On average people spend about 1/6th of their lifetime attending to their appearance, and time spent each day increases in summer as the revealing clothing comes back out and social activity increases.
To get ready for summer we exercise more to drop a few pounds, shop online for fresh wardrobes, get spray tans, and schedule an appointment with our stylist for the perfect summer shade. But what about our skin?
Each season affects our skin differently. Below are some of the unique challenges to skin care during southern summers in North Alabama and Nashville.
Whether you’re getting ready for a wedding, packing for a tropical retreat, or just want to feel more confident in your skin, here are our favorite treatments to get your skin summer ready and keep it healthy and radiant all season long.
Botox is a popular injectable treatment that helps reduce the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. The treatment works by relaxing the muscles that cause wrinkles, which smooths out the skin. Botox is particularly beneficial for the summer months because it helps prevent the formation of new wrinkles caused by squinting or frowning in bright sunlight.
Your pre-summer secret weapon. Chemical peels are underutilized. The treatment involves applying a chemical solution to the skin, which causes it to peel and reveal smoother, brighter skin underneath. Soften lines, reduce acne scars, clear pores, and restore an even, radiant complexion. Trust us, the results are more than worth the “social” downtime.
HydraFacial is a multi-step facial treatment that can help cleanse, exfoliate, and hydrate your skin. The treatment utilizes a handheld device that uses gentle suction to cleanse the skin and clear clogged pores, then delivers a combination of serums, antioxidants, and hydration to your skin. HydraFacial is your go to for that clear, bright, glowy look we all want.
Dermal fillers are another popular choice for summer. They can help plump up areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging, such as the cheeks and lips. They can also help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Lips anyone?
Platelet-Rich Plasma (PRP) Therapy
PRP therapy is a cutting-edge treatment that uses your body’s own platelets to rejuvenate your skin. It involves drawing a small amount of blood from your arm, processing it to extract the platelets, and injecting the platelet-rich plasma back into your skin. This treatment can help improve the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and uneven skin tone, and leave your skin looking refreshed and radiant.
So during this year’s spring refresh, don’t forget about your skin! From Hydrfacials to Botox and chemical peels, aesthetic treatments will help you look and feel your best all summer long. And lastly, be sure to wear sunscreen daily to minimize skin damage and prolong your treatment results.
