There’s no reason you can’t enjoy your summer and have your aesthetic treatments too. There are plenty of low-downtime services that won’t interfere too much with your time in the sun. As long as you practice daily sunscreen application, you can easily get that natural summer glow with help from Skin Care Institute!
Here’s a look at a few of our favorite summer-approved skin treatments:
Also known as collagen induction therapy, we offer two advanced microneedling treatments that stimulate your natural healing response to produce smoother, more radiant skin where you need it. The first is SkinPen®, the first FDA-cleared microneedling device in the world, clinically proven to improve the appearance of neck wrinkles and facial acne scars safely and effectively. SkinPen microneedling works by penetrating the skin with tiny needles to create controlled micro-injuries, spurring vibrant new collagen and elastin growth. The SkinPen device provides a wide range of complexion improvements, including smoother, brighter skin, reduced acne scars and stretch marks, smaller pore size, diminished lines and wrinkles and more even skin tone. Significant results can be seen in the following days and weeks after treatment with one to two days of social downtime.
We also offer SYLFIRM X RF microneedling, the first and only FDA-cleared microneedling device that features Pulsed Wave and Continuous Wave Radio Frequency technology to target both skin laxity and pigmentation simultaneously. SYLFIRM X RF pairs microneedling with radiofrequency (RF) energy to create a synergistic boost of skin renewal, prompting new collagen growth for tighter, more youthful skin. SYLFIRM X RF microneedling can help tighten lax skin, minimize the appearance of scars, smooth lines, reduce uneven texture, diminish age spots, brown spots and sunspots, improve stretch marks and much more. Best of all, since SYLFIRM X RF uses patented exosome technology which helps speed healing and boost your results, there is minimal to no social downtime. Enjoy immediate results following your treatment with continued improvements as new collagen is produced for up to three months.
Though a go-to year-round treatment, HydraFacial MD is especially popular during the summer months. Using water and potent skin-revitalizing serums, HydraFacial MD helps hydrate, nourish and protect skin, which is key during a season of high sun exposure and environmental damage. The summer is also a time for congested skin from sweat, sunscreen and debris. But thanks to HydraFacial’s spiral action wand, it combines cleansing, exfoliation, extraction and infusion to clear away impurities and reveal an immediate glow in less than an hour. HydraFacial MD offers a multitude of benefits, including brighter skin, smaller pores, reduced blemishes and redness, diminished pigmentation irregularities, softer lines and wrinkles and smoother skin. Plus, there’s no downtime or irritation, making this an easy on-the-go summer-safe treatment.
With little to no downtime, injectable treatments like Botox® and dermal fillers are perfect for the summer. Botox can take care of those pesky frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines, while fillers restore facial volume and smooth away creases and folds. If you want to enhance your natural beauty for a special event like a wedding or summer trip, we recommend scheduling your Botox and filler appointments at least two to four weeks prior. Though injectables provide almost immediate improvements, it does take a few days to weeks for them to fully settle in and any side effects like bruising or swelling to subside.
