Is Your Skin Summer Ready? Non-Surgical Treatments to Revitalize the Skin

One of the most common complaints we hear from patients is that after the change in seasons and temperature, their skin always seems to look dull or damaged. The truth is, they aren’t in correct. Changes in amount of humidity, heat and other factors can dry out skin and accentuate the signs of aging such as wrinkles and scarring. 

Likewise, hotter weather means lightweight, comfortable make-up is an absolute must for patients who want to say cool and look their best. Unfortunately, patients with discoloration caused by age spots or uneven skin tone may find that these options leave them feeling uncovered and their areas of concern exposed. 

To help address these concerns, patients have several non-surgical treatment solutions to choose from

Chemical Peels

Easily one of the most recognizable cosmetic procedures, chemical peels use different strength chemicals to gently remove the damaged upper-most layers of the skin’s surface. There are several different chemicals that can be used or combined, depending on a person’s current skin condition and their goals. While the treatment requires that patients stay out of the sun for the first few days following treatment, the long-term results are worth it. Within a few days, patients notice a substantial difference in the tone and texture of their skin and are thrilled by the results.

Laser Therapy

In other instances, uneven skin tone and wrinkles can the factor leading to diminished self-confidence. For these patients, laser facial rejuvenation offers an excellent, non-invasive solution. This procedure uses a non-ablative laser to deeply penetrate skin and target damaged skin cells and tissue. This approach also facilitates skin cell growth, triggering the body’s natural healing process and stimulating much needed collagen growth. 

Laser facial rejuvenation goes beyond treating the traditional signs of aging. At Desert Med Spa, experienced cosmetic specialist Dr. Cosgrove uses the innovative technology to reduce clear active acne, reduce the appearance of acne scarring, treat chronic redness and reduce pore size.

Protect Your Investment

Summer months often mean beach vacations and more time spent enjoying the outdoors. While this can be a great way to increase vitamin D consumption, these activities can also increase your risk of skin cancer. While the condition is among the most common form of cancer, it is fortunately also among the most preventive. If your summer plans include lots of time outside, be sure to wear plenty of sunscreen, cover up with breathable fabrics, and schedule routine visits to your dermatologist. These steps can make the difference in early detection and treatment.
