3 Low-Downtime Cosmetic Treatments to Get You Back in The Summer Sun Fast
Between family vacations and reunions, summer can seem just as busy as the holidays. Taking time for yourself can seem almost impossible in the midst of these travel plans. Luckily, patients can sneak in some much needed me time with these easy, low-downtime cosmetic treatments.
Nothing quite says “youthful” like smooth skin and full lips. However, summer heat, sun exposure, and the elements can gradually wear away at skin cells and ultimately leaving patients looking older than they really are. Long days outside can be especially damaging to skin cells as UV rays have been shown to accelerate the aging process and trigger the development or deepening of fine lines and wrinkles.
If your symptoms of aging are looking more pronounced than usual, a quick visit to your cosmetic dermatologist for dermal fillers might be the right solution. Also known as injectables, dermal fillers are a gel-like substance designed to add volume to areas of the face where the aging process has caused the skin to lose its full appearance. Some of the most common applications of dermal fillers include the lips, around the mouth, beneath the eyes and cheeks. As the procedure can be completed in just a few minutes, injectables are an excellent pre-vacation touch-up.
Looking for another way to freshen up your look this summer? Facial rejuvenation has come a long way in recent years, giving patients plenty of options to choose from. For our patients who want to remove dead or damaged skin cells and make the most of the most of their pre-planned summer glow, chemical peels have long been the go-to procedure for patients. Light chemical peels that penetrate only the top layer of skin can serve as an important “monthly exfoliation” that removes dead skin while stimulating healthy collagen production. The result is beautiful, glowing skin all summer long.
While the temperature may be moderate all year-round, summer weather sends our patients to the beaches more often than any other time of year. If the idea of showing off your figure has you reaching for a cover-up, consider non-surgical body contouring. Over the years, alternatives like CoolSclpting have become a go-to for countless women (and men!) looking to remove stubborn pockets of fat from their figure without resorting to surgery.
At Etre, CoolSculpting is one of our most popular summertime cosmetic treatments. This body sculpting procedure uses the process of cryolipolysis to target and freeze excess fat cells in certain regions of the body. In the weeks following each session, the individual’s body naturally metabolizes the dead cells out of the body – no need for incisions or sutures. For patients who work hard through diet and exercise to reach their ideal figure, CoolSculpting can be the last step in achieving their ultimate goals.
