    SUN-SAVVY SKIN CARE, PART 2!


    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
    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.

    THERMIVA
    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.

    BOTOX AND FILLERS

    Looking for super-fast results to refresh your face? Our selection of neuromodulators (such as Botox) and fillers can address your frown lines and bring new fullness to your lips and cheeks. Come in for your FREE consultation, and let Dr. Summer and our team help you create a customized plan for that natural, healthy look you’re after.

    KYBELLA
    The double chin – it’s often one of the toughest facial issues to address! Kybella is a breakthrough FDA approved treatment that targets the unique fat under the chin with terrific results. 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.

    Make summer your season for refreshing and rejuvenating your look! Call us at 336-945-2076 for a consultation today!

    BE SUN-SAVVY, NOT SUN-SCARED!

    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:

    1. 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.
    2. Be generous with sunscreen application, and always reapply zealously every two hours, particularly if you’re in the water!
    3. 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.
    4. Try and avoid prolonged exposure during peak UVA and UVB power times, typically between 10 am and 2 pm.
    5. If you have to be out without protective clothing or sunscreen, try and limit your time to 15 minutes or so.

    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!

    Your Bridal Beauty Timeline

    YOUR BRIDAL BEAUTY TIMELINE

    Congratulations on your engagement, brides! What an exciting (and busy!) time this is. Of course you want to look your best, and we hope this outline of suggested times and products will help make your planning easier.

    SIX TO TWELVE MONTHS BEFORE YOUR BIG DAY

    Now’s the time to schedule procedures that take a bit more time for results to hit their peak. Make your appointment for a consultation designed to get started with a customized skincare and product protocol. You’ll want to start with body contouring now to address those stubborn lumps and bumps that exercise might not be getting to!

    SIX MONTHS OUT

    You’ll see maximum results when you start laser hair removal or electrolysis now. Address sun damage or age spots with laser and IPL treatments. Laser or sclerotherapy will zap unsightly spider veins, and skin-tightening procedures such as Ultherapy will lift loose or sagging skin. Kybella works wonders on any hint of a double chin.

    THREE MONTHS OUT

    Timing is key for maximizing the use of cosmetic fillers to treat lip lines, volume loss, and facial folds and wrinkles, so schedule those now. Microblading creates beautiful, natural brows using pigments mixed specifically for your hair and skin color. Start your peel and/or facial treatment series now to ensure glowing, youthful skin for the big day.

    FOUR TO SIX WEEKS OUT

    A Botox treatment now will soften harsh frown lines between the eyebrows, as well as crow’s feet and those horizontal expression lines on the forehead. The goal is always to look natural, not frozen, so be absolutely sure to look at before and after pictures of actual clients! Continue your facial/peel series to keep skin regenerating. And don’t forget your feet! A BabyFoot exfoliation will get your toes in perfect shape for that wedding pedicure.

    THE BIG WEEK!

    It’s finally here! You can make your eyes stand out with lash extensions, and add a little color with a personally pigmented spray tan. Make an appointment for a refining microdermabrasion treatment for your most gorgeous skin ever. And enjoy your glorious day, and all the best for a truly happily ever after!
