One of the most common misconceptions about summer skin care is that people should avoid facial treatments during this season. Indeed, some facials are not meant for this time of the year, but there is an array of options you can still choose from. The sun rays, dry summer wind, sand, and heat can take a toll on your skin, so why not give it a boost with the help of professionals.
Microdermabrasion is becoming one of the most popular treatments, not only for summer but also year-long. Since it’s gentle, it's meant for various skin types. What’s best about microdermabrasion is that it targets a range of problems, starting with dehydration, uneven skin texture, impurities, acne scars, and more. Chemical exfoliants are not the best option during summer months, so this physical exfoliation will remove the dead skin cells and leave your face smooth, bright, radiant, and healthy.
The HydraFacialMD® microdermabrasion method is what you might be interested in if you want a fresh-looking, hydrated complexion with just a single treatment. It features anti-aging peptides, moisturizers, antioxidants, and is often used as an acne scar treatment. At the same time, it prevents acne scar to appear darker during summer months. This is not a painful treatment, which is another reason why you should check it out this summer. The instant boost of glow it will deliver to your face will be worth both the time and the money. It lasts less than an hour and the benefits are numerous, so why not give it a go?
Dermaplaning does sound like a scary and crazy thing to do to your skin, but it’s painless and delivers a perfectly smooth skin surface. It’s done with a special blade that removes the dead skin cells together with the fuzzy hair on your face. This gives an instant result, a smoother complexion, brighter, healthier-looking skin.
Another huge pro of this method is the fact that all the skincare products that you use will be able to penetrate the skin much better after dermaplaning. So many ladies decide to do it before a very important event because it helps with flawless makeup application. People with dry skin are the ones who’ll benefit a lot from this treatment. It’s recommended that you do it once a month because the results last around 4 weeks. Once the facial is done you’re ready to get back to your everyday life right away.
Get your skin plumper and radiant for summer with this very popular method. Microneedling is minimally-invasive and leaves you with just a little bit of redness once the treatment is done. The tiny needles that will penetrate your skin create micro-injuries that promote the production of elastin and collagen. These two proteins are responsible for that ageless look and a healthy-looking face.
Aside from the anti-aging properties, microneedling delivers a smoother complexion with a natural glow. The procedure starts with a numbing cream, which means there is no need to be scared at all. Another huge trend you might want to consider is nano needling, a technique that features even tinier needles and less redness. Don’t forget to apply sunscreen to protect your face after the facial.
The name practically says it all: injectable mesotherapy injects substances for better-looking skin. But, don’t be alarmed. Just like microneedling, mesotherapy uses tiny needles that deliver the substances into the skin. The treatment is far from painful, it can just cause a little discomfort. You’ll forget about it once you see your face younger, brighter, nourished, glowing, and tighter. The substances that can be used range from vitamins, antioxidants, amino acids, hyaluronic acid, and more.
Since we’ve all been quarantining for months, it’s officially time to get back to the new normal. Aside from great skin care tips to practice indoors that you’ve probably been following, you should still consider getting a professional treatment that will target all the problems you might feel insecure about, or provide you with a very healthy glow. Summer is the season when your skin needs a lot of love, sunscreen, great skincare regimen, and at least one of these 4 great facials.
