Summertime means outdoor fun like lazy lounging by the pool or a day of sand and surf at the beach. But as much as you may look forward to summer activities, you may be a trifle hesitant to dress the part.
Revealing swimsuits, shorts, and sun dresses are unforgiving when it comes to revealing cheesy cellulite, sagging skin, and stubborn, unwanted hair. But don’t let these nuisances spoil your day in the sun. You can get your skin in summertime shape and enjoy every minute of your outdoor fun in the sun. Here are our top procedures for beautiful summer skin.
Think of microdermabrasion as a facial on steroids. It’s powerful, and the results are pretty phenomenal. During the process the very top layer of the epidermis is removed and along with it, age spots, scars, and blotchy skin pigmentation. In addition, microdermabrasion stimulates collagen production which contributes to firm and toned skin.
Laser Hair Removal
Laser hair removal can be an excellent addition to your summertime bag of tricks. Unwanted hair from your bikini area, back, arms, and legs can be easily removed with long term results. After treatments, your skin is incredibly soft and smooth without nasty nicks and cuts or messy waxing. However, it may take more than one treatment to get the results you want, though improvement is excellent. Laser hair removal works best on dark hair rather than light.
Cellulite is one of the major causes of embarrassment and self-consciousness when it comes to wearing summertime fashions. It’s caused by an accumulation of fat cells underneath the skin pushing upward while connective tissue pulls down. The result is dimpling referred to as cellulite.
Fortunately, there a several cosmetic procedures that can zap, melt, or suck stubborn fat away. Don’t expect to see the final results right away, however. Depending on the procedure, it can take weeks or months to get the look you want.
Spider Vein Removal
If you’re longing for smooth and flawless legs but unsightly spider veins are holding you back, there’s good news. With a series of treatments, either laser treatments or sclerotherapy, you can take care of your vein problems with little discomfort – a far cry from painful surgical techniques.
Results are long-lasting and sometimes permanent. After treatment, you’ll need to include extra sun protection of the area.
Whether you want plumper lips or fewer wrinkles for your time on the beach, dermal fillers can deliver. This relatively painless procedure involves injecting a substance into the skin to add fullness, firmness, and plumpness. Collagen fillers taken from cow hide have traditionally been used but now man-made fillers are becoming more popular. Restylane and Teosyal are two such fillers that can be quickly administered with little down time.
