5 Ways to Look Refreshed This Summer

Summer is a great time to improve your look, as the warmer months are some of the busiest travel months of the year. Before you plan your summer vacation or family trip, consider one of these phenomenal treatments to rejuvenate your appearance.

Microdermabrasion

Microdermabrasion is a gentle, chemical-free exfoliation technique. This treatment removes the outermost layer of skin, which is mostly composed of dead skin cells. As a result, patients experience increased blood flow and increased collagen production. This is great for treating wrinkles, large pores, and creating a smooth, even complexion.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels provide a deep cleansing treatment for the skin. These come in varying strengths, allowing each patient to get the most out of

their treatment. Chemical peels can produce a healthy, radiant glow while removing dirt and oil build up on the face.

Injectables & Dermal Fillers

Injectables and dermal fillers are some of the most popular treatments because they create instant results and require no downtime. These treatments can diminish wrinkles and lines and even increase volume in the face. There are different products designed for different areas of the face, allowing patients to achieve the exact look they desire.

Skin Tightening

Skin tightening is a non-invasive procedure that can create dramatic results with the use of radiofrequency energy. This painless procedure increases collagen production in the skin, creating results that improve over time. With no downtime required, this can be a great solution for reducing wrinkles, dimples, and sagging skin.

Laser Resurfacing

Laser resurfacing uses heat energy to stimulate collagen production and repair the signs of aging in the skin. This is a versatile treatment that can be used nearly anywhere on the body, resulting in a steady improvement in skin tone and texture after treatment.

Microdermabrasion

If you’re looking for radiant skin in just one visit, consider microdermabrasion, a non-invasive, chemical-free exfoliation process. We use diamond tip microdermabrasion, which is safe for both the body and face, to remove the top layer of the epidermis. The diamond tip is used as a mechanical exfoliant, acting as a tiny pressure washer. In addition to removing the top layer of dead skin cells, the procedure results in increased blood flow, collagen production, and new skin cell development.

Chemical Peels

Chemical peels come in a great variety, offering varying levels of strengths. These treatments remove dead skin cells, reducing the appearance of discoloration and wrinkles along the way. After treatment, your skin is left with a smooth, healthy glow. These customizable treatments allow every patient to get the most out of their chemical peel.

Laser Resurfacing

The EndyMed™ laser resurfacing treatment not only gives you smoother, healthier-looking skin, but also improves the tone of your skin. It combines advanced energy-based technology with the precision of a computer-guided treatment to give you outstanding results. The energy from the system heats the layers of skin to stimulate collagen development and repair the signs of aging.
