- Use a good physical sunscreen, particularly on the face and décolleté. Don’t be afraid to splurge on the sunscreen you use in these areas as they are particularly susceptible to sun damage.
- Be generous with sunscreen application, and always reapply zealously every two hours, particularly if you’re in the water!
- Make a big, floppy hat your friend and style statement! A hat can protect vulnerable areas we often forget to cover with sunscreen, such as the scalp and ears.
- Try and avoid prolonged exposure during peak UVA and UVB power times, typically between 10 am and 2 pm.
- If you have to be out without protective clothing or sunscreen, try and limit your time to 15 minutes or so.
You may have been hearing a lot lately about body contouring, and with good reason. Men and women who have made healthy changes to their bodies with diet and exercise are looking for safe, non-surgical alternatives to address those stubborn pockets of fat (think double chin, love handles or muffin tops!) that refuse to budge. “Body contouring” is a blanket term used for minimally invasive procedures that help firm and tighten lax skin in these areas, as well as targeting underlying fatty deposits. There are several FDA-approved therapies helping these clients see real, lasting results. So what are they?
SculpSure is a breakthrough treatment method using laser energy to literally melt fat away. Patented applicators deliver energy through the skin that specifically targets fat cells, allowing the body’s natural processes to fully eliminate them. Unique laser wavelengths ensure that only fatty tissues are impacted, which results in no damage to surrounding tissues and minimal discomfort during the procedure. The entire treatment lasts just 25 minutes, and there is no downtime afterward, so you can get back to normal activity immediately.
Smartlipo uses both laser energy and gentle suction to permanently eliminate fat from problem areas such as the abdomen, upper arms, buttocks and thighs. In this minimally-invasive procedure, targeted light energy gently melts fat, which is then suctioned out of the body through a tiny incision. This simultaneous treatment method works to coagulate tissue and stimulate collagen as well, which keeps dimpling or sagging skin at bay.
Kybella is the first and only FDA-approved injectable treatment to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin. When injected, Kybella disrupts fat cells, which are then reabsorbed by the body and eliminated. Patients typically need two treatments, and will see optimal results from the procedure in approximately 12 weeks.

Long, sunny days, beach trips, and more relaxed schedules are here! Summertime is the perfect time to think about your long-term wellness and aesthetic goals. There are some skincare procedures that you need to avoid in the summer to protect your skin, but the warmer, sunnier months are also a terrific time for body contouring and fillers, just to name a few. Here are some of our favorite treatments to add to your regimen:
Ultherapy is the ONLY non-invasive FDA approved treatment for loose skin on the neck, chin, and brow. Focused ultrasound lifts and tightens skin with little to no downtime. Ultherapy stimulates new collagen production, and your results will improve over three to six months.
If you’re having to run to the ladies’ room during your spin class, or experiencing discomfort or pain during intimacy, ThermiVa may be the answer you’re looking for. ThermiVa uses Radio Frequency to tighten laxity in the skin caused by aging, childbirth or weight loss. The treatment creates energy beneath the skin that wakes up collagen production, helping to improve issues with mild incontinence and sensitivity.

Kybella disrupts fat cells, allowing the body to break them down permanently. Dr. Summer can tailor your treatment plan to your specific needs, scheduling treatments around your schedule for maximum results. There’s a bit of downtime involved due to swelling immediately following the procedure, and you can expect to see your best results in four to six months.

There’s a reason that every celebrity dermatologist and age-defying beauty sings the praises of sunscreen…it works! We’re big believers in the protective genius of a good physical sunscreen, particularly on the face and décolletage. But sunlight can be our friend when we’re armed with good information.
It’s important to have a healthy respect for what the sun can do for the human body – both positively and negatively. A great deal of the sun science reported on these days is harshly critical of virtually all UVA and UVB exposure. As a result, for many of us being out in the sun seems like a recipe for future skin cancer. But smart sunning has amazing benefits for both physical and mental well-being.
One of the most important ways the sun contributes to overall health is through the production of Vitamin D. This powerhouse vitamin is vital for strong bones, and has been linked to reduced risks of multiple sclerosis and certain types of cancer. The sun is also powerfully effective at reducing the negative impact of Seasonal Affective Disorder (SAD), and helping to maintain your body’s healthy sleep cycle.
So how can we wisely enjoy our seasons in the sun? Here are a few essential tips:
If you’re interested in addressing past sun damage that might be showing on your face, chest, or hands, be sure to call our office and set up a free consultation with Dr. Summer. And start using these suggestions to get out and enjoy all the benefits of sunshine without worry!Click here for the full post
