Summer is officially in session & that means more time in the sun. As we all know, too much sun without the proper protection can cause dark spots, skin damage, increase the aging process & more. Here are some recommendations on what treatments & products you should add to your skincare routine to keep your skin healthy, hydrated & protected from the sun.
One of the Best Summer Treatments Safe for the Sun:
There are several treatments that are great for reducing dark spots, fine lines, wrinkles & sun damage, but some treatments not only require downtime but can cause photosensitivity. In the summer months, a treatment like the Laser Facials is a great solution to keep your skin glowing & hydrated.
Laser Facials are one of the easiest and safest ways to improve your skin. Laser therapy targets deep layers below the skin surface and helps stimulate the growth of new collagen that increases the skin’s firmness and structure. Youthtopia Med Spa uses he Photofacial YAG Laser facial for this specific treatment to gently penetrates the surface of the skin. The treatment starts out with a deep cleanse then uses the long pulse laser technology to stimulate collagen. This type of treatment is a great way to: shrink your pores, lighten dark spots, reduce the appearance of fine lines & wrinkles and improve your overall skin tone, texture and brightness.
Laser Facials require zero downtime & recovery and helps create smooth & glowing skin. It is safe to resume normal activity after this treatment & creates a natural process to improve your skin.
You may experience temporary redness, flushing, a slight sunburn but there are no major side effects associated with this treatment. Your esthetician will examine you before & after the Laser Facial & make the proper recommendations.
The Best Products for Summer:
While out in the sun, one of the most important things you need in your skincare routine is a product with SPF. We recommend the Revision Intellishade TruPhysical that contains SPF 45. This product is not just a sunscreen, it is an anti-aging moisturizer that is also tinted to give you the coverage you need!
Another Summer must-have is the ZO Skin Health Daily Skincare Program Kit. This Kit contains an Exfoliating Cleanser, Exfoliating Polish , Complexion Renewal Pads , & Daily Power Defense. The program helps preserve your skin complexation and improve your skin tone while keeping you skin hydrated. It also calms & soothes irritated skin, unclogs pores and much more. It is a great way to keep your skin glowing and fresh during the summer.
