Here Are Treatments to Get That Won’t Keep You in the Shade All Summer

Summertime in the South is in full swing. The days are getting longer and hotter, which means long hours in the sun at your favorite lake front or out on the town. As the season shift, many of us are still battling the lackluster complexion that the winter months gifted us with, but reviving your glowing skin is easier than you think.


At Être Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center, we offer skincare treatments that you can have right in the full swing of summer that are quick, have little-to-no downtime, and won’t keep you tucked away in the shade.


1. SkinPen Microneedling: Boost Your Skin’s Collagen Production

The SkinPen Microneedling treatment is great for improving fine lines and wrinkles, reducing the appearance of scars (including acne scars), and evening out your skin tone and texture. With a state-of-the-art machine, a pen-like device is run across your skin creating thousands of micro injuries on the surface of your skin. These micro injuries trigger your body’s natural healing power by boosting its production of collagen, essentially healing itself from the inside out.


Why it’s the perfect treatment for summer: Unlike other minimally invasive options, microneedling has a very brief recovery period but still gives you noticeable results. While you will need to wear an SPF every day, you can get out and show off your gorgeous skin within a day or two.

2. Chemical Peel

Chemical peels are consistently gaining in popularity because of their ability to exfoliate and clarify the skin at the same time. At Être Cosmetic Dermatology & Laser Center, we offer Glycolic Acid, Salicylic acid, and combination (TCA and Jessner) peels. A chemical peel involves the application of one of these solutions mixed to the specific strength that your skin needs. After being left on for a short period of time, the chemical peel gently removes the skin’s outer layer, including dead skin cells, dry skin, hyperpigmentation, and texture, leaving a noticeable difference.


Why you should try one in the summer: No one wants to embrace summer with the dull, flaking, uneven skin of winter, and a chemical peel can be a low-commitment option to provide gorgeous results. Just remember to plan your chemical peel a week or two in advance of any special events or beach trips as your skin will need time to shed the old skin cells and allow your more luminous, new skin to shine. Of course, you will still need to apply SPF post-procedure or wear a stylish wide-rimmed hate when you’re out in the sun.

3. Fractional Skin Resurfacing

Fractional Co2 laser provides dramatic improvements to aging, discolored, and texturized skin without the discomfort or downtime associated with other ablative laser treatments. In this treatment, a fragmented laser is used to penetrate the skin and create tiny, controlled injuries. As the body repairs these micro injuries, the damaged skin is replaced by smooth, healthy skin.


Why it’s great for summertime: After a Fractional Skin Resurfacing treatment, the skin might be red and sensitive, but this should disappear over the next few days. Once your skin is healed, just make sure to protect it with your favorite brand of SPF every day.
