particularly if you spend a lot of time in an environment that is sunny and contains reflective snow and ice surfaces, people are prone to more abuse by the sun’s rays in summer. But that’s only the beginning of a beautiful summer body and soft, youthful looking skin.

First Things First

Before you worry about taking care of your skin this summer, how’s that swimsuit body doing? Are you still trying to shed the holiday pounds you put on over winter? Getting the figure you want for summer doesn’t have to mean dieting, starving yourself, and depriving yourself of the good things in life.

Tummy tucks and liposuction can help women and men with finishing touches on winning the battle of the bulge. Particularly as we close in on a certain age, we have less and less success with dieting and may need extra help as summer closes in; and the swimsuit we wore last summer is in danger of becoming a thrift store donation because now it’s too small.

If you have lost a huge amount of weight (you may wish to look into skin tightening), need a thigh lift, want a butt lift, or some contouring, all of these will go a long way toward helping you achieve the summer body you have always longed for. Now that we have your body right where you want it, let’s take a look at some ways to make your skin all it can be.

Hydraulic Fillers

If you’d like to keep your lips plump, lift your cheeks, and generally add volume to certain parts of your face, JUVÉDERM® can help. Ranked number one in North America, this filler provides subtle but long lasting results. Repairing that problem area between your lower eyelid and your cheek, which begins to sag the older we get, is only one of the benefits of using this rejuvenating, skin plumping product. Not only will you see treated areas improve instantly, the results are natural looking. And because it is so gentle, the experience of using this product is completely comfortable.

Eliminate Wrinkles and Reverse Aging

It’s all right to be proud of your age, but that doesn’t mean you have to look your age. If you’d like to refresh and revitalize your skin, reverse the signs of aging, and eliminate those wrinkles, Sculptra® is an incredible product that can accomplish just that. Compared to other injectable fillers, however, this one works differently. It literally boosts the production of your skin’s natural collagen! Once again, you will have the skin of your youth – healthy, smells, and young looking. Results here are gradual so that no one will know that you’ve had anything done. Better yet, there are no pre-treatment allergy tests required.

Laser Resurfacing

Now don’t mistake this for the deep chemical peels and dermabrasion of years gone by. While the concept is still the same, there is a more predictable way of promoting healing involved with this procedure. A level of accuracy is added by the laser which was not in existence years ago. Fine lines in the skin, sun damage (but please do try to avoid sun damage altogether), and age spots can all be treated with laser resurfacing. With various other laser treatments, even pore size, benign moles, acne scars, and deep wrinkles are treatable.

If you don’t like your skin condition, or need just a little bit of improvement on what Mother Nature has already blessed you with, there’s no time like the present to get ready for summer. Don’t waste any more time! Make an appointment with Newman Plastic Surgery and Laser Center today.
