Summer is America’s favorite season. Whether you’re planning on setting sail, lounging by the pool, or jogging on the beach, there is no end to the fun in the sun this time of year. But unfortunately, our skin tends to get neglected during the summer. As schedules change and the thermometer creeps up, most of us don’t give much thought to the importance of skin care outside of a quick spritz of sunscreen on our way out the door. At Coastal Aesthetic, we want you to look radiant all the time. So we’ve rounded up some of our patient’s favorite summer treatments and compiled it into our summer skin care guide to keep you looking your best. Contact us today to set up your summer skincare maintenance schedule!
The First recommendation in our Summer Skin Care Guide is Diamond Glow is the perfect way to refresh your skin mid-summer. This gentle dermabrasion treatment removes the outermost layer of dead skin, exfoliates pores, and infuses the newly revealed skin with key nutrients and serums to leave your skin glowing and fresh. This treatment is especially popular before weddings and family pictures. Consider booking this treatment before your next vacation; your skin will look extra radiant in all your photos.
Long days in the sun can damage your skin and leave it feeling dry, dull, and depleted. Microneedling is an excellent in-office treatment that can revitalize your skin so it’s firmer, smoother, and tighter. Microneedling is a procedure that uses tiny needles to penetrate the skin resulting in a boost in collagen development. Creating micro-injuries in the skin stimulates its natural wound healing response, which increases collagen production. As a result, the skin becomes tighter, pores are less visible, and skin tone is brighter.
Sunspots are often an unwelcomed by-product of the summer sun. At Coastal Aesthetics, we offer a variety of treatments to remove sunspots. So if you want to end your summer looking fresh-faced and with less discoloration, consider booking a consultation to find out which option is best for you.
For example, Harmony XL Pro is a laser treatment that targets excess melanin in the skin. It’s a quick, easy treatment that can leave your skin looking revitalized and more evenly toned. Other popular options for sunspot removal are Diamond Glow and microneedling. No matter your aesthetic needs, Coastal Aesthetics has a great selection of services to achieve your goals.
