With the sun coming out leading up to the warmest summer months, we must adjust many aspects of our lifestyles, from the clothes we wear to the products we use. This applies, of course, to our skincare regimes, which certainly begins with a boost in sun protection but doesn’t end there by any means. If you’re a proponent to skin resurfacing, what are your options for summer safe skin resurfacing treatments? Our specialists at Fiore Skin Clinic answer this question in full!
Before considering your summer safe skin resurfacing options, let’s first make some adjustments together. Make a grand (and safe!) entrance to summer by first finding a daily SPF moisturizer like Image Matte Moisturizer with 32 SPF. Wear your SPF daily! For extra protection, consider using Jane Iredale Mineral Makeup for a physical sunblock.
Next, put your Broad Band Light treatments (BBL) on hold while your skin is exposed to so much sun during the summer months. BBL is a wonderful light-based treatment that works magic on your collagen production, but it’s necessary to draw back on this over the summer.
A fabulous summer-safe skin resurfacing treatment is one we’ve also just added to our roster of services: microdermabrasion! The advanced, non-crystal microdermabrasion offered at Fiore Skin Clinic is safe year-round and provides an excellent alternative to your BBL treatments.
Working by removing the dead, dry skin cells to obtain a better skin-texture and a youthful, glowing appearance, microdermabrasion is more than just cosmetic. By working away at a thickened stratum corneum, which is the outermost layer of skin, your skincare products – including your moisturizers and SPF – can reach the lower layers of skin and help your cells to produce more collagen.
A chemical peel is a fabulous way to enter an upcoming summer occasion, like a wedding or a big party, with the most glowing skin. At Fiore Skin Clinic, we offer a variety of chemical skin resurfacing treatments from superficial no downtime peels (great for summer!) to deep TCA or Phenol peels, which are miracle-worker medical grade chemical peels that utilize carefully selected ingredients but require a bit more downtime.
A light-based therapy that is safe for summer, our NanoLaserPeel™ is faster and more comfortable than microdermabrasion and light chemical peels as a resurfacing option. Using a powerfully tuneable laser device, the depth of the peel is completely customizable, ranging from zero downtime to 3 or 4 days of redness. With a NanoLaserPeel, the outside layers of the skin are precisely removed while the skin’s renewal process is restored by activating special messenger proteins.
While microdermabrasion and chemical peels are wonderful options for some, many of our patients have chosen the NanoLaserPeel as the most comfortable and effective when it comes to skin resurfacing during the summer.
